Stalking the Stalker is the second book in the Valley View Mystery series by Laura Hawks. I have really enjoyed my time with this book. It has a great twisty whodunit quality to the mystery, with suspense, drama, intrigue, and more. The ‘stalker’ element of the story gave it an added intrigue, whilst the cleverly crafted mystery kept me guessing.
As always, Ms. Hawks drew me into her book and held my attention right through till the end. I was so caught up in the story that I read it in one sitting. I liked that it was a little different from her other books, but done with the same well-written, tight, and detailed style.

Gumshoe and the Mysterious Mushrooms is the first book in the Gumshoe Mysteries series by Laura Hawks. I was taken with this book the moment I laid eyes on the beautiful cover- and as I had read several of Ms. Hawks’ books before, and had really enjoyed them, getting this one was a no-brainer.
It is a YA mystery, with is a paranormal elements, action, adventure, humour, fun, and a bit of whimsy. The story was intriguing, even though it was a little predictable in parts, and even though it is targeted towards younger readers- I still really enjoyed it.
The characters are well developed, fully realised, quirky, and entirely interesting. This is a very original, fun, quick, and easy read- it has a pretty fast pace and a smooth flow- which enabled me to devour the book very quickly.
Ms. Hawks has always intrigued me with her clever storylines, and this story was no different. I loved meeting Mia, but particularly Gumshoe- who really stole the show.
My favourite of Ms. Hawks’ books, so far!
Thank you, Ms. Hawks!
