Review- Brotherhood In Death

Screenshot (7237)What the hell happened here?  Was J D Robb/Nora Roberts replaced by a podperson?  Her characters in this book sure were. I didn’t recognize these people.

If this hadn’t been an Eve Dallas book it would have been a 2.5-3 star book. A week after I read it I couldn’t recall what was about. It wasn’t a bad book  BUT   it wasn’t a book that readers expect from Robb.

The snap of the dialogue, the camaraderie between Eve and her fellow officers, the chemistry between Eve and Roarke- all MIA. Actually Roarke was just MIA, must’ve been a droid replacing him.

Just pass this one by and hope that Robb decides to take this series in hand and make it the success it used to be.


Review-The Widow and the Will

Screenshot (7233)What can I say about this book? Not a lot. It is a competently crafted book that didn’t do a thing for me. Two brothers, two sisters, and some obvious villains. It wasn’t a hardship to read it to the end but it didn’t inspire me to pick up another of Thomas-Like’s books. For me there wasn’t a lot of suspense, physical chemistry, or sparkling dialogue. The widow was a bit too weepy for my taste and everyone was rather- tepid, even the bad guys. This book will work very well for a certain group of readers that doesn’t include me.
