Dark in Death
I tend to agree with everyone. I enjoyed reading it but I could put it down and then come back to it. I miss the earlier books with suspense and lots of action.
I will say this, from what I gathered reading the plot on Leverage in Death, it actually looks pretty interesting. I’ll post it on that topic so you can see it.
The section where Eve was working out the killer’s impetus was convoluted at best.
That was actually the problem I had with it, to the point where I ended up skipping a good chunk of it, because when you get right down to it, it’s an example of just grabbing the same plot elements from Obsession.
Her new book was mentioned, can’t wait to see how that turns out.
I just hope it talks about The Red Horse cult and not about what happened in Delusion, and I’d rather them just make a documentary and not another movie, I think Eve and Roarke found that experience just awkward.
One thing I think Eve should’ve done for Valentine’s Day, is use Roarke’s boys to make a custom-made cologne for Roarke as a gift. Probably would’ve made a much different and sweeter scene in this book.
I enjoyed parts of this book. I will have to do a reread before I can make further claims. I will say, the section where Eve was working out the killer’s impetus was convoluted at best. I had a difficult time slogging through it. But, after I passed that, I enjoyed the book. I really enjoyed Eve and Peabody in this one. The sewing angle was different. I (always) love Feeney. Eve’s comment about his hair was hilarious. His reaction to Nadine’s boyfriend was also funny. I hope this relationship works out for Nadine. Her new book was mentioned, can’t wait to see how that turns out. I hope we get an ID book out of that. I would love if Eve and Roarke went to the Oscars. It would be fun to read about any outfits Leonardo designed for her. I thought I was going to escape Mavis, but she squeezed in. At least that was minimal. One other thing, Roarke was more than a little predictable with his supportive-husband comments. We’ve had to read the (almost) same conversation in every book. I did enjoy their escapades in the Summerset-free house. Almost like kids misbehaving when the parents are gone.
I’m going to let it sit a day or two and read it again. Then I can see if my feelings are the same.
Sadly, I’m out of town and don’t have time to get involved in a book I don’t want to put down. So I told DH he could read it first. Can’t wait to read it this weekend!
