When the newly promoted captain of the NYPSD and his wife
return a day early from their vacation, they were looking
forward to spending time with their bright and vivacious
sixteen-year-old daughter who had stayed behind.
Not even their worst nightmares could have prepared them for
the crime scene that awaited them instead. Brutally murdered
in her bedroom, Deena's body showed signs of trauma that
horrified even the toughest of cops; including our own
Lieutenant Eve Dallas, who was specifically requested by the
captain to investigate.
When the evidence starts to pile up, Dallas and her team
think they are about to arrest their perpetrator; little do
they know yet that someone has gone to great lengths to
tease and taunt them by using a variety of identities.
Overconfidence can lead to careless mistakes. But for
Dallas, one mistake might be all she needs to bring justice.

I TRY not to buy for myself, but I always buy myself a Christmas and Birthday present. I feel guilty if I splurge on myself at this time of year. And there are LOTS of books I'm looking forward to!!

My daughter reminded me that the last person I would spend money on is myself - unless it is a book! :>)

The only rule I have for the Holidays is, I buy for no one(in the extended family) over the age of eighteen. Of course, that does not include my son and his wife. I always buy books for me for my birthay and Christmas(they are only a week apart).I always pray that Christine Feehen, Iris Johansen, Sherilyn Kenyon and Julie Garwood have new books out.
(Patsy Hagen 3:59pm October 28, 2009)
I treat myself at birthdays & Christmas & yes, books always top the list.
(Mary Preston 4:42pm October 28, 2009)
Number one rule: make a list
Number two rule: don't buy something if you've made a list
Number three rule: don't give the same list to all your friends
That covers a lot.
I'm hoping to find JD Robb's book soon and also Linda Howard's new release due nov 10th Ice

