3.75 StarsI enjoyed it, albeit not as much as the first one Regardless, I am loving Eve and Roarke and am having fun with this series so far.

Eve has to figure out who the serial killer is This one is offing high profile, successful women She tries to deny her lurve for Roarke Major angst ensues She admits she loves Roarke and eventually finds the killer I really like Roarke I dislike Eve There is nothing likable about her I don t get what Roarke sees in her Yes, she is humanized by her interactions with her BFF Mavis and a couple others, but I still find her annoying.I don t think this series is for me.
5 stars Romantic SuspenseOkay, I think I m officially hooked on this series After reading and loving Naked in Death, I immediately jumped right into reading this, and it s another great book in an addictive series.I find the futuristic elements interesting, but I like that it s not too distracting to the story and characters Lieutenant Eve Dallas is a complex character who I sort of feel a love hate relationship towards because her toughness, dedication to justice, and devotion to representing t [...]
Opening Line The dead were her business I originally started JD Robb s In Death series because it was recommended to me by well everyone And Yes it is good In fact I ended up liking this 2nd instalment even then the first, however except for Roarke I don t totally love it either The writing is top notch and Robb spins an easy to read, dark mystery filled with lots of interesting suspects including Roarke again But I m just not a fan of the police procedurals and therefore large parts of this bo [...]
View review onUnder the Covers I WANT TO MARRY YOU, ROARKE I m going to use this review as an excuse to post Gandy Candy.Opening line The dead were her business From that first line, I was sucked in There is something about Robb s writing that just sucks me in completely I love the way she describes things I love the way the words flow and I love that there s this sense of detachment or coldness in the overall tone of her writing It makes the mystery of the story that much intriguing.Eve Dalla [...]
The murder of prominent DA Cicely Towers in the wet darkness of a cold night started Lieutenant Eve Dallas on a case involving high profile women and brutal murder Her immediate appointment as primary by her commander kept the pressure on Eve s assistance by fellow officer Feeney a boon But there was another murder too soon and before they had any suspects Could Eve crack this high profile case before women were murdered Was she in danger herself as another woman in the limelight Glory in Death [...]
I intended to write a full review of this but there s not that much which needs to be said A lot of what I mentioned in my review of Naked in Death also applies to the second novel Excellent psychological murder mystery with a small romance story that just complements the novel as a whole and doesn t swamp it Interesting characters, easy to read and even a dose of smut to go with it Do you really want anything else
This series is every bit as good second time around as it was the first and this particular book is one of the best ones Eve and Rourke are at the beginning of their relationship and Eve is fighting it every inch of the way Tissues are a required accompaniment to chapter nine Peabody appears for the first time Roarke does his very macho thing to protect his woman All good in the land of In Death Love it
4.5 starsHe could do that to her, and for her, she realized He could open little pockets of peace.The second book in the In Death series didn t disappoint If the first one blew me away with its originality and characters Roarke, anyone , this second was a solid sequel The only reason I gave it one star less was because of the case itself, which I found less interesting, especially because of Roarke s low involvement in it Or, properly, at first his involvement mirrored a lot the role he d had d [...]
I m cheating my husband with ROARKE Yeah yeah, I m in too much trouble D God dammit Roarke Why are you so cute
And the LOVE continues Glory in Death was fantastic I even enjoyed it just a little bit which was such a great feeling It was a combination of things that made it a little better The chemistry between Eve and Roark is explosive I savored every single moment they were together I love that he calls her darling The side characters Feeney, Mavis, Commander Whitney and Summerset continue to shine Summerset is a bit of a mystery to me though I m looking forward his back story J.D Robb continues to wr [...]
Another Great read This one was even better than the first one I have to say, Great, Great work J D Robb I Loved it The characters are great but the crime and the way it turns out at the end was really fascinating Eve was great, as usual Tough and smart Roarke well, Roarke was Roarke.They are moving too fast, but let s see We re standing here, beat to shit, walking away from a crime scene where either or bothof us could have bought it, and you re asking me to marry you Perfect timing Other Chara [...]
Science Fiction for people who don t like Science Fiction Glory in Death is the second book in J.D Robb s wildly popular, futuristic, In Death series, and just like the first book, it s an exciting, gritty, thrilling read The Story Two prominent women and a third accidental have been found with their throats slashed, and as primary on the case, Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas has her hands full With the list of suspects rising along with the death count, Eve is mentally and emotionally pushed to he [...]
I m so happy I have found another series this good I must admit I wasn t expecting to like it this much What makes me the most happy person on Earth is that I heard every book in this series is as good as this first 2 and as there are 30 of them still to read I will be extremely entertained for quite a while.For what I have read and been told, every book in this series solves a different crime while Eve s and Roarke s relationship develops I must say that this too have become one of my all time [...]

