Lights, camera, action! Yeehaw!
Alice-Miranda and her friends are off to Hollywood to take part in Lawrence Ridley’s new movie. It’s a western with a twist, and they’ll be shooting some scenes on location at the picturesque Grand Canyon. Everyone’s excited to get a sneak peek of the glitz and glamour of show business – especially Caprice!
On set, however, there is high drama with tears and tantrums, romance and a string of suspicious mishaps. Is there a villain lurking behind the scenes, or could the rumours of a curse be true? Alice-Miranda is determined to get to the bottom of the mystery before tensions explode.
“What a great adventure this is! As usual, Alice-Miranda acts with aplomb and generosity even towards the less than amiable Caprice. How can Jacqueline top this one? Although, I have no doubts given her talent that she can – she knows exactly what her readership loves and provides it time and time again.”

“Jacquie Harvey delights her fans with this sixteenth Alice-Miranda novel. All the enjoyable and familiar elements are present, an exciting multi-layered mystery, with captivating characters, commotions on and off the film set and puzzles for Alice-Miranda to solve.”

“Alice-Miranda acts with a maturity beyond her years. She is smart and highly confident, so much so that other characters, including adults, trust her and confide in her – a device that keeps the clues coming. She is optimistic and loyal, endearing qualities that make her a positive role model to her readership.”
