Check That Off the List! We Review "Haunted in Death," By J.D. Robb
As usual, this episode goes ever so slightly off the rails a couple of times.
We start out talking about how “Haunted in Death” was part of an anthology, “Bump in the Night,” where 4 writers, Nora, Mary Blayney, Ruth Ryan Langan and Mary Kay McComas each wrote a novella around a specific theme. In this case, the theme was “paranormal,” so Nora wrote hers about Eve being assigned a case that involves the ghost of a singer from the 1960’s. This morphs into a discussion of how Nora is a bit of a bitch in a good way by calling out people who need to be called out. Then it morphs into a discussion of how women writers, especially romance writers sometimes need balls to survive in the industry. Later, we go off topic talking about a couple of 60’s rock stars that were/are garbage humans.
Nora, as we all know is a huge fan of writing paranormal, and though it doesn’t really fit into the “In Death” world, we think Nora had a ton of fun writing it. And, at least in this one, Eve isn’t possessed.
This is a very short book, but all the things we all love about this series are here, so reviewers can make a checklist to complain about, like Eve eating pizza and she and Roarke having sex.
This book is not one of Tara’s favorites, but we think she at least liked it a little bit more after this episode.
