Review: Confessions: Private School Murder

It's been a few months since the death of Tandy's parents. She hasn't gotten used to be normal and having feelings. And it's about to get worse.

Her brother's on trail for the murder of his girlfriend and unborn son.  There's no evidence against him except he doesn't have an alibi and he has motive.  Tandy knows she has to do something to help.

When a girl is murdered in her neighborhood, Tandy itches to look into it.  When more girls appear die, she's convinced there's a serial killer on the loose.

On top of the investigations, her memories are starting to come back. She knows James is real and her first love, but why is it so hard for her to remember?

As the days go on, things become more clear. Can Tandy solve three mysteries - one for her family, one for the neighborhood, and one for herself.
My Thoughts: I confess like the sequel better than the first book. I devoured this book.  I found Tandy more likable and enjoyed her thought process and know-it-all tendencies. I loved the introduction of Jacob and what that means for the family. I found Mathew's story line - it was sad and heartbreaking. What horrors this family has gone through.  I found Hugo sweet and a little crazy. I liked the blooming relationship between Harry and Tandy's friend. I liked the set up for the next book; especially the potential location.

Cover Thoughts: I like it.

I hated the first one. Glad to hear the second one was better...

The ending in this book is better and the characters are more likable - a little softer. :)

Never read the first--maybe I'll just start with the second :-) It sounds interesting...
