Crimival.jpg“Zoe is back for another summer of adventure. This time she is trying her hand at running her own business selling her idea of deep-fried soda pop. She quickly learns the ups and downs of starting a business and that she needs to balance her crime-solving with her day job. This time things could get deadly when the rides start falling apart literally. Will her telepathic powers be strong enough to stop disaster before it strikes?”


This is the first book in the series that I’ve read, and I do recommend that you read the initial book, The Disappearing Act, in order to get the full effect of the plot.

But I will say that it wasn’t something that I felt completely lost over. Since it is more of a mystery novel, what happens can have more of that standalone vibe. You’ll just be missing more of the characters’ background.

I gave this one 4 out of 5 stars.

I loved the setting of the carnival. It’s one of those subjects that tends to take me by storm, and I feel like the author did an entertaining job in portraying all the different elements into this mystery.

It is a shorter novel, so plan to fly through it in only a few sittings.

How I Read It: eARC from YA Bound Book Tours

*Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. All of my book reviews contain my honest opinion only and are not influenced in any way.*


“I grew up in the carnival which was the family business, after graduating I went to college. After which I got a job teaching English in South Korea which compelled me to pursue my Masters in Education upon my return. I have been teaching English ever since. 

Last year to help inspire my students to write more, I told them that I would write with them and complete a story and publish it. It took me all year, but I completed my first book, “The Disappearing Act” by the end of the year and got hooked on story telling! My time in the carnival business inspired my first book and my time spent at an archaeological dig helped to inspire my second book, “Kai’s Secret”.
