Hapless at Hotel Hopeless

August 15th, 2022

Seventeen-year-old Charlie Hope expects to have an uneventful summer helping his mother at the family hotel. He only sees two other people regularly: Mr. Ignato, an elderly hotel resident, and Penny Price, a child actor who is also the star of a hit TV show, “Little Miss Murder” in Vancouver-based John Lekich’s sixth novel for young adult readers Murder at the Hotel Hopeless (Orca $10.95). Then Mr. Ignato is found dead in his room. Thing is, Charlie doesn’t think it’s an accident. Only Penny supports Charlie’s belief and she’s eager to investigate what could be a real murder when the two discover something valuable in Mr. Ignato’s room. Did the old man have a hidden criminal past? 9781459833500
