Osborn, Stephanie: The Displaced Detective #5: A Case of Spontaneous Combustion (2014). Passable writing, an interesting solution, but way too much time spent on the romance and emotional complications. When I buy a Sherlock story, I want Sherlock, not a romance novel.

I am not a fan of romance novels in general, though I will make exceptions for Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer. [and Barbara Metzger, because she's funny.]
Having looked unsuccessfully for this series since I first heard of it, I bought it without investigating carefully. I will look at the earlier ones if they come my way, because I know that sometimes a series begins well and then goes downhill, but I won't buy sight unseen.
