I do enjoy this series in audiobook form listening to Rourke's Irish brogue. Eve is investigating a double homicide of engaged couple who work at an investment company while going to Lamaze classes for her friend Mavis. Mavis has befriended a woman who is alone at the classes who has gone missing. She enlists Eve's help in finding Tandy even though Eve tries to tell her that missing persons isn't her area but Mavis, nine months and emotional, insists and Eve can't bear to see her friend so upset. With the help of her team they clear up the cases just in time for Mavis to go into labor and rush her to the "birthing center" in a comical delivery. ( )

A prestigious accounting firm is at the heart of a double murder investigation as Lt. Eve Dallas searches the deals of some of the richest and the most secretive citizens. Eve soon finds that the murders are tied to something much worse than money laundering. Some very nice surprises are in store for the reader. ( )

Aww, what an ending! Mavis brought tears to my eyes :) so funny and sweet. ( )

Book number 23 in the IN Death Series. A quick read/listen, not much substance but easy enough to listen to. She could go a little lighter on the sex scenes. (Mavis having a baby) ( )

Continuing in my quest to catch up on the J.D. Robb/Eve Dallas series of books, this one was cool. Two young accountants - a couple with the future ahead of them - are murdered. Dallas does what she always does - sets out to find who and why. And the why is where it gets interesting.

In the meantime, Mavis is about to pop, so you get to watch Dallas and Roarke get all freaked out about the birthing classes and then try to deal with their fear of becoming parents because they had such lousy childhoods. Dallas is "planning" the baby shower. Hahaha... yeah, that part alone was worth the price of admission.

All in all, very good book. ( )

Book description
2060 in New York City. Lieutenant Eve Dallas has a grisly double homicide to solve when two young lovers-both employees of the same prestigious accounting firm-are brutally killed on the same night. It doesn't leave Eve a lot of leftover time to put together a baby shower for her buddy Mavis Freestone, but that's supposedly what friends are for.

Now Mavis needs another favor. Tandy Willowby, one of the moms-to-be in Mavis's birthing class, didn't show up for the shower. A recent emigrant from London, Tandy has few friends in New York, and no family-and she was really looking forward to the party. And when Eve enters Tandy's apartment and finds a gift for Mavis's shower wrapped and ready on the table-and a packed bag for the hospital still on the floor next to it-tingling runs up and down her spine.

Normally, such a case would be turned over to Missing Persons. But Mavis wants no one else on the job but Eve-and Eve can't say no. She'll have to track Tandy down while simultaneously unearthing the deals and double-crosses hidden in the files of some of the city's richest and most secretive citizens, in a race against this particularly vicious killer. Luckily, her multimillionaire husband Roarke's expertise comes in handy with the number crunching. But as he mines the crucial data that will break the case wide open, Eve faces an all too real danger in the world of flesh and blood.
