Book Review: Immortal in Death

Immortal in Death

Immortal in Death by J.D. Robb

Category: Crime Fiction

Challenges: Flashback Challenge and Thriller and Suspense Reading Challenge 2010

Synopsis: Lieutenant Eve Dallas best friend gets accused of murder and it is up to Eve to find the real killer. While planning a wedding. 

My Thoughts: I love the In Death series but part of me had forgotten how laugh out loud funny some of the earlier books are. This one had me giggling several times. The funnies lines are often the kind of throw away lines between characters and this contributes to the feeling of the characters are real. The realism of the characters is something I really appreciate. Although things have happened to Eve and Roarke that have never happened to me I can relate to their problems in blending lives and wanting to keep your life as it was. I can also relate to the dry sarcastic wit that Eve employs as this is something that we use in my family quite a bit.

This book also discusses what family is and that we make our own family. This is something that I personally find fascinating and important. I have a fantastic family but at the same time I also have a fantastic family that isn’t my family by birth but by love. I would like this type of discussion to be more prevalent in today’s world.

Overall this is a great book.

I have never read JD Robb, but for some reason I never considered these books to be funny. I'm glad they are! I'll look into them now.

And I completely agree with you on family :-)
