Festive in Death (In Death #39) by J.D. Robb

Eve Dallas deals with a homicide—and the holiday season—in the latest from the #1 New York Times bestselling author.

Personal trainer Trey Ziegler was in peak physical condition. If you didn’t count the kitchen knife in his well-toned chest.

Lieutenant Eve Dallas soon discovers a lineup of women who’d been loved and left by the narcissistic gym rat. While Dallas sorts through the list of Ziegler’s enemies, she’s also dealing with her Christmas shopping list—plus the guest list for her and her billionaire husband’s upcoming holiday bash.

Feeling less than festive, Dallas tries to put aside her distaste for the victim and solve the mystery of his death. There are just a few investigating days left before Christmas, and as New Year’s 2061 approaches, this homicide cop is resolved to stop a cold-blooded killer.

My review:

I LOVE this series.  It never gets old.  Eve may be worried that love has mellowed her but the holidays are guaranteed to bring out the cynic that we know and love.  I love that Eve and Roarke are still slap silly in love with each other even as the real world intrudes on their bliss.  Eve and the gang deal with the murder of a disgusting human being and still they fight for him with all the energy and commitment they would give any of their cases. Another case that will keep you guessing and turning page after page.
