Enchantment Lake

Published by University of Minnesota Press, cover illustration by Mighty Media

On the shores of Enchantment Lake in the woods of northern Minnesota, something ominous is afoot, and as seventeen-year-old Francie begins to investigate, the mysteries multiply: a poisoned hot-dish, a puzzling confession, eerie noises in the bog, and a legendary treasure said to be under enchantment—or is that under Enchantment, as in under the lake?

Fans of Nancy Drew . . . will find much to appreciate in this story of a modern-day teen sleuth.
