My personal Rating-

While not a favorite Mandie mystery of mine, it still is a good one with good lessons—and more Mandie and Joe parts. We also find out the Riley isn’t much older than Joe in this one and my honest reaction is to tell him to stay away from Mandie. That girl has enough wannabe suitors! ;)

See y’all on Monday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
