    One thought on “Celebrity in Death”

    1. As always, I’m impressed with the fact I’m at book #34 and love everything about the characters and story line that JD Robb has written! I always feel like I’m coming home to friends and family when I read about the gang! Each book is a different murder case, and somehow the author keeps the cases fresh and exciting!Of course all I have to say is Roarke! Those of you that have fallen in love with him will know exactly how I feel about that man!!! Him and Eve have the best relationship, and [...]

    2. I will never tire of this series. Nope. Never. I just love Eve and Roarke and all the others. How J.D. Robb does it I haven’t a clue. I am kind of happy in one way being late to this party. I never have to wait for the next one to come out!! A good friend just said to me that I will probably finish this series by the end of the year. I panicked for a minute thinking what am I going to do without Eve, Roarke and the whole gang. But…ew…I have lots of .5’s to read. 😊I listened to the aud [...]

    3. A very good installment in the Death series. Eve is completely authentic as a tough police woman, but I like that Roarke sees her in a more intimate way as his wife. Yet he embraces her as a strong woman and stands by her side. That's a good man! The mystery was good, although it did drag a bit towards the end. Still, it was an excellent book despite that fact.Overall rating: 4.5/5.0 stars.Reviewed for Affaire de Coeur in the February 2012 issue. affairedecoeur.

    4. This one started out pretty fun because we have our favorite characters meeting their actor counterparts who are playing them in a movie about one of the earlier cases. As usual, it's all fun and games until someone murders Peabody well, fake Peabodyre like an evil twinFake Peabody was such a jerk that pretty much everyone wanted to kill her. I kinda wanted to kill her. And, we all know how unusual it is for me to want to kill a book character.How dare you, Mittens! You don't know me! You don't [...]

    5. Book 34 and still as good as the previous books in the series. The crime might not have been as gruesome as in other books but it still kept me interested. Eve. I adore her. I love her sassiness, her spirit, her sexiness, her independence, her attitude in a "male dominated" world. Most of her colleagues are men. Roarke. what can I say that I haven't already said before. Sexy, adores "his darling Eve", always ready to drop what he is doing to help her out. He is perfect.Peabody is as fabulous as [...]

    6. As I’ve talked about many times before on the blog, the In Death books are my all time favorite series. The newest installment, Celebrity in Death by J.D. Robb, is no exception! It releases today, and fans of the series should definitely expect an awesome addition to Eve & Roarke’s adventures.Now, as long time fans know, these books are oftentimes pretty much the same. I obviously don’t mean that as an insult – I just mean that we basically know what to expect by now. J.D. Robb defin [...]

    7. Quick reviewCover: Follows previous molds. RatingNC-17 for a few sexual scenes. Thumbs Up: 4.5 Overall: Really GoodCharacters: Well written as alwaysPlot: Was interesting.Page Turner: Yes. Series Cont.? Yes, definitely RecommendYes.Book Boyfriend: JulianSUMMARY (50 word or less)J.D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts) wrote another stellar tale in the Eve Dallas series (in Death series). This story was intended to be less heavy than the last and a slightly more than average case. I wasn’t blow away by it, [...]

    8. This is the longest series I follow and it's still the best.I've said it before, but it bears repeating: I want to be Eve, be married to Roarke, exchange snarky barbs with Summerset, be BFF with Mavis and have Leonardo design my wardrobe, have Peabody as my partner and be disgusted by McNab's fashion style, have Feeney as my mentor, have tea with Dr. Mira, be harassed by Trina The list goes on and on. I just love this series!

    9. I never knew how much I looked forward to the chase scenes, shootings, stabbing and all the other excitement that permeated these books, until I read this one. I never thought I would find myself saying that an Eve Dallas book could be boring, but this one was.Eve, Roarke and Dehlia have been invited to the party that is celebrating the the movie (vid) "The Icove Agenda". While there, nasty words are exchanged between the actress playing Peabody and almost everyone who is at the party. Naturally [...]

