In the introductory novella in this series I found a chick I could totally get behind. She was a tough, touchy, a little trashy, and a definite badass. Unfortunately the series has gone lame and the repetitive plots are gotten seriously tired. The best new part of Cal in this book is that she's gone back to smoking; with today's attitudes writers seem to want to ignore that about twenty percent of the nation does smoke. It's possible that with the drama in the little mountain town seeming to be done Cal Corwin can hopefully stay in her natural urban setting and begin to get past not being a cop. I so want to like this series but unless the author comes up with a different plot and a main character that begins to grow I'll be giving up on her.
