And Then Everything Unraveled is a great little read, perfect for summer vacations. At first I excepted it to be a light romance/mystery mix, but this book defiantly went a bit deeper than that. In fact, I was rather thrilled to read something new, something that was based on a much bigger scale, and not just a simple disappearance. In anticipation, you watch as Delia uncovers clues, love, and danger all at once; there is never a boring moment!
Delia was a courageous spunky protagonist and I really enjoyed her aunt Charley's humor. There was a colorful array of characters and a variety of settings which made the book even more fun to read. The only part (which was still a small part) I didn't care for was when the physic told Delia some things about her mother's disappearance. I thought it took away a lot from the mystery and cut some corners. Despite that one little flaw, did I enjoyed the added scenes about Quinn and his family; I think it gave the mystery an even greater appeal to it-especially when it came with a few stunning surprises. Overall, And Then Everything Unraveled was a great read-couldn't put it down–it left me dying for a sequel!
