AJ and Jen welcome a special guest to “Podcast in Death Studios,” Romance Author Judy Kentrus! Judy gives us a preview on her 22nd book, Frozen Hearts. We talk about “fudgies” in Michigan, Frankenmuth and how California is a crazy state in more ways than one.
Judy was one of our good friends from the “In Death Dot Net” days. She has been reading the series since day one when she found “Naked in Death” (with an original “Blue Lady” cover) at a Barnes and Noble in New Jersey.
We (yet again) discuss the “In Death” audiobooks and how Judy and AJ love Susan Ericksen, and how if you are someone who is not a fan of Eve, listen to the audiobooks and see if you change your mind.
Judy gives us a breakdown of Eve and Roarke’s characters and why they work together, even though they’re both strong “alpha” characters.
AJ highly recommends that any of our listeners who are fans of the romance genre listen to the Fated Mates podcast. It’s one of the best podcasts out there for romance readers.
We talk about whether or not Roarke is an Anti-Hero, and should Eve and Roarke have a baby? Or is this series just about Eve and Roarke and how they are stronger together, and maybe their HEA is just that, and doesn’t require a baby. For those who want to know what Nora has said about Eve and Roarke having a baby, please visit the “In Death Wiki” at Fandom.com.
Is Eve unlikeable as a character? Or is she like the Tin Man in the “Wizard of Oz,” and we judge her heart not by how much she loves, but by how much she is loved by others.
Some of our Instagram followers tell us about their favorite Eve and Roarke scenes. We all decide that “Portrait in Death” is a fantastic book, and we’re looking forward to reading it for the Podcast.
We all decided we love Nadine Furst’s boyfriend, Jake Kincade, who is introduced in “Apprentice in Death.”
We also decide that Eve and Roarke need to have another big fight, and we’re hopeful that maybe the next book coming out, “Shadows in Death” might have that. Jen says that one of her online friends has already read “Shadows in Death” and says that it’s amazing, so everyone pre-order it!!
AJ puts the call out to any of our listeners who are native Irish/Gaelic speakers: we would love to have an Irish speaker on the podcast to give us a mini-lesson on the language and talk about the words Roarke uses in the series. If you want to be that person, Contact Us!!
AJ makes the announcement that all the Fan Fiction from “In Death Dot Net” is still in the queue to be uploaded to Archive Of Our Own. Hopefully, that will be finished soon, and we will let everyone know when they are available.
Judy says that if you pick up her book, “Right Turn, Wrong Heart,” you might recognize that the main character is a lot like Jen! All of her books are available on Amazon.com, and you can learn more about Judy on her website, JudyKentrus.com. Judy is also on Facebook, and has a Facebook Group, Judy’s Gems. She’s also on Instagram and Twitter.
