An Enchantment Lake Mystery
The Clue in the Trees
If Francie thinks things have settled down since her previous adventure, Enchantment Lake, she’s in for a surprise. Francie’s brother Theo has secrets—secrets Francie thinks she wants to know. But what if one of those secrets is that Theo is a murderer?
Francie is about to plunge into her senior year at a small-town high school near Enchantment Lake in northern Minnesota, a radical change from her years at a private school in New York. But when her long lost brother turns up, so does a dead body, and once again, Francie finds herself drawn into another mystery.
A long list of suspects, with Theo at the top, keeps her head spinning. When Francie herself becomes a suspect, she starts to feel like she is walking on thin ice, but it isn’t until she is literally walking on thin ice that the pieces start to come together—and by then it may be too late.
