Holiday in Death

Book 8 of my 2015 Reading Challenge
read from Jan. 21 - Jan. 28

Holiday in Death by J.D. Robb
book 7 of the In Death series

Summary (via Goodreads)
No one likes to be alone during the holidays. For New York's most posh dating service, Personally Yours, it is the season to bring lonely hearts together. But Lieutenant Eve Dallas, on the trail of a ritualistic serial killer, has made a disturbing discovery: all of the victims have been traced to Personally Yours. As the murders continue, Eve enters into an elite world of people searching for their one true love--and a killer searching for his next victim. A world where the power of love leads men and women into the ultimate act of betrayal...

My Opinion
I think I need to stop reading the summary and just go in cold because yet again, I knew that there would be multiple victims and what the thread connecting them was before I even started. Either those are spoilers and shouldn't be in the summary or they're givens and Eve needs to stop exploring other avenues when the reader already knows they're dead ends.

Other than that, I still like the series and plan to continue with the easy fix of not reading anything about it beforehand.

A Few Quotes from the Book
"She lived with death, worked with it, waded through it, day after day, night after night. In the final weeks of 2058, guns were banned, and medical science had learned how to prolong life to well beyond the century mark.
  And man had yet to stop killing man.
  It was her job to stand for the dead."

"Late, very late, when the tree lights were off and the fire burned low, she lay awake. Was he out there, now? Would her 'link beep, announcing another body, another soul lost because she was too many steps behind?
 Whom did he love now?"
