Goldie Vance Vol. 2, Hope Larson & Brittney Williams
If you’re a fan of lighthearted mysteries with a cast of wonderfully diverse characters and you’re not keeping up with Goldie Vance then you’re seriously missing out. Sixteen-year-old Super Sleuth, Marigold “Goldie” Vance, lives with her father at the Florida resort he manages. Goldie’s a valet there, but when she’s not busy parking fancy sports cars (or daydreaming about drag racing them) she can usually be found solving mysteries not even the hotel’s in-house detective can crack.
In Volume Two of Goldie Vance, Goldie and her BFF Cheryl stumble across a mysterious lady-astronaut washed up on the beach. Who is she? Where did she come from? Why is the FBI suddenly interested in the case? And what on earth could she possibly want with Cheryl? These are all questions Goldie faces as she races against the clock to crack the case.
