Nora Roberts, aka JD Robb has done it for the 34th book in the In Death series. Celebrity in Death follow Eve Dallas, Roarke, Peabody, and the rest of the cast as they investigate the death of an actress playing Peabody in a movie about the Icove case (from Origin in Death).
Roberts’s, aka Robb’s, characters are consistently interesting, likable, funny, and flawed. They argue, they bicker, they support one another, just like real friends and family do. Reading an In Death is like visiting old friends, except with murder.
If you’re a fan of the series, I recommend this book, two thumbs up. If you’ve never read any of these books, you could start with this one, but I’d recommend starting from the beginning. Around book 30 or so, I went back to the beginning and read them all straight through. While it was interesting to see the growth of all the characters straight through, I was ready to put the books down toward the end. It’s pretty much the same as having house guests; though I might love them, it’s time for them to go home after awhile.
