Something missing …

I love my J D Robb books and buy them immediately on release.  But I feel that lately they need something dramatic to liven them up.  Like Eve getting pregnant or one of the main characters being killed or kidnapped. It needs something to break the normalcy that is setting in.

That is not to say that the crime plots are not excellent, because they are, but the interpersonal relationships are the real bread and butter to these stories.  It is true that she bought in a new character, a  forensic anthropologist in  Concealed in Death, it wasn’t enough. 

When reading them it is like returning to a world that I have come to love and know.  I can dream of my own endings and twists, which hasn’t happened since my love of The Hardy Boys when I was younger.  In those I was their sister and got into the same things they did.

I loved these books from the start  and that grew with how much I understand and “know” the back story that Eve has.  Her life and how she lives it could be mine.  I love her humour, she is real to me and from that place so become the others.

With over 40 books in the … in death series I just think it needs a shake up, one that has been missing lately.  but I will still buy them and I always will, I just want more.  This may be greedy but I guess I have come to love the series so much that I don’t want it going stale with over written syndrome or becoming too predictable.



I was 46 years old when I begun this blog, female and married with a house full of cats (7). My past is littered with the impact of events that happened when I was a teen. Two loves of my life have been nursing and studying. I just completed my Master of Arts: Media Studies endorsement. My blog will be about the things I think about, that might be better served being written rather than squirreled away in my mind festering. It is the meanderings of my mind as I seek to define myself and my world.
