My Review

Santa is on the warpath in this holiday who-done-it by New York Times bestselling author J.D. Robb.

Lieutenant Eve Dallas faces one of her toughest assignments as a sadistic killer haunts the city dressed as Santa Claus. His calling card: expensive tokens depicting the Twelve Days of Christmas.

Eve has to track a monster terrorizing the patrons of a dating service while trying to block the memories of her own childhood. Thankfully, she has the support of her incredibly talented and sexy husband, Roarke.

This story deals with some tough issues, but adds to the depth of Eve’s character and her relationships on the police force. She often comes across as brash, but underneath, in a place she usually only lets Roarke see, she’s still the abused, lonely little girl who killed her father to survive.

I give Holiday in Death 5 lovely kisses- A must read!

Are you a fan of the In Death series? Do you like Eve?

    • She’s an amazing writing, Robbie. Highly recommend her books.
      By the way, this post was done with the new editor. I like the drop caps option, but won’t use the caption under a picture again. Still learning 🙂

  3. I’m kind of a sucker for serial killer stories. Throw in a Christmas hook? Sounds like a winner. (Then again, most Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb titles are.)

  6. Great review, Jacquie! I have loved this series since book one. My girlfriend and I always fight over who gets Roarke!

  7. Yes, I enjoy Nora Roberts books as J.D. Robb. Not as saccharine as her romance books, and Eve and Roarke are such a good pair.

    • I’m the same. I’ve tried a few of her Nora Roberts books (earlier works) and while I enjoyed them, they don’t compare to the police procedural series.
      Thanks for stopping by 🙂
