Synopsis

The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing by Sheila Turnage

When Miss Lana makes an Accidental Bid at the Tupelo auction and winds up the mortified owner of an old inn, she doesn't realize there's a ghost in the fine print. Naturally, Desperado Detective Agency (aka Mo and Dale) opens a paranormal division to solve the mystery of the ghost's identity. But Mo and Dale start to realize that the inn isn't the only haunted place in Tupelo Landing. People can also be haunted by their own past. As Mo and Dale handily track down the truth about the ghost (with some help from the new kid in town), they discover the truth about a great many other people, too.

Reviews

Praise for The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing * This sequel shines. --Kirkus Reviews, starred review * The perspicacious Mo LoBeau is at it again! --School Library Journal, starred review * Turnage's ability to create convincing characters and her colorful use of language combine to make this a fresh, droll, rewarding trip to Tupelo Landing. --Booklist, starred review * The budding detective has clearly taken to heart something her foster mother always emphasizes: 'All the world's a stage, sugar, so hop on up there.

--Publishers Weekly, starred review * We certainly hope there is more to come from the Desperado Detectives. -- BCCB, starred review
