This is a mid-grade mystery series starring 12 year-old Hannah West. Hannah and her mother would be homeless if it wasn't for their job: house-sitting. In this book the mother and daughter are living on a houseboat in Portage Bay where a television crew are shooting a movie. Things get mysterious when dead fish start to appear in the water and Hannah goes into sleuth mode..
