The style of this book was a departure from the pattern of the first three, which was refreshing at first, but then dragged a bit toward the end. Instead of Rachel's hometown Cincinnati, this book takes place in Mackinaw, Michigan, which I loved! Michigan is my home state and I have to admit that I have not read too many books that take place there, especially in Mackinaw, where I went at least once every summer growing up! I did also love the deeper investigations into the characters such as Jenks who Rachel spelled to life-size and Nick, who it turns out is a creep and a lying thief. I'm not sure if this book was as spectacular as Every Which Way but Dead but I have high hopes for the rest of the series and can't wait to keep reading!
