You Again is a romance/mystery set in Salt Lake City, Utah. Allie is a single mom who teaches English at a local Catholic high school. The discovery of a body of a teacher who disappeared over 15 years ago found on school property has the close knit community reeling. Jackson Williams was a beloved teacher of Allie's when she attended the same school she teaches at now. She decides to put together a video memorial for the teacher she idolized. But foul play soon becomes apparent and Allie decides she's going to figure out what happens. However an old crush of hers turns up back in town right around the same time and they quickly turn into a Lois and Clark duo.

There are quite of few things I enjoyed about this book. The mystery part of the story line was pretty strong. I really love being able to follow the clues as a book progresses and try my own guess at who our killer is. I wasn't sure in this one, there seemed to be several people who fit the bill. It seems although Allie loved Mr. Williams there were some who disagreed with that assessment. The romance part of the book wasn't as strong. However I really did enjoy the progression between Allie and Sam. At times it seemed Allie was being pretty childish in how she was handling certain situations with Sam. And Sam wasn't able to trust Allie even though he really had no reason not to. But overall it wasn't bad.

I think if you're looking for some interesting, not scary or gory, light romance this is a good choice for you. I gave it 3.5 stars because Allie and Sam's connection didn't seem that deep to me and the mystery was pretty straight forward. The book was pretty solid though.
