Flora dreams of becoming a female Sherlock Holmes but the only detective work she gets to do is sorting reclaimed tiles in her father’s Salvage and reclamation yard best friend Archie. That is until ghostly happening begin to interfere with the sorting. A ghost is trying to send a message to Flora and her friend Archie. Soon they are thrown into a chilling mystery which began nearly 180 years ago and in which they could uncover more than they ever imagined possible.

Inspired by real historical events this is a great page-turner that will thrill any young lovers of crime and ghost stories.

Synopsis

The House on March Lane by Michelle Briscombe

In 1836, Harriet's papa, a ship's office on HMS Beagle, returns from a long journey at sea. On his arrival home, Harriet and her friend Lily become involved in a dangerous secret, with tragic consequences.

Almost 180 years later, Flora's best friend Archie experiences a ghostly encounter at her dad's reclamation and salvage yard. The haunting takes two friends on a detective adventure with an unexpected and supernatural difference.

Flora and Archie, Harriet and Lily's lives are soon entwined in a way that they could never have imagined possible.
