Fans of the television series will recognize the characters and setting of this story. It picks up right where the recent movie left off. I enjoyed the mystery, but missed the romance between Veronica and Logan. ( )

This is a review of the audiobook. I'm so happy this was read by Kristen Bell. I have a feeling I wouldn't have enjoyed it nearly as much as I did, had it been narrated by anyone else. There isn't anything really special about this book, but if you love Veronica Mars then you will likely enjoy this. ( )

On its own, this is a decent small town detective story turned murder mystery, with the crazy plot par for course in the Veronica Mars universe (which is why I stopped watching after the whole pregnant-in-a-coma-Meg thing. But I missed Poppa Mars and everyone's favorite tiny blonde, so I came crawling back to watch the movie. #TeamPiz). SPOILER: If you thought Lily Kane was a lying, moral-less young thing, wait until you meet the conniving perps of this book. I didn't see that one coming until it was too late.

But. I don't know. The voice didn't *feel* like Veronica. A little too sappy maybe? It lacked that certain pep and zing. And when familiar lines appeared it felt more recycled than in character. Couldn't help but feel that I was reading Officially Sanctioned Fanfiction. I wonder though if that's typical for many novelizations.

But like I said, decent story. Not that I am a mystery genre expert, but from this casual reader, if the names were changed, and a little more backgrounding were done to make up for the preliminary work the show did to familiarize the audience with the characters, then it could probably stand on its own.

Just like an episode of V. Mars! Fast and fun read that picks up after the movie.

Interesting mix of soft-boiled PI and NA. Good story, but the title does not work well. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
For all the Veronica Mars Kickstarter backers. You're like the people who clapped loud enough to bring Tinker Bell back from the dead. Except instead of clapping, you sent money. And instead of a tiny blond fairy, you resurrected a tiny blond detective.
First words
The buses began to roll into Neptune, California, late Friday afternoon and didn't slow up until Monday.
