The Haunting Of Whispering Cove Lighthouse

By Lynne Smyles
Regular price $12.00

Riley’s family had no way of knowing that an innocuous search into her family’s ancestry would lead them to a lighthouse shrouded in mystery, danger, and suspense. Upon discovering that their ancestor, Captain Boyle, had been the keeper of Whispering Cove Lighthouse in the 1800s, the Boyle family and Riley’s cousin Charlie decide to vacation there. Shortly after arriving, they learn the legend of the lighthouse, the two ghosts who haunt it, and the treasure hidden there.

As Riley and Charlie search for the treasure, watchful strangers seem to lurk around every corner in this mysterious small town. Soon, unexplained occurrences cause the cousins to wonder if there really are ghosts. Or, is something more nefarious behind these manifestations? And, if they do find the loot, with so many eyes watching, who can the family trust?

The Haunting of Whisper Cover Lighthouse

An excellent contribution to the Young Adult category!
I initially couldn’t find it in the Goodreads library, so I asked that it be added. They obliged and I’m so glad they did!
I sometimes read Y/A books as a form of “recalibrating” my reading mind and imagination.
This was a great read with an exciting storyline and a wonderful ending.
It was reminiscent of a Hardy Boys Mystery or Encyclopedia Brown for me, and deserves some attention if you like that type of sleuthing story.
From Marine City, Michigan to the Whispering Cove Lighthouse along the seashore of Maine, it had me hooked.
Who can resist a story of Pirate’s treasure and historical discovery? Just so suspenseful and fun with a nod to dangerous and spooky.
I would recommend this book for any young person and many adults as well!
