Mixed feelings about this one. On the positive side, it continued the series well, retained a great sense of the characters involved, and dealt well with past history influencing current events. The story was good, although I guessed the culprit quite quickly, without perhaps knowing all the details of how and why.
On the flip side, some of the more negative aspects that have been easier to overlook in the previous two books were a bit too obvious. It felt slightly rushed and could perhaps have done with a bit more editing. The main issue, I think, is a propensity to spell out the obvious, or “tell” instead of “show”, particularly in the middle of conversations which breaks the dialogue somewhat.
Overall though, I still enjoyed the book and I’m keen to read more adventures of Jessica and her friends.
