Zoey has made her craziest purchase to date...eighty acres of who knows what.
Claire has just lost her job and her boyfriend and has come home to be with her mom.
Together the two start walking through the eighty acres.

They come across a family cemetery, an old mansion and a lot of weeds.
The mansion is filled with all the heirlooms left behind by the previous family.
Why would they leave everything behind? And what happened to the family? And why is there an old newspaper detailing the Riverside fire of 1927 in an old locked trunk?

After months of work they finally have the mansion ready for guests.
But when the guests start complaining that the mansion is haunted Zoey and Claire have their work cut out for them...
Can they uncover "the riddles of Hillgate" manor?

Just ok

This book was ok. There were some grammatical errors. Short, easy, read.

    short easy to read

    Juvenile writing, unbelievable plot. Obvious errors such as the IRS appraising the property and assessing property taxes.

    This book had the potential of being a fun read and a good mystery.  However, the writing was so scattered and broken up.  No flow of events.  Just really poorly written.  So glad I got it when it was free... would have been upset if I had spent money on it.  Guess you get what you pay for.
