Summary: Who's the culprit?
Norah and Darcy are still in a fight, but crime doesn't stop just because the girls aren't speaking. Someone has set fire to their school's brand-new field house. And the prime suspect is Zane Munro, the cute boy Norah can't help crushing on.
When Zane asks Partners in Crime for help, Norah and Darcy must band together to investigate. Norah knows Zane is innocent, but the clues are not in his favor. Can she and Darcy mend their friendship, crack the case, and clear Zane's name before it's too late? (Taken from Goodreads)
Thoughts: Norah and Darcy are back to solve another mystery. This one has a more serious tone to it as there is a person injured in somebody’s arson job.
Because this is for a middle grade audience the clues are quite visible and it isn’t hard to guess the whodunits but I still found Framed & Dangerous to be a really interesting book. Kim Harrington just has a way with mysteries.
I really enjoyed this one, right before the ending it pulled me into the story and I just had to know how things would end. I had guessed at it but I was curious to see how things would be handled.
Overall, there are just so many clues in Framed & Dangerous hinting at so many different things that it was really cool guessing at which ones were right and which were wrong. I really enjoyed the story and I am curious to see if there will be a fourth book in the series.
