REUNION IN DEATH by New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts, writing as J. D. Robb. Eve and Roarke's first anniversary is a reunion that fans will not forget

A beloved old man is poisoned and Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas realizes very quickly the killer is Julianna Dunne who has just been released from prison. Roarke is next in her sights and between Dallas protecting her man who says he doesn't need any protection and Julianna stalking Roarke, this makes for a very edgy novel.

Dallas also confronts her past and the associated demons head-on by visiting Texas. How Dallas deals with the wide open spaces and cows and horses makes for some humourous moments.

In this installment are also the ever loyal Peabody and her boy toy flashy McNab, licensed companion Charles and his new love interest Dr. Louise.

This series never fails to deliver. I especially liked that Peabody got her own first case and had her parents visit at the same time.

Lieutenant Eve Dallas is back from a relaxing holiday and surprisingly isn't swamped with work. With her aide, Peabody, she opens a cold case and hands it over to Peabody to try and solve. This is Peabody's first case and she's surprised and nervous about solving it. She doesn't get much time when a man is murdered in the middle of his birthday party by poisoning his drink. Dallas knows this M.O. and learns that the person responsible was just released from prison and has started killing again. Setting out to find her, once again puts Dallas' husband Roarke in the way.

I used to have a problem with this set of books always having Dallas find who the killer was by herself and in a dangerous situation. It seems that now Robb likes putting Roarke in the danger seat and I'm getting a bit tired of that too. I believe this is the third or forth book where Roarke has been put in danger simply because Dallas is on officer on the case. This is hardly realistic and is a predictive way of Robb adding tension to the book.

That complaint aside, Robb does a great job of capturing the reader's interest. I breezed through this book and enjoyed it, though you'd think that Eve and Roarke would stop having the same old argument again. Peabody's parents came to visit which added some entertainment to the book. Hopefully we see them again some time in the other books in the series.
