Bella Kirkwood is back in “So Over My Head”(Book 3 A Charmed Life series). If you thought the first two books were wild(in which case she almost lost her life in both), then get ready for the Fritz Family Carnival where a murder occurs and Bella is truly in over head in this one as she tries to solve this one and adjust to her father marrying another woman And if that is not enough,Bella's boyfriend Luke Sullivan’s ex girlfriend is back in town and she has a few things on her mind for Bella- namely to stay away from Luke.
As always, Jones makes Bella into this teenager that we can all identify with, except that she is so extremely jealous of Luke’s ex, she allows it to push her away from him but at the same time,she always questions about his girlfriend, mentioning her every time they speak and it gets annoying because aloofness is so not Bella’s trait but would be nice to see.
Bella’s dad is getting married and so Bella must investigate this young woman who all of a sudden stole his heart. Why is she trying to speed up the wedding? Does her dad know who this woman truly is? And what about her mom? Can she handle Jake’s wrestling schedule as he leaves her home all the time with the kids? Will Bella ever get her head above all this?
A Charmed Life series is very charming with riots of laughter, family drama, and mystery all in one. How Jones does it, who knows- but the book earned four stars for those elements. Loses a star for Twilight similarities as far as Bella’s name and the few references to Twilight in the pages.
Other than that, it is such a good book with believable, unforgettable characters.
