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.

  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.
