Tricks and treats keep the Halloween spirit alive in coastal Maine. But this year the haunted house theme is getting carried a little too far . . .
HAUNTED HOUSE MURDER by LESLIE MEIER
Newcomers to Tinker’s Cove, Ty and Heather Moon have moved into a dilapidated house reputed to be a haven for ghosts. Now strange noises and flickering lights erupt from the house at all hours and neighborly relations are on edge. And when a local boy goes missing near the house, it’s up to Lucy Stone to unravel the mystery of the eccentric couple and their increasingly frightful behavior.
DEATH BY HAUNTED HOUSE by LEE HOLLIS
For the past two years, the house next door to Hayley Powell has sat abandoned after the owner died under mysterious circumstances. The Salinger family has recently taken possession of the property, but the realtor behind the deal has vanished—after a very public and angry argument with Damien Salinger. If Bar Harbor’s newest neighbors are murderers, Hayley will haunt them until they confess.
HALLOWED OUT by BARBARA ROSS
With its history of hauntings and ghost sightings, Busman’s Harbor is the perfect setting for Halloween festivities. But when a reenactment of a Prohibition-era gangster’s murder ends with a literal bang and a dead actor from New Jersey, Julia Snowden must identify a killer before she ends up sleeping with the fishes.
PRAISE FOR HAUNTED HOUSE MURDER
“Haunted houses, a holiday staple, are an especially good fit for the authors’ folksy Down East setting. All three tales offer a dash of detection, but their strong suit is hometown charm.”
“Enjoyable. . . . The well-drawn main characters, not the spooky goings-on, are the main attraction. Cozy fans are in for a Halloween treat.”
Meier, Hollis, and Ross's enjoyable third holiday-themed anthology (after 2018's Yule Log Murder) collects three long haunted house stories, each set in coastal Maine. In Meier's "Haunted House Murder," Tinker's Cove reporter Lucy Stone tries to befriend her standoffish new neighbors, whose house emits strange sounds and lights, without success. She comes to consider asking the police to intervene. In Hollis's "Death by Haunted House," Island Times newspaper office manager Hayley Powell becomes suspicious of the quirky Salinger family that has moved into the abandoned house next door when the realtor disappears after a public argument with one of the Salingers. Finally, in Ross's "Hallowed Out," Julia Snowden, of Busman's Harbor, investigates the murder of an actor reenacting the murder of Prohibition-era gangster at a local diner. The well-drawn main characters, not the spooky goings-on, are the main attraction. Cozy fans are in for a Halloween treat.
