Then she meets Ryan and Marc. Marc and Ryan work at the nursing home in Kittiwake Bay that Cassie is volunterring at. Mrs. Wentworth, Mr. O'Reilly and Mr. Johnson are all residents of the nursing home. After many of Mrs. Wentworth's stories about Captain Kidd's treasure, Cassie and Marc go looking for it. They discover the tunnels that Mrs. Wentworth was talking about and they found all of the items that were stolen from there neighbors. They came back into town and found that the nursing home had caught on fire. All of the older people were ok. The police had caught the crimanals (Ryan and John) thinks to Cassie and Marc. In the end they are sitting around the TV eating popcorn and watching a movie.
This book is a wonderful combination of Mystery and Adventure, it kept me page turning, and when I got to the end I was wishing for more! Joyce definetly gets 2 thumbs up!!
Mystery at Kittiwake Bay already caught my eye the day I saw it sitting on the shelf. I loved how the book starts with an eye-catcher, a BOOM to where Cassie sees the blinking lights. This book has a little of everything in it: romance, violence, mystery, anxiety... I RECOMMEND IT!
