Mavis has her baby!

29 Dec

I love the mix of murder, romance, and humor that author J. D. Robb has in her “in Death” futuristic mystery novels. The lastest, Born in Death, ends with Mavis having her baby but only after her best friend, Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the New York Police and Security Department, investigates two brutal torture-murders and tries to locate a missing friend of Mavis who is also pregnant. Eve also has to find time to buy a baby present for Mavis, host a baby shower at her home and, with her husband Roarke at her side, attend birthing classes. Not only do Robb’s characterisations make these people come alive, but she deftly describes the murder scenes and autopsies without being too graphic. The writing makes all these elements work together wonderfully. Reneebornindeath

    I just finished reading this book and loved it. As a reader of all the J. D. Robb “Eve Dallas” books, I recommend you read these books in order. It helps with the story line and the building of the characters relationships.
