Very rarely do I devour books, hurry home to finish them, read them in a day. The last one was probably [b:Fifty Shades of Grey|10818853|Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades, #1)|E.L. James|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1358266215s/10818853.jpg|15732562], before that though, it was [b:And Then There Were None|16299|And Then There Were None|Agatha Christie|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1316131101s/16299.jpg|3038872], so really this entry into the wonderousness of Eve and Roarke, never stood a chance.
An evening at the theatre (Roarkes theatre of course)? What could be nicer? Opening night of [b:The Witness for the Prosecution|2360997|The Witness for the Prosecution|Agatha Christie|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1328015454s/2360997.jpg|10126775]. Roarke delights in watching Eve try to figure the story out, but when it comes to the final act it all goes a bit wrong. A prop knife replaced with a real knife and a murder takes place in front of thousands of witnesses. Including Eve and Roarke.
This case ran a little bit too close to home for Eve in many ways. How fathers behave towards their children, the idea of having a someone be the love of your life.
It's been interesting seeing how Eve adjusts to all the friends she now has - she still doesn't understand women, or why Roarke loves her as he does.
The things I love about this book though, are all the little touches. Eve finding out that she doesn't have to pay for anything made by Roarke Industries. Eve calling Roarke "such a wife". Peabody and McNabs date. The Christie ending. But the best bit by far, had to be the Romantic evening that Eve arranged (even Summerset thawed out a bit on that one - he likes her, just likes sniping with her even more). How can someone own over 5,000 dinner plates. It was nice to see Eve give something back to her husband and for once it was nice to see Roarke speechless!
Now, what I want to know is - can Eve find the Candy Bar thief?
