Wonderful new series. I love the interaction between Daisy and Solomon. Solomon is an Irish Git according to Daisy and according to Solomon Daisy drives him completely crazy. Solomon always seems to have to be in rescue mode where Daisy is concerned. She goes merrily on her way trying to solve the case while Solomon is always trying to keep her safe and alive. The author is great at building up the excitement throughout the book. There is always a surprise ending at the end of each book and a cliffhanger. I am anxiously awaiting the next great book in this series.
