Down The Rabbit Hole
**** 4 Star
Ingrid is in the wrong place at the wrong time. Or at least her shoes are. And getting them back will mean getting tangled up in a murder investigation as complicated as the mysteries solved by her idol, Sherlock Holmes. With soccer practice, schoolwork, and the lead role in her town's production of Alice In Wonderland, Ingrid is swamped. But as things in Echo Falls keep getting curiouser and curiouser, Ingrid realizes she must solve the murder on her own-before it's too late.
This book was really good, with quirky romance, the idolizing of an old detective, and a twist on Alice In Wonderland. But in the book, when Ingrid finally finds out the truth about the murder, the ending is a little muddled. You know who the criminal is, but you don't know exactly how the whole crime came to be, what the murderer exactly did. Which is a big part in most mysteries, also about half way through the book, you already knew who the murderer was, it wasn't a shock. Sometimes, the characters would go on, and on, until the dialogue of each character, was more of a monologue. Other than that, the story had a great mystery and the author made you hate the bad characters, and love the good guys. So if your looking for a good mystery, I recommend this one.
