It's hard to believe that in the many years I've been reading Nora Roberts, it's taken me this long to start the "In Death" series. To be honest it was the fact that the same couple had more than one book that turned me off. I like my romances to be new and different each time. But now that I'm on a mystery series kick, I figured it was time. And I was glad I did - I'll definitely pick up the next book soon.
