Gumshoe and the Mysterious Mushrooms by Laura Hawks is a great YA book. I am always looking for YA authors as they tend to write the best stories. Hawks does an exceptional job of grabbing and keeping my attention throughout the entire story. I cannot wait for the rest of the books in the series. Mia Thomas is having one heck of a start to her 15th year of life, the teacher needs to talk to her parents, her father gets arrested, and as if that is not enough she has an amazing ability to talk to cats. She befriends a cat, who promptly tell her his name is Gumshoe. Gumshoe and Mia try to figure out what is happening with her family. Just watch the relationship between Gumshoe and Mia. Will they find out what is going on or will there be more problems?

Gumshoe and the Mysterious Mushrooms is the first novel in the Gumshoe Mystery series by Laura Hawks. This is my first novel by this author.

On her 15th birthday, she sets out to clear her family name after her father is arrested. Her partner is a cat named Gumshoe, who is her familiar.

This was a really good novel and very refreshing. I haven’t read much in a while so I was really enjoying this funny YA cozy mystery. Gumshoe had me laughing often while reading. He is a cat that drinks coffee and wine and tries to help Mia with the investigation. What secrets will the two uncover?

From the title, one isn’t sure what to expect but this is cute read and I am excited for the next book.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book feels like Teen fiction and cozy mystery wrapped into one. Gumshoe puts me in mind of a mix of Salem and Columbo. Mia has a whole truckload of unpleasant dumped on her for her birthday but girl doesn’t miss a beat. She knows she is in one of the roughest of situations she’ll probably ever face, but she’s not going to let a trivial thing like that stop her from figuring out why her world has been turned upside down. She’ll clear her family’s name and that’s all there is to it.
I’m thrilled that this is book one because that means more!

Gumshoe and The Mysterious Mushrooms by Laura Hawks is the first book in the Gumshoe Mysteries Series. This is a fun and entertaining book with brilliant characters and a strong story line.
I was amazed by how quick I read this book. From the moment I started reading I just got lost in the story that the author was creating. Mia and Gumshoe were such a brilliant combination. If I could have a Gumshoe in my life I definitely would!
This is a strong start to a new series. Full of mystery and the perfect example of what a YA novel should be. You definitely need to give this book a try!

I had no idea what to expect when I picked up this book but the cover and synopsis drew me in and then while reading it had me hooked and I literally read this in one sitting.

It was quick, easy to read because the words flowed perfectly, clean, suspenseful, fun, and was just what I was looking for at the time. I am impressed with how this book was written, I loved everything about it and actually am figuring out how many copies I need to buy for a few of my grandchildren who I believe would love this as much as I did.

I fell in love with Gumshoe and can not wait to read more of this series. Mia was awesome and not your normal 15 year old, and I loved the ladies …Eve (Mia’s Mom), Donna, Marion, and Kelly…This was just an all around great book and I can’t recommend it enough especially if you like a good mystery.

Awesome!!

I really liked this story.

It follows Mia who is a young girl of fourteen. She helps out at her parents restaurant when people who dine there start falling ill. Then begins the adventure to find out what caused the illnesses. Was it error or were they poisoned?

Also Mia turns 15 which brings with it another load of secrets to unravel. So with the aid of her cat Gumshoe she sets out to learn who she is and what happened to the people who were ill after eating at her parents restaurant
