Betrayal in Death by J.D. Robb

Guest Author - Elizabeth Darrach

Hello, and welcome back! With the fickle spring weather we´re having, it might be a great week to catch on your to-be-read piles, and I have two books you should pull out of them right away.

First off, J. D. Robb´s latest, Betrayal in Death (Berkley) signals the return of Lieutenant Eve Dallas, cop extraordinaire. This time out, someone interrupts her evening with Roarke by murdering one of Roarke´s hotel housekeepers. But the killer´s a hired man, and he seems to be working his way closer to Roarke. Eve has to figure out who´s hired him before he gets too close. Having read up to this point in the series, it´s wonderful to watch the growth of these two people both separately and together, mostly together, though if I´m honest. And why shouldn´t I be? I´m reading for the romance, though the suspense is great, too. I hope Ms. Roberts continues to write new stories for this pair for a long time to come, because I´m looking forward to learning more about Eve´s past and seeing their relationship develop. I´m giving this one four of Cupid´s five arrows.


The second book I read this week is "Walk on the Wild Side" by Donna Kauffman (Harlequin Temptation). Sunny, aka Susan, Chandler needs to find herself before she takes on all the responsibilities her wealthy family have planned for her. Nick D´Angelo is less than pleased that she´s chosen his family restaurant to do it in. But of course, the sparks flying between them help to change his mind. I like Nick´s family a lot but have little sympathy for Sunny´s. This story is pleasant enough, but not a keeper for me. It gets three of Cupid´s arrows.


Finally, we have "Seducing Summer" by Toni Blake (Harlequin Temptation). Summer Avery is totally in control. Unless you count her one-night-stand with Brett Ford that gets her pregnant. Brett is determined to make her his forever, while Summer isn´t so sure that´s a good idea. Brett is a great hero, very thoughtful and sexy. My main and recurring thought while reading this book was that Summer wasn´t good enough for him. She´s extremely self-centered and I didn´t buy into her reasons for needing to stay in control. I kept wishing he´d dump her and find someone else. Of course, that wouldn´t work in a romance, but it was my reaction to this story. It gets only one of Cupid´s arrows, I´m afraid.


Until next week, happy reading!
