Rob Thomas & Jennifer Graham “Mr Kiss & Tell” (Vintage, 2015)
Here’s a quick synopsis for anyone who is unfamiliar with Veronica Mars. She’s a post-Buffy Nancy Drew – solving mysteries in a small Southern California town. The TV show lasted for only three seasons, but there was a kickstarter funded film set 10 years after the end of the series. This is the second novel.
This is clearly a story set deep into continuity. There are references to past cases, characters, and relationships. If you aren’t familiar with this, it’s probably a bit confusing at times. Or at least you just won’t care. If you are a fan of the series, however, you’ll find lots of details that will delight you.
This isn’t a great book. It’s not going to sell you on Veronica Mars. But if you are already a fan, you are definitely going to enjoy this. The character voices are all there, and it’s an opportunity to revisit some old friends.