I enjoy long running series, two of my favorites are Stephanie Plum and The Dark-Hunter series. I look forward to the latest releases.
(Teresa Warner 2:08pm November 8, 2009)
I bought this book as an ebook. I got it for 9.99. I thought it was a great deal.
If it had been more I might not have bought it yet.
(Lisa Holstein 3:37pm November 8, 2009)
I do enjoy long running series. One of my favorites is Stephanie Laurens' Cynster series. Julia Quinn's Bridgerton series is also a favorite.
(Jane Cheung 4:07pm November 8, 2009)
I have read all her in death books and can't wait for this one. My library does not even have this one but then they are in the process of almost finishing building a new library. I have enough books that I am content to wait for this one. I have Dan Brown's latest on reserve and I can pick it up monday.
Yes, I love series books like Robyn Carr and Suzanne Brockmann.
(Joyce Mandle 4:10pm November 8, 2009)
I do enjoy long running series so long as the writing and stories stay fresh. There have been instances when I have followed a series and a story has seemed somewhat like a previous installment. That is where my interest wanes.
(G. Bisbjerg 4:13pm November 8, 2009)
I love long running series. Getting to visite old friends and see how they are faring is alwasys loads of fun.
(Cindy Olp 4:43pm November 8, 2009)
Yes, I like long running series! Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove series, Robyn Carr the Virgin River books & Suzanne Brockmann are authors that come to mind with long running series I love! For some reason I tend to get hooked on series or connected books.
Though I love Nora I do not read J.D. Robb, I read the first two books a long time ago but they just didn't work for me. That was a disappointment. Maybe I should try again.
(Donna McClure 4:52pm November 8, 2009)
I enjoy series, seeing how the characters change and grow and I still enjoy Dallas from the in death series; in fact I just bought the book today and have started reading it. Yes some of the books can be a little less entertaining than previous ones but all in all they are always entertaining.
(Diane Sadler 4:58pm November 8, 2009)
I like series in one way but not another because it keeps me from reading new authors sooner. I looked and our district has 35 copies of that book but 126 reserves...wow
(Joy Hoormann 4:59pm November 8, 2009)
I generally like long running series. I have read one or two though that should have ended long ago. They have started to sound the same.
(Julie Scharff 5:18pm November 8, 2009)
I have to agree w/ Joy, there are a lot series I really love (Sue Grafton, JD Robb) but at the same time I like to have time to explore new authors.
(Pam Nolan 5:29pm November 8, 2009)
(Jana Mayfield 6:18pm November 8, 2009)
I love series, but long series I tend to shy from only that I can't stand to wait for each installment of the story.
(Armenia Fox 6:49pm November 8, 2009)
I like long-running series as long as they stay fresh and don't 'jump the shark'. There have been some series I quit on in the past because they had really run their course or I was so behind on the books and wanted to move on to other things. Now I mostly stay away from starting new series.
(Mary Perry 8:39pm November 8, 2009)
I love to read series as you can explore how they connect and came to be.. I have read over 82 of Nora's books and over 6 JD Robb and still looking for more. I try the library first then used book store then online..Keep up the good writing..Now that I am retired I can read more..LOL.. I also like Fern Michales and her Sisterhood series..
(Brenda Hill 9:15pm November 8, 2009)
I do enjoy the long series. The characters become friends. You see how they grow and how their lives change, but, as in real life, friendships end. I have had to adjust my reading habits as have many of my friends.
(Rosemary Krejsa 9:40pm November 8, 2009)
J. D. Robb's In Death Series is one of the very few long series that I still read if I can the second it's released. I bought the ebook and downloaded it immediately! Usually I peter out of long series by book 8 or so but this one has held my interest for many years. In fact, I got my brother and father! hooked on it as well.
(Robin Greene 9:50pm November 8, 2009)
I also love reading series books, but I am terrified that I'll miss one along the way, so I don't like it when they're too long. If it were possible for a person to sign up somewhere so you wouldn't miss them, I'd love that.
(Donna Breitkreuz 12:47pm November 9, 2009)
I adore series...J.D. Robb, Suzanne Brockman, Mariah Stewart, the Dark Hunters, and the Carpathians..I love them all and I do not believe they will go stale.
(Patsy Hagen 1:24am November 9, 2009)
I love series (whether long or semi-short) because I like the interconnected characters but I prefer series that,while interconnected, don't HAVE to be read in order. I agree that sometimes it gets irritating to have to wait for the next book to come out! I get so into the story and then, boom!, I have to wait months for the next one! This is especially irritating to me because I have an awful memory and often forget either to get the next book when it finally does come out or forget what happened before and then need to re-read the earlier books before I can truly get into the new one! While I (of course) keep the entire series fully intending to read them again, it does (like others mentioned) make it difficult to find new authors or make a dent in my TBR list to have go through this at times. LOL Great topic for your blog, as usual Sandi!
(Dawn Detkowski 1:40am November 9, 2009)
This particular series as a
long running seres, yes. I
hope it never ends. I only
started this series about 18
months ago. Once I had the
first 8 books, I starting
reading them in bulk. I made
sure that at each time I
started the series again I had
at least 4 more. Once you
start them you can't put them
down. I love the idea of visiting with old friends and
seeing what everyone has
gotten up to since the last
time I saw them. I don't see
them as characters in a book
but old friends.
(Lisa Richards 3:07am November 9, 2009)
Long running series are always welcome. It's like coming home.
(Mary Preston 3:16am November 9, 2009)
There are certain books series
that are like family, and I
will always follow them as
long as the writing stays
fresh and interesting. If it
gets slow or repetitive, then
I have had to say good-bye to
some of them over the years
because of the writing, while
others I will stay with. Like
The Dragon Riders Series, I
will hopefully always follow.
(Melissa Tackett 6:36am November 9, 2009)
I enjoy series books. It's like having a friend come to visit. I also wait for the 50% off coupon at Borders to get the books - or wait for paperback. Our local library is in financial trouble and when I buy a hardback book I donate it to the library when I am finished reading it.
(Karin Tillotson 8:38am November 9, 2009)
I love series books, Stephanie Plum, Robyn Carr's Virgin River, Catherine Coulter's FBI series,Beverly Barton's Protectors' Series, Stephanie Bond's Body Movers.....this way you can find out what happens to the other characters in the book.
Keeps me coming back for more!
(JoAnn White 10:19am November 9, 2009)
I'm with Qwill, I don't mind long running series as long as it continues to be interesting and fresh.
(Ali Flores 11:17am November 9, 2009)
I love series books and get attached to the characters pretty fast.
(Alyson Widen 12:32pm November 9, 2009)
I've enjoyed Stephanie Laurens Bastion Club series which, while there weren't a lot of books, stretched out over four years. I also enjoyed the Becketts of Romney Marsh which also stretched over many years. The only trouble with long-running series is that by the time I get to the end, I have trouble remembering the details of the earlier books.
(Trudy Miner 6:36pm November 9, 2009)
Holds are down a little at our library,
but I don't think is is so much the
price of the book as much as the fact
that people seem to be really busy.
We are a small library with a small
budget. We get only one copy of a
book. Usually some one will donate a
second copy of the best sellers so the
waiting time is reduced a little.
I like series and will follow them as
long as the characters and the plot
line stay fresh.
(Patricia Barraclough 12:38pm November 10, 2009)

(Josie Roetemeyer 4:49pm November 10, 2009)
I, on the other hand, would like to meet a real person. Someone who is not wearing a mask or playing a part.
(Karin Tillotson 4:50pm November 10, 2009)
I have one - a classic - Mr Darcy: I just want to melt his buttons & dip him in chocolate.
(Mary Preston 4:59pm November 10, 2009)
Zachary Benedict from "Perfect" by Judith McNaught. What a hot character.

(Lisa Beth Darling 6:14pm November 10, 2009)
I don't have a list but found todays post an interesting read!
(Brenda Rupp 7:26pm November 10, 2009)
I do like reading series books and have all of the "In Death" series by Robb. I even started buying HB because I couldn't wait for PB! I am a little disappointed in the new one, "Kindred in Death." However, I'll keep reading them,'cause I do like Eve Dallas and Roark. I got this one from Amazon for $9; otherwise, I'd have tried Half-Price Books in a few weeks.
(Sherry Moran 5:40pm November 11, 2009)
I'd like to meet all the main characters in every piece of fiction I've ever read---or, if we're talking about movies and TV shows, all those I've watched---if the work well and truly moved me. Why? Because if the story, movie, or TV show did its job, it did so largely because of the characters.
(Mary Anne Landers 7:05pm November 11, 2009)
My rule for these holidays is that I can't buy for anyone as my husband is laid off. Anything I may have that I can share with my family such as books I've read that they might like I package up and ship to them.
(Brenda Rupp 9:21pm November 12, 2009)
I like series books
