    I read this whole series over one sick day in high school I ve been trying to find copies ever since They re delightfully simple and entertaining Just cute.

    This book is good for what it is It s a cute, fun mystery with some fun twists and turns, and a nice, kind romance within it But boiled down this book is a love letter to being Jewish, to your history and your religion and your family.

    I thought I would love this book Mainly because I m a huge mystery whore and I love characters with secrets Ehhh, no.And this one had so much potential which mainly just fizzled out I loved that the characters had a strong sisterly bond and a strong Jewish identity, because I love new culture I actually really liked Colin and Sam, which was strange, because usually I hate the standard clich of a girl falling for her best friend without her knowledge, but there was some real sense of the c I thought I would love this book Mainly because I m a huge mystery whore and I love characters with secrets Ehhh, no.And this one had so much potential which mainly just fizzled out I loved that the characters had a strong sisterly bond and a strong Jewish identity, because I love new culture I actually really liked Colin and Sam, which was strange, because usually I hate the standard clich of a girl falling for her best friend without her knowledge, but there was some real sense of the closeness and friendship between Sam and Colin in the few scenes they had together, so that worked for me I felt that Rabb was better at handling the subplots which had a littlefizz and edge to them, like the developing romance between Sophie and Josh, who may or may not be Sophie s second cousin, because it got some pretty good lines like, Since Sophie had never even been on a real date before, having her first one with her cousin might be a good way to ease her into it I really liked it because they had cute chemistry and nice scenes together, but I didn t know where Rabb was going with it the unpredictability, fun farcical tone and curiosity of that subplot, though, kind of showed up how dull and standard the rest were.Unfortunately, the other strands of the plot didn t really have anything twisty or intriguing about them, which was fatal to the mystery subplot of the book This probably just comes from starting at the second book in the series it was all I could pick up at the cheap store , but I didn t really care enough with the subplot about the private investigator that Sam and Sophie s evil stepmother had hired to track them down, since I had no idea what they were running away from It was recapped in the book, but not really fleshed out enough to give me the holy crap what if they get caught feeling, so that one lacked any tension I don t need bloodshed in my mysteries to care about things like this in fact, I found it refreshing that this was a relatively light mystery but it had absolutely none of the things I like about mysteries Twists, red herrings, most of all surprises It ends up that exactly what we thought is going on is going on, and I don t mean that in a look at me I m so clever I guessed it way there is literally no other plot twists or red herrings and it just turns out that the idea Sam had about what had happened had, actually, happened Even in the big denouement, which featured Sam and Colin breaking into a gallery, didn t have the giggly tension that it should have because I didn t for one second believed that Rabb would take any risks Gus, the grumpy private detective with a heart of gold, was mostly a clich , as was Leo Shattenberg, the ancient professor and cool old guy who tracked them down to find his lost love for him I don t mind that because these familiar roles gave me a nice feel for the old fashioned noiry detective feel that Rabb had going on It s a pity that the rest of the book fell so flat and failed to maintain anything that I like about the detective genre Still, I ll probably check out the rest of the books in the series, because this one was fast and fun enough, it was just near the end when I realised that Rabb planned to pull literally no surprises, or even an attempt at a surprise that it fell flat for me

    i might have been the only person in my library who read this during the early days of ya i m dating myself, but when i was in middle school there weren t that many ya books published , and it s sad that it s hard to find a print version of this series maybe it was because the sisters are from queens and seemed like people i would know, or the fact that there was mystery in a small town kind of vibe, i really enjoyed this four book series.

  9. Angela says:

    Another good installment in this series I particularly enjoyed the possible cousins they found and the sister ,Sam ,dating him The WW2 elements are an interesting angle as well This is such a nice non murdering series for young adults and other mystery lovers The sisters do a lot of growing in this book.

    In the book the Chocolate Lover by M.E Rabb I loved the action and suspense that came with the book The case was very fun to read about my favorite part of the book was when Sam and Sophie thought that they found relitives near where they were living the whole story was very interesting after that I loved the book and I would recomend the book for anybody
