So Over My Head by Jenny B. Jones
"Jenny hits another home run with the third and final installment of the A Charmed Life series."
I couldn't wait for this review copy to arrive at my front door so I could read about Bella Kirkwood and her adventures in Oklahoma. So Over My Head starts two weeks after the Prom ended in the last book. Bella prides herself as being a Nancy Drew kind of gal. Fellow students seek her talents when they have a mystery to solve.
I couldn't help but get the feeling I was watching a Scooby-doo episode as I read about Bella Kirkwood and Luke chase down possible suspects in a murder mystery at the circus. Bella was at the circus writing an article for the school newspaper when she discovered a body with a knife in it.
Luke, the editor of the school newspaper, tells Bella to stop writing the circus article. It's just too dangerous. But, since Bella cooled things with Luke on the personal level and it was back to business as usual, she didn't think she should take his advice. This was her story and she was not going to be scooped out of it.
Bella's stepdad, Jake, has hit the big time on the wrestling circuit and goes on the road to follow his dream. Bella's mom is unhappy and puts her dreams on hold so her husband can chase his. Meanwhile, Bella's dad has found true love; Bella thinks otherwise. She will use her super sleuth skills to get to the bottom of her dad's fiance. There was more to this woman than her dad could see. There was more than love on that woman's mind and Bella would prove it.
Jenny hits another home run with the third and final installment of the A Charmed Life series. She has created an over the top believable story with Bella tracking town leads to uncover the murder mystery before it's too late. Treat yourself to one of Jenny's books. She creates a fun, witty and tender story that will warm your heart. Get ready for another amusing adventure with Bella Kirkwood. You'll be entertained, giggle and learn something that will catch you by surprise. I highly recommend this book for young readers, but I can also recommend it for all ages. I can't wait to read the next book Jenny B. Jones writes - no matter what audience she is targeting. I know that it will be worth my time and money!
