Creation in Death by JDRobb
Nora Roberts' Website
4 1/2 stars
Okay, so I'm not sure what genres these series category to. But I know there are mixed of all three. So I just put them all. Of course, I wasn't sure if contemporary romance should be there. But these books do have romance (Eve and Roarke) in them. It took me awhile to read this book and review it. I'm slowly reading books these days. But are trying to pick up my reading habits to a speed this time :)
Nine year earlier a man whom the media have called him "The Groom", has took the lives of four women. He would artfully arrange the body of brunette woman and spread their arm, palms up and than marked them by signs of prolonged and even torture them. And there always a silver rings placed in their third finger of their left hand. Carving their torso is what took the times for them to to die. The media was on edge because of the frighten killing spree. Nine years ago, NYPSD Lieutenant Eve and her partner Feeny was unable to stop him before he suddenly disappear, never to be seen again......
Now he have came back and this time his most recent victims turn out to be employed of Roarke, whose happen to be Eve's billionaire husband. The victims was washed from producted that was owned by Roarke and was laid on a sheet that the company manufactures. When Eve found that "The Groom" has made it personal, she bring Roarke in to help and work with her at the Central. Because Eve is familiar with his method of killing, she hoped her team would be able to find the "The Groom" and stop him this time from killing more women or she might be the next killer's target. Time is running out and it is a challenge for Eve to get him this time around and redeem herself.
Mean while, Roarke is discovering for the first time what it like working at the Central. Normally when Eve asked for him for help, he does all the work in his office at home. This time he left his comfort zone and end up in Central.
JDRobb aks Nora Roberts, has kept up with a very creative story that keep you entertained and wanting more. She kept the story moving in fast pace with urgency of the characters tension to solve and catch the killer. A wonderful and charming characters that grow on you as you think of them as your own family. And you get a glimpse of another days, behind Eve and Roarke marriage life too. A very good book read. I can't wait to read the next In Death installment!
