This gave Eve a springboard for her fear and her past. Also is gave her the instinct to tell Roarke how she felt about what would be achieved at Docas. It strengthened her bond with Peabody also.
Reading Golden in Death right now. Diabolical! A really good read!
I think it’s time for another wrench in Eve life! Like a sibling or grandparent!
Eve will always face her demons, she wouldn't think of doing anything else. Dochas is a haven which was denied to her and Roarke but she knows just how much it can help those who are as vulnerable as she was. <3 x
I really love this book, for this part here, when she finally went to Dochas, and when we really see how strong her bond is and how deep her feelings are for Peabody.
Love. Love. Love.
She managed to make it about healing and Let Roarke know how much what he did means to her
This is one of the reasons I continue to read this series.. Eve and Roarke continue to grow as people it’s not just a story in the first book and over with
Just goes to show how much Roark loves Eve he built Dochas in her honor what she had been through in her youth.
Love this series. All the characters are great. That’s what makes you read it again and again.
I restarted the series and am now on concealed in death. I love the conversations between Eve and Roarke, the word play cracks.me up.
Wow, I haven’t read Visions- now is a super time to download it!
Dochas was built by Roarke because of all Eve had gone through as a child. It's a beautiful testament to their love and continuing to grow marriage.
Eve healed. She knows Dochas will help others heal.
I'm re-reading the series and just finished Divided and am on to Visions next.
Parts of this book were really hard for me, but very helpful to get people thinking.
I cannot keep crying on the keyboard........these words- for I Wouk day think is the 4th time I am reading them ........😥
Loved that book but I have loved them all.
Eve knows just how to explain things to Roarke to melt his heart 🥰
Eve is the strongest character I have ever read in any book.
Docas gave Eve a way to come to terms with her past. Roarke too for that matter. They were both damaged.
A long time ago, before the world changed (aka February) we started discussing Visions in Death. After the action packed March, these discussions will feel slower, but it's good to mix things up. When last we saw them, Eve and Peabody toured Dochas (Eve reluctantly) and discussed Celina Sanchez with Louise Dimatto. After, Peabody asked Eve what was wrong. Eve brushed her off, then backtracked. And this is what she said: ~Laura ... See MoreSee Less
I just finished that book on autio when Eve finally tells Peabody it's because she is having a hard time keeping it under control. I thinkthis is happening because she is more and more comfortable with Peabody. The fact that this is true is what I like about the interaction between the charectors for the tear jerkers and the laughs, I love the comedy between the two of them sometimes I am laughing through my tears. Gotta love that.
Hard for Eve to say anything but Peabody actually knew more than Eve realised, she just had to fill in the blanks. Eve doesn't open up easily and would hate for her past to get in the way of her job. <3 x
Why do people keep asking when Eve is going to be pregnant?
That just can't happen. It will be the end of the series!
And Nota herself has said so.
Please just stop.
I appreciate Eve's honesty and bluntness. She knows she might have issues and she knows that Delia is there for her, but she's not ready. And she is able to say, "no."
Enuf already ! Nora has said never !! So let it go !! The reason we love her is her ideas make brilliant books / stories !
When Eve has her memories, when she feels her arm snap, gets me every time.
Was glad when she finally told Peabody.
I read this right after I read a nurse in Detroit describing her last shift - the deaths, the quick worsening of the coronovirus patients and the sheer numbers of patients. She said the shift was a the hardest ever and she knew the next one would be worse. And I thought about Eve knowing what she would face in that shelter but going in anyway. So tough and yet fragile. This nurse is the same. She will go back for that next shift and for all the ones she is needed.😪
Eve is strong enough not to let her past, or a situation in the present the pulls her back to her past, effect her job and responsibilities. The fact that she would even say this to Peabody, shows you how much their relationship has grown/changed, since Peabody made Detective! I'm sorry that the visit and the little girl with the broken arm caused a flashback for Eve, but it was important for her to see the place, see the women and children that were residing there and being helped, see what a terrific thing Roarke had done!
So, can you please put in a word at Roarke Industries and have them come up with COVID-19 vaccine, and then time travel back to 2020 with it... 🙏🏻
I enjoy the way Dallas and Roarke act around Bella, they definitely love her.
The best parts are the relationships and the growth they've shown over time. Eve & Roarke, Eve & Peabody, Eve & Mira, Eve and everybody! Her relationship with Roarke has/is gradually healing all the damage done when she was a child. Now she allows herself to love and be loved. These people are more real to me than is probably healthy. I love these books. Thank you, JD/Nora.
