Langton was a hot mess and for all he was a good detective I just plain didn't like him. Anna was not a hot mess exactly, but she was also not very strong in her mental fortitude or resilience. I kind of expect my female protagonists to be more badass.
The rest of the office is pretty much ignored beyond there are other officers working there. So I never really felt I got to know any of them and they were barely distinguishable from each other. One female can't get a sandwich without tomatoes, the other female isn't made to get lunch, one male has a newborn baby and the other male does not.
Overall, it's not a bad start to a series - just depends on your expectations. I'll likely pick up the next one - I did really enjoy the procedural part - and hopefully the romance either gets better or goes away. 3.5 stars.
