Now brokenhearted, nearly penniless, and once again unemployed, Phineas finds herself partnering up with her sister to take a second shot at success.

As the bodies begin piling up, Phoebe and Phineas get caught up in a case of conspiracy and scandal that once haunted small-town Lair.

My Opinion:
Mystery - check.
Romance - check.
Humor - check.
This book had it all for a little one, and it packed a mighty punch! I thought the authors were quite clever in their writing style, and found myself giggling outright. I was dumbfounded with the twist in the end, and had no idea it was there! Nicely played ladies!!
The characters are molded in such a way, that you don't have to be a woman, let alone a sister to appreciate the story. Men will completely love the tale of these two relentless ladies, sniffing where they shouldn't. You will get lost in the story right till the very end!
Definitely on my recommendation list, and I do hope I see more, like a series?! That would be sublime!
(5/5)

  1. Oooh, this does sound good and that's quite the recommendation. I like the cover - kind of shadowy, scary.

Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
