“She needed, he knew, the human touch. His touch. It humbled him that she found strength there. That what they found in each other steadied them both. Soft here, and tender, to reaffirm who they were, what they’d beaten back. And would always beat back together.”...more
How the feck does she do it? After 37 books, I still can’t imagine ever getting4.5 stars - Futuristic/Romantic Suspense/Crime/Science Fiction/Thriller
How the feck does she do it? After 37 books, I still can’t imagine ever getting enough of this prolific, phenomenal series, particularly the swoon-worthy romance between Roarke and Eve and all the fabulous characters.
This one made me tear up a few times: the medal ceremony, Sinead’s heartfelt pride and appreciation toward Eve and Roarke, and especially Nixie’s poignant gratitude to Eve.
“And then Roarke came to my door, and that gave me what I needed after all those years. I thank God for that, and him. But I’m telling you, and hope you already know, what you do, beyond the law of it, is needed.” “Sinead.” Roarke stepped up, pressed a handkerchief in her hand. “Ah well.” Sighing now, she dabbed at tears. “The world can be so dark. It’s foolish to deny it, and the Irish know the dark better than some in any case. It reminds us to hold on to the light, every minute we can, and to prize it. You’re a light to me.” She kissed Roarke’s cheeks. “Don’t ever forget it.”
Survivor In Death remains one of my absolute favorite books in the series, and I sobbed buckets reading that book. So it’s no surprise that I cried hard when sweet, brave Nixie from Survivor In Death appeared in this and thanked Eve.
“The person I’m most thankful for this Thanksgiving is Lieutenant Eve Dallas. She kept me safe when I was scared and I was sad. She took me to her house with Roarke and Summerset and Galahad so nobody could hurt me, not even the bad people who killed my family and my friend. She told me the truth. She promised me she would find the bad people and make sure they were punished. And Roarke said she would never stop until she did that. He told me the truth too. She helped me find Richard and Elizabeth and Kevin. They’re not my mother, my father, and my brother. But they’re my family now, and I know it’s okay to love them. It doesn’t mean I don’t love my mom and dad and my brother. Dallas didn’t treat me like a baby. She told me I was a survivor, and that’s important. She worked hard, and she even got hurt, but she found the bad people, and she made sure they got punished. She told me the truth. She kept her promise. So she is the person I’m most thankful for this Thanksgiving. Nixie Swisher.”
Oh yeah, and Eve, Peabody, and the gang had a total sicko to catch this time around. So another great read in this amazing series!...more
