This book was pretty meh for me. By the end I was wondering why on earth Calli is a PI since she seems to neither like it nor be good at it. Also none of the characters got more fleshed out from the first book, making them seem more like caricatures than real people. Calli herself is kinda complex I guess but after this book I have to say I don't really like her. She seems like a stereotype of the butch who won't grow up, like the dyke version of a straight dude who doesn't know anything about w ...more

I received Oranges and Lemons by Liz Bugg as a First Reads Giveaway. I loved the mystery of the book and could not wait to find out what was going on at the agency.

Another great book, as good as the first in the series. Calli is becoming like an old pair of shoes you feel great slipping into.

The book starts again with Calli meeting a new client she's intimidated by and again reluctant to accept the case. How does this woman get any business?

We see Calli go undercover, which is brilliant and provides some comic relief even before her drag queen sidekick arrives to liven up the party.

I liked that we got to see more of Calli's girlfriend, she wasn't really i

A favourite early piano tune, a city I know and love... What could be better? Not forensic accounting, unfortunately. Good characters, good writing, good loving, great descriptions of familiar landmarks; even some blood and guts - but, I'm sorry, Ms Bugg, you failed to win me over to the advertising world. ...more
