Oddly, Vera is Not the Worst - We Review Encore in Death
/

In this episode, we review the latest “In Death” installment, “Encore in Death.” So, if you haven’t read this one yet, you may want to skip this episode.

Our overall impressions of this book are that it’s good, but not one of the best of the series. We liked it, but didn’t LOVE it. There were some really fantastic scenes in this book, as in every book. But we didn’t think the murder plot wasn’t as interesting as other books.

We all pretty much hated Vera from the beginning, but oddly, we don’t think Vera is the worst character in this book. Maeve was much worse, and we wanted her to go down for something, too.

Great moments like Eve’s initial questioning of Vera, Peabody telling Eve about cheesy Christmas movies, Eve giving Peabody 5 minutes to gush about the MLDI home renovation, Eve making fun of the tourist who got her purse snatched, the bank teller who confides in Eve that after she saw the “Icove Agenda,” she realized how many people are clones.

Possibly the best moment in the book is when Roarke gives Eve her anniversary present early: New “ThinShield” body armor vests for everyone in her bullpen.

We also find out the song that Eve and Roarke danced to on their wedding day, and it’s none of the songs we talked about on our “We Plan Eve and Roarke’s Wedding” episode. AND, Roarke made a major property purchase in Eve’s name and we are here for it!
