Volume 2 of Goldie Vance continues to be an adorable series with a fun cast of characters. Goldie's best friend, Cheryl gets greater focus this time around with her connection to the new mystery revealing a couple secrets she'd been keeping from Goldie. Their friendship gets challenged a bit in this book, but their love for one another is never in question. The two of them are a good team.
There wasn't as much of Diane as I would have liked, but the little bits we saw of her and Goldie together were too cute. I wouldn't mind the next mystery being connected to Diane so there will be more of her.
Goldie's mom played a bigger role this time around, and she is pretty fantastic. She works as a mermaid and wants Goldie to spend some quality mermaid time together. Their dynamic was sweet and funny. And I loved how she helped Goldie out with the mystery.
It really is the cast that makes this such a fun series. Goldie is a fun and clever protagonist, and she's surrounded by a diverse group of friends and family that each bring something different to the table when it comes to assisting with the mystery solving. This series is a blast to read.
