We'll begin reading Immortal in Death, In Death #3, March 1. This will become a Spoiler Zone on March 8.

Plot Summary/Synopsis:
She was one of the most sought after women in the world. A top model who would stop at nothing to get what she wanted - even another woman's man. And now she was dead, the victim of a brutal murder. Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas put her life on the line to take the case when the suspicion fell on her best friend, the other woman in the fatal love triangle. Beneath the facade of glamour, Eve found that the world of high fashion thrived on an all-consuming obsession for youth and fame. One that led from the runway to the dark underworld of New York City where the drugs could be found to fulfill any desire - for a price...

Timeline: Approximate start date of June 27 - July 11, 2058

message 7: by Tanvi (new)

Tanvi (trwriteratwork) | 70 comments Yes! This one is the last second-time read for me and then come April, I'll be reading the rest of the series for the first time! So ready for March!

I'm so excited for all the new readers (as well as my co-"old"-readers). For me, this is a milestone book. I've read it many, many times and yet, can't wait to read it again.

If everyone continues to find themselves finished reading & ready to discuss these books earlier than the 10th, we can move open discussions up to the 8th. For myself, I have committed to making our In Death book my first read of every month so I'm usually ready within the first week. Or we can continue with the 10th - I want everyone to have time to read it...no problem either way. Let's see how March goes. :)

message 11: by Sharon (new)

Sharon Kallenberger Marzola | 2417 comments I'm ready to start reading this one. I have questions that I'm gathering with each book. I'll wait until next week to start so I don't have the urge to ask spoilers before it is time.

I will join in and soon as I can .

Can.Not.Wait. LOL! Even after reading it several times, I get goosebumps thinking about this one. Join in as soon as you can. This will become a Spoiler Zone on the 10th. Lots to talk about with Immortal!


message 20: by Michelle (new)

Michelle | 2332 comments I'll start later. Like Sharon I hate waiting to ask my questions. And btw I think moving spoiler zone to the 8 might help. But no one else said something so I leave it in your hands Sandra. Either way I ready.

I agree - it works for me because I'm reading the In Death br book first each month. I'm not sure about others.

I'm waiting for the book from my library. So I can't read it just yet. Waiting until the 10th or the 8th would be good before this thread becomes a spoiler zone.
This is my first time reading it and I would definitely love to participate in the discussions.

Phrynne | 308 comments Starting now! It's ten o clock Tuesday morning here in Aussie:)

Let's go with the 8th as our open discussion date. These are fast reads and like everyone else, I hate holding my questions/discussions until later. So -

I laughed out loud at that scene!


message 30: by Phrynne (new)

Phrynne | 308 comments I finished it too. I had forgotten how dramatic this one is for Eve personally. It can be very hard to read when you have tears in your eyes! The words go all blurry:)

I miss reading In Death for the first time. But at the same time, I love seeing others people's response to the characters and the story in their first reading!

I wasn't a fan of Casto either. Especially when (view spoiler).

Oh me too!! It's so great to reread, but I do miss the first time and seeing the development with fresh eyes. It's so nice to be able to discuss in this group and see others with their fresh perspective with no knowledge of where everything goes already, as well as reread and catching more things in the 2nd or more times through! And I will get to this for a reread and join in, probably middle of the month.