    10. I seem to be in the minority on my opinion of this book. I'm a huge fan of Nora Roberts and the In Death series. Huge. But I felt this installment was lacking. There was no action at all and little emotion. Maybe I'm just getting bored with the series, but I was disappointed. I judge a book by how easy it is to put it down and it took me 3 days to read it when normally I get through an In Death in less than a day.

    11. ”“Celebrity murders,” he muttered. “They’ll probably make another goddamn vid.” At Eve’s stunned, slightly horrified expression, he smiled. “You could make book on it,” he said. “Keep me updated. And don’t be late for the media conference.”“Shit,” Eve said when he’d gone out. “Shit. He could be right.”“Who’d play me in this one? I mean, it’s really wild, isn’t it? Somebody playing me investigating the murder of somebody who was playing me. And then there [...]

    12. I'm glad I re-read Origin in Death before Celebrity in Death. It probably wasn't strictly necessary, but having the details fresh in my mind added on an extra layer of fun for me. Anywho, I practically stood on the front porch waiting for the UPS guy and promptly devoured the book in about two hours. Probably going to re-read parts before bed. So what to tell you? Well, the person I thought did it didn't, Eve gets another mag coat, and there are some terrific Peabody/McNab moments. Nadine also g [...]

    13. In this installment, there's going to be a movie about the Icove case (Origin in Death).  Eve and Peabody got invited to the movie set and met their celebrity counterparts.  That night, during dinner the celebrity counterpart of Peabody is found floating facedown in the swimming pool.  We have celebrities as suspects.  Let the media circus begin.Eve is being her usual badass self which I love.   "If somebody doesn't call me a bitch once a day, I figure I'm not doing my job."It has been 34 [...]

    14. Thirty-fourth in the In Death futuristic romantic suspense series revolving around Eve Dallas and Roarkem… This one is about the Icove case being made into a movie.My TakeIt was good. I also think of it as a bridge novel in that it carries on from Nadine having written the true crime book about the Icove case (see Origin in Death and we are in on the shenanigans behind filming the movie. We still have its world premiere coming up---hence my designation as a bridge.Could be the kiss of death--- [...]

    15. Ich bin ein Fan der Eve Dallas Reihe. Muss gestehen, dass ich zwischenzeitlich aber genug hatte, den jeder Band ist genau gleich. Nun habe ich zwei ausgesetzt und muss sagen, es war schön wieder "zurückzukehren" und allem Anschein nach habe ich auch nichts verpasst. Alles beim Alten: schön, spannend, Sex und solide Polizeiarbeit -und ÜBERRASCHUNG diesmal fand die von Eve über alles verhasste Party am Anfang und nicht am Ende des Buches statt ;)

    16. Okay, I know that every book after NY2D is anticlimatic, but I did enjoy this one. A very different twist/story line and isn't that what it's all about?Some good banter between Peabody and Eve - and we learn about Peabody's new pink cowboy boots!!!Nadine plays a bigger role not only as Eve's friend but a very good investigative reporter and interviewer - really liked her role in that.I also liked where Eve actually contacted Summerset to book a "flight" for some cops to pick up evidence in Calif [...]

    17. 4,5 starsWhile I (almost)sad to see Roarke's scene become less than New York to Dallas, I enjoy Eve and Peabody partnership here. Also, finally the investigation back to basic (like guess who's the real culprit are).At last, Roarke never do me wrong. I guess, I will always smitten by him, and all my friend already tired to hear I'm gushing after him everyday ;)

    18. So many times authors start off a series with a really well-developed set of characters and a great plot idea, but over time the author seems to forget that people (whether fictional or real) are changed by the events that occur. It becomes increasing frustrating to the faithful series reader, and they become bored when the author fails to allow the characters to change and grow over time. JD Robb's readers keep coming back for more, because the characters remain the heart of the In Death series [...]

    19. I've generally enjoyed the In Death books, but I felt like this one was really phoned in. It had all the basic plot points of a Matlock show. Obvious plot point dialog (Peabody, before first death: "I saw soon-to-be-victim banging on a trailer door, yelling and cussing! Plot point alert!"), too many suspects to count, and no real explanation of how Eve decided on the one that ended up being the villain (no real red herrings either). Also, several scenes in the book are spent looking for a man wh [...]

