Veronica Mars: The Thousand Dollar Tan Line

The Thousand Dollar Tan Line is the first book in the book series based on the Veronica Mars television show written by creator Rob Thomas and Jennifer Graham.

Stop right there, bibliophile.

Have you watched all three seasons of Veronica Mars? Have you watched the recent Veronica Mars movie?

If your answer is no to one or both questions – get on that ASAP.

Veronica Mars
is one of my favorite TV shows and the kickstarter campaign that funded the movie follow-up seven YEARS after its cancellation is a clear indication I’m not alone in that.

Anywho, this book takes place after the latest movie – in other words you will spoil awesome, heart wrenching binge Veronica Mars viewing if you read this before you do the aforementioned binge watching.

Only those of who who’ve seen everything to date on Veronica Mars, continue –

Back in Neptune, California ten years after graduating, Veronica is pursuing a much different career path than she’s been working towards for the last many years.

Despite her high-priced law degree, Veronica is sitting behind a desk at Mars Investigations, ready to jump back in to private investigating – something she seems to have an unhealthy addiction to.

But, hey, if it makes her happy, right?

If only her Dad would agree.

Just when Veronica begins to wonder if a big case will come along to help pay the bills – one does.

During the wild, drunken Spring Break revelries a girl disappears from a party and Veronica is called to investigate as tourism begins plummeting – oh the beauty of Neptune’s priorities.

Quickly realizing this is not a simple missing person’s case, Veronica finds herself thrust into a dangerous world of organized crime and a shocking connection to her past.

Well, this is what she signed up for…

I am a Marshmallow. Absolutely, posi – toot – ly!

Thrilled to find out there would be Veronica Mars BOOKS penned in part by the creator himself, well – I was very excited!!! So far I’ve heard of two books to be published in total – but I can’t help but hope for more!

I loved returning to Neptune!! As I read The Thousand Dollar Tan Line I could hear Veronica’s voice and see all of the characters faces – it felt just like a longer, extended episode of Veronica Mars and it made me very, very happy.
The Thousand Dollar Tan Line was exciting, fun and interesting with shocks and twists. Wow!

Exhilarating to read, The Thousand Dollar Tan Line made me wonder if we Marshmallow’s will EVER have enough of Veronica Mars?!

I loved it – it was awesome.

‘Nuff said.
