I’m not allowed to toot my horn all the time, but this announcement seems worth a little fanfare. Mickie McKinney: Boy Detective, which is featured from time to time on this site, has taken the GOLD at the Wishing Shelf Book Awards!!
Mickie McKinney is no longer Maple Ridge Middle School’s one and only private detective. Now there is a certain blonde by the name of Sam Hayes to share the office with, and the cases, who keeps giving away the candy!

Too bad for him, Kailani is the girl of his dreams.

Chapter 3: Kailani meets Sam

Readers Favorite says, “Hannah Edelson’s narration is smooth to the ear. She emphasizes the conversation between the characters in a way that pushes every other aspect of this audiobook into the background. If the objective is to make the story immersive it certainly does that. The best part of this aspect of the audiobook for me is the uniqueness of each of the characters she voices. It goes beyond their conversations to the slightest of inflections in their tone when expressing their moods. Beautiful work.“
