I found some of Claire's thoughts entertaining and clever. It has a touch of noir in some of the lines - just a touch, enough to add to the fun. The plot is complex enough to keep me engaged, and that's saying something. I love a good puzzle, one where there are enough clues that I can solve it eventually, but not so many that it's obvious early. Kudos to the author.
I've read some of her other books--this is my favorite.
It's FPPOV, which I'm not fond of. Not many people can do it well. Ms. Fowkes needs some work.
It's a cozy, so I have lower expectations, but still, it's rough. (The next book is worse.)
There are the obligatory formatting, grammar, and punctuation errors that abound in these types of books. The writing itself is ... rough. I don't care to go digging for examples, but it's like she thinks she's being clever and it's falling flat. The plot is simplistic. The characters aren't that well drawn. It's just not all that entertaining. And, geez, every guy falls for our main character. Seriously? She's a bit of a bumbling idiot.
By the second book, there are some grave plot holes & contradictions. I doubt I'll continue.
Great storyline, with strong interesting characters. A sub-story of she meets him, well more than one him. He meets her. Feelings blossom.
Glad to find out that this is the beginning of a series.
