Reading Challenge for 2023

When Lieutenant Eve Dallas examines a body in a downtown Manhattan alleyway, the victim’s injuries are so extensive that she almost misses the clue. Carved into the skin is the shape of a heart—and initials inside reading E and D . . .

Ella-Loo and her boyfriend, Darryl, had been separated while Darryl was a guest of the state of Oklahoma, and now that his sentence has been served they don’t ever intend to part again. Ella-Loo’s got dreams. And Darryl believes there are better ways to achieve your dreams than working for them. So they hit the road, and when their car breaks down in Arkansas, they make plans to take someone else’s. Then things get messy and they wind up killing someone—an experience that stokes a fierce, wild desire in Ella-Loo. A desire for Darryl. And a desire to kill again.

As they cross state lines on their way to New York to find the life they think they deserve, they will leave a trail of evil behind them. But now they’ve landed in the jurisdiction of Lieutenant Dallas and her team at the New York Police and Security Department. And with her husband, Roarke, at her side, she has every intention of hunting them down and giving them what they truly deserve . . .
With each book of Robb's, you find something to love about Eve, Roarke and the other officers that work with them. I think it's one of the reasons I love her books so much. The In Death stories are full of great characters, and a wonderful mystery. 

Devoted in Death is a wonderful balance between Eve and her officers working the case and their interactions with each other. I felt like both Eve and Peabody became closer in this story. Often, I enjoy their conversations but this time they were even better. 

You'll enjoy how much you got to know they victims within the story. The way they are written they really seem real You won't be able to not feel bad for them. Sadly, their killers and horrible people who think they will never be caught and don't really care about others. 

The story is well done and fast paced. You'll find yourself being absorbed into the story and become invested with the victims' getting justices. As a whole this is story, you'll love. Like I've mentioned before each story has a beginning and an end, so you don't necessarily need to read them in order, but I think they are much better if you do so. See the growth of each character as each story progresses are what makes them so good. You will soon feel like you are there with them.
