The romance doesn’t really start until 50% through the book and even then it still takes a backseat to the murder plot until 75% into it.

The murderer's POV takes up all of chapter 8 and reveals not only who it is, but also the motivation for the killing. The murderer is given a couple more POV scenes in the middle of the book. So there isn't really a mystery.

The reviews I read prior to reading this book gave me high expectations for the romance and humor. While I was disappointed in the romance, I did find the development of it to be natural and at a realistic pace. However, I wanted more focus on the leads getting together and not as much on the logistics of the case. There was humor in several scenes but I did not find the overall tone of the book to be humorous.

The writing is clean and I would read the author again.
