It’s the summer after her junior year. Rachael (along with Francine) is housesitting and working at a little gallery and, in typical Rachael O’Brien style, crazy things happen. This includes finding a murdered man, a visit from Rachael’s mom, a visit from Rachael’s dad’s girlfriend (who has some insane news), and a witch doctor lady.
This sixth book in the Rachael O’Brien series was definitely not my favorite. It seemed to flounder and not really know where to go since the previous books’ arc is over. Just when it could have gotten truly interesting we suddenly fast forwarded a couple weeks. I really think Swamp Cabbage is not a necessary read for Rachael fans and could be skipped.
