Anyone else notice this PB edition is bigger than the other 51 books and 7 anthologies in the series? Not trade size, just ever so slightly taller and wider. My eyes are happy, but my bookshelf is now broken.
Whhhyyyy is it a different size? My bookshelf is going to look wonky now. #FirstWorldProblems
Laura – can you tell me if the books where the In Death book appears as part of an anthology, such as Dead of the Night, Bump in the Night, etc were the anthologies ever issued as hardcovers? I am trying to complete my hardcover In Death collection. Thanks!
Going through my collection of in death books to see what I don't have. Re reading rapture in death.
Already have it in hardback but can’t wait for the next one lol
One of the better novels in the past few years. Still wish a Seasoned cop could do her job with out her hubby.
Just got it!!!
Just got it..
I love the way things develop in a J D Robb book!
Loved this book!
Yay! Just bought this today, can’t wait to dive in. JD Robb/Nora Roberts my all time favorite author. Thanks thanks thanks so much for such GREAT reads.❤️
Bought mine today.
My copy is on the way, should arrive Friday. ❤️📚📚
I wish it were the same size as all the others. I'm freaking a little that the symmetry is gone. 😬
I know there are closet fairies, boot elves and auto chefs in Eve's world. But you know what I'd like? A Laundry Mage who magically cleans and folds and puts away clothes. (Guess we could consider Summerset the Laundry Mage Overseer, huh?) ~Laura ... See MoreSee Less
I'd like a Housecleaning/Clean Dishes/Kitchen fairy! I like to cook, and oddly enough don't mind laundry since I got a compact front loader set (and hubby helps fold and put away), but housework is not my fav.
I'd like a cleaning fairy. We used to have cleaning fairys when we lived in Chicago... I'd leave a check and they'd come and take out the garbage, wipe the floors, clean the bathrooms, and the kitchen and stack everything neatly. And dust. I have a very shedding dog. I have dust bunnies bigger than the cats.
I want a machine that irons and folds the ironing without me doing it. 😆🤣😂 I just love the boot 👢😍elves. Wish I had some of those. Roarke loves 💘giving Eve new clothes surprising her. She must have quite a wardrobe by now, also with Leonardo designed dresses 👗. ❤
The Laundry Mage must be good at removing blood stains and sewing on buttons on Roarke's shirts. Sometime I should keep tracak of how many articles of clothing get ruined.
I need a shoe fairy right now. Every morning, before getting out of bed, I plan my day. Every morning I tell myself that today I'll go shoe shopping, and once up I think, I'll do it tomorrow. Some people shop, I procrastinate, because I really can't be bothered with such things. I need a "Shoe Fairy"
I can't remember which book, but Roarke was working on a new washer/dryer unit with an optional droid attachment who would take care of everything. Wouldn't that be your Laundry Mage?
I want a fairy that goes around behind my husband and son and magically puts stuff back to where they found it -- not where they think it should go. 🙄🙄
But it wouldn't be bad to have the housekeeping fairy as well.
I could go for that too but would really love the auto chef as long as I didn’t have to stock it. I’ve cooked for most of my life and am tied of it.
Eve always wonders who the who the closet elves are when it comes to new boots, and figures she has to many because they'll only get beat up. As for the laundry I wouldn't mind if it and the housework could do itself every now and then. But I agree with Sharon it never makes it to the closet or dresser.
I usually don't mind the washing, drying and folding. But for some reason the clean clothes never seem to get to the closet or dresser. Good thing I have a lot of laundry baskets.
I think about that washer/dryer Roark was designing and the droid attachment A LOT!
I want a drying tube in the pool locker room. No need to change. Go home in your dry swimsuit!
I believe Roarke Enterprises was developing a washer dryer system that would do that in one of the books.
Would love to see in Dallas's wardrobe, would be like the magic pudding, never ending 🤣
I would love some of the technology that Eve Dallas has! I really think we are slowly getting some of them and to JD Robb we thank you for the ideas!
I agree with a Laundry Madge. I would like all from Eve's world, but I don't know any rich Irish guys to help me out. But it is okay to dream.
I assume the boot elves and closet fairies are pals. They have an open invitation to my closet anytime.
Oh, I really like that idea. Someone to wash, dry, fold and put away the clean clothes. 😊
I would love the dryer Eve steps into after the showers!
In one of the books Roarke is reviewing plans for a washer/dryer/folder machine. That right there and a droid to put it all away is my dream.
