Four good stories that are worth reading.... 1 avril 2006
Par Deborah Wiley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
I automatically buy all of J.D. Robb's books so this was a no-brainer purchase for me. Robb kickstarts this anthology with "Haunted in Death", another detective story involving Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her husband Roarke. The year is 2060 and Eve is investigating the murder of Radcliff C. Hopkins III at Number Twelve, a building that that reportedly been haunted since the disappearance of Bobbie Bray 85 years ago. Bobbie's skeleton is found near Radcliff's body and the murder weapon, a gun (considered unusual in 2060), is the same for both murders. Eve is very pragmatic and doesn't believe in ghosts despite the cold chill and mysterious voices she hears in Number Twelve. The ending is a bit unusual for a J.D. Robb story but I was not disappointed.

In "Poppy's Coin" by Mary Blayney, a young girl is told a story of a magic coin and true love occurring in 1817. David Lindsay has returned from the war with honor but no money and two children to raise (only one of whom may be his child). His daughter gives him a magic coin and he wishes for prosperous employment. Shortly afterwards, a wealthy widow, Lady Grace Anderson, hires him to be her escort at all the Society events as she doesn't want the hassle of men courting her. The story is a sweet romance with only a tinge of the paranormal.

Ruth Ryan Langan's "The Passenger" explores the mystery behind Spirit Lake with its history of boats and planes disappearing and lights of unknown origin appearing. Grace Marin is a photojournalist who is at Spirit Lake to document the happenings there. Josh Cramer is an adventure junkie whose next journey is a trek through the wilderness, starting at Spirit Lake. While flying to his starting point, he notices a stowaway passenger just before his plane crashes. Grace sees the crash and rescues him. Together, they find true love while experiencing the mysteries at Spirit Lake.

"Mellow Lemon Yellow" by Mary Kay McComas is one of the more unique stories I have read. Charlotte is the stereotypical accountant until her childhood imaginary friend, Mel, resurfaces at her father's viewing. Mel teaches Charlotte how to break out of her monotony and find that spark within her that wants to go scuba diving, wear stylish clothes, and find true love. She finally meets Sam and it's a sweet ending to a story about a woman's personal growth.

Overall, this was a good anthology and definitely worth reading. I'm not sure the title fit the type of stories in the book but all four stories were very enjoyable. Definitely a recommended read!

Just OK - far from the norm for Robb 19 mai 2006
Par L. Moon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
I'm a HUGE Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb fan. I've read all of Robb's In Death books and always look forward to the latest release. Haunted in Death was enjoyable, but left a lot to be desired... where was Summerset and McNab and Feeney? She has built so much character into these characters that a person misses them when they're not there!

The two middle stories were ok but not memorable.

The fourth story - Mellow Lemon Yellow - was the worst story I've ever read. In my opinion, the book is very elementary. Did anyone notice Mary Kay McComas' incorrect use of the word "then"? I counted at least 3 times where she used "then" when she should've used "than". Doesn't anyone check grammar anymore? You'd think a prominent writer would be grammatically correct.

Okay but... 4 avril 2006
Par Atalanta - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
As a huge fan of J.D. Robb, I knew I would buy this book for her story alone. While it was an okay short story, it's not great. In my opinion, both of the other short stories that Robb has done in other anthologies adds something to the overall "mystique" of the In Death series.

I couldn't read the second story (Poppy's Coin). No interest.

Both The Passenger and Mellow Lemon Yellow were interesting reads. Of course, throughout the entire reading of Mellow Lemon Yellow, I kept thinking about the movie "Drop Dead Fred" which explores a similar premise.

Overall, enjoyable and easy reading.

Bumps in the Road 28 avril 2006
Par Terry A. Benedict-Devine - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Since other reviewers have given a summary of each story, I will try to add to what has already been said instead of repeating the storylines.

"Haunted in Death" provides the Eva Dallas fix for all of us J. D. Robb lovers. The somewhat paranormal flair is almost believable seeing that Eve is our doubting Thomas when it comes to the 85 year old ghost of Bobbie Bray and her never-ending battle to uncover the mystery surrounding the death of Radcliff Hopkins. This by far was the best story in the book.

"Poppy's Coin" was a somewhat enjoyable fairy tale story except no other reviewers seemed to pick up on the fact that the storyteller starts out in London on April of 2006 and ends in March 2007. This storytelling was to span a few hours, not a year. Very poor writing and even worse editing. Plus the ending of the narrative and the parallel of the coin confused me. I couldn't understand if the woman to whom the story of David and Grace was being told was married to Jim (?) who she was supposed to meet at the pub in the beginning of the story and at the end of the tale-telling. Was this Jim a goner because of her wish or just what that was all about?????? Can someone help, please?

"The Passenger" was just okay. Nothing to get excited about and all too corny for my taste. The ghost of Spirit Lake turning out to be who she says she is and then actually talking to and relaying bloodlines to Grace Marin and Josh Cramer (our primary characters). This scenario was a little too much even for a paranormal story and the conclusion was the ordinary, child-like, happily-ever-after, totally make-believe ending.

"Mellow Lemon Yellow" was different and amusing and I guess next to Haunted in Death, was my preferred reading. It was a cute idea to drum up this lovable imaginary and quite real friend. Charlotte Gibson was a likeable enough character but I think "Mel" was even more likeable.

All in all, I wouldn't knock myself out to go out and read these stories.

Not unreadable, nothing special 7 août 2006
Par R. Kelly Wagner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Novelettes for the beach, perhaps. These are 4 novelettes (or novellas, I've never really been able to tell the difference) written especially for this collection. Many people will see this book pop up because they've purchased other J.D. Robb books, and if you are someone who is collecting every single bit of the "In Death" series, then I suppose you'll need this one. However, it's not really a very good story in the series. The theme of the book being "paranormal" stories, Robb has to try to fit something spooky into Eve's normally rational and scientific world, and frankly, I don't find that it fits well. The story and the plot itself depend entirely on things that could have happened in 2006 as easily as 2060; the part that's supposed to make it 2060 is that the murder has been done with a gun, and guns are quite rare in 2060, so that the other detectives and the medical examiner's office are not familiar with gunshot wounds. But the entire story could have been written without the paranormal element supposedly being there, or set in any year in the modern era, and would have been almost exactly the same.

The second story in the book is a Regency romance, with a brief modern frame around it, and about the only paranormal element is the "magic coin" upon which our protagonists in the Regency era, and then our protagonist in the modern era, make wishes. Since I like the Regency era, I actually enjoyed this story more than the J.D. Robb story that called my attention to the book; the Regency story is a better representative of its kind than the Robb is of its series. It may be a disappointment to some because the paranormal element is so small; if you are thinking to buy this book because you are specifically interested in paranormal phenomena, you probably won't find enough here to be satisfying.

In short, by having people who usually write in specific subgenres and specific time periods try to add something paranormal to their stories, it lowers the quality of both the period pieces and the paranormal elements.
