Review: Mr. Kiss and Tell (Veronica Mars #2) by Rob Thomas and Jennifer Graham

Mr. Kiss and Tell (Veronica Mars #2) by Rob Thomas and Jennifer Graham

Blurb from Goodreads:

In the second book in the New York Times bestselling mystery series, Veronica Mars is back with a case that will expose the hidden workings of one of Neptune’s most murderous locations.

The Neptune Grand has always been the seaside town’s ritziest hotel, despite the shady dealings and high-profile scandals that seem to follow its elite guests. When a woman claims that she was brutally assaulted in one of its rooms and left for dead by a staff member, the owners know that they have a potential powder keg on their hands. They turn to Veronica to disprove—or prove—the woman's story.

The case is a complicated mix of hard facts, mysterious occurrences, and uncooperative witnesses. The hotel refuses to turn over its reservation list and the victim won’t divulge who she was meeting that night. Add in the facts that the attack happened months ago, the victim’s memory is fuzzy, and there are holes in the hotel’s surveillance system, and Veronica has a convoluted mess on her hands. As she works to fill in the missing pieces, it becomes clear that someone is lying—but who? And why? 
My Review:
Mr. Kiss and Tell is the second book in the Veronica Mars series.  This book takes place right after the first book, which picks up where the movie ended.  I really liked the first book a lot and the second book is even better!!

There are few fictional characters that I am more attached to than Veronica Mars and Logan Echolls.  That being said, you are totally IN Veronica's head reading these books -- there is nothing that is out of character, and her wit and sarcasm shine through -- these books make me love Veronica (and Logan) even more.  Obviously, these books probably aren't for someone who isn't a VM fan but if you are, even a little, these books are fantastic!  Mr. Kiss and Tell will be released on January 20, 2015, and I highly, HIGHLY recommend it! 
They sat that way for a few minutes, looking into each other's eyes.  And for that brief moment, nothing that'd come before or after mattered.  The sound of gulls and waves surrounded them, the puppy leaned against Veronica's leg, and she and Logan were just where they were supposed to be:  side by side, at the edge of the world.

  1. OOoh nice review! I just finished the first one yesterday and loved it! Immediately preordered this one! Cannot wait to read it! I came way late into the VM game, but I was a fast addict!

  2. I'm reading this at the moment and loving it! I agree, it's definitely a book for people who are VMars fans but they will love the inside jokes and return of favorite characters. I also think while the mystery was "classic Veronica" it is definitely more seedy then some of her others, but I liked that. Can't wait to finish and find out what happens! Great review.

Review: History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

Blurb from Goodreads:
Linda has an idiosyncratic home life: her parents live in abandoned commune cabins in northern Minnesota and are hanging on to the last vestiges of a faded counter-culture world. The kids at school call her 'Freak', or 'Commie'. She is an outsider in all things. Her understanding of the world comes from her observations at school, where her teacher is accused of possessing child pornography, and from watching the seemingly ordinary life of a family she babysits for. Yet while the accusation against the teacher is perhaps more innocent than it seemed at first, the ordinary family turns out to be more complicated. As Linda insinuates her way into the family's orbit, she realises they are hiding something. If she tells the truth, she will lose the normal family life she is beginning to enjoy with them; but if she doesn't, their son may die. Superbly-paced and beautifully written, HISTORY OF WOLVES is an extrao…
