VMars Cover The Thousand Dollar Tan LineHello, fellow marshmallows! Let’s talk about the first novel in what shall hopefully be a long-running book series.

Set a couple of months after the movie, Veronica Mars: The Thousand Dollar Tan Line begins with the mysterious disappearance of young spring breaker Hayley Dewalt. Veronica is hired to find the missing girl, but the mystery in Neptune has only just begun, and Veronica will be facing another more personal demon before she solves this one.

The Thousand Dollar Tan Line reads like a centralized extended episode, much like the style of the movie, which isn’t a bad thing. We see Veronica butt heads with Keith, super sleuth with Wallace, miss Logan while connecting over the airwaves, and trade witty comebacks with Mac.

Readers are treated with another reintroduction to a character that was heavily featured in “Weapons of Class Destruction” (Season 1, Episode 18). Norris Clayton, ladies and gents, is a Sheriff’s deputy, and he seems to be another honest employee of the Department. Here’s hoping that we see him again in the next novel!

Not only does The Thousand Dollar Tan Line read like a tried and true Veronica Mars mystery with twists and turns, double crosses and misdirects, but we get to delve deeper into the psyche of an older but not always wiser Veronica.

She’s still a marshmallow. She’s still a fiery defender of justice. She’s still the Veronica Mars who¬†we’ve been missing.

The second novel, Veronica Mars: Mr. Kiss and Tell, will be released on October 28, 2014.
