Rapture in Death (In Death #4)
They died with smiles on their faces. Three apparent suicides: a brilliant engineer, an infamous lawyer, and a controversial politician. Three strangers with nothing in common - and no obvious reasons for killing themselves. Police lieutenant Eve Dallas found the deaths suspicious. And her instincts paid off when autopsies revealed small burns on t...more
I was afraid that the romance of the series would slow down now that Eve and Roarke are permanent, but that was sooooooo not the case!!!! If anything, there was an extra dynamic between them that was almost missing before. I suppose it mirrors real life in a way. Marriage is only the beginning of a crazy ass ride. There are higher highs and lower lows than you even knew existed.
“I'm sorry. It's Hard for me. I do love you," she said quietly. "Sometimes it sc...more
Starting off with a sexy pic of Roarke again...because I can.
RAPTURE IN DEATH is by far my favourite of the entire series and that’s quite a statement since I loved all the books leading up to this one. There was just something about this book that lured me in from the get-go. In this one, Eve Dallas is happy for a change. This is not to say that she was morbid and depressing in the previous books, but there’s this spark within her that I noticed right away. She’s a w...more
Eve keeps getting questioned about her honeymoon; Mavis is recording a studio album; Roarke is handing away orgasms like nobody’s business and four people with nothing in common are DEAD.
The mystery is the most predictable mystery to end all predictable mysteries since that Cold Case episode where the Butler did it.
Roarke is the most fictional romantic leading man ever written, and I know you guys love him for that but I just can't get over it.
Eve rocks as a character, but even she couldn't sav...more
Roarke and Eve’s honeymoon is cut short by the “self-termination” of one of Roarke’s employees. Mavis catches a break in show business. Odd suicides nudge at Eve, leaving her the only one to believe that there is indeed a connection.
Roarke adores Mavis. She is Eve’s best friend, a loved one to cherish. Hosting parties, exploring investment possibilities, Roarke really will keep you smiling in this book.
Mood altering music and virtual games. Roarke and Eve find themselves in a more than usual exp...more
I get the whole subliminal mood/mind control mumbo jumbo. Heck, I even get the machines used to control the mind but this book was just too...ugh. Eve was a disappointment as I expected better from her, or maybe that's just because I've read more than my share of In Death series books (ahead of this one).
I expected her t...more
I feel like I’m repeating the same thing after I read each new book in this series: This was my favorite so far. I loved Rapture In Death. I love Eve. I love Roarke. I even love Mavis and Peabody and all the secondary characters. But mostly, I love Roarke (sorry, it warrants repeating). Again, I chose to listen to the audio version of the book—Karen Erikson is perfect reading this series. She does a fantastic job with her inflection, accents, and overall is just amazing at drawing me into the st...more
The biggest problem with me was the “lack of romance” between Eve and Roarke. What there was of it seemed lackluster compared to the previous books. Sure, they’re a married couple now, but that doesn’t mean romance is dead, now, does it?
The second problem was the predic...more
After a rather horrendous period in RL which ended in me finishing this audiobook in the A&E dept of my local hospital last night, I've come to the conclusion that JD Robb's In Death series are now my comfort reads.
I'm slowly, but steadily, making my way through the audiobook versions and am waiting for Concealed in Death to be released at Audible.com even though it's #38 and I'm only at #4.
THE STORY: A reviewer remarked on the formulaic nature...more
When I started the audio of this I heaved a great big sigh of relief and joy. Oh goodie, a narrator who adds to the telling of the story!! And gives the characters depth and personality! What a wonderful experience! I've been listening to a lot of audiobooks where the narrator has a nice voice, but does a completely flat reading and adds absolutely nothing to the telling of the story. That is not what you get with this one!
I love Eve and Roarke! It was great to see the depth of Eve's e...more
Hmm, this is how I'm going to rate In Death series. Personal plot and professional plot. There is the hotness btwn Eve & Roarke and then Eve as a cop.
I'm impressed with murder case. This crime was harder to figure out than the previous cases. OK, I had the wrong person pinned. Eve hitting walls after walls was frustrating, very convincing and reinterated what a dedicated cop she is.
On "personal" plot, I love all the characters involved in Eve's life. Let's not even go into how goo...more
I don’t know if it’s because of the format or by choice but, although Roberts has great ideas but she never fully explores them. Everything was wrapped a bit too easily and quickly because the author tried to keep the secret until the final pages. I’m hoping Roarke’s involunt...more
Anyway, another winner mystery. Eve and Rourke are just finishing their honeymoon and Even ends up investigating a series of suicides. Officer Peabody plays a bigger part which is awesome because she's cool. I'm still not a Mavis fan.
I'm getting really good at picking out the killer but not how or why.
5 Stars and 2 thumbs up! On to Ceremony in Death!

Rjork and Eve are enjoying a blissful escape on their off-planet honeymoon. Taking in all the sites and apparently all the different locations one can make love when just getting married. But like always, life just wouldn't be Eve's without the small interuption of death or murder. A minor set back of suicide mars the end of their...more
Jadi pengen banget kayak Eve. Mungkin kalo gw dinikahin Roarke, udah berasa mampir surga kali yak. Ni cowo emang super duper keren abis pokoknya.
Lalu kemunculan mantan Roarke, yang super bitchy, dan bikin pembaca aww, aww, aww (pengen nyekek maksudnya :)))
Rapture in Death melanjutkan event di Immortal in Death, dimana adegan terakhir adalah adegan pernikahan Eve dan Roarke yang sayangnya tidak dijabarkan secara lanjut. Saat bula...more
Rapture in Death is the fourth installment or J.D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts)’s futuristic In Death series that stars police detective Eve Dallas and her hunky man, Roarke. Oh yeah and did I mention serial killer after serial killer.
Rapture in Death starts out with Eve and Roarke finishing off their honeymoon off-planet in one of Roarke’s resorts that hasn’t opened to the public yet. While there, one of Roarke’s employees comes to them to report his roommate has...more

J.D Robb's In Death series is quickly making its way to my favorite series list. If anything, it keeps getting better!
This is really going to be just a quick, short review, cause I don't have much to say I haven't in former reviews of the series: It's still has the same wonderful characters, still has wonderful plots, still has the same wonderful writing.
Rapture in Death begins in Eve and Roarke's honeymoon.
If you haven't read the...more
They died with smiles on their faces. Three apparent suicides: a brilliant engineer, an infamous lawyer, and a controversial politician.

This one started while Eve & Roarke are still on honeymoon at a nice half built resort off planet, owned by Roarke, and of course Eve investigates a death that looks like self-termination, but just doesn't feel right.
When they get back to Earth and work, Eve gets Peabody assigned as her permanent aide and thus a great working relationship has begun.
Several more self-termin...more

Roarke: "What, die?"
Eve: "Leave me all this stuff."
Roarke: "Only you would be annoyed by that.”
He held her there until he was sure he could speak, then eased her back, looked into her eyes "You've chaged my life. Become my life." He touched his lips to hers, let the kiss deepen slowly, silkily. "I need you”
