This book has several pluses. Only one dead person and that person deserves it. No blood and gore and random violence. We learn more about Eve's early life, this time about her life in a foster home. It also brings out some of the uglier side of Eve when she and Roarke have a fight. And some of her better side as she really thinks about the people she has come to love and depend on and picks out gifts that they will love. There are many great scenes. Dennis Mira putting his arm around Eve and Eve uncharacteristically breaking into tears. Dr. Mira talking about some of the quarrels between Dennis and herself. Peabody and McNab and their argument. Mavis holding up a baby jumpsuit in flaming red that Leonardo has made - on the vid screen of the phone. Somerset and Eve and their Christmas Day moratorium on insults which has Eve biting her tongue more than once. Feeney bribing his grandson to spill gravy on his suit so he can enjoy Christmas dinner in comfort. As usual there is much left to the reader's imagination at the end of the book. I would have liked to have found out how Bobby copes and particularly would have liked to discover what happened to the boy Trudy framed, the one who gave Eve her first good moment and her first laugh by letting her ride his airboard. Those are the kinds of visuals that make the books so real, not to mention the comments about socks that never fit, people who shop like crazy, people who match every damn thing on their persons, and the marriage rule book, especially where the number of gifts given is concerned. Eve is a constant delight.
