And then I met Kate. The interaction between these two characters--all the characters, really--would have kept me reading just about anything. They're funny, flawed, realistically drawn and very well written. The budding romance between Kate and Tony was absolutely adorable, and the real person feel of the characters made me cheer and fear for them. The dialogue was wonderful and had me laughing out loud more than once. I always think that the sign of good dialogue when I just have to tell someone else about it, and my fiancé heard quite a bit while I was reading.
There were some issues with the story, of course. I thought there could have been more separation and character development between scenes like the taking of people's statements, for instance. These recountings sometimes occurred in large blocks of dialogue and I think it could have been broken down and livened up a little. Toward the end, the story slowed down for me. I felt the mystery elements--although well researched--needed some fine tuning. They could have been more energetic, and at times they felt more like background than plot.
Kate also seemed more like the main character than I'd expected, since the summary is all about Tony, and I would have liked to get more into Tony's head. I didn't understand him as well as I understood Kate, but since this is the first book in a series, I expect to get to know him better as the story progresses.
Ms. Jameson engineered a few surprises that I never saw coming, and I enjoyed the twists that situations took. While I wasn't entirely surprised by the killer, I liked the way the situation was handled. It was different, provided interesting new bits of characterization and story for later in the series, and showed that Ms. Jameson does not need her heroes to be perfect, cardboard cutouts. She continued to make them feel like people, all the way through.
This sounds like a bad review, but it's not. There is enough here to merit the investment in time. I think the author has an engaging couple here and I look forward to meeting them again. All-in-all this is a promising first outing and enjoyable read.

I enjoyed the book, it's light but well written, well paced and has good characters (I forgot to mention Bhar who's a card - the humour is again handled well without being too heavy handed) and I'm certainly waiting for the next one.

never had a book that said you could not lend to someone when done.
It really did not matter who got killed or who did it.
