Sort of a slow week for reading as I’ve been dealing with household stuff and writing. But I did finish Kindred in Death, which is my favorite of the last say, five or so Eve books. Roberts/Robb does a great job in this one with the balance of story and romance – great growth for the people we’ve grown to love over the series. A wedding coming up, some lovely scenes with Mira and Peabody, Eve and Roarke seem to be on their stride again after Roarke’s total jerk behavior some books ago.
Really when I read any Nora Roberts book I’m reminded of the power of good storytelling. Eve is such an interesting character and Roberts has given her life. Roarke as well. With these characters and this series, the growth has been incremental and subtle in all the right ways.
I’ve got piles of books in my TBR pile and I just ordered a Nook reader to continue my addiction!
Okay so because it is Friday and we do talk books today – I’ve got an ARC of COMING UNDONE – want it? Just reply to this post with a book you’ve recently loved and why. I won’t count any entries that just say “I want the book” or whatever (been getting a lot of that lately). It’s fun and easy! I’ll choose a winner by noon pacific tomorrow 11/14 and yep, international entries are definitely ok!
