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...)
It has action, suspense, a decent crime plot and some very good banter going.
What it is decidedly lacking is romance.
Jeremy and Simon are not a cute couple. They are not a couple at all. And certainly no friends.
I find this detracts a bit from my reading pleasure. I love Jeremy,he is a great and funny character. Simon, not so much. I didn't warm to him in this installment. And his behaviour towards Jeremy is not so great. I am not seeing what Jeremy would see in him, except physical appearance.
