confessions the private school murdersTandoori Angel and her siblings were drugged and pushed into being high-achieving children by their parents.   Book #1 had them suspected of their parent’s murder until Tandy proved otherwise.  Now Tandy’s football star brother is on trial for murdering his actress girlfriend; deadly snakes and spiders are infesting their building; someone is killing girls who go to private school; and she’s remembering the boy she fell in love with before her parents gave her electro-shock therapy to forget him.  Tandy decides someone has to solve these mysteries and she’s the girl for the job.

I really enjoyed this book, the story was addictive and the short chapters were attention grabbing and easy to read.  I really liked the relationships between the Angel siblings and how they stick together.  With Jacob, the ex Israeli commando / bodyguard / babysitter, they finally have rules, structure, and someone who cares what they do and it’s cute to see the dynamic of the Angel clan change.

Having not read the first, I found it easy to follow what had gone on and now am searching for the first, while looking forward to the next.  The ending wasn’t a cliff-hanger, but a new life beckons and a plot against Tandy is unresolved.
