Not as creepy as I was hoping it would be and a bit disappointing in regards to the ghost. Still, it’s an easy, fast read.

An old fashioned ghost story. Not very scary, but has a good mystery.

Heartwarming and creepy, this book teaches important lessons about acceptance of those who are different, and also deals with survivors guilt while unraveling a decades old murder mystery.

I thoroughly enjoyed this tale about an independent girl stuck with her disapproving uncle in a remote cabin during the summer. Christina asserts her personality and refuses to be cowed. Not only is the main plot line resolved but the relationship between Christina and Uncle Ralph is also resolved with both characters ending up improved.
