Gumshoe And The Mysterious Mushrooms (Gumshoe Mysteries Book 1) by Laura Hawks – Review by Emma Morreale

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!

5 Stars

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

I give Gumshoe And The Mysterious Mushrooms (Gumshoe Mysteries Book 1) by Laura Hawks, 5 stars.

Mia is a typical teen in high school, she has her own group of friends and she has one main passion – cooking. She’s pretty good at it too, good enough to help her parents put at their soon to open restaurant. Plus, on her 15th birthday, her dad gets arrested and she starts being able to talk with a cat! Can said cat (he says he goes by Gumshoe) help her figure out the mystery behind her dad’s arrest or is everything doomed?

This is a great book! I am leery or YA books because I read too many that don’t appeal to me simply because I am long past that age. After reading the description, I had to pick this book up. Mia is absolutely great. She is level headed and really cares about her family and friends. She does all she can for those in her community. Then there is Gumshoe. I can’t say I’ve met a character like him and I am totally in love with him! The story too is quite interesting. You never really know exactly who is behind it or why until the very end. I like mysteries that keep me guessing. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series!

If you like supernatural mysteries with a great teen lead character, this book is for you.

Gumshoe and the Mysterious Mushrooms by Laura Hawks

4 Stars!!!!

I just love to find new authors. This book was such a great short summer read. I just couldn’t put the book down. I was drawn into the book and felt as though I was right in the middle of it all.

I really liked Mia’s character. I really like books that are paranormal and especially ones with cats. Gumshoe is a very interesting familiar. I like how the author unfolds the story and I found this book to be a refreshing change from my regular genre. I will definitely be reading more from this author in the future.

This was such an enjoyable read, I really enjoyed every minute of it! I do sometimes like to read a YA book, I find them really easy to read and whilst I love angst I also enjoy just a nice simple story that and that’s exactly what I got with this story. It was so refreshing to read – I loved the unique storyline (and who wouldn’t love a story with a talking cat in it?!?) and I really enjoyed getting to know Mia and following her story. For 15 I thought she was a really rounded character, she was kind hearted but had an air of determination about her which I liked. There were some great twists in the story and I enjoyed trying to guess what was going to happen – would Mia finally uncover the mystery surrounding her family?
This isn’t the first book that I have read by this author but I think it may be my favourite so far! I thought that this was a really engaging story and I am really looking forward to reading more from the series!

What a wonderful start to a series! This team mystery was intriguing and full of which detail. I loved the characters and especially loved that one of them was a cat with a sassy sense of humor. I found myself laughing out loud as I read the pages. It kept me engaged in guessing as to what would happen next. A fantastic start to the series. I cannot wait to see how the author continues the series in the next book.
