Description

“Part high-seas adventure, part mystery, the story…makes for some page-turning reading…will carry fans of mysteries and pirate lore along.” Publishers Weekly

Vicki plans to spend her summer vacation waitressing at her father’s seaside restaurant, Ye Olde Seashell Room: a must-see tourist destination with seashell-covered walls and a 230-year-old figurehead from a lost ship, the Storm Goddess. But when the bay mysteriously goes dry and the Storm Goddess suddenly appears, Vicki and her small community are thrown off course. Now the town’s greedy mayor sees dollar signs from potential new tourism, a nosy reporter smells something fishy, and Vicki is haunted by ghosts! Can she, along with her friend, Peter, manage to get aboard the Storm Goddess and unlock its ancient curse?

Reiche’s masterfully plotted novel blends ghost story, pirate legend, and spine-tingling mystery into one captivating adventure.
