My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Gumshoe and the Mysterious Mushrooms is the first book in the Gumshoe Mysteries Series by Laura Hawks. This teen mystery book was a good read and held me until the very end. Today is Mia’s 15th birthday, her parents are called into the school to speak to her teacher and then her father is arrested. Then out of nowhere a cat shows up and starts talking to her! Instead of getting upset, she sets out with her new found friend to help her family and spare the family name. But now the only question is, will her snooping help her or be the end of Mia? You must read this to find out and I will say you WILL NOT be disappointed.

This is my first read by this author and it will not be my last. I found the story line strong, characters I adored, and a plot that held me till the end. Mia and Gumshoe really wormed their way into my heart and I cannot wait to read more in this series! 4 stars and highly recommended.

Gumshoe And The Mysterious Mushrooms (Gumshoe Mysteries Book 1)
By Laura Hawks

Gumshoe And the Mysterious Mushrooms is book one in the Gumshoe Mysteries by Laura Hawks. Ok so I struggled a little with this book, but it was by no fault of the author as this book has been written perfectly. While this is not for me the younger audience are absolutely going to love it, they will also love the pace this book moves at. The book is centred around a 15-year-old girl by the name of Mia Thomas. Not only does Mia’s teacher need to speak to her parents, her father gets arrested and she makes friends with a cat named Gumshoe. If that isn’t enough, she has the knack of talking to and understanding cats. Mia and Gumshoe join forces to try and work out what on earth is going on with her family. Will they find out what is behind her fathers arrest? And what lays before them while they try and work out the issues.

This book was great! It was about a 15 year old named Mia and her familiar Gumshoe. Mia was a fantastic MC! She is bright and spunky and kind of adorable. Gumshoe is something else that’s for sure. He is a loud, coffee drinking, obnoxious cat that helps Mia solve mysteries! They have to careful though, because the case they’re on right now might be Mia’s last one if she doesn’t watch her back! She might be able to solve the mystery BUT being able to stay alive is going to be hard…
This one was a great teen read and I would like to read more by this author!

The story Joined: Book One by Mara Gan is a YA/Science Fiction/Romance book. It is a story that pulls you in from the very beginning and doesn’t let you go until that final page. I loved the storyline and also the characters. The main female character is independent, strong, intelligent, and stubborn. She has a bodyguard that is overbearing and very protective of her. She also is finding herself with an attraction to him. The bodyguard is determined to keep her safe. He also feels the pull of an attraction to her. Read this book for their full story. This is a book that has action, danger, and romance. There are times when I was turning pages wondering what was going to happen next. There are other times when I was getting caught up in the romance between the main characters. This is a story that hooks you in and keeps your interest all the way through. It is a story that I would highly recommend reading.

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.
