SOS at Night: 01/29/19
SOS at Night by M.A. Wilson is the third in the Maple Harbour mystery series. The cousins are back to Maple Harbour unexpectedly when their parents have to travel.
On their first jaunt on the water the cousins hit a fog bank. The winds die down and they end up having to row. They end up seeking refuge on Opera Island, the site of an old lighthouse that was recently converted to an automatic station. They also notice a for sale sign.
The mystery here is primarily why this bird sanctuary and former manned lighthouse is for sale and who could possibly be bidding on it. There's also the obvious red flag that lighthouse stations are government owned.
The secondary plot involves the town coming together to fund a counter offer to buy the island, thus giving the cousins a chance to discover the truth behind Opera Island.
While this book was shorter than the previous two, it was still a delightful read.
