Ghosts of Greenglass House by Kate Milford

Milo is home for the Christmas holidays and he wishes his ghost friend was around.  It's too quiet and a bit boring without her.  They do have a guest but he's an artist and not much company for Milo.  Soon Milo will long for the quiet days he had...

Clarion Books and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published October 3rd.

A caroling group comes to visit and sings Christmas songs to them.  They're a bit odd and scared Milo the last visit they made but he's handling it fine this year.  Even when part of a costume gets set on fire, he hangs in there.  Soon they are in the house trying to recover from the accident.  Then the snow gets too thick and they can't leave.  No more empty home for Milo.

They had already been invaded by two guests from the last Christmas.  They're on the run because of a theft and need a place to hide.  Unfortunately, it seems the chorus group wants the goods they stole because all of a sudden they're gone from where they had them stored.  With the painter getting in everyone's way and flirting with one of the girls, it's hard to tell just who might be guilty.  It's a good thing his friendly ghost returns because he needs her help.

There are two people trying to get their hands on the lost items, the past and the present mix, another ghost comes into play, and the hobby horse of the chorus comes to life even though it only had a skull.  It has an exciting ending and it was a busy fun read all the way through.  I liked it a lot.
