This is the third and last book in the "Smart Chick Mystery" trilogy.
Jo Tulip's boyfriend, Danny Watkins, is off to Europe for his big break in photography and working with a world renowned photographer who Danny greatly admires. When he returns Jo hopes that he will marry her.
In the meantime, Jo is staying at her Grandmothers while she goes through physical therapy from the injuries she sustained when her house blew up. She has also been getting some e-mails requesting help cleaning a really dirty toaster oven and advice on how to let someone know their life is in danger anonymously. The police don't take her seriously until the e-mailer reveals that the person in danger is Jo.
Her grandmother has taken in a young teen-age girl, Alexa, who has been living a very disadvantaged life, and for some reason Jo's Grandmother has decided to be the young girl's benefactor. In her new environment, Alexa is thriving, but she still has a lot of questions and doesn't completely understand why she is where she is.
In this book, Jo and Danny's paths cross despite the Atlantic in the middle and Jo learns the real reason why Bradford was engaged to her, left her at the altar and who is out to get her.
This third "Smart Chick" mystery is the best yet. This quickly moving story keeps you reading, while learn the answers to questions left from the first two books. Very enjoyable while providing answers for the lost and lonely seperated from those they love.
I got 50 pages into this book and then I had to put it down. I was no interested in it anymore. The characters became increasingly complex and they kept adding characters that you had no idea who they were or how they played into the story. I read book 2 but never book 1 and perhaps you need to read book 1 in order to understand what is going on in this final book.
