Celebrity in Death by J.D. Robb

Title: Celebrity in Death

Series: In Death bk

Author: J.D. Robb

Genre: Murder Mystery

Lieutenant Eve Dallas is no party girl, but she’s managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity-packed bash celebrating The Icove Agenda, a film based on one of her famous cases. It’s a little spooky seeing the actress playing her, who looks almost like her long-lost twin. Not as unsettling, though, as seeing the actress who plays Peabody drowned in the lap pool on the roof of the director’s luxury building. Now she’s at the center of a crime scene-and Eve is more than ready to get out of her high heels and strap on her holster and step into the role she was born to play: cop.

When it comes to Police Mysteries no one does it better than J.D. Robb. Once again she has managed to sweep me into the life of Lt. Eve Dallas and her band of merry men, and her sexy as all get out husband Roarke. I had no expectations of this book, which I think is a good thing because when you have expectations of a book you can be disappointed.

This is one book that you do need to have read a specific book before reading this one. You need to have read Origin in Death to understand some of what is happening in the beginning of the book.

The Icove Agenda (Origin in Death) the book that Nadine wrote about what happened during that case is being made into a movie. The beginning of the book had me laughing out loud. There were some conversations that I have to share..

In the beat of a horrified silence, Eve studied K.T dpwn the length of the table. “Peabody?”

“Yes, sir,” Peabody said, shoulders hunched.

“You know how I occasionally mention the possibility of kicking your ass?”

“I’d term that as regulary, but yes, sir, I do.”

“You may get the chance to watch me kick your fake ass while you sit comfortably on your own. That’s an opportunity that doesn’t come around every day.”

There is another conversation that happens between Eve and Roarke about sex tapes that made me laugh out loud and had DH looking at me rather weird. I will however let you discover that conversation on your own.

This is one of those cases where Eve isn’t sure who committed the crime and sets about figuring it out. There isn’t  a lot of action in this book, but more humor and conversation which has was a nice change.

If you’re a fan of this series then you will like this book. I know I did.
