Holiday in death and All U can eat

Holiday in death by JD.Robb

Synopsis :

NYPD Lieutenant Eve Dallas is on the trail of a serial killer terrorizing the city during the holidays. The only link between the victims--all are patrons of an exclusive dating service, Personally Yours. Working with her aide Officer Peabody, Peabody's nemesis Ian McNab, and her own intriguing husband, Roarke, Eve uncovers secrets that link the victims: secrets that involve both the owners and the clients of Personally Yours and which might be worth killing for.

You can never go wrong (IMO) with the in death collection and i am quite pleased to say i am not bored yet but because i don't want to accelerate the process i tried to read them slowly (one every three or four weeks),
This one is no exception ,just few annoyance though ,Roarke always butting in annoy me and Peabody ? I never thought she was the brightest bulb of the pack but bringing a male prostitute (also a suspect) you have just met in the morning to your boss Christmas party ? just brilliant ! a perfect match for McNab .
Grade: 3/5

All U can eat by Emma Holly

Sinopsis :

When the body of a wealthy woman is discovered in an alley near Frankie Smith's diner, Frankie realizes she's one of Chief Jack West's prime suspects. The truth is, Jack's attraction to the sexy proprietor of All U Can Eat is all-consuming—though he knows hauling her into custody isn't going to improve his chances with her.

What neither of them realizes is that the town of Six Palms is full of secrets that would shock even the raciest residents. Determined to clear her name—and to get to know the police chief better—Frankie joins Jack on a rollercoaster ride of an investigation. And soon, letting go of their inhibitions seems like the most natural thing in the world.

As i said before i avoid Ellora's cave because it's just too much but i wanted to try one of her book because they seems "milder" .
It was and i enjoyed it more than i thought i would ,it's less heavy on "the words" (you know THE WORDS! like juice ,cream and other thing i usually like to eat or pet !).
I liked the heroine ,she is not shy and has many different partner but did not feel slutty to me ,too bad i wanted her to end with someone else *sight*.
Still even if it was nice ,this book felt a bit unfinished ,i would have liked to know more about the protagonist and "the mystery" not very exiting.
