At home in Wellington Diane’s boyfriend has bonded with her dog and her ex, her relationship has become serious, and her ex wants to sell the marital home. Diane deals with this as her credit card balance dwindles and she keeps annoying police officers with her inability to keep her nose out of cases. The adorable Wolf, Diane’s ex-police dog, appears throughout the book, as does the cute cop Robbie.
A strong, capable character, I’m impressed by Diane’s tenacity and her ability to have everything turn out ok in the end. There where I few twists I didn’t see coming and the ending took be my surprise. Set in Auckland and Wellington, the places were familiar and there were a few aspects unique to New Zealand.
I HAD to buy the second in the series as this series is so good! Paperbacks are available from New Zealand websites only, but there is an e-book version.
