MPOV: Born In Death

Eve Dallas has a grisly double homicide to solve when two young lovers - both employees of the same prestigious accounting firm - are brutally killed on the same night. It doesn't leave Eve a lot of leftover time to put together a baby shower for her best-friend Mavis, but that's supposedly what friends are for. Now Mavis needs another favour. Tandy Willowby, one of the mothers-to-be in Mavis's birthing class, didn't show up for the shower. Having only recently arrived from London, Tandy has few friends in New York, and no family - and she was really looking forward to the party. And when Eve enters Tandy's apartment and finds a gift for Mavis wrapped and ready on the table - and a packed bag for the hospital still on the floor next to it she realises something is wrong. Normally, such a case would be turned over to Missing Persons. But Mavis asks for Eve's - and she can't say no. She'll have to track Tandy down while simultaneously investigating the deals and double-crosses hidden in the files of some of the city's richest and most secretive citizens, in a race against this particularly vicious killer.

Really enjoyed this installment, funny and with a twist of horror with the impending pregnancies surrounding Eve and Rourke! The way they tried to squirm their way out of baby shower and birthing class as opposed to solving gory, yucky murders! Got me giggling a lot of times wherever I was reading it… sorry people, I’m not crazy, just enjoying my novel ^.^
