    Mystery story that is reminiscent of Agatha Christie's books.

    "Twelfth Night" is the second book in the Wendover House Mystery Series and it continues on where "The Secret Staircase" left off. In the first book, Tess MacKay inherits a mansion on a small island in Maine and visits it to look it over. She is the last in a long line of Wendovers, and she finds that curses, smuggling and ghosts come with her inheritance. In "Twelfth Night", Tess is living in the mansion and learning more about the family's past. She is being disrupted each night by a long-lost relative – a dead one – and hosts a Twelfth Night party to share ghost stories with her new neighbors and old friends. Her goal is to find some way to help her poor dead relative find peace.

    The book is full of wonderful ghost stories that Tess' friends share as well as Tess' ghost story. You feel as if you are sitting at the table with them, sharing scary stories of the past. Ms. Jackson's writing is so smooth and delicious, just reading how she puts together sentence after sentence is delightful. And her storytelling is flawless. If you love a good mystery story that is reminiscent of Agatha Christie's books, then you will enjoy this series of books. "Twelfth Night" leaves us hanging, so I'm happy to see there will be a third book – can't wait to read it.