As always it was a great book I even enjoyed that Roarke broke down Eve s walls, well at least one of them They make such a great pair and the ending was also a great surprise as always Well written and great mystery.
The dead were her business She lived with them, worked with them, studied them She dreamed of them And because that didn t seem to be enough, in some deep, secret chamber of her heart, she mourned for them Glory in Death takes place a few months after the previous book Murder never stops and Lieutenant Eve Dallas finds herself once again in a high profile case when a well known woman is murdered And when another successful and famous woman is murdered, Eve works quickly to find connections and a [...]
I know this is first and foremost a murder mystery series but I can t stop thinking about Roarke Let me get those pesky details out of the way and then commence the gushing, mnkay So the opening scene is once again Eve being called to the scene of a grisly murder The chick s throat is slashed.blah blahspect must hate womenblahEve is super duper intuitiveblah, blah blah blahlots of rich society peopleblahporters, policemen and detectives There Necessary info out of the way On to the REAL storyROA [...]
Suspense 4.5 stars Romance 2.5 starsStill can t believe this book was written 22 years ago The author and her heroine have brilliant mind Brilliant As to the romance I still didn t like Roarke Their conflict, above all his behaviour, at the beginning was childish And I found some of h s actions regarding the H a bit weak But I don t give up hope to like him better.And if not, I ll still enjoy the hell out of crime suspense
Murder no longer shocked, but it continued to repel.Eve is direct, straight forward.Cars with auto pilot Yesss Take that road rageOn Roarke Fallen angel Yes he is.Eve finds it difficult to turn to Roarke, to open up to him He s trying to understand but his patience wears thin Eve struggles with her emotions, expressing herself Her detatchment gives her distance and a logical mind It s sort of effortless, not moving through the murky waters of emotion There s that fang toothed, dickless weasel Su [...]
THAT ending No time to waste, next book NOW
Zaten 5 den a a puan veremem Roarke varken Allah m ROARKE R.O.A.R.K.E Sen ne muhte em bir adams n yaaaa Eve pa ozu da ba ta beni delirtse de sonunda adam oldu D Senin k ymetini bilmeyenler utans n Roarke cum Bu arada kurgu g zeldi zaten g rd n z gibi ona hi de inmiyorum bile.Son olarak Roarke a bir ark arma an etmek istiyorum Ad n da lara yazd m yarimBu ulu camlara kazd m.
I am seriously loving this series More murder, mystery and Roarke grins But this should be taken in little doses Need to read something in between
ltimamente no estaba dando 5 estrellas a ning n libro que ca a en mis manos y me alegro mucho de que haya sido precisamente este libro el que me haya hecho volver a esa poca en la que un libro de este g nero me enganchaba tanto.Divina ante la muerte es, para mi gusto personal, much simo mejor que el primero y un enganche total a una serie, que, si no me convenc a por la cantidad de libros que tiene y porque todos son del mismo personaje, ahora solo espero tener tiempo de poder leer todos bastant [...]
5 Perfect Timing Stars Fuck him Feeney made a sound like a man who d been pinched Christ Jesus, Dallas, you re in St Pat s If God s going to make little weasels like him, she s going to have to listen to complaints And this is why I love Eve Dallas so much She heart a stone heart that tells you exactly how it is There is bubble wrapped words when it comes to Eve BUT said heart is starting to warm and it has all to do with the sexy Roarke, which by the way, HE BELONGS TO ME and I don t share With [...]
While the story is initially what grabs you when you choose a book, isn t it the characters that keep you reading In this series, they certainly are.The second book shows how the relationship between Eve and Roake evolves Eve is reluctant and scared of commitment which makes Roarke furious at most times So you know what he does Give her a taste of her own medicine Yes, he s a vicious little smartass but we love him for that When things stop working or seem difficult, really all you need to do is [...]
Re read this one, this time in French edition, started on May 27 I got the book cheap on fr.It will take forever to finish this one methinks since not on the kindle and my French vocabulary still mis rable eh Oh, no Roarke here, the French change his name to Connors, gosh How that happened Boo This series is delicious Yup, I want of Eve and Roarke
Overall Glory in Death is a good mystery suspense story but if you re looking for an equal balance of romance, seeing as it s listed as romantic suspense , you won t get that here The story is relatively quick paced and you have a good futuristic feel, but I kept wanting to read about the growing intimacy between Roarke and Eve The book is borderline fiction than romance I thought because Robb tends to gloss over the steam a little too often and focus on the rest of the story than the couple [...]
