Last year (the year before?) Angela James did a complete re-read of the In Death series by JD Robb (aka Nora Roberts). Since then I’ve been thinking of doing the same thing, but it is such a daunting task! If you include the short stories, we’re up to 47 books as of Taken in Death in the Mirror, Mirror anthology. Yikes!
Another option was a complete re-read of Suz Brockmann’s Troubleshooters series. That’s a little less of a commitment at ONLY 16 books. LOL I listened to the most of the series a few years ago when I was fixing Chez Guppy the First (aka the Condo from Hell) for sale, but I’ve kind of been craving a good Alpha hero (SEALs always welcome) series of books, and I can count on Suz for exactly that.
What to do? What to do? Yeah, Alpha SEALs, but, really, does ANY hero get more Alpha than Roarke? So I did what everyone does these days. I took the question to Twitter! LOL.
I’m debating between reading the entire JD Robb In Death series or rereading the Suz Brockmann Troubleshooters books. Both HUGE time sucks

The response was overwhelmingly for the In Deaths. Well, really, they were for Roarke, because…ROARKE. Hello? LOl. But this tweet was what made my decision for me:
@FishWithSticks rereading?? I'm doing the in death reread now. Ironically Suzanne is on my list to reread soon.

It appears Carrie Ann Ryan and I will be tandem re-reading for the next however long. LOL. 47 In Deaths plus 16 Troubleshooters….carry the 2….You should see us in April sometime. LOL.
Wish us luck. And in the meantime, you can follow along on Twitter using #InDeathReRead. I’ll also be reviewing the books, but know there will be LOTS of spoilers. Hey, you haven’t read them by now (and why the hell not?!) then your loss, and you won’t care. LOL.
