The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing: 11/12/14
The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing by Sheila Turnage is the sequel to Three Times Lucky but the first one I've read. That said, it stands alone just fine with plenty of time given on reintroducing characters, setting, and basic plot dynamics.
At the edge of Tupelo Landing, there's an Inn, abandoned since the 1930s. To save some history and keep an annoying busybody from moving in, Miss Lana makes the winning bid at the auction. There's just one problem — the place comes with its very own ghost.
Mo and her best friend Dale are on the case, deciding to meet and greet the ghost and see if an arrangement can be made. They also want to interview him or her for their history project — a guaranteed A.
Now where's a book with the perfect mix of elements to get my attention. For the mystery lover, there's the amateur detectives. For the horror fan, there's the hotel with buried and tragic history. For the paranormal fan, there's the ghost. For the history fan, there's a prohibition era story. And it all comes together into a quirky but charming tale set in a small, fictional North Carolina town.
