4 stars

Indulgence in Death provides something of a divergence from the typical whodunnit formula, something that has only been done once or twice before in the series, but it provides a nice breath of fresh air this time around. And despite the shakeup, there was still no shortage of Eve and the gang crime solving and butt kicking, so it’s still a solid installment overall.

But once again, the character relationships are what make each story memorable and what leaves me eager to pick up the next installment (even at the risk of running out of books before the next release). It’s great to see Eve and Roarke continue to both work together and be in marital and social situations together, the latter of which, of course leads to many laughs on my part.

Speaking of laughs, this one continued the trend from the last book of having great dirty jokes. A particularly memorable exchange revolving around the double meaning of the word “cock” had me rolling.

This installment is another great one for the series, with all the elements that make it great out in full force.
