My thoughts

When I "chit chatted" with Lindsay Downs via FB a few weeks back the author told me that she loosely used JAG and NCIS as an idea for the Emily Dahill stories. That was it for me I had to read the book.

I would have liked to give the book 5/5 but I honestly have to say reading through the stories felt like having a yummy cake in front of you, but you're only allowed to have a little piece. The stories (see above for the outline) were interesting, written with (IMHO) knowledge, humour and wit, yet I would have like to have more of it. More detail. More background. More who's who. More character development - I believe I would have enjoyed it even more.

Favourite Quote:
"You know Special Agent Emily Dahill, I've been detained by all sorts of police, military and civilian, but I swear this is the first time by someone wearing bright pink, floppy eared, bunny slippers."

I definitely recommend the Emily Cahill Stories to anyone .... the fast paced short stories can be read within an hour or two. Yet another very good reason: 100% of the proceeds from the this book go to Japan relief!
