Excellent entertainment! Well, written and edited. Barnaby Wilde relates a tale as though he had lived it. No, I know he isn't D.I. Flowers and I'm pretty sure he isn't Mercedes... Perhaps the intimidating biker? In any case, he's got the story to perfection. I can absolutely recommend this tale with no hesitation!

I really enjoyed these stories. They were nice little police procedurals with a touch of romance on the side. The nice thing about them is that the romantic aspect (Mercedes) became intermingled with the storyline of the (official) investigation (Flowers), so the stories are almost like a hybrid between a cozy with an amateur sleuth and a procedural. Lots of fun and I enjoyed both of the central characters. My one objection is the editing. The author needs to learn the difference between it's and its or find an editor who does. I counted at least six times where he used it's where the possessive its should have been used. There was also an instance where he used a plural (a moments silence) where the possessive (a moment's silence) was needed. Given the main character's tendency to gripe about grammatical errors (specifically complaints about double negatives and the use of quick instead of quickly), I find the glaring grammatical errors very annoying and a touch hypocritical.

Free, three short stories. About a police officer and a biker babe, the book is set in England. Part of a series. Pretty well edited. Not bad. These were nice, clean, non-violent reads. AD

More flowers than Drew, but enjoyable whoever the main character is.