    20. This one was lots of fun. The Icove Agenda, Nadine’s blockbuster book, is being made into a movie. This means there are actors running around who look, at look superficially, like Eve and Roarke and Peabody and McNab, etc. Which creeps Eve out, especially when she is expected to attend a dinner, at the home of the director, with the cast and directors and producer. After the dinner, they all go into the home theater and watch the gag reel. Shortly thereafter, the actress who plays Peabody, K. [...]

    21. This is another solid one. The fact that the case centres around the movie version of one of Eve's previous cases certainly adds a level of interest. Loved Peabody getting annoyed about the actress playing her getting killed, and everyone getting a bit freaked out over it. Then loved Peabody getting even more annoyed when it turned out said actress was a terrible person.The cast of characters around the movie was interesting. Liked that Eve and Roarke were essentially at the scene of the crime.N [...]

    22. Love this series and this one had all of the players, even if it was just for a brief time! Great story with lots of outrageous character, most of them celebrities so it makes sense. Having Nadine's book about the Icove case made into a movie leads to murder and of course Eve, Roarke, Peabody, McNabb and Mira are all there. Thirty four books in and I am still loving this series!I listened to the audio and Susan Ericksen is wonderful! She brings all the characters to life and makes the stories ev [...]

    23. Teensy bit predictable in places and very little action. I really enjoyed it, but it just doesn't measure up to the really great installments in this series. It's nothing I can totally put my finger on, aside from what I mentioned first, but it's just something. Also, real sick of this analysis/anal thing but it didn't show up as much as it had previously, so there's that.

    24. Celebrity in Death has all its promises when the premise says that Nadine Furst’s Icove’s Agenda will be filmed. With all this and that, of course our lieutenant Eve Dallas will be meeting Hollywood’s glitz and glamour while she will be involved into a lot interviews and publicity since she’s the main character of the film. My only issue that I am not giving this a 5-star is that I was expecting of one sick joke to play around Eve’s skills as the Hollywood would try to film it for real [...]

    25. 3.5 starsHmmm I don't know what I really feel about this one. I liked the beginning as usual. I thought it was interesting for Eve to have been so part of the murder as well as being the cop investigating it. I loved Peabody as usual, her spirit just brings happiness wherever she is around. I'm not so certain on the whodunit part. I think for everything that happened that this book could have been way shorter. I found myself bored at some points, it was just o long. I also did not like the seria [...]

    26. I really enjoyed this installment. My favorite books are the ones were Eve and Roarke are at odds, and though that wasn't the case here I found the case interesting and the usual cast of characters engaging. There was quite a bit of humor laced throughout. The whodunit was pretty easy to figure out but I enjoy watching Eve puzzle her way through the evidence.

    27. I've been working away at this, and last night finished it by trying out reading/listening with my Kindle Fire and the Whispersync feature for the last few chapters. I was able to set the audio speed at 1.25 and didn't notice any significant difference.

    28. **4-1/2 Stars**One of the better of what I've come to think of as "Mid-Period" Eve Dallas mysteries, when the series was settling into a comfortable "hangout book" groove: You spent time with characters you like/love, there was a spot of murder to keep things from being boring (mostly to Eve!), a little bit of character growth (this time mostly from Peabody and McNab), and a lot of witty dialogue as the mystery gets solved. This one has the edge on most as it's set in the Glamorous World of Movi [...]

    29. I love J.D. Robb books in which is Nora Roberts. I listen to J.D. Robb as audiobooks and it makes the books very interesting.J.D.Robb, Janet Evanovich, James Patterson, Robert Parker, and Sandra Brown I listen on audiobooks.

    30. (Mar) I always like to note that to me these are contemporary romances vs pnr, even if they are a bit futuristic (only a few things scream I'm taking place in the future, like the auto chef and no guns). They could be romantic suspense, but really, they are not that either, as the main characters are not usually in danger. I also usually like to note that while most of the books in the In Death series can technically be read as stand alone books, they read best when you read in order. There is c [...]
