Gold Star Review: The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line

The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line
Rob Thomas and Jennifer Graham
Veronica Mars, book one

Ten years after graduating from high school in Neptune, California, Veronica Mars is back in the land of sun, sand, crime, and corruption. She’s traded in her law degree for her old private investigating license, struggling to keep Mars Investigations afloat on the scant cash earned by catching cheating spouses until she can score her first big case.

Now it’s spring break, and college students descend on Neptune, transforming the beaches and boardwalks into a frenzied, week-long rave. When a girl disappears from a party, Veronica is called in to investigate. But this is no simple missing person’s case; the house the girl vanished from belongs to a man with serious criminal ties, and soon Veronica is plunged into a dangerous underworld of drugs and organized crime. And when a major break in the investigation has a shocking connection to Veronica’s past, the case hits closer to home than she ever imagined.
(Description from

Picking up where the recently released movie left off (*Caution - This means Spoilers ahead!!*) this first book in the new Veronica Mars mystery series has all the smarts and sass of the original tv series.  Magic. 

Veronica has officially decided to become Neptune's next official PI. Unfortunately, Keith is none to happy about it. ..Delicious tension ensues.  Veronica gets herself into a few very sketchy spots, making everyone just a hair toohair nervous. .. she learns to use a gun and make slightly wiser choices. 

With Logan away and Veronica’s mom suddenly reentering her life,  her emotions are all over the map.  Every time she remembers why she's made this life choice,  a wrench in the works makes her doubt herself,  and yet. .. In true Veronica fashion,  by the end of the day (so to speak) she's kicking @ss, taking names,  and holding her own once again.  

I CANNOT wait for the next book.  I will follow Veronica wherever she leads!  

Gold Star. BAM.
