Teen Haunted House Mysteries Bundle contains two complete YA
ghost mystery novels by bestselling author R. Barri Flowers, including Ghost
Girl in Shadow Bay and Teen Ghost at Dead Lake.
Girl in Shadow Bay
Three years after her father was
killed, sixteen-year-old Peyton Delaney, her mother, Melody, and new
stepfather, Vance McIntyre, relocate to Shadow Bay, Minnesota and move into an
old Victorian. They are unaware of the house's dark history--fifty years ago, a
jealous husband snapped, murdering his wife, her lover, and sixteen-year-old daughter
before killing himself.
But when Peyton begins to have
nightmares about the crime and is haunted by a ghostly teenage girl named
Caitlyn, she begins to investigate with the help of the caretaker's cute son,
Bryant. As the two delve into the supernatural mystery surrounding the house,
they discover that the events that led to the tragedy of fifty years ago are
somehow intertwined with the present. In other words, history is repeating
itself and Peyton, Bryant, and their parents are being drawn into a disturbing
case of jealousy, possession, revenge, and murder, while seemingly powerless to
prevent the inevitable from taking place all over again.
Caitlyn is a ghost who has had to
relive the nightmare of being murdered by her father for half a century. When
Peyton and her family arrive at the house where Caitlyn’s spirit has remained
trapped, she feels a connection to Peyton and knows instinctively that it will
take the two of them to not only free Caitlyn at long last, but to prevent her
tragedy from becoming one that Peyton too must endure.
Teen Ghost at Dead
When sixteen-year-old Paige Preston and her mother relocated
to Dead Lake, Michigan, they were unaware that a seventeen-year-old previous
resident of their house had killed himself by jumping off a cliff into the lake
six months earlier. But was it really suicide?
Noah Snyder is a ghost. At least he thinks so. Only he's not
sure how he died. He recruits the attractive Paige to help him get to the
bottom of the mystery so he can move on. Before he died, Noah was the captain
of the boys swim team and popular at Dead Lake High School. He had also
suffered from depression after losing his father when Noah was just a boy.
Paige, who had initially believed she was dealing with an
imposter Noah, is stunned to find out that he is a real ghost and that there
were more than a few people who may have wanted him dead. Being attracted to a
cute teen ghost is no small feat as Paige tries to adjust to life in a new town
and help unravel the mystery of his death. In the process, she soon finds
herself in danger, as someone wants to keep a deadly secret at all costs.
