9780778315186: The Carriage House

Fun and a little hard work. That's all Tess Haviland has in mind when Ike Grantham pays her for her graphic design work on the run-down nineteenth-century carriage house on Boston's North Shore. 

Then Ike disappears and Tess finds herself with much more than a simple weekend project to get her out of the city. It's not just the rumors that the carriage house is haunted—it's the neighbors: six-year-old Dolly Thorne, her reclusive babysitter, Harley Beckett...and especially Dolly's father, Andrew Thorne, who has his own ideas about why Tess has turned up next door. 

But when Tess discovers a human skeleton in her dirt cellar, she begins to ask questions about the history of the carriage house, the untimely death of Andrew's wife...and Ike's disappearance. Questions a desperate killer wants to silence before the truth reveals that someone got away with murder.

From the Author:

Readers often ask where I get an idea for a book, and I have to say, I seldom can pin it down. Not so with THE CARRIAGE HOUSE. I actually grew up in a late 18th century New England carriage house, complete with a trap door and a dirt cellar. We had the occasional stray mouse and snake down there, but, mercifully, no human skeletons. Tess's carriage house is mid-19th century, on the coast and reportedly haunted -- but when she opens that trap door and peers down into her dirt cellar...I really do know what that's like! Hope you enjoy the book, and thanks.
