#book33 and it was so fucking good!!! I'm moving into the next one. ;)

J.D.Robb, you're bloody amazing. Please, please keep writing this series. I don't even care if there are 200 books! I'd still gladly read them all... <3

I just love Eve & Roarke soooooo much! I'll never get tired of this series. :)

“Oh, so very much.”

I rarely buy "real books" since I got my kindle/iPad. Granted, if there is a favourite, I will try my best to purchase it. Especially a hardcover version. I found New York to Dallas in a second hand store this summer and paid over my $6 for it. I nearly cried when I left behind about 20 other hardcover JD ROBB books but I had no room in my luggage for any more. (If you happen to be visiting Bandon, OR, check out Kimberly's Book Nook. It is a treasure trove of books.)

New York to Dallas stands out in this great series as being just a bit different and not only for its title. Eve has struggled with her demons many times before but in this book she takes them on in a whole new way and comes very close to the edge on several occasions. And each time she is pulled back by Roarke - of course!

There is a lot of heavy drama and a definite requirement for a box of tissues somewhere handy. Roarke and Eve discuss their relationship many times and things get very emotion
Book #33 and still going strong!! I LOVED this one!

First of all, I should know better than to start an Eve and Roarke book when I have work in RL to do!! Nothing ends up existing when I become captivated by one of JD Robb's masterpieces. This installment ended being one of the very best of the series. I was kind of worried about this one as I knew that Eve would probably be going to Dallas to solve a case instead of her home town of New York. The thing is...for Eve; Dallas has memories for Eve.

This was one of the most emotional books of the series. Eve has to go back to Dallas - the place where she was found as a broken, beaten child - to confront a serial killer who has a vendetta against her. It was a tough road for her, but there were also plenty of diversions to keep the story from being too depression-inducing.

The best of the diversionary tactics was Eve's complete annoyance with the "Southern Hospitality" that is so common in Texas.

Suspense 4.9 stars / Romance 5 stars

One of the most intense books in this series. A villain – trashiest trash – a pedophile.
Manhunt. Dark. Inhuman. Brilliant Eve’s mind, her strong spirit, her inner fight.
Terrific good written, but slightly anticlimactic and abrupt ending.

Romance. Despite I wasn’t Roarke’s biggest fan at the beginning of this series, this man won me over.
Love how they love each other. The strongest fictional couple ever.

Eve Dallas – incredible Woman!!!

Banny Kirsten Marie Reviews
This was most defiantly one of the best but gruesome detective books that i have ever read in my life! I loved the plot and the characters and at then end the story had me on my knees begging for more. This book is number 33 in the In Death Series but i honestly did not care i have read about three books in the series but never have i read them in the order they should be in. Not that it madders because each book is just a diffrent case to be solved.

New York to Dallas is an open and shut case

I ALMOST gave this 5 stars, but the sheer coincidence of the character TWIST was enough for 4 1/2. Nonetheless this was a REALLY REALLY good book:
1) Creepy bad guy
2) Lots of character stakes
3) Overall plot forward-pushing.

Thumbs up! It's so amazing that after 33 books you can still really CARE about how the characters interact with one another, whether they succeed or not. THis one had a TON of tension, the most in quite a while in the series. Yes, we've seen a lot of this past trauma touched on
This one was brutal and had me crying till the very end, what this evil son of a b**ch did to those young girls was heartbreaking, living through Eve's memories of her past was heartbreaking, Roarke's reaction to her suffering was heartbreaking but as always their love shone a little light into the darkness.
Beware rape of children is heavily prevalent here



This was one of the most intense and heartbreaking books of this

I'm still mulling over my thoughts about this book. I enjoyed it, as I often enjoy these books, but one thought that I can't shake, now that I'm done, is the idea that this series is going to have to draw to a conclusion now. A lot of the large, overarching story threads that have been interwoven are being given answers, and I feel that, as far as the interpersonal/relationship conflicts go, not just with Eve and Roarke, but the secondary characters as well, that these have all been pretty well ...more

I can't say enough good about this book on so many levels. J.D. Robb really outdid herself - 2 books in a row!

The first time I read this book, I actually thought - Okay, this could very well be the end of the series because it wraps everything up quite nicely. But then I thought, No, there will always be serial killers, stuff that blows up, devious minds, and twisted stories!

This is right up there in my all time favourites of this series - love, love, love this book. Meeting Eve's mother, as hor
I am not going to go into the story but just say a few things about the series, it has become really predictable not that, that is bad but I would like to see Eve evolve.

