review 1: I love Joelle Charbonneau's work. After reading her glee club books, this is my first foray into her Rebecca Robbins series. As usual, she creates characters that are individual yet not so far out that they're not relatable. I found myself wanting to know more about Rebecca's late mom, whose passion was the small-town Illinois roller rink that, in the wake of her death, is now Rebecca's. I felt irritated with Rebecca for wanting to sell the beloved rink and getting back to her big-city Chicago life...but at the same time, I was rooting for her. A very enjoyable mystery made even more awesome by rich characterization. I definitely recommend this book!
review 2: Maybe it’s because I no longer read the mystery genre anymore, but I wasn’t very impressed w
... moreith this short book. In fact, I’m not sure where I even got the recommendation to read it. If it hadn’t been for the sardonic wit of the main character, I might’ve dropped this one and not finished it. The “whodunit” wasn’t that difficult to figure out, nor was it all that interesting. Would only recommend to someone who likes simple, cozy mysteries. less

It was cute mystery. Read for a Reader's group. This book is not something I would normally read.
Generic perky chick mystery. No originality. Wouldn't have finished it if I weren't traveling.
Best first
