Today's challenge is:
Anything Goes in the "readers choice list"
Lieutenant Eve Dallas has plenty to be grateful for this season. Hosting Roarke’s big Irish family for the holiday may be challenging, but it’s a joyful improvement on her own dark childhood.

Other couples aren’t as lucky as Eve and Roarke. The Reinholds, for example, are lying in their home stabbed and bludgeoned almost beyond recognition. Those who knew them are stunned—and heartbroken by the evidence that they were murdered by their own son. Twenty-six-year-old Jerry hadn’t made a great impression on the bosses who fired him or the girlfriend who dumped him—but they didn’t think he was capable of this.

Turns out Jerry is not only capable of brutality but taking a liking to it. With the money he’s stolen from his parents and a long list of grievances, he intends to finally make his mark on the world. Eve and her team already know the who, how, and why of this murder. What they need to pinpoint is where Jerry’s going to strike next.
Since I finally caught up on this series I figure it's about time I start reviewing them before I forget what the books are about. You all know how much I love Eve and Roarke and all the other characters in the In Death series. I'm almost sad that I'm caught up. I liked reading them. 

It's Thanksgiving time and Eve has of course a murder to solve. The holidays don't stand in the way of death. 

I really enjoyed this one. That sounds horrible since so many good people died in this book but you understand what I'm saying. Right off the bat, you hate Jerry. He's a selfish, spoiled brat that feels everything should be handed to him. Of course when it's not what does he do? Kills!

For so much of this book, I kept wanting to rush it because that's how much I hated him. I didn't want anyone else to die. 

Like most of the In Death books, there is a great murder mystery but it's also about the main cast of characters and how they are doing and interacting with each other. It's one of the things I love most about her books. You get to visit Nixie from a prior book and it's going to crush your heart to read what she's thankful for. I was also happy to visit Roarke's family. It's always nice when they can get together. 

As a whole another wonderful story from Robb. As I've mentioned before you really should read this series in order. It shows the growth of the characters and as you get more and more of their back story you also learn more about them. Not to worry once you start you won't mind reading them all. Any of you read her?

Come back on February 3rd "Trivia Thursday"
