Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
This book should not be missed by In Death fans. For a new In Death reader I would suggest starting somewhere else in the series, preferably Naked in Death Book 1. This book is a blend of the search for a murderer of a sleazy personal trainer and the vagaries of Eve and Roarke's Christmas which is more appreciated by those who follow the series.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
I devour In Death books. I am always anxious for the next scene, the next chapter. This was no different.
What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?
Susan Ericksen is Eve Dallas. With the exception of 2 earlier books, every preformance (and there are over 40 stories and multiple recurring characters) imparts a distinct personality to every character. I could not imagine anyone else reading these books.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Feeney's Christmas present for both Eve and Roarke.

Christmas doesn't come around very often in the mid-21st century world of the In Death books--it takes at about 10 books to make a year in this long-running series--but when it arrives, it's always a treat. "Festive In Death" is no exception.
This is an interesting mystery and there are a lot of suspects to interview, so Eve and Peabody get some good grilling time in. But as longtime followers know, the real joy is hearing How Dallas Got Her Christmas Shopping Done, and the description of The Christmas Event at the Roarke mansion--a mere 250 guests, plus spa time with Terrifying Trina and the yummy Leonardo gown that Eve grudgingly slinks into (would that we all had the body to carry off a Leonardo!).
The icing on the cake is Christmas Eve with the family. Summerset and Galahad make appearances, but it's Eve and Roarke's scene. Their gift exchange had me both laughing and reaching for the tissue box. It's why this series just keeps going and going, and we fans keep reading and reading. Here's to lots more holidays to come!

Would you consider the audio edition of Festive in Death to be better than the print version?
As I never bought the print version I could not say .
Who was your favorite character and why?
My favourite is peabody.
Peabody is just such a laugh with her muttered comments but she also has her serious side
Which character – as performed by Susan Ericksen – was your favourite?
Again I have to say peabody .
Susan nailed the character of peabody I felt that she was in the room with us .
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
I do not know as there is a lot you could come up with in this book.
Any additional comments?
I have all of J.D.ROBB IN DEATH SERIES and it is fascinating to see all the characters come together and to life
It is great that you have her books .

So well written, had me flummoxed right until the very last chapter! Brilliant!
I love the regular characters and their personalities. I admire the way that Ms Roberts weaves them seamlessly into the narrative without it seeming contrived.
I will always read the novels in this series. It appeals to me on so many levels!

I love, love, love this series. However, the splicing of content by the performer with and without a head cold, and with different sound quality between the two recordings, kept jarring me out of the story. A pity.
