The Haunting of Swain's Fancy
Taylor has come to Swain's Fancy to spend the summer with her father and his new wife, Sylvia, and her children, Nicole and Peter. She has to share a room with Nicole, who thinks Taylor is about as welcome as Lyme disease. But the stepsisters' enmity is soon eclipsed by strange goings-on in the house. What makes the bedroom so cold? Who is that person looking out the attic window? Sibling rivalry is pushed aside as Taylor, Nicole, Peter, and neighbor Cody join forces to solve a murder committed during the Civil War. As Kirkus Reviews said of The Haunting at Stratton Falls, here is another "thoroughly satisfying ghost story with just the right amounts of scariness, suspense, and danger . . ."

About Brenda Seabrooke
Brenda Seabrooke graduated from Tulane University where she majored in history. She taught it briefly before turning to writing stories. "Not a big jump," she says, "because history is full of wonderful stories." She grew up reading every mystery she could find. "I loved them all. Once at my grandmother's for a weekend, I had nothing to read. In the hall bookcase I found treasure: the complete works of Edgar Allan Poe and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes books. I read my way through them on visits." Now after she finishes writing for the day, she reads mysteries.
