Waiting on Wednesdays is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine. The purpose is to spotlight upcoming book releases that we are excited for.
Mr. Kiss and Tell (Veronica Mars, #2) by Rob Thomas and Jennifer Graham
In the second book in the New York Times bestselling mystery series, Veronica Mars is back with a case that will expose the hidden workings of one of Neptune’s most murderous locations.
The Neptune Grand has always been the seaside town’s ritziest hotel, despite the shady dealings and high-profile scandals that seem to follow its elite guests. When a woman claims that she was brutally assaulted in one of its rooms and left for dead by a staff member, the owners know that they have a potential powder keg on their hands. They turn to Veronica to disprove—or prove—the woman’s story.
The case is a complicated mix of hard facts, mysterious occurrences, and uncooperative witnesses. The hotel refuses to turn over its reservation list and the victim won’t divulge who she was meeting that night. Add in the facts that the attack happened months ago, the victim’s memory is fuzzy, and there are holes in the hotel’s surveillance system, and Veronica has a convoluted mess on her hands. As she works to fill in the missing pieces, it becomes clear that someone is lying—but who? And why?
I’m just gonna say it. I love Veronica Mars. I love any adaptation of her; TV, movies, books. I don’t care if she’s 16 or 20 or 30. I will keep consuming her stories as long as Rob Thomas wants to keep writing them. As for this particular story, I’m a little on the impatient side, because originally this was supposed to come out in October, and they pushed back the release date. There are so many reasons why I’m excited for this next book. I heard it’s going to have more of the story with Weevil and his problems and also, Logan is coming back from his tour overseas. Both of these things are gonna be AWESOME! Plus with this new mystery in V. Mars’s hands… things are gonna get good. Feel free to “squee” if you’re with me on this!
