Case Study: Can caffeine induce delusions of grandeur?
These books have the potential to be an entertaining series, but are hampered by being (to borrow a phrase from Andrew Greeley) patently ridiculous. The characters are likable, the plots aren't bad; but the idea that a high-ranking detective is going to allow, let alone encourage, his girlfriend's solo sleuthing and interference in police investigations is...well, patently ridiculous. Added to that in this book is the blessing and encouragement for said interference by a fire marshal re various arson investigations, and you move into the land of absurdity. Keep writing, Cleo, but keep it a little more real.

Within each book after mike and clare get together their chemistry became something...boring. the hint of the hard edge of mike working as a cop has cushioned to a softie whimpering "sweetie, honey, so on" it was the romance they had going on that really hooked me but now its all gone into something lovey-dovey.
