A nameless cat surprises Eve at a crime scene. Do NOT jump to the end of the book. What was your first impression of this prickly lieutenant picking up a cat? -Laura
#cat #firstimpression #nakedindeath

Text reads:
“Jesus, where’d you come from?” She let out a long, cleansing breath as she replaced her weapon. “There’s a cat,” she added for the record, and when it blinked at her, flashing one gold and one green eye, she bent down to scoop it up.
The purring sounded like a small, well oiled engine.

I was a little surprised at first, because Eve seemed so focused and a little hardened. But, you know... cat! 🙂

Alas, I can't recall my first impressions to these scenarios, even though I used to have a great memory. At least, I think I did ... Snicker

I thought the cat was going to have evidence on it, like blood on the paws or something snagged on a claw or collar.

"Small" being a relative term...

It makes sense that she would pick the cat and take it home. She's better with the cat than people.

She was grateful, relieved and surprised!

I remember being surprised Eve's heart softened as fast as it did when the cat showed up. You knew right then there was more to her than the hard, no frills cop.

It was obvious from the beginning that Galahad decided to adopt Eve as his person. Otherwise she wouldn't have been able to pick him up. Cats are like that.

I just love this cat

That's when I fell in love with her

Have to say I was surprised that she decided to take the cat with her. But we had already begun to see some of Eve’s reluctant caring nature. 😊. I think I’m remembering how she handled the rookie cop with the first murder?

Cats get into any harden heart. And he was possible evidence.

I thought it was great. You can trust an animal more than you can people.

Being familiar with the author, I knew the cat would have some significance. I thought it was a great way to show Eve was not cold or robotic

It was immediately obvious that the cat would be someone special in Eve’s life.

I was surprised she picked the cat up.

I just reread this book! I am starting the whole series over! Love it!

What will Dallas do with this cat?

Aww

Red that book very good story

I worried about the cat when he was taken to the bullpen. Was so hoping that it would be ok!

For some reason I can definitely see Eve with a cat since they are finicky and do things their way. Seems like a perfect pair.

Galahad! ❤️

I was surprised she picked it up

Eve only had a thing for livestock. If the New York City of her time is the same as it is now she sees lots of feral cats. Other crime scenes would have had pets. I didn't think anything about it. We forget Eve went straight from the horrifying scene of the little girl to Sharon's murder. Those of us who have pets know we need comforting at times so we stroke. Eve was at the 3rd crime scene and needed that moment.

We'll end the week with the Furst Impression of Nadine (see what I did there? Couldn't resist.) I know we see Chief Simpson talk down to her so I thought we'd go with the first scene between Eve and Nadine. So, what did you think? -Laura

Great team from the beginning

Sleek woman Nadine is!!! I was curious about their relationship and glad to see Nadine as Eve's family. Nora has a way of evolving each and every single character in this series!!!

They are good together!

Solid person and very similar goals to get the job done as Eve does.

She seems more respectful than most media people these days.

They were kindred spirits at 1st meeting and still stand strong side by side.

It had been fun reading about how their relationship has evolved. They have very similar ethics, but expressed them in very different ways.

Part of the smart girls' club. The recurring female characters are all highly intelligent in their own right. Together they are one super force to be reckoned with.

Nadine immediately struck me as determined, collected, and put-together. ☺️

Cute turn on her name!!

I wasn't sure at first if she was going to be an ally, knowing reporters in other stories and movies who would lie, cheat and steal to get their stories. But by the end of the book, I was pretty sure they'd be "partners" in the future. 🙂

Eve is not a fan of reporters but Nadine shoots straight with her. Eve respects her point of view and gives Nadine a chance to prove herself.

Strong, focused and determined to get what she wants the story.

Straightforward which I liked

Nadine is fair and a woman of her word

I liked Nadine from the first time she showed up. It has been fun watching how she and Eve have grown in their friendship

typo Furst for First

Plus it’s we can work together, not against the other

I realised from the start Nadine was going to be important to Eve x

Showed great potential for being allies, and I’ve really enjoyed watching the friendship develop.

respect, ally, girl pals.

Eve recognized in Nadine another "true" New Yorker, one who took no prisoners, so to speak! (Sorry, couldn't resist!) The were doing the same job in different ways, but they got the job done.

That's funny. I'm just now rereading Naked in Death and just after I closed the book (lunchtime over, time to get back to work) Nadine and Dallas have their first personal chat. Couldn't have times it better.

Be nice together

Love all the smart ladies in this series , talented and kind in their roles ☺️

I'm working on the road/mainly on my phone so went for this gorgeous view to substitute for JD's description of Roarke's bed. You can understand Eves First Impression ("Holy God") after reading about her apartment. -Laura

Text reads:
It was huge, a lake of midnight blue cupped between high carved wood. It stood on a platform beneath a domed sky window. Across from it was a fireplace of pale green stone where fragrant wood sizzled.

I'm pretty sure Roarke's bed, alone, was bigger than Eve's whole apartment. 😂😂

So glad this was chosen as I also felt it was a powerful first impression

The description of the bed & the rest of the bedroom suite is amazing! I dint think anyone could resist!

Such a wonderful description sounded like heaven.

I just started reading this series last year. It's been great to read them back-to-back-to-back (I'm on #53). The thing I love the most is the development of all the relationships as the series goes on. Eve with everyone, and everyone with everyone. She's the fulcrum for this huge friend group, and looks around in confusion at all the people. Peabody and McNabb, Feeny, Baxter and Truehart, Mavis and Leonardo, Nadine, Mira and dreamy Mr. Mira, even scary Trina-they are all like family and I love seeing how they interact!! Thank you for writing such an excellent series. I only wish I had listened to my mom and read it when they first came out!

I would never get out of that bed... for many reasons!

I think this is a great picture to go with the description of Roarke’s bed. Love the series.

I wanted to swim in that lake.

So, why do I feel like a nap now? 😴

So envious of that room x

Oh yeah😊❤️

Love these books always waiting for the next one.

Somehow my 1st JD ROBB, was Portrait in Death. Well then had to get caught up. Waiting for Webster's or Nadine's wedding. And of course the The Mirror.

Yes quite a shock

Love this series

I’ve always envied that bed.

I had forgotten about this description. Sounds heavenly!

My first impression upon reading NAKED IN DEATH was ... I want a bed ... and room ... like this!!!

Well there are 5 stars in the sky. Perfectly apt for this dreamy bedroom and a book that will stay in my memory always. Sweet Dreams all. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The bed is so Roarke, but Eve's impression is great, love when she said "you sleep here".

I will take the bed and the auto chef!

No description about it being the size of a state in this one, eh? 😉

❤️🦋

Loved that description of it because I can picture it

Yeah and only billionaire can afford the sheets...😂
