The first book in an exciting new middle grade mystery series from actress, artist, and social star Hayley LeBlanc!

In Hayley Mysteries: The Haunted Studio, when Hayley is cast as the lead in a Nancy Drew like kids TV show, strange things start happening around the studio and she becomes a real-life sleuth. Hayley needs YOU to help her solve a terrifying ghost mystery in this fun-filled, action-packed story. Plus, get a behind-the-scenes look at what it's like to be an actress IRL!

When Hayley gets the lead role in a new TV show called Sadie Solves It, she's so excited...even if there are rumors of hauntings surrounding the Silver Screen Studios. It's LA, she thinks—there are ghost stories everywhere!

But to her surprise, strange things actually start happening as production ramps up. Lights flicker, cold blasts of air come out of nowhere, and one day the electricity is cut to the studio entirely with no clear cause. Can Hayley and her two best friends solve the mystery of the haunted studio...before it means curtains for their show?

This book is. Fine. It’s cozy, it’s middle-grade, it’s age-appropriate. The big problem with it is that none of the characters have any flaws, so absolutely no character development can happen over the course of the story. The entire time I just wished that I was reading SMALL SPACES again. Three stars. LOVE the cover though. Booksweet link.
