He shows her paying for the reckless decisions she makes, and how she has to deal with the consequences trailing into the second book.
Incidentally, these consequences are how she meets Artemis and Butler. In the second book, The Arctic Incident, she goes from blaming Artemis for putting her in a bad position in the LEP to developing a sort of camaraderie with him when they manage to help each other. By the end of the third book, The Eternity Code, their relationship is cemented into something approaching genuine friendship. Holly herself has gone from cowboy cop to responsible officer of the law.
Then, their entire relationship is upended and twisted around. When it becomes apparent that Artemis has encountered a demon, they encounter Minerva Paradizo, another child genius who has managed to obtain a demon, and the deranged Billy Kong. When they arrive back at Artemis and Holly's time, they find that three years have passed in their own dimension.
