Such a brilliant friendship. They are there for each other, knowing instinctively what to do for the other. Everyone should have at least one friend like this <3 x
This is the best quote about that most-important friendship in life. It transcends Eve and Mavis to everyone.
Mavis is Eve's sister. The first family she ever had. Love the way this relationship flows and Mavis keeps her from being to serious
I love this quote. Mavis is a friend and true family to Eve. They will always be there for each other. Even in circumstances that make Eve cringe, like a baby shower and birth, Eve is right there because it's important to Mavis.
Mavis is just the best thing that ever happened to Eve. Roarke is cool and all that, but if Eve had not been friends with Mavis she wouldn't have been able to connect with Roarke. I like how Eve ends up being a fantastic friend even if she doesn't understand how or why.
....and it goes deep. Blood ties mean nothing. They're inseparable
I am not sure Eve would be there without Mavis either
I love Mavis and Eve’s relationship! It’s so solid, nothing will ever break it!!
And Mavis is right.
This was such a lovely exchange between Eve and Mavis.
The love they have is special and I hope never broken, unless having hair and makeup done by Mavis' Trina counts lmao
Love this series it's one of my favorites.
I love the way that Mavis keeps Eve on an even keel in the areas that matter to her... to wit, physical appearance! I think it's hilarious every time Mavis and Trina gang up on Eve. 😀
well this got me doing a re-read1
Love you Eve.....]
I love how Eve & Mavis mesh! Eve need her to be able to become the woman she is. The same for Mavis. Perfection!
Love her openness when it matters❤
We should all be so lucky to have a best friend/sister relationship like Eve and Mavis
Mavis! She comes off so flighty but has such a firm core!!❤️
Eve and Mavis bring out sides of each other that might not show if they didn’t have the relationship they have.
We'll give this one more try. I think anyone -- whether they've given birth or not -- thinks this same thing when they consider what happens after full dilation. Edited to add: whether Nora meant scared or scarred, this is taken directly from the book - I don't edit or retype. So please refrain from grammar comments. NOTE: I appreciate all our newcomers, that's a given. We're keeping the discussion to the quotes, NOT to wishes about future stories. I've got a post pinned to the top of this page explaining why. If we can't do that, I'll move onto the next book. ~Laura ... See MoreSee Less
As an OB nurse, this book always makes me feel right at home. Reactions to birth are hysterical.
I’m happy to see wherever Nora takes the story. I think it’s funny, all the cringe-worthy scenes Eve has to endure. Shows she’s not just a bad ass murder cop!
I think i laughed the most while reading this book. The sheer horror felt by Eve and Rourke was hysterical.
"Oh God! My eyes."
I love the way her mind works!!!
I loved this book just because of this!
I remember reading the scenes to my husband, and he kept shaking his head up and down. He always says childbirth is not for the faint at heart. His advise to any spouse, is to hold her hands and stay at the top of the bed, never ever look under the sheets 😂😂😂
So funny to read their reaction to it. I love it
Eve and Rourke’s reaction made me laugh until I cried 😂
Only Eve and Roarke!
Dallas always comes through for her friends and loved ones...
The birthing center scenes are some of the funniest and sweetest.
I love the part when she comes home and finds Mavis without makeup in regular clothes and she agrees to everything Mavis asks....Im not sure if it was in this book or the one before. But loving the whole scene😍
This is one of the most hilarious scenes ever.....Eve & Roarke, who face so many other dangers, completely overwhelmed by the trauma of childbirth....I love it so much!!
Childbirth is not for the faint of heart. My husband would only stay by head.
The sheer horror the two felt together was absolutely hilarious! I love it when they have husband and wife solidarity on issues like this. It's hilariously funny every time!
Ha ha ha!!!! When I was in labor with my first one, my husband swears the doctors entire hand disappeared. 31 years later, he’s still traumatized.
Cracks me up that these two can take on anything...but childbirth freaks them out.
This and the fact that Eve is scared of cows which cracks me up!
Scared? I thought it was SCARRED.
This is still my favorite ‘In Death’ book. I love the humor in it.
EDIT: As I would be.
That was one of your funniest books I can’t wait for Mavis second child is born
I love all of her books, but the humour in the In Death series in juxtaposition to the darkness is incredible!! And the scenes revolving around Mavis' pregnancy are priceless!! Do'nt ever stop!!
1. One of my favorite books. 2. I’m highly distracted by the spelling mistake. Nothing else really matters after that.
Currently rereading it, it was the first book in the series that I read.
this is what I'm always telling my mum.
There is part of Eve's truth to being a cop
Reading it again today!
Roarke is more of a cop than he'd care to admit and he enjoys it too. 😉
Just reread it, one of my favorites. Already preordered Shadows
I keep rereading when what I need to do is finish the whole series for the first time🤦♀️ Reading Obsession now.
What is the new book about the one coming out in February 2021.
Anybody know ?
Love this book!
I just started reading this series 🙂
I'm not sure I could handle the kinds of adventures Eve and Roarke get into in each book. I would be completely and utterly exhausted!!
With Eve it isn't just a job it is what she is
To Eve being a cop is her life, it was before Roarke and even with him and the many changes she's seen and love she gets unconditionally she is still a cop but as she puts it a better one now that she has a life also.
I can see certain actors or people in all the characters of the in death series except Roarke. So here is my take on Roarke, a young Hugh Jackman face with Paul Hollywoods eyes and Loki ( Tom Hiddleson) hair. Body of a young Pierce Brosnon. Maybe 🤔🤔
Love these books!!
Have read them all, started to listen to audio where available... then have to go to my book cause I missed something....
Love this book
I am doing the series again from start to finish! Amazing what you forget! Plus new books get added so you get new ones at the end! More fun! It IS an Addiction!🤪🤷♀️💞
I reread every one, in order, then the new one is out and I am caught up, so I start over again, etc...
Boy sounds like things don’t get any better in the future for MIB they put their lives out their and the pay sucks, as Eve says it’s the adventure.
Anyone who enjoys reading Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb needs to read "Remember When". I read this years ago and recently picked it up at a used book store to reread. A great read--hard to put down--
I loved her books as Nora Roberts and J D Robb.!❤️❤️❤️
Love this series. I am working on my 2nd read through. Keep them coming J.D.!
