Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When her best friend, Wendy Choy, qualifies to compete in an international piano competition in Oxford, England, irrepressible Gilda Joyce finds a way to get an invitation herself as a page-turner. Wendy settles into an exhausting practice schedule, made worse by strange nightmares, while Gilda finds herself falling in love with a British boy. But when Wendy discovers a ghostly message written in the frost on her window, Gilda realizes her friends life could be in danger, and the key to solving the mystery may be in learning the truth behind the untimely death of a previous piano virtuoso.

Review:

"The novel is wonderfully paced and clues are dropped subtly as the story progresses. Gilda's fascination with Brit-speak also provides a healthy dose of humor." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

When Gilda lands a summer internship at Washington, D.C.'s, International SpyMuseum, she finds herself embroiled in both a museum haunting and a real caseof espionage, in this fourth installment of Allison's series. 5 1/2 x8 1/4.

Synopsis:

Gilda Joyce?s best friend, Wendy Choy, is chosen to participate in a piano competition in Oxford, England, so of course super-sleuth Gilda finds a way to go too. Once there, the grueling practice schedule takes a backseat to strange and spooky occurrences. There are foreboding tarot cards that keep appearing to the participants and ominous numbers etched in frosty windowpanes. But even more chilling are Wendy?s ghostly nightmares of a young boy?and the haunting melody she can?t shake out of her mind. Could there be a sinister connection to the piano competition? Gilda has a genuine haunting on her hands, and solving this one will take every ounce of psychic intuition she?s got!
