Bookish puzzles, phantom mysteries, and evil curses await as Elizabeth returns to investigate The Secrets of Winterhouse in Book 2 of Ben Guterson and Chloe Bristol's illustrated, magical series.
Back at the Winterhouse hotel for another holiday season, Elizabeth and Freddy dig deeper into the mystery surrounding Riley S. Granger, a hotel guest who left behind odd artifacts--one being a magical book that the evil Gracella Winters once attempted to use to gain destructive power over the entire Falls lineage.
The two friends follow a trail of clues, inadvertently attracting the attention of a suspicious new hotel guest: Elana Vesper. The clock is ticking as Elizabeth and Freddy struggle to figure out whether Elana is merely a pawn or a player in the plot to revive the spirit of Gracella. If that wasn't enough, Elizabeth suspects she is coming into her own special powers--and she's fearful it might lead her right into Gracella's vicious web.
Mystery, adventure, and a winning friendship combine in this much anticipated sequel.
