The Ghosts of Pebble Brook Lodge by Linda Covella

Pepper has had to move again.  Her parents refurbish homes, restaurants, even lodges.  They are also chefs.  Every time Pepper has made a new friend that she really likes, they move.  At least this time it's just some miles away, not states away.  She was doing OK with the change until she saw the ghost...

The author and Goddess Fish Blog Tours gave me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you).  You can buy a copy on Amazon now.

Pepper and her little sister explore the lodge but it's huge.  One unique thing about it is that a river runs through the restaurant.  It's pretty and soothing and not very deep.  It's also where a young girl died.  Pepper hears the story at a shop downtown and when she mentions it to her mother she confirms it's true.  Her little brother was accused of killing her and they say he's not right in the head.  He's an adult now and Pepper admires his skill at carving.  She also sees his gentle nature and thinks that he couldn't be a murderer.  But how to prove it?

This has a feel of the old fashioned mysteries I used to read as a child.  It's written for young adults and is a very pleasant read.  Pepper has the ability to see ghosts but she can't figure out what they are trying to tell her.  She finds four different ghosts and they all have part of the story.

Ms. Covella makes everything fit together smoothly.  There are scary moments and one evil ghost but Pepper prevails.  There's plenty of action and her words carried me down the trail to the end of the story with anticipation of how it would end.

This is the second in this series and I'm sure there will be more to come.  It will be fun to see Pepper grow up and conquer more challenges.
