I haven't even read the 49th book (Expected publication: September 3rd 2019) but still I'm already so excited for the 50th book. I just love this series sooooo freaking much. LOL yeah, I'm obsessed with this series because Roarke & Eve are the BEST couple that I've ever read... :)

As the 50th book in this series, I expected just a tad more than I got. Although it was a thoroughly enjoyable read, It was relatively slow going with much of the book taken up by the first murder and not enough time is given to the next poisoning.

The evil character's really shone in this book, and I would have liked to have seen Eve and Delia spend more time on them.

I felt that this novel was more of a character-driven read than an action-driven one, but that was okay as I was able to learn a l

I received this book as an ARC from St. Martin's Press in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

I am very familiar with the Eve Dallas series as well as the work of J.D. Robb. and this one was mid-twisting whodunit entertainment that will leave you breathless and when you get it back, you'll be screaming for more. Now with the ,mysterious death of Dr. Abner from a golden egg trinket that was poisoned with gas, it's up to Eve to figure

The fiftieth book in a series? Well done for going the distance, Ms Robb!

Is this book a worthy addition to the In Death series? Yes. Is it the best in the series to date? Not by my opinion. It was rather obvious where the connection between the murders occurred. And it took me a course of five nights to finish this book as opposed to the usual, voracious read of two nights. Golden in Death was rather a standard thriller mystery that could have been penned by any modern thriller writer with spots

Received an ARC courtesy of the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

This is the 5oth book in the series not including the novellas in anthologies. The mystery was interesting, and I always enjoy spending time in Eve and Roarke's world. However, (view spoiler)

Can you believe that Golden in Death is the 50th book in JD Robb's In Death series? I see many readers still just as excited for the next book as they were when the book numbers were in single digits. I too look forward to spending time in the futuristic setting where Eve Dallas lives and works. As a character, Dallas has certainly grown, her relationship with Roarke, her friends( yes, Eve has good friends), and her team has become more complex as you would imagine over time ( though not as much ...more

It's hard to believe this is book 50 in the In Death series. It's been awhile since I've read any of the In Death books but I had no trouble catching up. Eve must investigate the murder of a beloved doctor who seems to have no enemies. If you're new to the series just be aware that it's set in the future and life is a little different on planet Earth. I received a copy of this ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Robb's 50th In Death title involves Dallas and Peabody investigating the murders of people who received a package in the mail containing a toxic substance. This mystery is more complex than some of the recent entries in the series, with a wider pool of suspects. Fans will also enjoy the character-interactions between Dallas, Roarke and their crew.
