Utterly goofy and improbable, but not without a certain charm. The character Dale, the heroine's best friend, was adorable. ( )

I really liked this book and I loved the second in the series. Mo and Dale are clearly written characters with individual quirks that make them interesting but never unreal. Mo has some flaws and I don't like them, but overall I like her better for having them. Dale is delightful. If I could time travel into the future twenty years, one thing I'd do is look to see how many more Tupelo Landing books I can buy and enjoy. As it is, I'll have to wait for the third in the series and hope that the author has plenty more planned. ( )

Mo and her friends set out to find the murderer, but then Miss Lana and the Colonel are kidnapped!
Can Mo and her friends find the murderer and save Miss Lana and the Colonel in time? You'll have to rad to find out.
I really like this book. I liked it because it gave you a sense of excitement and suspense until the very end, it was a real page turner.I recommend this book to mature readers because there is a bit of foul language and things that could make younger readers quite scared. ( )

Trouble cruised into Tupelo Landing at exactly seven minutes past noon on Wednesday, the third of June, flashing a gold badge and driving a Chevy Impala the color of dirt.
