Book Review: The Private School Murders
Book 2 in the Confessions series
AUTHOR: James Patterson and Maxine Paetro
PREMISE: Tandy's adventures as a detective aren't over. Now she not only has to clear her brother's name, but solve the murders of local private school girls, and figure out what happened to the boy she fell for but can't remember.
MY REVIEW: Patterson books can always be kind of off and on for me. Luckily, this series seems to be one that is on. True, the mysteries are pretty normal thriller wise but are interesting enough to keep reading.
What keeps me interested in this one is the interesting character of Tandy. She very much reminds me of Veronica Mars and that is not at all a bad thing (yes, I'm a Marshmellow). The interesting family dynamics as well as the colorful cast of characters (C.P. is the best) make the rather normal mystery more fun.
No, it's not the most original thing in the world. But if you are in the mood for a sassy girl detective mystery, this definitely fits the bill.
WHO SHOULD READ: Fans of Confessions of a Murder Suspect, Police TV procedural fans, James Patterson fans
MY RATING: Four out of Five sassy detectives
