“It’s no wonder why Robb can manage 40 books easily in a series. With such strong characters and even tighter writing, I suspect the In Death series will remain a strong contender in the genre.” ~ Under the Covers
OBSESSION IN DEATH hits the fabulous fortieth installment in the still strong Romantic Suspense series. J.D. Robb has made Eve Dallas into a celebrity. She’s well-known and respected for her work, but also for her status and marriage to hubby, Roarke. With this brings on a lot of attention, both the good and the bad kind. And unfortunately, someone is killing people off whom they believe have done Eve wrong in some way.
Killing her enemies isn’t the best way to become Eve’s friend, but it is a good way of getting her to notice you. With this strange obsession to bring justice and be Eve’s best friend, this killer becomes one of my most favorite cases in the series.
OBSESSION IN DEATH possesses everything I’ve come to love about this series. Robb infuses the book with humor, suspense, action and that perfect lead up to the climax involving all our favorite characters. There was never a dull moment in this book. I found myself sneaking in pages whenever I could, laughing at the easy banter Peabody and Eve have.
One other thing I have to note is Dr. Mira’s analysis in this book. Mira has been a solid friend and confidant for Eve, but not only does she help Eve clear her mind and stay on track, but she also offers such great information on the suspects. I think one of the key things about Robb’s writing, and how she is able to write 40 books in a series successfully, is that the characters are all very well rounded and multidimensional. In Mira’s analysis of this book’s killer, you get a peak into how Robb’s mind works, how she breaks down a character’s personality and how deep a character analysis she goes into. By the time we get the book, the direction is strong in each scene.
It’s no wonder why Robb can manage 40 books easily in a series. With such strong characters and even tighter writing, I suspect the In Death series will remain a strong contender in the genre.

What did you think of our review?
Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
