In the second book in the New York Times bestselling mystery series, Veronica Mars is back with a case that will expose the hidden workings of one of Neptune’s most murderous locations.
The Neptune Grand has always been the seaside town’s ritziest hotel, despite the shady dealings and high-profile scandals that seem to follow its elite guests. When a woman claims that she was brutally assaulted in one of its rooms and left for dead by a staff member, the owners know that they have a potential powder keg on their hands. They turn to Veronica to disprove—or prove—the woman's story.
The case is a complicated mix of hard facts, mysterious occurrences, and uncooperative witnesses. The hotel refuses to turn over its reservation list and the victim won’t divulge who she was meeting that night. Add in the facts that the attack happened months ago, the victim’s memory is fuzzy, and there are holes in the hotel’s surveillance system, and Veronica has a convoluted mess on her hands. As she works to fill in the missing pieces, it becomes clear that someone is lying—but who? And why?
I find that it isn't as fun to read a Veronica Mars book as it is to watch it unfold on the screen. There are so many little details in the book that my they wouldn't be able to show everything though so I am okay with it.Needless to say I still enjoyed this book. I am a Veronica Mars fanatic and I just can't get enough. I love where the books pick up where the movies left off and follow in their stead. This book took a while to get through it seemed a little slow to me and I did struggle a bit through it.I loved seeing the relationship between Veronica and Logan again. The sheriff election was a fun perk and I really missed hearing more about Wallace because he is one of my favorite characters.Anyways, this is a fun read that I would recommend to any true fan of Veronica Mars. I loved it and can't wait to read more!
