The book cover is average, or less. It does talk much about the book content though: a self-absorbing, wanna-be P.I. It's 'The MD Mysteries', right? Love its title though..
Good characters building, nice background story, interesting side-plots (Mr. White's is my favorite), and of course intriguing mysteries. A great mystery book, until MD showed up. Narcistic, brave but clumsy, not good at investigation (like there's such thing in this book), she's more of a burden than a real hero. And the intriguing cases turned out to be petty crimes, then DF lost his investigating skill too, then silly romance.... Probably better if the book focus on adventures and romance instead, with sleuth as background.

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!
