Heiress PI by Amanda Mahan
Heiress, P.I. is described as Veronica Mars meets Gossip Girl...
Meet Lucy Hansen. She’s the richest teenager in the world – and possibly the shyest. She doesn’t flash her business to the paparazzi as she’s getting out of limos or send selfies while smoking salvia. No, Lucy hides behind her frizzy bangs, environmental causes and organic hemp-blend sweats. Her one true friend (and secret crush) Holden is the poorest kid in Beverly Hills – and probably the scrappiest. He interns for a famous private investigator, and when he asks Lucy to help him crack a case, her life turns from tame to tabloid, from glum to glam, from private to private eye. And when the trail leads directly to her hotel magnate father, it’s up to Lucy to solve the case by infiltrating Hollywood’s most elite and unwelcoming club: Celebutantes. Teens who are famous for, well… being famous.
Along the way, “LuHan” endures wardrobe malfunctions, fake romances, compromising videos-turned-YouTube hits, unflattering mug shots and – worst of all – a makeover. Now Lucy has to save her father, dodge the paparazzi, and keep her IRL ID on the DL – all while maybe, almost, possibly having her first real kiss.
If you’ve ever read the tabloids and wondered, “What was she thinking?” then HEIRESS, P.I. offers one possible answer.
With the blurb promising 'Veronica Mars meets Gossip Girl', I was excited to read Heiress PI.
The story follows Lucy Hansen, the heiress to a worldwide hotel chain, but Lucy isn't like other rich Hollywood teens, she likes to blend into the background and help the environment.
That is until best friend Holden needs the help of Lucy to impress his private investigator boss.
Suddenly Lucy is thrust into the limelight as LuHan. The things you do for friends...
I really liked Lucy and Holden, their friendship and chemistry made for some great reading,
But I think my favourite character was Lucy's nan, there is definitely more to learn about her!
Heiress PI is an easy read, which is both funny and full of twists and turns.
The only negative for me is the ending.
I'm hoping this is the start of a series otherwise it really is left up in the air!
