Kylie Logan returns with her League of Literary Ladies for their third adventure. This time the setting is Halloween, and the EGG, paranormal investigators, are in town to get proof that a local legend, the ghost of “Sleepy” Harlow, a 1930’s bootlegger, does exist. Of course it coincides with the Ladies having to read “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” – things are going well, despite Jerry Garcia acting up – until one of the ghostbusters is murdered. And when Bea’s friend Kate is the prime suspect, she has to do all she can to clear her.
This was a fun read. Kylie Logan writes fun mysteries with vibrant characters. I particularly love the interaction between Bea and Levi. Perfect for reading at Halloween or anytime – 4 paws! – ROCCO Lotempio
It takes more than a lurid legend to scare off the League of Literary Ladies?
For Halloween, the Literary Ladies have chosen to read Washington Irving’s spooky classic, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, with its infamous headless horseman. But South Bass Island has its own headless legend?of a Prohibition bootlegger named Charlie ?Sleepy” Harlow. Decapitated by rival rumrunners, Harlow appears once a year in spectral form to search for his noggin.
This October, the Elkhart Ghost Getters (EGG) have returned to the island. The group claims that they have film footage of Harlow’s ghost, and are determined to get more. They’re staying at Bea Cartwright’s B and B, but it’s Kate Wilder who isn’t happy to see them after they trashed her winery last year. When the EGG leader turns up dead, Kate becomes the prime suspect, and the other League members need to scramble to crack the case.
