Salvation in Death

Salvation in Death by JD Robb is the latest in the exciting In Death series. Eve Dallas and Peabody are given the case of a priest who dies while taking communion at a funeral. Since the wine is poisoned with cyanide, Eve knows it is murder. Once the priest is in autopsy, it is revealed that he might not have been who everyone believed. Eve discovers that the person was someone who had lived in the neighborhood years ago and had come back with a different face and name. Eve knows there is more to the story and with the help of her husband Roarke, she digs into the past to find to truth of the murder.

Robb also gives the reader their romantic fix of Eve and Roarke. They have such an amazing love for one another that jumps off the page. Even when they argue or push at one another, you can feel the love in the pushing. Robb also gives the reader a bit of romance with Peabody and McNabb. They are still in the early stages of their relationship(although they have been together over many books) and are still trying to learn how to accept each other's differences.

Salvation in Death gives the reader mystery, suspense, and lots of romance to keep the reader coming back for more.
