For all of you that have read through all the In Death books and are dying for your next Roarke fix…your wait is almost over! The newest installment, Celebrity in Death, is scheduled to hit shelves this Tuesday (Feb 21st) and it’s definitely something to celebrate!!
In Death is a lengthy futuristic series written by Nora Roberts under her pseudo name, J.D. Robb. It features New York Police detective Eve Dallas and her rich and hunky husband, Roarke (just Roarke…no last name). It takes place in New York several years in the future; you’ll see lasers being toted instead of guns, virtual reality machines are a mainstay in most households, and you only have to go to your local salon to lose weight or get any other beauty enchantments you want.
I’ve come to the series late myself and always have hated being late to the party. Unfortunately, I’m nowhere near ready to read this latest installment, but I can’t wait to read it when I do get there!
Celebrity in Death is the 34th full length novel of the series and there are also several novellas that go with the series as well. Here is the book blurb via goodreads:
“Lieutenant Eve Dallas is no party girl, but she’s managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity-packed bash celebrating The Icove Agenda, a film based on one of her famous cases. It’s a little spooky seeing the actress playing her, who looks almost like her long-lost twin. Not as unsettling, though, as seeing the actress who plays Peabody—drowned in the lap pool on the roof of the director’s luxury building.
Talented but rude, and widely disliked, K. T. Harris had made
an embarrassing scene during dinner. Now she’s at the center of a crime scene—and Eve is more than ready to get out of her high heels and strap on her holster, to step into the role she was born to play: cop.”
So what are you waiting for? Go and get this book now and enjoy the ride!
