I love her pissing matches across the board! Lol! <3
She does know how to keep the machines working. One good hit should do it. 😁
I love how she is still avoiding vending machines. I loved when the machine spouted all this stuff including a detectives name and she was ready to snarl until she could get away without paying. Classic
Fighting with the vending machines sets Eve up for the day. I love her snarky comments to them 😀 x
She sure has problems with those machines.
I am waiting for her fight with the candy thief. This is going to be epic.
I love her interactions with inanimate objects, like vending machines. Especially the soda machine!
When she fights with the vending machines, I think it pumps her up. Then she just says that they are always breading down on her.
Eve's battles with vending machines and sparring droids are a healthy outlet for her stress!
I just love the In Death series! It’s time for another reread from the beginning! I can’t wait until #50 comes out!
I’m with Eve too. Every time I try and get a canned soft drink from a local vending machine it gets stuck. I can hear it fall but it hangs about half way. Last time, I ordered a second can thinking it would knock the first one free...nope. It just took my money and kept both drinks. 😂😂😂
Eve loves a good fight, verbally and physically. Lol
Cursing doormen, putting the fear of Eve into witnesses, arguing with inanimate objects, a few of Eve's little pleasures
Sometimes I think Eve is not entirely wrong about sentient machines.
Eve cracks me up when she gets in a fight with the vending machines.
I am with Eve on these EVIL vending machines. I punch for a Pepsi and the stupid machine gives me a DIET GREEN TEA. WTFH!!!!!. My Vent..
Not too many people or things can scare Eve! Tina and vending machines can do it!!!😅
machines have a mind of their own but I love Eve's attitude for them I feel the same
Machines have a mind of their own, made specifically to annoy us humans.
I love Eve’s vending machine battles.
I hate vending machines! So I'm with eve!!
I love those pissing matches!
Eve hates vending machines, mistrusts computers and routinely threatens mechanical objects.
I get such a kick out of her love/hate relationship with technology..
I have to ask, JD Robb / Laura, does JD/Nora get freaked out when her predictions of the future from In Death start coming true? The first self-driving cars, what seems to be the beginning of "urban wars," and so much more.
In which In Death book does Mavis give birth please.
Does anyone have a list of the books that involve visits with Roarke’s family?
This building was one of the ones I could pick out when I was up in the Empire State Building. I kept trying to find places that had been mentioned in any of the books. I just wish I'd had longer <3 xx
I'd love an auto chef, lip dye, & other make-up that stays put. May I have Trina as my next door neighbor too please! LOL! Oh, oh, oh a domestic house droid!
My dad had an office and a storage unit on the 2nd floor in the 60’s. Loved to visit especially as part was in the pointed end. An old friend made an appearance in my favorite series. Thanks ❤️
Inviting myself into Eve and Roarke’s world is my favorite guilty pleasure - no calories, no hangover, just intelligent dialogue, imaginary extravagance and fun with justice. 😂 I love this series!
Love this building. So unique. And just says New York! ❤️
Right now I’m reading “Apprentice in Death” where Eve has just found out that Roarke bought the most famous ice cream shop in NY and it is in Eve’s name.....
I visited New York 2 years ago & the Flatiron is my favourite building! 😃😃
One of the best buildings in NY.
Eve may never be comfortable but Roarke seems to take it in stride like he was to the manor born
Eve so hates that Roarke ows the world. But it has come in handy a few times
Eve learning about the ice cream place was the best
It is a beautiful building. I wish they would clean them up like they are starting to do in paris, france.
There is a corner building in Chattanooga similar to that one.
The Flatiron is one of my favorites. I need to be adopted!
It’s one of my favorite buildings in my favorite city.
Love Eve and Roarke. Can’t wait for Feb 4th.
Just finished reading this for the second time. I am going through them all from the beginning again. Adore Roarke and Eve.
His wealth confuses her so much!
Eve will never get used to it!!!😂
Poor Eve the world of Roarke is very large
Which is worse? Owning part of the Flatiron building or that Nebraska farm???
We also have a Flatiron Building in Ft. Worth, TX.
Yes! Took my daughter last summer and had a great time seeing a few Broadway shows. She dearly wants to go to to college there so visiting again next month to check out a school (and let her see NYC in cooler temps). 🗽❤
I've never been and never had the desire to go, however, I have changed my mind. All because of Nora. Or J.D. Robb. Or Eve. I'd really like to see some of the places that have been mentioned throughout the books
1968 went with mother to visit friends. 1st time on airplane. 1st time in NY city. Dead of winter. Went to Empire State bldg, library & of course my Mom had to go to Macy's...lol. Was never so cold in my life. Buildings so tall, I don't think the sun could get thru! Would still love to go back (when it's warm). So much more to see and do. On my bucket list...lol.
Never been, and with health issues I probably won’t go. I love hearing about the city through Eve’s eye. Btw, ordered the book yesterday. I have them all so far. Thanks for inviting me into her world.
I live there. Has its good and bad aspects. Like any place in the world.
I would love to visit Ireland if I could ever afford to. Born and raised Bronx, N.Y.
