Thoughts on Naked in Death

I went into this book knowing that there would be A) romance, B) futuristic things and C) romance. I knew nothing else about it. Although I did like it, I was a little disappointed. I’m not sure what actually disappointed me though, and I’m sure, weeks from now I will be regretting my decision, but oh well.

I really enjoyed the characters. Lieutenant Eve Dallas was one of those female characters that make me proud to be a woman. She’s series about her job but also knows what she wants outside of her job. She has many dynamics to her and I think she was written really well. Roarke was the perfect male counterpart. He’s sexy and mysterious. I think they work well together.

I liked the plot as well. It’s creepy and dark. Not something someone should read if they want a cheery happy book. This book is gross. It will make you uncomfortable. It will make you cringe. But it’s an overall good plot that may not work with other authors.

I think what got me was the pace of the book. At times it was slow and I felt like it was dragging along, waiting for a clue to come up or another murder to happen. I can’t really say if this is a normal thing for Robb’s mystery books (but I know her romance books don’t drag along at all) since this is my first book.

Overall, I did enjoy the book and I will be continuing the series.

  1. This is one of my favorite series. They do drag sometimes, but I have never put one down and walked away. I mostly have to drag myself away and do things like go to work. She just released book 40 and the thing I love the most is the character development and growth, every book is like checking in to see how everyone is and oh yea someone is dead/dying.
