4 Stars: I Really Liked It

Newly single, stalked by a killer, and in desperate need of some chic clown shoes–Bella is one skinny mocha frapp away from total meltdown. When the Fritz Family Carnival makes its annual appearance in Truman, Bella’s keen reporter instincts tell her the bright lights hide more than they reveal. Her suspicions are confirmed when one of the stars is murdered. Though the police make an immediate arrest, Bella doubts this case is quite that simple. She needs her crime-solving boyfriend, Luke, more than ever. Problem is, his ex-girlfriend has moved back to town, giving Bella some murderous thoughts of her own. Then again, there’s no time for a relationship crisis when Bella’s doing her best to derail her father’s wedding and stay one step ahead of a killer. Is God sending her a message in all of this madness? With a murderer on the loose and her boyfriend’s ex on the prowl, this undercover clown has never had more to juggle–or more to risk.

My Thoughts:
Another hilarious read in this super fun series. Bella found herself part of the circus… literally… LOL. She was so focused on solving a murder that happened at the circus that she decided to join up as a clown. Ruthie was a fun sidekick this time, but she came across ditzy unlike just tough in the other book. I liked the murder mystery part of the story. Definitely intriguing.

The relationship part of the story was annoying. I couldn’t figure Luke out! What was the deal?! But I did eventually realize how much Bella needed to grow and work through.  She also wasn’t happy about her Dad wanting to remarry.

This was a fun read with lots of mystery and a great end to the series! If you like funny, clean, contemporary YA fiction you’d love this series.
