Goodreads Synopsis:

Nancy who? Goldie Vance is on the case! The adventures of the teen sleuth continue in this second volume of the hit comic book series.

The adventures of Goldie Vance, teen super sleuth, continue in the second volume of this hit comic adventure. Collects issues #5-8 of the series.

Sixteen-year-old Marigold “Goldie” Vance lives at a Florida resort with her dad, who manages the place. Her mom, who divorced her dad years ago, works as a live mermaid at a club downtown. Goldie has an insatiable curiosity, which explains her dream to one day become the hotel’s in-house detective. When Charles, the current detective, encounters a case he can’t crack, he agrees to mentor Goldie in exchange for her help solving the mystery.

Eisner Award-winning writer Hope Larson (A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel) and artist Brittney Williams (Patsy Walker, A.K.A Hellcat!) present the newest gal sleuth on the block with Goldie Vance, an exciting, whodunnit adventure.


This is the second book in the Goldie Vance series.

I didn’t like this book as much as the first one. The mystery that Goldie had to solve was anticlimactic. She investigated a girl who washed up on the beach in an astronaut suit. The story started off exciting with the discovery of the astronaut, but I didn’t really understand the ending.

Goldie’s friend, Cheryl, wants to be an astronaut, so she was very excited when she saw the astronaut girl. One thing I didn’t understand was the connection that Goldie found between Cheryl and the mystery girl. They both competed in beauty pageants. I’m not sure why this storyline seemed to disappear by the end of the story, because it was an interesting clue, but it didn’t seem to lead anywhere.

I hope the mystery is better in the next volume.

What to read next:
