I was sent a copy of this book to review by the author.

The author of this book approached me following Bout of Books and asked me if I would be interested in reviewing. After hearing the description, I decided that the story sounded unique enough that my interest was peaked, so I decided that I would take a stab at it. I was not disappointed.

Heiress, PI is kind of like Veronica Mars meets Encyclopedia Brown, with a huge celebrity twist.

Inspired by a true event, this story asks the question, what if your favorite teen celebrity really was a private investigator?

Lucy Hansen is the heiress to a huge hotel conglomerate, and yet her family has a dark, hidden secret, a hidden past that could destroy everything.

I found myself reading through this one pretty quickly, sucked into the drama and the action and the little bit of romance that was thrown in there, too. I actually got a kind of Princess Diaries feel when I got to the section where she is holed up with her grandmother, as well. Not sure why, but it kind of reminded me of that.

Overall, it is well written with few editing missteps and I felt that the few that were there were easily overlooked. I couldn't even remember where they were right now without going back and re-reading to look for them, which is high praise from me, the editing and grammar nazi, as I have been called by an author or two.

The ending left me hanging on the edge, wanting to know what would be coming next. I really want to know more about these characters and find out where the story leads. If you want a young adult read that is different from the paranormal and fantasy that seems to have proliferated the genre, this is the book for you. ( )
