Eve and Roark were at it again. They were tracking a sadistic killer that had ties to Roark in his youth. The bad guy was a total whack job complete with a God complex. Or maybe he thought he was a messenger of God. Either way, he was a major creeper. Eve had her hands full skirting the lines of legality in this one. She had to trust McNabb who was covering for Feeney when he was on vacation. Trying herself to cover Somerset to protect Roark. Uncovering more of Roark’s checkered past and attempts on her life.

I really enjoyed this story because it was fast paced and they even went to Ireland. I enjoyed all the accents when they were in Roark’s homeland. I like that maybe in the future there will be some sort of a truce between Eve and Somerset.

 As usual, I enjoyed the on going love story of Eve and Roark, Peabody and the rest of the gang. Still a good series and I will continue on after a short break.

It amazes me that this series hasn’t lost any luster for me yet. The build up of all the characters is slow but steady. I always enjoy these books and anticipate what will come next. Honestly, when I started this I was apprehensive and even had to call one of my blog partners to make sure there wouldn’t be demonic happenings in this story.

Eve’s latest case involves witchcraft and of course, murder. Ritualistic killings that are chilling in detail. Eve has to clear a deceased colleague which puts her at odds with Feeney, her mentor. Their big blow up scene left me in tears. Pain and anger are horrible feelings that evoke even more horrible responses. Guilt eats at Eve, to her very soul. She has to investigate a colleague, murders and fear for her very life. People are falsely accused and reputations left in tatters. The bad guys in this story are very bad and crazed. With the help of her usual cohorts she cracks this case where nothing is as it seems.

As usual, J.D Robb spins a great mystery and the ever growing love of Roarke for Eve. He is a great romantic lead male. I’ve already started the next book and look forward to the latest mystery unfolding before me.

I have never read a f/f romance before this one, though I’ve read one f/f/m story.  I liked the set up for this story and it turned out to be a good read.  I’ll definitely read more f/f romance!
 
Rachel, a police officer, made a decision (before the story starts) that has left her estranged from the rest of the police force.  She feels very alone.  And when she’s assigned to lead the new mounted division, she knows it’s not a compliment.  She thinks she’s being set up to fail.  She ends up asking a woman she knew in college, Callan, to help her train the other mounted police squad officers.  Callan is about as far from a lowly police officer as you can get.  She’s a polo star from a family with a lot of money.  She doesn’t really have time to help Rachel, but she’s interested enough in Rachel to make the time.
 
Into this reunion, the author mixes a mystery and some suspense.  It appears that someone really doesn’t want Rachel to succeed.  But who is it?  And why?  I enjoyed the mystery and thought it was well written.
