Recommendations from Maia November 2013.

In order to bring some more variety to my blog, I have asked my best friend Maia to tell about the books she has read in the past month, and to give us a recommendation.

Maia:

Last month I've read 6 books and 4 novellas.
I've read the last of the Arcane series books by Jayne Ann Krentz in her Amanda Quick persona, the latest JD Robb, a zombie book and a historical romance. The novellas are written by J.D. Robb, Gini Koch, Thea Harrison and Jennifer Ashley.

And the 3 books I enjoyed the most are:

J.D. Robb - Thankless in Death

Thea Harrison - The wicked (novella)

Jennifer Ashley - The untamed MacKenzie (novella)

The one I can recommend to all Aurian’s readers is Thankless in Death, the 37th full book in the In Death series by J.D. Robb (Nora Roberts).

Murder doesn't stop for Thanksgiving.
As the household of NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband Roarke prepares for an invasion of family and friends, an ungrateful son decides to stop the nagging from his parents - by ending their lives.
Soon Jerald Reinhold is working his way through anyone who has ever thwarted him in his path to an easy life. Eve is increasingly frustrated in her efforts to cover all the potential victims as Jerald stays a terrifying step ahead.
As the festivities begin, Eve is desperate to identify which victim on Jerald's long list will be the next, so she can stop the killing spree...

This is one of my favourite series. Futuristic police procedural with romance. For the few readers of Aurian’s blog who haven't read them, the main character is Eve Dallas, a policewoman, and every book is a case.
There is a lot of back-story on Eve's personal life and her friends. And of course there is Roarke...
I love the way JD Robb writes about their lives, love and friends. I will read a new book or novella as soon as I receive it.

Thankless is not the emotional rollercoaster like "New York to Dallas" or one of the first books "Conspiracy in Death", but it is still a very good book. You know the killer, but he is lucky and stays one step in front of her. There is still some suspense in how she is going to catch him.
Favourite part is the interaction between Eve and Roarke, especially when they're being honored. Sweet!


Aurian: Thanks for the recommendation Maia, and as I read almost all those stories myself, I heartily agree with you this month. What about you readers, are you J.D. Robb and/or Nora Roberts fans? You can find my review of Thankless in Death here.
