The new exhibit at the Philadelphia children's museum, Let's Play, isn't meant to be shocking - but when one of the installers is zapped with a fatal electrical charge, it's up to Nell to put her detective skills on display.

"Fun and entertaining"
This was a quick read. Meg keeps getting pulled in to a mystery at another museum while trying to run her own museum. The plot and characters are realistic. The pacing of the story was quick and kept me interested. It was a good book.
"Interesting Setting and No Cats"
I like cats. However, it seems to me that many cozy mystery series feature a protagonist who has cats. I read and enjoy some of those series. However, it is refreshing to find a series in which the protagonist does not have cats.
Nell Pratt has recently been promoted to Director of a museum in Philadelphia. I like Nell.
And I find her work, as described in this book, interesting. This is the second book of this series. The action picks up a month or two after the events in the first book. The "back story" is briefly explained in the second book. I believe a reader could enjoy this book without reading the first one.
The pace of this book is moderate. The mystery is not especially complex. What I enjoy about this book is the day to day events of Nell's life. Two unique new characters are introduced; I believe they will add interest in future books.
This is an easy going book with no graphic sex, violence or language. I don't find it as compelling as some of my favorite authors. However, I plan to read the next entry in the series because I look forward to more time with Nell.
"The Best for Last"
I think Sheila saved the best for last. I can just see the exhibits and they are adorable. I can relate to the daughter as well. A very good "read."
