In the Shadow of Spindrift House
Harlowe Upton-Jones and her close friends were the kids known around town for solving mysteries and minor crimes, even when they got kind of weird and somewhat paranormal. More than once they’d find out who the perpetrator was and then bring in the authorities to finish it up. But now the gang are in their late teens and looking at moving on with their lives, only Harlowe isn’t sure what to do next. Fortunately, there’s one last case they agree to solve.
In a small town in Maine there is a haunted house and within that haunted house somewhere is a deed for who truly owns the house. If the gang to find that deed and get out alive and “unhaunted” they get a cool million dollars. Harlowe will have all her problems solved, except this might be the case that is a little too much for them.
In the Shadow of Spindrift House is kind of like Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew mixed together with a strong supernatural vibe. It’s gripping and fun in the way those classic kids stories were, but also with an adult edge to it, because this is a haunted house after all. While it ends as it should, the reader is left wanting to read more adventures with these “wacky young adults.”
