Love the interaction between Eve & Feeney; He always tells it as it is... 👍 ❤️
When Eve questioned why Feeney didn't take Oberman to train, like he said he didn't because It just didn't seem like a right fit. Then he told her that when someone else came along a few years later he knew that was a good fit. From that day on he has been a surrogate father to Eve. Love how the work together even now that he run EDD. (Eve calls it the darkside.
Every time I would finish an In Death book I would turn to hubby and say "that's the best one", now that he is reading them he does the same thing. He just finished this one.
After reading so many "In Death" books, one gets the feeling that these characters are real people. Great writing!
I'm reading this right now. Feeney's instincts are spot on!
I just adore Feeney, bad-ass cop and everyone's Dad.
yesss you* know when You* know .. something wasn't right b4 .. * ..
I like to think this was because Feeney knew something was off with Oberman.
I adore Feeny and Eve's relationship and seeing how it's progressed throughout the series <3
Feeney made an awesome choice 👍
There were & always will be a good fit❤
I’m rereading it this very minute ! Just love Eve!
Wow!! the nerve of some people to do this. Ive seen a lot of comments on these pages. some i agree with, others i dont., i definately do not agree with this one!! Nora, i enjoy your books. Keep writing for those of us who thoroughly enjoy your books. The arrogant ones can find somewhere else to go. imo.
I love your stories!!!! I started at the beginning to listen to all the "in death" series! Thank you so much!!!
Some one is a little(lot) delusional to think just because they read a book makes them part owner and collaborator of said book. And this same someone must not know Nora well enough to know she would never stand for that thought process. Love your books Nora Roberts and thanks for all your hard work delivering to your readers great books.
Ms Roberts. If you see this or if Ms Laura passes it on, thank you!!!!
I can't know the struggle you go through writing, because you have a talent I lack. Yeah, I have stories in my head, but I cannot sit down and write them. You, however, are a wonderful writer and I truly appreciate every word you write. For someone like myself, who reads, to claim even the tiniest bit of ownership of your work on the height of hubris.
Please don't let such people get under your skin. They aren't worth your time. Know that you have touched millions with your writing and we love and appreciate everything you do. The world would be a dimmer place without you. At least mine would.
Thank you for going through the work to entertain us, and even teach us
Anyone who has issues with Nora or JD books, has their own issues. I have learned so much more from your stories than I have from other authors, on a lot of levels - even cooking, haha - just from how you weave people, situations & settings together. I am grateful for every hour spent as a writer at the keyboard, so you can share your stories.
As one of your characters summarized similarly (or likely more characters over time, now that I think about it): "I like your books."
If I didn't, I wouldn't read, re-read or own so many of them.
I have read all the Dallas books (my all tine favs) and many of your other books. Never once have I felt entitled to think I had any bearing on their completion. I sur in absolute awe of the people who write my favorite pastime. I struggle to but words together, can not 8magibe writing an entire book. It has to be exhausting. I am SO thankful for those who do write.
I. AM. FLOORED! the gall of some people! I, for one, love your work and am grateful every time a new book comes out. I appreciate every word on the page (or the sound of each from the audiobooks :)). My appreciation comes directly from the fact that you, and all other authors that I enjoy, are creative enough to bring stories to life. This is not a skill all people have, and if they did, they would write their own books!
Just finished Nora/JD's new books. Can't wait for the next ones. In Forgotten in Death I appreciated the memory-refresh to the last In Death book-- it's hard to remember several months later. Also, thanks for Awakening--the new Irish series, I liked all the characters and am anxiously awaiting book 2. I wanted to jump into the space travel ring with them. I'd like to see what the tattoo looks like in Irish script. Where could I find something like that?
Well said! I love your books and have my favorites that I reread often. Always looking forward to the next!
I love this woman. I particularly love it when she speaks her truth to us! Yes!
Thank you for YOUR hard work. Reading is a joy to me. I get totally lost in a story and it takes me from my reality for a short time. I could never create the wonderful stories you and other authors do. Thank you for all your hard work!!!
So true! I enjoy reading your work. I would never presume to think that I was a part of creating it. You are an amazing writer. Keep them coming.
I love your work and am so thankful for what you do. You can transport me to another time, another world or another experience with your stories...notice I said YOUR stories. How could they think collaboration? They never touched a pen...did they collaborate on a tv show or a movie? They need to wake up and grow up. I love to read, unfortunately I am not one of those gifted enough to share stories, but I have a great imagination and can follow where you lead. Thank you for the entertainment.
