Gumshoe And The Mysterious Mushrooms (Gumshoe Mysteries Book 1) by Laura Hawks was an intriguing original read, that kept me flipping the pages.
The first book in what I believe is going to be a crazily outstanding series, we are taken on a mysterious adventure with a talking cat and a teen who learns that her life and what she believe isn’t all that true. As YA is my guilty pleasure, when I seen this quirky read pop up I had to grab it, and man oh man, I’m so happy I did.
Fresh, gripping and pulling, this book dug its claws in right away. I didn’t really know what I was getting into, but in a few short seconds, I knew I made the right choice. For a 15 year old, Mia is something else. Normally I have loads of problems with YA MC’s, but not with Mia. She’s strong, resilient, and sets a clear gold of what needs to be done. Gumshoe, he’s the perfect match, and I want a talking sassy cat. That cat really brought this story together in that unique way, and Mia, with her awesomeness, push this story forward into something amazing.
On a whole this book is worth your time, energy, and it gets my super high recommendation and my golden stamp of approval.
