Girl Can’t Help It brings together an aging rock band for a reunion and a place in the Iowa Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Unfortunately, it also brings a murderer to the party.
I had no idea that there was any rock and roll history in Iowa. So that was interesting. I’ve been around bands much of my life and the band dynamics and backstage hubbub are true to my experience. Maybe it is because of my prior knowledge that I found Girl Can’t Help It’s pace glacially slow (even boring at times). The mystery itself was challenging. Plus, I liked the detective and her father’s relationship. 3 stars.
Thanks to Thomas & Mercer and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
