Stars: 5 out of 5
Pros: Great characters, puzzling mystery
Cons: The final book in the series
The Bottom Line:
Tatum one last time
With a mystery that's great
Wish it didn't end
The Twins are Still Going Strong in Their Final Mystery
Double Date is the fifth, and unfortunately final, book in the Tatum twins mystery series. It features forty-year-old identical twins
Nan and Bert Tatum, named after the older pair of the
Bobbsey Twins, but otherwise no relation. The series is written by a pair of
identical twins, which provides an added insight into these character's lives.
This book takes the mystery solving twins through yet another harrowing adventure. The twin authors have once again provided plenty of suspense and laughs, and I could hardly put the book down. The "gimmick" of alternating first person narration in alternating chapters continues to be an asset, helping with both character and plot development. By this point in the series, we know the characters so well that the it's easy to remember who is writing which chapter, not that I ever had too difficult a time with the first book.
