The Diamond Mistake Mystery by Sylvia McNicoll
Five-year-old Pearl claims that a pirate stole the rare Blushing Diamond. But everyone’s a pirate on Halloween.
Dogwalker Stephen Noble has been recruited to walk his five-year-old reading buddy, Pearl Lebel, to and from school while her mother is away and her father is ill. He’s sure that this will be easier than walking canine clients Ping and Pong — until Pearl locks herself in the house, runs away from home, and loses her family’s rare pink diamond ring.
When Pearl claims that a pirate took the ring, Stephen and Renée are on the case. But the more they discover, the more it feels like everyone is a suspect. With Pearl annoying them every step of the way, will they be able to solve the mystery before the ring's scheduled appearance at the Brilliant Diamond Show?
Sylvia McNicoll is the author of over thirty novels. Bringing up Beauty, her guide dog story, won the Silver Birch Award, launching her to international success. She’s also a frequent guest speaker at Brian Henry’s weekly Writing Kid Lit classes. Sylvia lives in Burlington, Ontario.
If you miss the launch, you can buy a copy online here or at any bookstore.

And

The Goddaughter Does Vegas
by Melodie Campbell
Gina Gallo is a mob goddaughter who doesn't want to be one. She's left her loopy family behind to elope with Pete to Vegas. Except that eloping may be a mortal sin in an Italian family. Between that and some weird deliveries and suitors, Gina's nerves are frayed. Vegas is full of great acts, but one impersonation is real: Gina has a crime-committing double whose activities are making Gina front-page news. Gina has to track down this fiendish fraud before the police catch up with her. And, of course, cousin Nico is along for the ride.
Another madcap adventure for the loveable Gallo cousins that proves the rule "Why should things go right when they can go wrong?"
Melodie Campbell is the award-winning author of several works of fiction. Melodie lives in Oakville, Ontario. 
If you miss the launch, you can buy a copy online here or at any bookstore.
