Acquired via BookCrossing 26 May 2009 – on a book spiral

Fowler approaches the difficulty of where to set the new book in a series without it getting stale by moving the action to Benni’s other half Gabe’s home town, family and friends.  This allows us to explore Benni’s reaction to a new environment, a new cast of characters (while keeping some older ones in the picture through a hilarious family road-trip) and her evolving relationship with Gabe, as well as a new murder and the issues around old and newer friendships.  Good stuff.