Things there in all books:
Eve getting so into a case, that she doesn't eat, sleep and acts like a boor and has dreams about her past mixed up with the victims, as usual Roarke is there, feeding her and forcing her to look after herself, even siccing Mira on her when needed. We have the customary fight for no reason when Even tri
This one a heavy one, five - gut wrenching - stars!

We knew the tragedy of Eve's childhood and now she have to face it again head on.
Did you see Roarke reactions to everything what happened to Eve?
Well after all her miserable childhood life, Eve totally deserved Roarke!!

Simply the best in the series so far!

Note, this is a very emotional read, the audio version is better with this one, the meeting scene in Dallas when Eve lead it is absolutely awesome!:)

What's amazing in this series is the fact the even if the story is a very heartwrenching one, like here, there're cleverly inserted humorous moments that make it bearable!

Here Eve must confront her horrible past in the very city she's named for and where everything strated. But, Roarke is there for her now!

FANGIRLING ALERT *sorry not sorry*

One the BEST installments in this series. SERIOUSLY. My emotions is all over the damn place. I raged, I cried, I laughed and cried some more. I absolutely LOVE Roarke and Eve. One of the best couples I've ever read and I've read plenty.

Anyhoo, an old adversary of Eve is back wanting revenge. He is a sick f*ck. A predatory and violent pedophile, a narcissist with the ability to assume numerous personas. Eve has to go back to Dallas and confront her sickening pas

Overall this was an enjoyable read, and whilst I’m very much aware of certain tropes that the author uses in this series, the story and characters remain engaging.

In this one Eve has to again face a particularly sadistic and disturbed killer/paedophile from her early days as a cop, he has escaped from prison and is set on getting revenge on the woman who stopped him – Detective Eve Dallas. And he is more than willing to use and hurt the innocent to reach his goal. Unexpectedly an

That was brutal! The first serial killer Eve ever caught breaks out of prison with revenge on his mind. He’s been researching Eve and will hurt her more than anyone ever has... he will drag her back to Dallas.
New York to Dallas
4.5 Stars

A killer from Eve's days as a rookie escapes from prison and challenges her to a game of Cat and Mouse in the city that haunts her nightmares - Dallas, Texas.

Another excellent addition to the series as Eve comes face to face with the most traumatic experiences of her childhood, and is pushed to the limits of her physical and mental endurance.

Balancing out her pursuit of one of the more depraved and malicious villains in the books thus far, are moments of love and sup

Talk about jumping into the deep end of the pool! This was my first Eve Dallas book and I opted for the audiobook. (I know, I know. It was a crazy place to start a series) I don't know if it was the ardent delivery of the narrator that alienated me from Lieutenant Dallas - I do love a good strong female lead - but I felt like maybe she was a bit too strong. Untouchable. Unrelatable. And ultimately I think I ended up feeling sorry for her husband and her therapist/profiler Dr. Mira - that they we ...more
This was one of my favorite books of the In Death series. Why? It's the culmination of everything Eve and Roarke have done in their relationship up to this point. With tender moments, agonizing soul searching (well as much as Eve and Roarke can agonize), and a vulnerability that express why and how these two love each other; combined with the crime procedural we've come to expect in an In Death book; J.D. Robb masterfully gives us the exact right blend of both the inner workings of a loving comm ...more
Oh, my, gosh! I literally could not put this book down! It was amazing! It kept me on the edge of my seat and had me running the spectrum of emotions! I loved that we got so much resolution in this book, even though that resolution led to more issues for Eve herself. I loved how far this book pushed Eve out of her comfort zone, and showed the dichotomy between her homicide teams and other teams in the Police fraternity. The bonds of Eve's relationship with Roarke were also tested here, and I bel ...more

Major CW for child abuse/sexual assault on this one. This was a well executed cat and mouse detective story, and it had a lot of big milestones in developing Eve's backstory and how she & Roarke deal with that. Alas, this was just not very fun to read and didn't align with my tastes. Ultimately, a book I admire for its function in the series, but didn't especially enjoy ...more

(FIRST READ Book #33) Because all the books contain three genres successfully mashed into a single story. Every book, from Naked in Death to the very latest, is a police procedural, and a pretty cozy one at that. A crime is committed, usually a murder. Eve Dallas, a homicide cop, and her team eventually solve the crime. Eve uses the policies and procedures that cops use. She investigates the crime. She follows the law. She interviews witnesses. Forensic evidence is collected and examined. This s ...more
