Bad Kitty

I haven't read any book that made me laugh out loud as much as this fun little mystery which takes place in Las Vegas. It's Miss Marple turns Valley Girl. "Suspicious? Are candy necklaces yummy?" An unusual feature of this book is an ongoing dialogue between the characters in footnotes. They were about as welcome as people sitting behind you in a movie theater talking nonstop about the plot! Others may find it fun but it was a little distracting for me.

However, Jasmine is a wonderfully bright girl who is able to practice her own brand of detective work like creating a fume hood to bring up fingerprints with Super Glue using a shoe box and a mug warmer.

I recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun fast read.

My rating for this book: +++
