Three Times Lucky and The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing by Sheila Turnage
Book Reviews by Tesse
I am going to review two books – Three Times Lucky and The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing. Both of these books are by Sheila Turnage.
Three Times Lucky is about a girl named Moses (aka Mo) LoBeau, who was washed onto the shores of the town of Tupelo Landing eleven years ago during a hurricane. She lives with Miss Lana and the Colonel and helps them in their café along with her friend Dale Earnhardt Johnson II. Mo thinks that her summer looks good, until one of the residents of Tupelo Landing is murdered and a lawman comes into town asking questions. With Dale’s help, Mo sets out to solve the mystery.
The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing is about Mo LeBeau just starting sixth grade when Miss Lana accidentally becomes the owner of an old inn because of the Tupelo auction. When Mo learns that there may be an unidentified ghost in the inn, she is itching to take on the case. Plus, finding out more about the ghost could earn her extra credit in history class. So, Mo and Dale take the case, and with the help of a new kid Harm Crenshaw, they discover that it is more than just the inn of Tupelo Landing that is being haunted by the past.
I really enjoyed both books because they were suspenseful and funny with just the right touch of spookiness. I would recommend these books to mystery lovers everywhere!
Thanks, Tesse! Great job!
