Waiting On Wednesday: The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing

"Waiting On" a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm excitedly waiting on...

The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing
by Sheila Turnage
Feb. 11, 2014

The eagerly anticipated followup to the Newbery honor winner and New York Times bestseller, Three Times Lucky

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.


The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing is a companion to one of my favorite reads last year, and one of my all time fave middle-grade books, Three Times Lucky. When I read Three Times Lucky I fell in love with Sheila Turnage's storytelling and her charming characters, and her heroine, Mo, is one of the best! I'm so excited to dive back into this delightful southern setting and join the Desperado Detective Agency as they solve another exciting mystery! If you're a middle-grade fan or know a middle-grade reader, I can't recommend this funny, smart, heart-warming series enough!

Hmm, I've seemed to have missed Three Times Lucky. Will have to add it to the TBR pile. Great review.
