Roarke, speaking to Louise, as they head to the Icove Center. Absolutely spot on. If we don't evolve, we just stay in place. And life passes you by. ~Laura ... See MoreSee Less

I like to think of Roarke’s grin when he chooses the high heels πŸ˜‚

Oh, I love it when Roark chooses Eve's clothes and she's just so baffled at why THIS jacket is so much better than THAT jacket. But he seems to have been rubbing off on her fashion senses.

Eve had no interest in fashion. Clothes were just so you weren't naked πŸ™‚ Roarkes fashion sense and gentle nudging are gradually rubbing off on her. Although she's still not particularly interested, she makes much better choices. πŸ˜€ x

I think it’s funny how she compares summerset to a droid

What i would really like is a drying tube for when i get out of the shower

I want a closet fairy 🧚‍♀️

I love Roark. Too bad everyone can't have a Roark.

Hmm ... it would be interesting to see what clothes my husband would choose for me to put on to work πŸ˜… Unfortunately, he lacks Roark's style ...

I think stana katic will be great eve dallas Hugh Jackman as roarke Definitely Elizabeth banks as Mavis Katie Holmes as Peabody

'Why have cotton when you can have silk'?

I love how Roarke knows exactly what to buy Eve to wear. He knows she has a style even if she doesn't. I love it when she has to dress up fancy and the true terror it causes

She is getting a bit better and is beginning to appreciate that what she wears can make a statement...very begrudgingly but still. πŸ˜‚

We all should have a Roarke

I get such a charge out of the love/hate relationship with Eve and Summerset. But they are both united in their love for Roarke.

Lol. Love how he thinks

Roarke’s taste in clothes is flawless 😍

I wish I had a Roarke to help with my wardrobe.

She IS learning; and getting to the point where she is starting to understand.πŸ˜€πŸ˜

Brown is Brown she gets so mad!!!!

Magic coat, just ahh.

How about that from "Lucifer" as roarke

And with the story of her career in sight, Nadine can forgive the mutant trout crack. Now I'll think of spa treatments that way forevermore. ~Laura ... See MoreSee Less

I love Eve's commentary on beauty procedures

Eve’s fear of “beautification” tickles my funny bone....

Eve hates beauty treatments, but she is starting to understand everyone doesn't.

When Eve says she will get the tartar sauce is the best exit line ever.

I love this series so much! And part of the reason is the character development and the humor!

Does anyone remember a,few years ago, there was a fad for talking fish? They were mostly bass, I think, and their mouths moved. That statement of Eve's brings that picture in my head.

Love Eve pretending to dislike Nadine, but supporting her in her endeavors

Eva hates beauty procedures πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

yes lol

I love Eve and Roark

Proof, FRIENDS can be OPPOSITES. Beautiful.

Great story.

It really was that story. But I don't think Eve would redo.

very blunt language, bad day on air was it{for Nadine}?

Nadine and Eve understand each other.

Eve is creative in her slams!

My mom and dad had that stupid thing

Also the fishing pole game that you cast and reeled in

I love the interactions between Eve and Nadine.

I love how Eve feels when getting worked on by Trina

Since last Thursday, the overwhelming #1 question in my inbox is "Are these the Urban Wars?"

I've had a standard reply about the Urban Wars (and people's desire to read all about them) in place for nearly 16 years, but sometimes you need to go directly to the source.

Nora's thoughtful answer:

In the In Death series, I created the Urban Wars to illustrate how society can be tattered into chaos not only by division, by injustices, but when those who are meant to protect us--to serve and protect--do not. I created Eve Dallas, in part, to illustrate how a good, strong, dedicated cop can and will do so, always.

Laura and I try to keep our social media a fun, dynamic place for readers. A place about books and stories and community. But this is a time the world has become so fraught, torn by sickness and death, grief and anger, lives upended by loss of loved ones, loss of income. We spent the spring in our homes, routines shredded, unable to see friends and family and coworkers while essential workers risked their health to keep us safe.

While we're not through that crisis, and the loss of income, of employment, of businesses hard built will reverberate for a very long time, we now face yet another crisis. I'm not going to lecture on racism. Those who recognize its ugly, destructive tentacles don't need me to educate them. Those who can't or won't see won't hear me.

Opinions will vary on what's happening in this country today, and why it's happening. I insist that any who feel obliged to comment here show respect. Bashing each other verbally only widens divides.

I can hope that those who read and appreciate my books have open minds, open hearts. I can hope you will use those minds and hearts to listen to those who feel strongly enough to protest--to peacefully assemble as is their right. Until we listen, look inside ourselves, we can't begin to heal.

Today, tomorrow, going forward, I hope we can all do whatever we can to protect and respect each other, regardless of where we come from, regardless of our personal beliefs, regardless of the color of our skin.

We're all human beings. We all inhabit the same planet. We're all in this together.

Stay safe. Stay well. Stay human.

Thank you

It does feel like the Urban Wars, but it's not too late to stop it from happening. "If you think small things can't make a difference, spend a night in a room with a mosquito."

