About this product
- DescriptionA disturbing call from her great aunts Astrid and Jeannette sends seventeen-year-old Francie far from her new home in New York into a tangle of mysteries. Ditching an audition in a Manhattan theater, Francie travels to a remote lake in the rthwoods where her aunts neighbors are dropping like flies from strange accidents. But are they accidents?On the shores of Enchantment Lake in the woods of rthern Minnesota, something omius is afoot, and as Francie begins to investigate, the mysteries multiply: a poisoned hot dish, a puzzling confession, eerie ises in the bog, and a legendary treasure that is said to be under enchantment or is that under Enchantment, as in under the lake? At the center of everything is a suddenly booming business in cabin sales and a road t everyone wants built.To a somewhat reluctant rthwoods Nancy Drew, the intrigue proves irresistible, especially when it draws her closer to the mysteries at the heart of her own life: What happened to her father? Who and where is her mother? Who is she, and where does her heart lie in the bustle of New York City or the deep woods of Minnesota? With its gripping story, romantic spirit, and a sly dash of modern-day trouble (evil realtors and other invasive species), Enchantment Lake will fascinate readers, providing precisely the charm that Margi Preus s readers have come to expect.
