I always enjoy a good story and the Kiki Lowenstein series was a fun serial read. I read the lot, finishing up with the latest and got o know Kiki and her troops quite well. I've gone right through her romance with Chad Detweiler and pregnancy, which had to be one of the longest ever recorded in a series! LOL I really relate to Brawny the Nanny and was righteously in her corner in that sticky situation a book or so ago. I just love Gracie and the other animals in the series as to my mind, a book is not satisfying unless there are at least one or two animals. Of course, I belong to the - "I don't care who gets killed in the movie (or book) as long as the dog lives!" school of thought.
However, I digress. I have never looked at scrapbooking and was quite intrigued to find a whole series with this craft as the mainstay plot. Of course, Kiki gets involved in crime and this latest one is well crafted as are they all. Someone has been encouraging the pupils of Jarvis School to commit suicide and there are some disturbing aspects to the motivation behind this which are all too real.
Congratulations to the author for her excellent series and I greatly admire her stamina in keeping it consistent and fresh. Expecting and hoping that Ms Slan is currently working her fingers to bone typing the next one, where - surely - Thelma has to bite the dust!

Quite a good storyReviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 September 2019
I always enjoy Kiki stories and I love the characters. However I was disappointed by a few things. Firstly this kindle book was very badly edited, many words ran together. Secondly, near the end we got to Sunday evening and then Sunday morning started again. I thought the story ended very abruptly. Also, Kiki always seems to have a female antagonist, Mert, her Mum, now Thelma. It gets a little repetitive
ExcellentReviewed in the United Kingdom on 23 June 2021
A complex cyber plot and suiciding teens send Kiki behind the lines of a high school and into real danger of her poisonous mother-in-law’s machinations. The author gives the impression of not being terribly cyber/l33t (you don’t reverse the b by using a 6 - they’re the same way round!) but still makes sense of what has happened. A good stand alone book.
Excellent book !Reviewed in Canada on 11 June 2020
The characters are well defined. Kiki I wonderful , compassionate and caring. I want her nanny. They both dealt with the mother in law from hell, without decimating her. The mystery was scary, and well written. Highly recommend this book, either as a stand alone, as I rush to by the rest of the series.

Many editing errors spoiled the reading experience.Reviewed in the United States on 21 September 2019
I have enjoyed the entire Kiki Lowenstein series very much. Her characters feel like they're friends of mine. The plot of this story is excellent and timely, the dialog is natural, BUT the many proofreading, editing, and formatting errors somewhat spoiled the reading experience for me. Incorrect words are used, such as imminently instead of eminently. Words are jammed together with no spacing between them. Some words are broken into pieces. No spaces follow the periods at the ends of sentences. I hope the author will hire a good proofreader who has a strong vocabulary and a professional editor who will clean up the text and make it readable so that future editions won't be such a struggle to decipher.

very bad editingReviewed in the United States on 17 September 2019
I love these books but could not read this one as words were run together, spacing after sentences was non existent, paragraphs were not correct etc etc. I just got disgusted and read the ending so I could go on to something else.
