Then, back in New York, Eve quickly catches a case.  Each of the victims have been the best at what they do and each killed with unusual weapons that were left at the scene.  And, it soon becomes apparent that Eve is dealing with the most dangerous kind of killer; the thrill seeker!

I found myself really enjoying this book.  I loved seeing the tender moments in Ireland with Roarke’s kin.  I loved seeing Sean’s excitement when interacting with Eve and her learning to deal with kids.  I enjoyed the sweet moments, especially when Eve unveiled her anniversary gift to Roarke, I loved seeing Brian as he always puts a smile on my face.  Eve’s mistrust of the farm animals is comical and, of course there is the always fun business of the cock waking you up!

“There! There it is again! What language is that?”

From the bed, Roarke shifted. “I believe it’s known as rooster.”

With the weapon at her side, she stared at him, slack-jawed. “Are you fucking kidding me?”

“Not a bit. It’s morning, more or less, and that’s a cock signaling the dawn.”

“A cock?”

“I’d say. I don’t think Sinead and her man want you to stun their rooster, but I have to say, Lieutenant, you make a fascinating picture.”

She heaved out a breath, set her weapon down. “Jesus Christ, we may as well be on another planet.” She slid back into bed. “And if your cock gets any ideas about signaling the day, remember I’ve got a weapon.”

Some of my favorite moments in this book was from Eve and Roarke’s brief time in Ireland!

Then, we had back to New York for an interesting murder investigation.  I didn’t feel this was a real suspenseful case, but it was entertaining.  The killers were discovered pretty early on, but yet it was never boring and it kept my interest throughout.

We get to see, yet again, how well Eve and Roarke work together doing cop business no matter how insulting it can be to Roarke at times!  I also enjoyed the little show they put on arguing in public.  It was a lot of fun to read and I can’t wait to see what case they delve into next!
