The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing
Moses “Mo” Lobeu, one half of the Desperado Detective Agency, just recently solved a murder with her best friend Dale Earnhardt Johnson III, the other half of the Desperado Detective Agency. Mo and Dale are attending an auction when Miss Lana, caught up in the moment, buys a rundown hotel. In the hotel’s contract, the word ghost appears. Grandmother Lacy Thorton, the eldest person in Tupelo Landing, and Miss Lana discover that along with the property came an unidentified ghost. Mo’s eager to identify the ghost while Dale desires to stay far away. Only a few days after the auction Dale and Mo have to attend their first day of sixth grade. Snooty and mysterious Harm Crenshaw shows up at the same day. Thus beginning the great ghost mystery of Mo, Dale and Harm.
The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing is a great book. It starts off slow, but picks up speed quickly. Just the description made me start to ask questions. Will Mo identify the unidentified ghost? Who’s Harm Crenshaw? What will Miss Lana and Grandmother Lacy do? And much more. This is the sequel to Three Times Lucky, another wonderful book by Sheila Turnage. Despite the fact that The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing is a sequel to Three Times Lucky, a reader doesn’t need to read the first book first. This sequel follows Mo throughout the whole book which, occasionally, becomes frustrating because I wanted to know what other characters were hiding, but was an enjoyable book. Sheila Turnage’s one of a kind southern writing style is wonderful. I would love to see more of Mo, Dale and Harm. This amazing book is recommended to almost anyone.
