I am rationing my JD Robb, Eve Dallas and Roarke. I love these stories and Nora Roberts always writes a good novel, but I stopped reading them for a while as I found the JD Robb series getting a little ‘samey’.
Not so here.
This is a different ‘take’ on a multiple murder. And to my delight we have some wicked references to TV Series – we have a dog called Bones, owned by a forensic psychologist, who wears sky high designer heels, and flashy duds to crime scenes. All a nod to Rizzoli and Isles and of course Bones and Body of Proof (Jordan may also feature in this character sketch too).
The murders happened 15 years ago and so we have Cold Case also referenced, whereby we have to trace everyone concerned back in the time that the deaths occurred.
I also thought that Nora Roberts had really got into her stride and the book read well with good characterisations, and enough storylines of who and what and why to keep the interest.
Now I am pleased to have bought the rest of the series to date and pre-ordered the next – but am keeping them in a ‘mustn’t binge’ reading pile!
