Mark Twain wrote: The adoption of cremation would relieve us of a muck of threadbare burial-witticisms; but, on the other hand, it would resurrect a lot of mildewed old cremation jokes that have had a rest for two thousand years.

This "she doesn't need a man" trope gets very tedious very quickly. The formulaic, predictable romance in this story is insufferable. The suspense is good and would have been even better without the romantic interruptions. And unfortunately, the characters are very cookie-cutter. Hopefully, future books in this series will focus on the mystery and not romance.

Kristin James' delivery is overly dramatic and her accents seem artificial and somewhat forced. She does give distinctive voices to the characters.
