Goodreads Synopsis:

GOLDIE VANCE IS ON THE CASE

Sixteen-year-old Marigold “Goldie” Vance has an insatiable curiosity. She lives at a Florida resort with her dad, who manages the place, and it’s her dream to one day be the hotel’s in-house detective. When Walter, the current detective, encounters a case he can’t crack, together they utilize her smarts, skills, and connections to solve the mystery…even if it means getting into a drag race, solving puzzles, or chasing a helicopter to do it!

Review:

I loved this graphic novel! I wish I had read it sooner!

Goldie Vance reminded me a lot of Nancy Drew. However, Goldie has more nerve than Nancy. Goldie doesn’t think twice about breaking the rules in order to solve a mystery. In this book she even stole, or “borrowed,” a car in order to recover a stolen item.

There was a lot going on in the story around Goldie as well. She had to deal with her parents, who are divorced. Her father was always running around working at the same hotel with Goldie, and he didn’t seem to have much time for her unless she was doing something wrong. She also had a few friends who helped Goldie solve her mysteries. All of her friends were going on dates, but Goldie didn’t, so I’m wondering if she will have more of a romantic storyline in the future volumes.

I’m really excited to continue this series. This is a great start to the story!
