This episode of the Hope Herring Mystery series has many storylines. The mystery of who killed the ghost of Hope's house was solved in a previous book. However, the mystery behind Hope's husband's apparent "accident" has not been solved. The ghost of the house is searching the Internet and reading a lot of interesting facts, as well as developing a way to change his clothes by wishing certain fashionable clothes throughout the 20th Century to appear on his ghostly body. It must be nice to be able to do that without paying for the outfits. He is also helping Hope find out what really happened to her husband. Another mystery is who killed the principal at the school where Hope works, and why. And who found her body? Well, Hope, of course! There are several suspects, and I must admit I did not figure this out until it was revealed in the book. The third mystery was that Cori's friend, Lottie, is doing some pretty radical things at school. She is watching a person called "Exotic Kitty" on the Internet, and this person is texting Lottie about what to wear and how to act. Cori is Hope's 14 year old daughter, and I absolutely love the relationship between mother and daughter. Hope, Cori, and Max the ghost all try to help Lottie by finding out more about who Exotic Kitty is. I DID have this part figured out that Exotic Kitty was not who they pretended to be. I gave this episode 5 stars, and recommend everybody from children to adult to read it, especially those who are so obsessed with Internet podcasts, vlogs (video blogging), and online dating.
Two mysteries in one story.
But different,one is about murder, the other is about a run away teen age girl with a hint of human trafficking.
Both stories keep you guessing.
Hope and Cori Herring along with their house ghost Max have their work cut out for them.
What has Max found out about Doug's murder?
Will the three be able to solve his murder?
I loved the ending.
We will be seeing book 9
I highly recommend the
Hope Herring Mystery Series
J A Whiting has written another exciting series.
My favorite character is Max, he's the ghost that came with the house.
He is smart,funny and from 1800.
Oh and he was murdered also.
Read the series you won't be sorry
Do yourself a favor and start at book one. This is not a series to enter from the middle, it all matters.