I love Peabody so compassionate, she would do anything for Eve. Even though Eve gives her a hard time but Peabody accepts for who she is that's true love!!💞
Yes I think adoption of a troubled teenager is the ticket!! Maybe one who turns out to be pregnant... hmmm that would be very interesting
when are you going to let her get pregnant? now that would be funny
People have to stop suggesting that Eve and Roarke have a baby. Ms. Roberts has stated that that will mark the end of the series. I for one don't want to see this series to end. And why do they need a baby. It's 2020. Babies aren't required
I love that that place was a gift to her. It was beyond thoughtful. A wonderful expression of his love for her. 💕
Eve and Peabody have the best partnership! They respect each other and have each others back always. Eve’s criticisms and Peabody’s sass makes it all the more enjoyable.
It has take a long time for Eve to remember and now she is getting used to having Peabody there and picking up on things. They have grown into friends with Eve still trying to process how to handle something she never had before. These characters show us that these things happen in real life also and that like Eve and all her friends she making she will learn to balance it out. Love these books and keep going back to re-read.
For the most part, Eve is wrong here. What's going on in one's life affects your job and balance. Partners work very closely together, and they need to trust one another, let alone want to help one another. Eve doesn't open up much, always seems surprised by what her friends do outside of their jobs.
That's strange. I can't remember Eve and Peabody going to Dochas together. I'll have to read this one again.
Eve picked a good person and friend to share her story with. I think it only cemented their friendship. Peabody is as trustworthy as they come.
I love Peabody compassion. Her sense of duty and compassion grew the more she worked around Eve Dallas. Not to mention her sass.
My favorite scenes are when Eve tells Peabody about her past, or things she remembers. I love that Eve gets mad that Peabody cries and that Peabody hugs Eve and embarrasses her. It’s an amazing partnership.
What about our freeager getting pregnant. That's a whole different story line; cop, partner, protective yet cringeworthy. Its not similar to Mavis, adds a different depth. I dont see Eve and Roarke having kids. But being aunts/uncles to kids deffinitely.
Eve has grown over the series in all of her relationships. I, as a reader, really feel the range of emotions - sign of a great author!
I love the Dynamics between Eve and Delia. Partners, friends. The best conversations in the books are between Eve and Delia. Roarke and Mavis provide a different dynamic.
In case you want a diversion this evening. Join me over on the Nora Roberts page for a catchup conversation. Nora doesn't join these pop ups since we're not in the same place, nor is she out for an event. So just me. But I can answer questions! And if you'd like a JD Robb centric FB live next week, let me know in the comments. ~LauraAnyone up for an evening (ish) Live? How about April 2 at 8:15 pm EDT (5:15 on the west coast). We can catch up and check in. Nora won't be there but I will. Leave questions in the comments and I'll answer them tomorrow. ~Laura ... See MoreSee Less
I would LOVE to join! But wit my precious love on hospice, evenings are when he REALLY wants me by his side. He'd LIKE me to do nothing but sit with him at ALL times. Unfortunately, I can't do that.
I'll do my best to be there. Meanwhile, I have a question for you, Laura. Is Nora's publisher still going to release the JD Robb books in mp3 cd format? I used to be able to pre-order the hardcover, kindle and cd all at once and now only a multiple cd format is available. What gives?
I vote yes for the JD Robb next week. I don't know how I miss these things. I was on FB last night and didn't see this until just now, 18 hours later. 😭
Her latest #50 my evening ride reading 📚. Absolutely 💯 love Dallas ❤
I would love the JD Robb centric FB live next week unable to join you tonight unfortunately thank you for all you do stay safe
Hope to join in tonight. And yes to JD sometime next week!
Please why do you always write "Laura (Not Nora)?
I don't understand.
Love this events.
Yes I'm in for tonight.
Would like to know if you need to read the In Death Series in order or ok to miss one?
That would be awesome!
Names, how's Nora fix character names?
In for tonight.
I vote for the JD ROBB live next week
Count me in!
Ditto fo JD next week!
Will definitely be listening tonight. For next week if you cover JD Robb, if we're new to the series (I'm on #8), should we skip it or will it be generic where we won't hear spoilers?
I've been thinking about this for a while since so many of us are staying close to home: where IS your home? I'll start: I'm in Frederick MD. And as an homage to Eve and her difficulty with time zones, it's 12:27 pm (EDT) on April 1. Share your location and time in the comments. Photos very much encouraged. ~Laura ... See MoreSee Less
