I chose the last audiobook that I've been reading again, and it's amazing! It's another excerpt from the "In Death" series by J.D. Robb, "Thankless in Death". It's also the last full length novel in the series and I am panicking a little:

“I’m getting one. A medal.”
“That’s lovely. Congratulations.”
“It’s a big one. I don’t mean . . .” She held her hands out to indicate big size. “It’s a big deal one. Medal of Honor. That’s for—”
“I know what it’s for, what it means.” He reached for her hand, held it and her eyes. “There is no higher honor in your world. It’s more than deserved, more than earned.”
“They could keep the medal and give me a bigger budget.”
He lifted her hand to his lips. “I’m so proud of you, and so amused at your discomfort in being recognized for your dedication and skill.”
“Amused? Here’s another funny for you. You’re getting a medal, too.”
He dropped her hand. “What? I’m a civilian, as you continually remind me.”
“The Civilian Medal of Merit, and they don’t give them out like candy, pal, especially to shady characters.”
“I don’t think it’s appropriate.”
She loved it, just loved when he turned all dignified.
“Oh, it is, and now I get to be amused. You’re the one who started sticking his nose in, then his whole body. Now you’re going to have to stand up there on Wednesday afternoon—fourteen hundred, so put that in your book—and take what you get. And I’m pretty damn proud of you, too, so suck it up.”
“Aren’t we a pair? Christ, the abuse I’ll take over this by old mates. A bloody medal.”
“The department values you, and it should. So we’re having champagne and this really tasty lobster before I get back in gear.” She took another drink. “And there’s this other thing.”
“More? More than double murders, assholes, and medals?”
I was laughing like a maniac the whole time while I listened to this scene.
