Review: Celebrity in Death by J. D. Robb

Lieutenant Eve Dallas is no party girl, but she’s managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity-packed bash celebrating The Icove Agenda, a film based on one of her famous cases. It’s a little spooky seeing the actress playing her, who looks as though she could be her long-lost twin. Not as unsettling, though, as seeing the actress who plays Peabody—drowned in the lap pool on the roof of the director’s luxury building.

Talented but rude and widely disliked, K.T. Harris made an embarrassing scene during dinner. Now she’s at the center of a crime scene—and Eve is more than ready to get out of her high heels and strap on her holster to step into the role she was born to play: cop.
I have been really enjoying getting caught up on my J. D. Robb's. I used to love really them but got behind and for a while just kept on pushing them to the side. 

Now that I have been back to them I try to do read at least one book a month or more. Up this time is Celebrity in Death. I really enjoyed this one. It's a little different. Usually, we get into the murder pretty much right away but with this one, you kind has a little bit of storyline then when we are lulled into think this is going to be totally different...bam! 

We have a murder!

What is great about this book is the fact that the murder is tied to the movie that's based on the book written about Eve and Icove case. You start to get into the people that are in the movie when the murder happens. I have to admit that I knew who was going to murdered only because I thought that if someone was going to meet their maker it would have been them. 

I really enjoyed this one. It was slightly different than most of her murders maybe because of Eve and Peabody having to deal with people that are acting their lives. This is a perfect addition to the In Death series. I'm guessing I'll have to read another one soon. 

Any of you reading this series? 


  1. What a great review. I am going to be starting this series really soon and I hope I love it like you have. But there are so many books, its kinda overwhelming.

    1. It really is. I was only 20 behind and thought I was too much. Make sure to read them in order so you can see the growth of the characters. I hope you'll enjoy them.