I’ve been twice and loved it both times. I want to go back so badly. Was there in late summer and again at Christmas time. Would like to see in the spring and fall.
I think the people get a bad rap. Everyone so so nice.
I’ve visited NYC over the past 45 years and I love it! I see something every time I go. I’m usually there for a Yankee game, but have seen museums, Central Park, plays. It’s the greatest city in the world!
Nora is so ahead of her time. Recently the grocery stores are carrying a large variety of plant based meat substitute. Today on the news they showed scientists who can now make coffee without beans. I need a Roarke of my own because I will not live without my real coffee.
Took my mother for her birthday in the 90’s. Had a good time.
I’ve never been, but a friend spent a week there last year and I got to see the sights through her eyes. Would love to see the Rockettes perform and some Broadway shows.
I am from NYC, and a retired NYPD from Brooklyn south 60th precinct. I miss my hometown
I will never forget the kindness of so many New York people when I fell over and had to have a hip replacement. Didn’t get to see the museums and art galleries but still have good memories of my trip to USA
I live in Connecticut so NYC is an easy day trip by train. New York is Eve’s place. She understands it.
Was just there two days before Christmas for my bachelorette party! Ate all the amazing food and watched as many shows as we could, plus the Rockettes. It was the warmest its ever been in at Christmas- I’ve gone up several years around that time and usually freeze.
Didn’t expect to like it, but I loved it. However, I was only there three days, and didn’t see everything.
I've been to New York 4 times. The last time I flew there to meet friends, I was a day earlier than the rest of the group and so decided to go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art by myself. It was a beautiful warm April day and after seeing many of the wonders inside the Met,, I spent time sitting on the steps enjoying the Doo Wop group singing on the sidewalk. A wonderful trip that ended with a performance at the Metropolitan Opera. I really ❤️ New York!
I visited the big 🍎 seven years ago and loved it. Very keen to return. Hopefully 2020 will be the year!
Still my favorite city! Love Broadway!
Lived there until 10 years ago, miss it every day🥰
I visited friends Christmas 1989. It was beautiful. Saw Rockefeller center, the Rockettes, the beautiful xmas displays in the department store windows and even saw chestnuts roasting on an open fire. There is a different energy there Christmas time.
Been to New York many times with a friend who grew up there. Loved the sights and Broadway and all, and would go back in a heartbeat, but only to visit. I am truly a southern girl at heart!
Yes loved my visits there. Looking forward to Golden now.
As I‘m not in love with noise and people in general I think I wouldn’t enjoy New York.
I‘m definitely more the Ireland type 🥰😅
We lived on the Upper East Side (72nd Street and 1st Avenue) for two years. I loved the Manhattan vibe.
I really liked how in the beginning Peabody kinda thought Dallas was cold because she didn't emote the way Peabody did and got a few tough lessons about the l.t. along the way.
In my experience .. no one and nothing can transport me to another time or place / make me feel what the people of the story are feeling ... as much as MY READING .. NORAS OR JD ROBS words on the printed page that I hold in my hands !!!!!!! Even if they are 87 year old hands and shake ..... and I do not skip over the love scenes !!!
Peabody deserves to brag, making detective and all. She makes a great partner for Eve...contrast serious to funny. delightful combination.❤️💙💛💚
I love all the characters in the In Death series.
In fact, that's what hooked me. She's an excellent reader!
The relationship between Eve and Peabody is so special! I love Peabody’s New-Age wisdom. It confuses Eve to no end...
Re-listening to the series, and just met Peabody in Glory in Death. So excited for all the shenanigans to come! So many great characters to rediscover.
Well deserved bragging rights Peabody. She still manages to drop it into the conversation now and again 😉 x
Peabody deserve her detective sheald. She and Eve are good together
She’s justifiably proud of her well earned rank (and Eve is too) so the month will work for both.
Sometimes when I am reading an ID book, Ii swear can hear these conversations. I don't see them clearly yet. Just a pure pleasure to read.
Is this the case that gets her a gold shield? I haven’t read them all yet. There is just to many Nora books to read and not enough time to read them, but I will get there. 😉
Love it. Can't wait for my package to get here in February. My daughter in law bought the next book and the necklace for me for Christmas. 😀
re-reading the entire series, love this series and how well written it is.
Gotta love Shebody, noisy boots to the ground, tummy rumbling, TMI, ready to rock the case. 😎
Peabody and Eve. I love their conversations. Make me laugh.
The relationship between Eve and Peabody is the best definition of a partnership - and friendship.
Awwww. Eve loves her and really understands her
She so earned her detective badge and love her and Eve’s relationship x
Eve saw something in Peabody and nurtured it and not only did they become partners they became friends. Something that always astounds Eve.
Peabody was so happy, and she earned and deserved it
Peabody is an excellent partner to Dallas and then a good friend
love that Eve excepts Peabody for who she is
I love Peabody and her terrific relationship with Eve! All the characters are so well developed.
Oh how I love that Peabody, There are times I swear I am sitting in their car listening to their carrying on.
