Summary: Sarah Cole and her sister are visiting their uncle and aunt in a small town for the summer.  Sarah meets a skinny girl named Jackie right away, and they get along famously.  In the midst of getting to know each other they stumble on the body of the local old lady recluse who has been murdered.  The rest of the book unfolds with interesting twists and a second mystery is uncovered by the girls.

Review: These characters were likable, and the villain totally scary. It started a little slowly, but the plot developed nicely and ended up having several loose ends tied up neatly.

Recommendation: This is a good book for a middle school readership.  I liked it, and would read more by Lisa Orchard. I give it four quills.Four Quills
