The first book, "Crocodile on the Sandbank", sets the stage by introducing Amelia and Emerson, which is a cool romance, but theirs is a unique relationship that is not at all mushy or sentimental. There are plenty of laugh out loud moments, too, and I knew after finishing the first book I was in love the series.

i found the constantpoking fun at the romance genre, which she really wasn't rising above, a bit distracting

Once I got past the "gentle reader" references that were authentic if a bit cloying, I found myself enjoying it. A fun blend of romance, mystery and adventure
