I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)
The mystery/sleuthing part was nice and interesting to read (little tiny point for pedantics like me: There is no "university of Bavaria". Bavaria is a federal state in the republic of Germany, with Munich as capital. The university in Munich, my alma mater, as it happens, is called "Ludwigs-Maximilians-Universitaet", for short "LMU". If you google "university Munich" it is the first hit after the ads. Just saying...).
The relationship between Pete and Jamie does progress, but I can't help to feel a little bored by Pete. He just doesn't come across as someone so great or interesting.
I will continue with the series, as it is well written, entertaining and interesting.
Maybe it won't become a favourite, but it has its own qualities.
