Interested in joining the Challenge? Anyone is welcome to join in at any time of the year at wherever in the series you currently are. See the sign up post HERE and join the fun!

It's that time again to share which In Death books we've read this month. I'm in the middle of reading Origin In Death [Book #22] and was so close to finishing it tonight while it was still November, but a girl scout meeting with my youngest and precalc homework with my eldest took priority over reading so that's not happening. How about you? Did you read an In Death book this month?

Link up any In Death posts you made this month here. If you made a post on your blog, whether it be a review or commentary, please grab the link to your post and enter in the Mr. Linky below along with your name so we can find each other's latest In Death posts easily. You can also just use the link to your goodreads or other virtual bookshelf as well.

... not this month.

It's Thanksgiving during the time frame of Origin in Death and Eve and Roarke will be hosting their first "familial" holiday dinner in their home. At the point I'm up to in the book, Eve and Roarke have been fumbling over how to actually carry out such an foreign feat--the guest list, what to serve, etc..  It's actually quite charming how awkward and clumsy they are when they discuss possible plans. So I was imagining guests arriving at their home for Thanksgiving dinner and wondered what people would possibly bring?

What would you bring to Thanksgiving dinner at Eve and Roarke's?

I would bring homemade pumpkin pie with a crust made from real butter and the filling from fresh pumpkin puree, sweetened with pure Canadian maple syrup. I would hope that my gesture of making something from scratch in the age of the AutoChef would show the depth of my thankfulness for being invited to their home and included in their holiday dinner.


  1. I was busy this month. I finished both Visions & Survivor.
    I'm currently reading Origin. It's not my favorite. It's a shame but, I think it may be because I LOVED survivor.
    I'd bring our family's cranberry salad. Eve would love it because it's sweet & Roarke would let her eat it because it's healthy - sort of.

  2. Regina, the same happened to me! Honestly, I haven't re-read Origin even once, while I can't count how many times I've re-read Survivor (and I know I've re-read all the other In Death books at least a couple of times)

    Christine, if I had to take something edible to Thanksgiving at Eve and Roarke's, it would be my flan (death by sugar rush, as I call it fondly). Personally, following Peabody's fine tradition, I would rather knit something for both of them--and Summerset!

  3. Gina, good for you for reading TWO In Death books in November. Very impressive. They were two awesome ones, too.

    I am struggling with Origin, too. Not that it's bad or anything, but it just doesn't have nearly as much spark as the others. In either the personal or crime parts.

    LOL! You're right about the cranberry salad and Eve and Roarke! : )

    azteclady, how interesting that you've got the same vibe as Gina and I regarding Origin. I guess it just isn't an exciting one.

    The knitted gift idea is great. I think both Eve and Roarke would by humbled by anything handcrafted and gifted from the heart. I love that about them.
