Okay - now I remember why I stopped reading this series. Claire Mallory is so self-absorbed, so self-centered and so full of her herself, she gets unbearable after awhile. I'm sure this is supposed to be tough in cheek and funny, but it doesn't come off that way; at least not to me.

She also seems to think she is better at investigating murders than the police; even though her new husband is a police official. (I guess she is in a sense - this is a series about her.) The police don't have the same sense of urgency she does and they get bogged down trying to find evidence. She on the other hand, goes off with her hair-brain theories.

Not sure I'll try another; but I must admit, I am curious about the honeymoon in Egypt, which is apparently what the previous book is about. May try that one.
