They celebrate their one-year anniversary in Reunion in Death, in July Eve's relationship with Roarke is central to the series and her character (see below). Just Roarke, as far as I know. Big money there. Kind of guy that touches shit and turns it into gold bricks. Roarke's first impression of Eve During their first meeting .
Survivor in Death, because of 9-year-old Nixie Swisher. Many In Death books later, I can still picture the little girl hiding in the dark while friend and family were killed. She only wanted a cold, orange fizzy, a forbidden one that ultimately saved her life. Nixie was tough, smart and very brave. Her brief presence changed the dynamics between Eve, Roarke and even Summerset for the better while opening windows into their past.
I love any time Eve and Roarke get in a fight because the making-up is so sigh-worthy!
Eve and Roarke – Book Binge
The killer in this book is creepy, too, and the cherry on the sundae is that Eve gets to punch out her beautiful but treacherous nemesis. I love how Eve rises above her personal demons and gets her man, and then some. I adore the way he takes care of Eve and buys her cool clothes.
The secondary characters also get top billing in my mind, with Peabody being my fav. Like Shakespeare, she writes far too voluminously for any one human, and every darn thing she writes has polish and her unique voice. Two things I love about her In Death series: The first time I read them was before I became an author, so reading them now with some knowledge about storytelling is like a master class in character development and series development.
Roarke is by far my favorite book boyfriend and Eve is the friend I wish I had. It was the first book I read in the series, long before I had my iPad.
My first intro to her and what a hoot! But it is Nixie Swisher who stayed with me all this time. I originally bought the book in print but just bought it in digital so I can take it everywhere with me.
Taking the concept of dating and love connections and weaving it into a mystery where Eve has to look at her own feelings about the past, childhood horrors, and interwoven with the stress of Christmas and her great love with Roarke was pure magic. From the first page to the last, this book is the ultimate page-turner and even ends with the best gift of all … love. Immortal in Death, since Eve and Roarke are planning to get married.
Roarke is a fantasy lover: Throw in a quirky, colorful supporting cast, a slightly futuristic New York City setting, and a murder solved in every book, and you have the brilliant winning formula of J.
Wolfe, author of the Nickie Savage Series I have to be honest.
Way to go, Nora! Clay and Susan Griffith, authors of the Vampire Empire series What I love most about the In Death series is the fact that it shows a healthy couple relationship over an extended series.
Rarely does it resort to soap opera tactics to separate them and then get them back together. Sure, they have opposing viewpoints but through conversation and snarky banter they work through it.
He said fate had decided to throw a curve into their paths. May 12, - The first time Eve tells Roarke she loved him. June 3, - Roarke said, "I want you to marry me. It's more than an objective, observational sort of thing. You do what you do, how you do it for them. You do it for Deena and all the others who've had their lives stolen. It's more than standing for the dead, which is vicious enough to bear. But you walk with them through it. With all I've done in all my life, I don't know if I'd have the stomach to do what you do every day.
I expect I'll wonder that a thousand times in a thousand ways through our life together. But tonight, I know.

I don't have the words, no clever phrases or lofty philosophy. Naked in Death c. Roarke thought now that she'd closed her case, he could talk her into taking a couple of days off. He had an island in the West Indies he thought she'd enjoy.
Eve and Roarke
May 3-June 3, Eve had spent three dazzling days with Roarke on his island where she recovered from a bullet wound and exhaustion after Naked in Death. He intended to drag her away for at least a couple of days to the tropics as soon as their schedules allowed.
It occurred to him that the resort could use another personal visit and that his wife could use a vacation. He made a mental note to work it in around their schedules. Sun, sand, and sex; she was nearly ready to suggest it. Another week or two maybe, she decided. Roarke wanted time away with Eve, away from work.
Not just one of the quick forty-eight-hour jaunts, but real time, intimate time. Roarke suggested they take some personal time, a few days of sun. Eve suggestion some quiet time; a long weekend — they negotiated to four days off, three more next month. They had just returned from a two week vacation; one week at the villa in Mexico, the second on a private island.

Why don't you mark down January second, then. Twice they'd put off tentative plans to take a couple of days in the tropics. Mavis said you and Roarke took a few days at the beach. Eve recommended that they take a few days off together in July, for their anniversary. Eve said one week, Roarke said four, and they compromised on two and a half.
Roarke has looked into buying a small villa in the Caymans a trip would take less than an hour. The villa is small enough to serve as a nice impulse holiday spot for them, and roomy enough to allow them to travel down with a few friends.
