Hi, Everyone! In this episode, we are reviewing “Kindred in Death,” which, to be honest, is pretty graphic in comparison to a lot of the other books in this series. The first murder is a very brutal rape/murder and Nora added a lot of detail, so it’s really hard to read. But on the other hand, there are some really great moments in this one, including Eve having to deal with the final preparations for Charles and Louise’s wedding, and her Matron of Honor Duties where she has to wear “a yellow thing.”
Another highlight of this book is that, unfortunately, the first murder victim was good friends with Jamie Lingstrom, and Eve and Peabody have to break this news to him. BUT…the reason this is a highlight, is because Jamie insists on being in on the investigation, and we love whenever we get the opportunity to spend some time with Jamie. He’s a great asset to Eve’s investigation and to this books as a whole.
As always, the writing is top notch, even if some of it is difficult to read.
