Book Summary

Small towns have rules. One is, you got to stay who you are - no matter how many murders you solve.

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. They've got to figure out who the ghost is so they can interview it for their history assignment (extra credit). 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.

A laugh out loud, ghostly, Southern mystery that can be enjoyed by readers visiting Tupelo Landing for the first time, as well as those who are old friends of Mo and Dale.

Media Reviews

"Starred Review. Not every thread is fully tied off, but the residents of Tupelo Landing are so companionable and Mo so indefatigable (and funny) that readers can only hope those loose ends mean another installment is in the works." - Publishers Weekly

"Starred Review.This delightful sequel demonstrates that Tupelo Landing may be even better on a second visit. Mystery. 10-14." - Kirkus

"Starred Review. The perspicacious Mo LoBeau is at it again!. . . humor and action abound." - 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

If you have not read this book, you have absolutely noooo life!!!!!
This book is amazing! I have to admit, the first two chapters aren't really good, but don't stop there! If you keep reading, you will become a person who is full of life, real sadness, happiness, and just plain emotion! When I got into the middle of the book, it really grabbed me and would not let go! I was hooked! This book is the best book that I have ever read (along with Three Times Lucky:)) You need to read this book NOW! (Not tomorrow, not next week, go out right NOW and buy this book and start reading it!

got really boring
this book had so much potential throught its plot, but it elaborate on things that didnt even matter in the end. i feel like the auter had no idea of how they were going to end it so they picked up all the lose ends and tied it into a pretty little know. But no, the book needed more, it need more ghosts! The first 100 pages of the book wont really matter in the end. Sure the inn was what git them on the hunt for ghosts, but it just got redundent after that. Oh,band did i mention there is absolutely no character development! if you really want to read this book, get it from a library, its not good ebough to be bought