Thank you, Nora and Laura...

Thank you!

Well said. Thank you.

Very well said! Thank you πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»

I have said, for years, "we all bleed red blood".

I'm listening to your books and I was wondering if this was the start of the urban wars.

Well said.

Shoot I think you were writing the future. I think we need the home makers pay now too

Thank you, it makes so much sense to stop and think before you repeat hate and anger

I have wondered much the same thoughts. Thank you for using your platform to speak thoughtful and insightful words.

Well said. Thank you. ❀

That is so eloquent and I pray and hope we can be kinder πŸ’ž

Thank you.

Well said. Thank you.

Very well said, these very same words have crossed my mind as well. Both of you be safe and healthy.

Thank you.

I see this as the complement to last week's quote about Roarke "handling" Eve. A commenter had issues with that verb and there was a debate that - on the whole - was civil.
Today I'll share what I think: Eve's a difficult woman. Nora's said that from the outset. We all have difficult people in our lives and how we react to them - handle them as it were - is on us. One of Roarke's methods is pushing food or a soother on his stubborn tired wife. Eve well knows it. And even appreciates it outside the heat of the moment. As we see right here.
We all bring our own perspective to what we read, what we watch. I try hard to respect that, and as always ask others to do so as well. ~Laura

I love how he "handles" her. Shows that she's his absolute world.

I think Eve feels "handled" because she doesn't know what love is. That we do stuff, take care of those we love.

He has a strong sense of nurturing and he nurtures his wife. She's had none of that her whole life until Roarke. She loves him, and recognized that he loves her.

My companion "handles " me by telling me to sit down and read for awhile

Well said Laura

I don't consider her "difficult". She simply doesn't buy into the world's idiotic priorities. Her list of "what's important" is short and has no room for vanities or superfluous trivialities. I admire her as originally written and understand perfectly her resentment when people drag her into things she considers a waste of her time.

One aspect of love is "handling" that person's quirks, health issues, personality differences, etc. For instance, I joke about "poking" my husband in the eyes several times a day... I give him (four different types of) eye drops for glaucoma. When we had to start this process, it was stressful for both of us. Eventually, I just told him to sit down so I could poke him in the eye. He laughed, and now that's how we deal with it. "Sit down so I can poke you in the eye," or "Well, I guess it's time for me to poke you in the eye." Then we snicker about it and give each other a kiss after each application.

You ARE the author of Roarke & Eve therefore you HANDLE the characters any way you want. We the readers get it !!!!!πŸ™‹‍β™€οΈπŸ€·‍β™€οΈπŸ€¦‍β™€οΈπŸ’―πŸ‘πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

I was not party to the original conversation, but some strong personalities can only be "handled" by those who hold a very strong mutual love. #truth

I love how Roarke takes care of Eve. It’s not handling, it’s his love for her.

Love how Roarke tends Eve, even tho he is exasperated with her neglecting herself. I think that is what I love most about the series

I am a "difficult" person. I suffer from chronic migraine but as a special needs mom I tend to ignore my own care in favor of caring for others. Only my eldest can "handle" me so I don't notice being taken care of at all. They just sort of have me drinking a glass of water and playing a "quick game" if Playstation to "catch up". Before I know it I am resting and remembering to eat and take a breath. I understand her so much. Carers feel "handled" when someone cares for us. And Eve would scowl at me calling her that, but every victim she serves, her squad, and her friends, are "hers" - she's a carer, same as me. And I scowl when someone says it, too!

Well stated, Laura. Eve IS a difficult woman but Roarke has learned how to work around that...thus, he knows how to “handle” her...it is obvious they love each other beyond belief....

When you truly love someone those basic caring about their welfare all comes into play....he sees her focus and commitment to her job and the toll it can take on her emotionally and physically. So he tries to ease her pain because at times her laser focus drives her to the brink of exhaustion! He loves her.....

I'm supposed to be getting my signed copy of Golden in Death today, I'm so excited!

Handle/deal with. In any relationship we handle the moods of others. I respect the commenter’s reaction to the word handle. I also know how to phrase things to my husband and he knows that certain things set me off. Is that handling? After 42 years you learn to ‘handle’ each other or you would have walked away.

Well said.

Totally off subject but I started to read Year One yesterday omg it is terrific

Roarke knows how to handle eva because he loves her

Anyone else thinking 2020 is the beginning of the Urban Wars...?

My husband handles me all the time. I have ME and often "forget" and end up trying to do too much. He knows this is bad for me, so he handles me out of love and because it's what's best for me.

Love these books and have read all of them.

We all have to know how to "handle" those we love, whether it be a spouse, a child, or even an aging parent. For example, my mother has dementia and although she does well for the most part I don't feel like it is safe for her to drive. Do I tell her that --absolutely not. If I said "you can't drive". She would drive or kill both of us trying to prove she could. Instead we go places together which she prefers and I drive. That is "handling" her. And that is life.

Handling is a perfect term. We do it all the time!

I think it shows just how much he loves her. We could all use a little of that.