Totally agree with you! I love the different "voices" to all of your characters, whether J.D. Robb, or Nora Roberts. I have read a lot of your books, and enjoy them a great deal.
I am amazed at the talent it takes to write a book, much less as many books as Nora does! I agree with her - it's her story to tell an no one else's. Most writers feel this way I think.
Wow, agree with your sentiment. Being able to read your great stories, year after year, gives me a view into lives or worlds that I may or not give thoughts to but never with fullness you have a gift for. Now that said I am fully all in Eve and Roarke's world. Now I have read how we will know when that series is done. But I sincerely hope it is not any time soon. Now if only the Sept and then Nov books come out....🤪
Dear Nora, first Thank You for your hard work. Your stories are awesome! I first discovered your books when a friend of mine lent me the first book in this series. She was a retired teacher who loved to read. I have both hard back and digital copies of this series and I can not imagine trying to come up with new characters and plots needed to continue this story. I say shame on anyone who thinks they contributed to the book by reading it. Please know that most of understand your hard work and appreciate it.
You are on the money and I call bullshit with you!!!! I’ve been so lucky to have read your books for years and able to go back and reread them often especially your in Death series. I hope you continue to write more wonderful books so I can enjoy them. Just try to ignore the crazy’s out there because they are obviously living in an alternate reality. lol
Thank you for sharing YOUR work with us! I think since social media came out there’s just way too much noise out there that’s irrelevant. This opinion would be one! You read so then you want to claim credit for writing the book?! Makes absolutely no sense! Love your words Nora!!
Some people are just like artwork ,they're just finished, don't let 'em get to ya Nora .
Yet another example of what an entitled human looks like. Sorry you have to deal with such people Nora, it’s ridiculous what authors have to put up with.
I had to dig back through the comments to find the exchange and wow - what a nut. Readers are not collaborators, they are end users. They benefit from a writer’s hard work putting a story and characters on a page, and reap the fruits of the writer’s labor. To sit back and say “your work doesn’t matter until *I* read it” is hubris at its finest.
I'm not surprised that Nora had an interaction like this. We have had a couple of generations who were raised to believe that their non-efforts were efforts.
Hear, hear, Nora! I love when you not only call BS, but go on to say very clearly exactly why it’s BS.
That’s kind of like claiming you had a part in the farming process because you bought the produce 🤦🏽♀️Entitlement at its worst. Don’t you worry Nora Roberts she can’t claim ownership on your writing as they know no one can be as ingenious as you are in creating the work you do.
I think it was the most terrifying few moments of Peabody's life up that point.
Isn't this the one with the effing effing eff tirade in the parking garage at Cop Central? Hilarious 😂
Peabody was so brave.
This one is one of my favorites! I had to pull it out for my bedtime reading because of this post. Thanks for the suggestion!🥰
One of my favorites. (If I could pick just one.)
Peabody came into her own in this book. Love when Eve took care of all the dirty cops.
To me this is one of the best story! Peabody & Eve clean up a really bad Lt & squad!!👍👏
Just finished rereading this for the 4th time! Now starting Celebrity in Death!
I think this one and Obsession might be my two favorites because they highlighted her extended family so well. Then Shadows came along and embraced Roarke in that same family, and it just topped the cake for me.
One of my favorite books bye you. Thank you for the wonderful writing envolved
I loved this one!
This is one of my favorite In Death books.
This was bone of my favorite books!
After Peabody settles down from the fear she felt; she knew that with Eve (her boss) in the picture they would take down the dirty cops. These cops sullied everything that Peabody worked to be and she knew that it would be a mission for Eve. Together with the other cops in her division they cleaned out the blight on the NYPSD.
Considering it was described, I believe, as "piss trickle" this graphic is probably the better choice.
I just reread this book. Actually I have reread this book at least 5 times. Love every minute. Oh, and the parking garage scene is one of the best sections. I won’t say what others are cos I don’t want to jump ahead. All of her books are good but there are some that are more memorable than others. This is one of them
I just re-read (audio version,) Treachery....I had forgotten how good it was. I think may be my favorite. Then again I have all the titles in my audio library. Maybe they are all favorites.🙃
Just reading this for the first time. Got me from the get go, haven’t been able to put it down.
It was such a scary scene! Peabody so vulnerable.
I’ve said it about a hundred times, but treachery is MY FAVOURITE BOOK EVER
One of my favorite scenes.
This one made me cry when they all salute Eve.
This one was an absolute heart pounding read.
That was a good one. That scene where Peabody was in the shower was suspenseful and terrifying.
Yeah, a very scary situation Peabody found herself in - this book is in my top three of the series to date
