I didn’t know for certain if the day would ever come. But it has! I have finally just finished reading the final installment of the “Serena Jones Mystery” series. It was another breathless adventure full of questions waiting to be answered and untold dangers. But more than that, readers will at last find the answer to the biggest mystery of the series: Tanner or Nate?
Sandra Orchard has once again penned a can’t-put-it-down mystery novel, made even better by humor that even a Royal Guardsman would have to crack a smile at. I could not help but laugh out loud at many of the lines found in “Over Maya Dead Body”, and for those of you who have already read the book, I’m sure you will agree with me when I mention Serena’s revelation about the plant found in her apartment?
Obviously, a huge part of the storyline in “Over Maya Dead Body” is Serena’s choice over her two possible romantic interests. With that fact does come a bit of inappropriateness scattered throughout… perhaps to a slightly larger degree than we’ve seen in the previous two books. Still, nothing is so terrible that I would discourage you from reading this book. It’s redeeming qualities far outshine it’s faults.
So now on to the big question… WHO did Serena choose?! Well, are you sure you want me to tell you? Alright then, she chose… nope, can’t do it! You will simply have to read the book and find out for yourself. But I will say this: she chose right. I just wish that this wasn’t yet goodbye. If only we could read more about Serena, Aunt Martha, Tanner, Nate and the rest of the quirky clan from Zoe to Malgucci – but I suppose all good things must come to an end… even the “Serena Jones Mystery” series.
