Publisher's Summary

Mystery stalks the cobbled streets of Pirate's Cove. 

Who or what is haunting elderly recluse Juliet Blackwell, what does it have to do with mysterious goings-on at the Salty Dog Pub - and why is any of it mystery bookshop owner Ellery Page's problem? According to sometimes-boyfriend Police Chief Jack Carson, it's not Ellery's problem, and Ellery should stop asking awkward questions before it's too late. 

Ellery couldn't agree more, but it's hard to say no when someone is as frightened as old Mrs. Blackwell. Mrs. Blackwell insists the ghost of long-dead pirate Rufus Blackwell has come to avenge himself on the last member of his treacherous clan. 

Before Ellery can say, "Yikes!" Mrs. Blackwell takes a tumble down the grand staircase of her spooky mansion, and it's up to Ellery to find who is trying to kill his eccentric customer.

Good story. Good narration.

This was another enjoyable addition to the Secrets and Scrabble series.

Mysterious deaths, secret tunnels, ghost sightings, a bookseller turned reluctant sleuth, small town gossip, and old buildings with secret passages are all piled together on a coastal island famous for being the home of renowned pirates. What else could a cozy mystery possibly need? Entertaining dialogue, a dash of romance, and a cute puppy.

Like all the other volumes of this series, the rhythm of the storytelling is strangely soothing for a murder mystery, and the author continues to leave enough teasers in each book to keep the reader anticipating the next book.

The narration was well suited to the characters and the story, and adds an extra dimension to the story.
