Tuesday Mooney Wore Black
by Kate Racculia
Tuesday Mooney is my kind of girl, she would be my alter ego given half a chance. Tuesday is very much a person who likes to keep herself to herself, and is a bit of a loner but when she attends a charirty event and meets the wealthy, eccentric Vicent Pryce – who subsequently dies and posthumously announces that part of his fortune will go to the winner of a Boston-wide scavenger hunt, she gets a little excited! Tuesday is a researcher and this scavenger hunt is right up her street, and teamed with her best friend Dex, teenager neighbor, Dorry and several others she does everything she can to be the winner.
This was a fun read with plenty of twists, turns and red herrings that kept me guessing until the end, it did start off a little slow for me, but once I got going I started to fly through the pages.
