The negatives: I didn't like the murder mystery in this book as well as some of the other Hannah Swenson books. The plot just went too far beyond being unrealistic. Not only does every officer on the police force decide to have Hannah assist them in the murder investigation when they are all suspended, but the dectective from out of town also asks Hannah for help. It was odd and a bit distracting. In addition, at times Hannah sounds more like a senior citizen in this book than a 30 year-old woman. This is a direct quote from this novel: "(Hannah) wasn't sure what offended her more, the fact that all Jordan High kids were sending text messages with improper spelling and no punctuation, or the fact that texting was fast becoming accepted as a word." Fluke needs to remember how old Hannah is!

The positives: I loved the Moishe mystery in this novel. It was a lot of fun to read. I was also happy to see SOME movement in the Mike/Norman/Hannah love triangle. It became clear (to me at least) who Hannah should choose.

Overall, I'd recommend this book to big Hannah Swenson fans. This is not a book to read without reading all of the other Hannah Swenson mysteries. It would be too confusing without knowing all of the background info.
