Goldie Vance: The Hocus-Pocus Hoax
Introducing Goldie Vance, part-time detective! Goldie is excited about the newest event being hosted at the Crossed Palms Resort, the League of Magical Arts Convention. She sees this as the perfect opportunity to make new friends and solve exciting mysteries. Goldie also has big plans for her first date with Diane, her crush.
The only blot on the occasion is Derek Von Thurston, the son of one of the most famous magicians. Goldie finds him more than a little bit annoying, but he becomes an asset in solving the resort’s newest mystery: some of the magicians’ most valuable props are going missing! Goldie knows this is more than simple misplacement; this is sabotage! Can Goldie and her friends uncover this tricky fiend before all the acts are ruined, along with the magicians’ reputations?
I liked this book’s charm and humor, along with the characters. I had a great time reading along with Goldie as she solved clue after clue and was pleased with the big reveal at the end! It was fun for me to mentally run through who might have done it, and I will definitely be reading more Goldie Vance books!
