Move over Nancy, Harriet, & Veronica. There's a new sleuth on the block!
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 does have its moments. And I like the art style.
This was a little out there in some aspects, but I enjoyed it a lot. I was never really into Nancy Drew, or the Hardy Boys, growing up, but sometimes a nice mystery is just what I need. Goldie is a great main character, and I really like the supporting cast as well. I can't wait to see more from this group! In fact, I reserved the next couple volumes to read ASAP. I'm giving this 4.5 out of 5 stars.
