I picked up this book after a book group friend raved about the Veronica Mars television series Jumping in without knowing anything about the show or the character I was strongly reminded of another series not the television Veronica Mars but another famous young adult female detective Yes that one Of course this is Nancy for the new millennium With Drew s long history of updates Veronica Mars

willingness to be involved in rape cases a type of investigation that never seemed to come Nancy s way But they both have a serious case of daddy worship a seriously clever hunky Dudley Do Right boyfriend and a tendency to be both brainy and sincere Mars however seems less logical involves the police freuently and lacks Nancy s dogged persistenceOn its own Mr Kiss and Tell is a serviceable mystery centered on a likeable female character It avoids many of the chick lit cliches I can t think of when Veronica described her own clothes and although there was the whiff of a love triangle it wasn t even close to the focus of the story Writing was serviceable generally above average for the genre but didn t stand out in beauty or ability to evoke emotion I enjoyed the characterization and thought the characters had a nice degree of dimensionality The setting worked as well with enough detail to individuate scenes Narrative switched a number of times including using that old tv classic of following an unrelated character to the crime scene Although that can be a cheap way to add drama in this case the voice changes helped to nicely round out Veronica s fatherI suspect the real appeal here is the continuation of the Veronica Mars story judging from the reviews and pre sees I saw on Goodreads With that in mind it seems to be a definite continuation of the tv series story arc including dealing with an unethical sheriff and references to prior mysteries she s solved As a new reader the references didn t bother me particularly since Graham didn t get bogged down in explano babble and the longer arc added interesting aspect to the storyWhat didn t work uite as well for me was the plot spoilerspecifics below the break and how generally uncommitted Veronica seemed towards solving the mystery For instance she delegates serious computer research to friend Mac who is far diligent in combing through the material Veronica admits at least twice that she was giving up on the case because her phone calls weren t returned and the police wouldn t help her It seemed pretty half assed for a girl detective who by rights should be determined as the path she is choosing is so unusual as we re told fairly often by Veronica her dad and her boyfriend Plotting had the feel of a television script weak on the logic big on dramatic scenesOverall I d highly recommend it to fans of

actively choosing a detection career has serious admiration for her dad and comes from a background of economic struggle It seemed offPlotting A serious part of her problem solving strategy seems to
