This week's quotes are from "New York to Dallas" by J.D. Robb. It's part of her In Death series which I love. I borrowed this one from my library. I love this series so you're sure to see more quotes from the books! :D In the first quote, Peabody is nervous about publicly being awarded a medal and then her parents arrive. The second quote is from right after the ceremony.

"Don't, don't. You'll make me cry, and I'm not allowed to. Under orders."

"So we heard." Tossing back her long, dark hair Phoebe stepped over, gave Eve a hug and a kiss on the check. The quick laugh said she knew the display of affection embarrassed Eve. "You look formidable in uniform. And sexy. Doesn't she, Sam?"

"She does."

She got another hug and kiss, right in her own bullpen. Free-Agers, she thought, they just had to spread the love. 


The milling began-shoulder slaps, handshakes. She caught the glint in Peabody's eye, and fired one back. 

"No hugging. Cops don't hug."

Peabody tracked her gaze to Strong, currently being hugged by another cop.

"She sustained injuries."

"Okay, but in my mind you're getting a giant hug and a big, sloppy kiss."

"Keep it in your head or you'll sustain injuries."

Lol, Eve just doesn't handle emotion well but I'd want her on my case if something happened to me.


  1. I love this series. It just keeps getting better and better.

  2. oh yes excellent series! I have so many quotes pulled from it I could easily use it every week. lol it's so hard resisting the urge. I still need to read the last one. Have been saving it for when I really need to spend time with a good book.

  9. One day I'm determined to give this one a try.. I just have to get over the fact that I usually dislike Nora Roberts so I've been hesitant to try this series. Great quote though Bea!
