Skating on the Edge is the third, and by far the most heart racing, novel of the quirky mystery series penned by Joelle Charbonneau. The series so far has perfectly portrayed the fun of owning a roller skating rink in a small gossipy town, but this round, readers get a deeper look into of the heart of Rebecca Robbins.
The previous novel, Skating Over the Line, features the first appearance of the roller derby team, EstroGenocide. In Skating on the Edge, one of their own is murdered and the rumors floating around say it should've been Rebecca. Armed with a list of potential suspects, Rebecca takes the initiative to find the murderer while attempting to put her life back in order. Well, in as much order as possible with an Elvis-impersonating grandfather, scheming, sneaky father, and maid of honor duties.
Charbonneau really knows how to work with mysteries in small towns, where everyone knows everyone and gossip is the number one source for entertainment. Her ability liven up the story and keep it going while Rebecca struggles to solve the murder case, an element found in all three mysteries in this series, is commendable and a highly favorable trait of her writing style.
After reading the crazy events of this novel, readers who haven't fallen for Rebecca Robbins will do so quickly and surely. Skating on the Edge will blow you over with a fun, fabulous plot, and anticipation of what could possibly come next!
