    I’m still looking for Vengeance. By the time I manage to find it (I don’t want to buy them), she’ll be doing Geriatric in Death.

    LOL Shannon!

    I’ve so got to start this series.

    Nice Shan 😉 Only you.

    Yes, BJ, you really do. It’s a fun series and the fact that there are so many books and so much story line only makes it better!

    Angie, I’m with you on this series. If I ever were to go ‘weird’ – it would be with JD Robb. I tried her years ago when I had 3 of her books and couldn’t get into them at all and traded them in. Then after reading about the series so many times once I started visiting message boards I decided to give it another try and I’ve adored them ever since. Like you, I can’t imagine ever getting tired of them either. Since she switched to HC though I’ve had to wait (don’t want to start collecting HC half way through) I have Origin on hold at the library and when I checked yesterday, I’m still 69’th on the list. Auuggghhh. And like you said, anyone wanting to try them really should start with Naked in Death. I think that’s where I made my mistake the first time. The first one I tried was in the middle and I just couldn’t warm up to Eve. You have to get to know her from the beginning to truly appreciate her.

    My grade: A (after all that gushing, did you expect anything less?)

    lol it could have been A++++++

    I think the library has the books in it’s ebook collection – I might check them out.

    I bought Vengeance today and it’s all your fault. I didn’t want to buy them because then I feel a need to buy all of them, and who has the shelf space for Nora? They didn’t have it used, but they had a new copy, so I broke down and got it.

    Now I’ll only be like 183 books behind. *eye roll*

    Guess what my library doesn’t have! Yup. Holiday.

    Angie I totaly agree with what you say about the series.
    I’m glad I started it so late though, that way I don’t have to wait for the next book to come out.

    BJ if you do start this series be prepared not to read anything else for awhile *g*

    Angie, did you know that her ‘In Death’ series has been optioned by Fox 2000 for Mel Gibson and Bruce Davey to make a full lenth movie?

    I just finished this one and loved it. I recently discovered the audio versions, and I love the narrator so much that I’m going to listen to them all from now on. And maybe go back to the beginning and listen to the earlier ones when I make it through the rest of the series. Which will be a sad, sad day.

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