I want a kitchen fairy. Or even a grumpy kitchen gnome, as long as he does the dishes.
Totally off subject, but I need someone to explain the Auto Chef to me... does Summerset cook the things then load them already cooked into the various Auto Chefs? Or do you just load the raw ingredients in a voila? Either way I would super love this to actually exist, but I can never figure it out! lol
The Laundry Mage would be a very welcome asset in my house! There’s little I like less than doing the laundry… thank god I don’t have to iron…
I'd rather have a Roarke to select and buy a beautifully coordinated wardrobe for me.
I would love a few house cleaning droids so I could read more JD Robb and Nora books with the extra time I would have x
Any time! Coffee wakes me up but doesn't keep me awake
1 pm ...... and I only decaf now .... at any time of the day. I literally bounce off walls if I drink "full leaded" as my father called it <3
Anytime. Coffee’s caffeine doesn’t affect me. I can go right to sleep if I’m tired and have just had a cup. I usually drink Pepsi.
Noon. But the funny thing is I can drink coffee in the morning and take a really good nap in the afternoon but cant drink a cup of coffee at 1pm and get to sleep at night.
Usually, no caffeine after 1 p.m. Once in a while I can drink tea or a soda in the afternoon and still manage to go to sleep by 11 p.m.
Used to be I could have a cup after dinner and still sleep at night. Not now. Anything after 3 pm and I'm awake for hours. I'm working to train myself to be awake in the morning for an hour or more before that first cup of coffee. Most days, that's all I need any more.
That's hard for me to answer because I live with chronic pain and fatigue. I don't work and don't have a schedule. I sleep when I can get it, and more often than not, I sleep during the day and am up at night. Right now, it's just after 10:30pm, I'm wide awake, and sipping coffee. I haven't had any in a couple days, because I also have a bad stomach.
I don't drink coffee and have never even tasted it. I will wait for the gasps to subside. LOL
As long as I don't drink more than 3 cups I can drink it right before bed. But I sleep really easy it actually harder to stay awake then is to sleep. Its funny though coffee is the only caffeine that makes me jittery.
I can only drink my coffee in the morning, the hubby on the other hand can drink it right up until he goes to bed and still fall asleep instantly. SMH
I have one large mug first thing in the morning and usually one with lunch and then it's water and milkless tea for the rest of the day. Coffee makes me pee a lot, so that's really why I had to cut it back.
I usually drink a Frappuccino to help me go to sleep. ADHD is a pain in the butt
I drank a cup of Death Wish coffee (I believe it's the equivalent of 3 cups of regular) and then took a 4 hour nap 🤷
My Mom could work a full 12 hour shift as a 3rd shift RN, drink a whole pot of coffee then go straight to sleep.
Given I can't have iced tea past noon, I don't understand..
I can fall asleep in the middle of a cup so anytime for me really! Maybe I’m immune
Caffeine doesnt keep me up, but coffee will b/c it causes gastric distress. 😳
My superpower (if you want to call it that) is that I can function at 100% on no caffeine at all.
I can drink it in bed as I am reading my going to sleep book! On the down side, it won't help me stay awake when I need to!
I don't drink coffee but my husband will make a pot when he can't sleep. He says it relaxes him and he can then fall asleep. I might add he has frontotemporial dementia and that might have something to do with it.
Laura, I have never drank coffee. I can’t even stand the smell of it. I however am an ice tea snob. I ninety nine percent of the time will only drink Tejava tea. I can drink it from morning till bedtime. That and water are my continuous beverages of choice.
Take my last sip and then head to bed. It's not my fault that coffee is addicted to me.
I’ve been drinking coffee (at any hour, day or night) for almost 50 years and I haven’t had a problem sleeping yet! Including during college years when I needed to stay awake and study. Not sure if that’s a blessing or a curse, but I’m not complaining.
I can (and do) drink tea all day. Standard, everyday, black tea. But my limit is one cup of coffee, not after about 4 pm, and not every day. I love coffee (a la Peabody), but I can't drink it every day. 🙁
I never learned to like coffee which is a good thing since caffeine bothers my stomach.
2:00pm otherwise I will be too late. But a couple of friends can drink it all day long.
I don’t drink coffee. I am a tea drinker and can drink black tea which has the most caffeine at any time. Apparently caffeine doesn’t affect me at all.
