Waiting on Wednesday: Thankless in Death by J.D. Robb

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases!

I'm a HUGE fan of the In Death series, so it's pretty much a guarantee I'm always going to be looking forward to the next book. That being said, I'm particularly excited about Thankless in Death because we're going to see Roarke's family. The best moments in the series (for me) don't come from the cases, but rather the more intimate moments relating to love and family.

Book Description (from Goodreads):

In the latest suspense thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, the year 2060 is drawing to a close in New York City and loved ones are coming together for Thanksgiving. But sometimes the deepest hatreds seethe within the closest relationships, and blood flows faster than water…

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.

I actually have not read this series yet! I know, I know! *hangs head in shame* I love Nora Roberts, but somehow Naked in Death didn't do it for me. I tried reading it, but I couldn't finish. I really want to pick it up again and start reading this series. I love her books a lot; I think I just need to try again!

Thanks for stopping by Part of that World!! And, by the way, you're awesome for being an NR fan! :)

That must be a heck of a series for you to be waiting on the 37th book! I've had Robb on my list forever but always seem to get sidetracked- sounds like I need to bump her up on the list. Thanks for sharing- and stopping by.
