Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A waitress at her mother's decaying resort hotel, twelve-year-old Emma now has a second job as the youngest cub reporter in the history of La Porte's Conservative newspaper. But when she discovers the crumbling shell of a fabulous hotel- the once-sumptuous Belle Rouen-in the woods near her small town of Spirit Lake, Emma never imagines that the mysteries it holds will bring her one step closer to solving a forty-year-old crime-and force a new transgression to light.

Review:

"Grimes' pungent prose and catchy dialog breathe life into her charming young narrator and the novels' idiosyncratic cast of characters." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

In a fitting follow-up to "Hotel Paradise" and "Cold Flat Junction, New York Times" bestselling author Grimes returns with her third novel featuring the quirky and precocious Emma Graham.
