For a novella this was really really good. Lots of depth and relationship developments in such a short story. Loved it 🙂
Seduction in Death by J.D. Robb
Narrator: Susan Ericksen
Series: In Death #13
Published by Brilliance Audio on May 1st 2008

LENGTH -- 11 hrs and 10 mins
Dante had been courting his victim in cyberspace for weeks before meeting her in person. A few sips of wine and a few hours later, she was dead. The murder weapon: a rare, usually undetectable date-rape drug with a street value of a quarter million dollars.
Detective Eve Dallas is playing and replaying the clues in her mind. The candlelight, the music, the rose petals strewn across the bed - a seduction meant for his benefit, not hers. He hadn't intended to kill her. But now that he has, he is left with only two choices: to either hole up in fear and guilt or start hunting again
I really enjoyed seeing the progress on McNab and Peabody relationship. Also some great scenes with Eve and Roarke. They’ve hit about 1 year of marriage and I love their relationship. He worries about her and cares for her so much!
This was a bit different in that we knew the killer’s game and identity long before Eve. At first I thought that would make the book less interesting, but it actually turned out to be an interesting twist.
The narration was good as usual, but the voice for Peabody seems different, which is a weird change for this late in the series. It through me off a bit.
Reunion in Death by J.D. Robb

At exactly 7:30 p.m., Walter Pettibone arrived home to over 100 friends and family shouting, "surprise!" It was his birthday. Although he had known about the planned event for weeks, the real surprise was yet to come. At 8:45 p.m., a woman with emerald eyes and red hair handed him a glass of champagne. One sip of birthday bubbly, and he was dead.
The woman's name is Julie Dockport. No one at the party knew who she was. But Detective Eve Dallas remembers her all too well. Eve was personally responsible for her incarceration nearly 10 years ago. And now, let out on good behavior, she still has nothing but bad intentions. It appears she wants to meet Dallas again - in a reunion neither will forget.
I think what I liked most about this one was Eve’s trip to Dallas. Not the memories obviously but I liked seeing that moment in her and Rourke’s relationship. Also super cool seeing Peabody handling a case solo and loved how excited McNabb was for her. Oh and Peabodys parents! Not sure who’s cooler, her mom or her dad. And the fight at the end was pretty great. When I finished this one I thought, “Gah, I wish Eve were real. I’d totally do everything I could to be her friend” not an easy task, because she’s so hard core!Berls is sharing Just a Few More In Death books... because there's a lot of them.
