This series is a bit weaker than McKinlay's others but I did enjoy it. A bit more research should be done about living in London. Even though Scarlett is from the US, she spent most of her summers with her aunt and cousin in London. So, she shouldn't be making some American mistakes. For example, many of the buildings are three stories with a store filling the bottom level and living areas the top two levels. In London the bottom level is the ground floor and the next level up is the first floor, the top level here is the second floor. So why is Scarlett referring to the top floor as the third floor? Poor research by the author. And she consistently referred to little baked goods as cookies when in England they are called biscuits. Annoying little things make it clear the author doesn't know enough about British ways. The story itself was okay and I will keep reading the series but, please, Jenn McKinlay, do some research on London.

Not for me. The central character is obsessing about whether the meal she just shared is a "date" after leaving the scene of a murder. Such a ditz. That's when I shut the book and sent it back to the library. I have enjoyed some of the author's other books but this one is not for me.
