Crime Writing Month: Emily Mason's Ghost Detectives

Emily Mason's Ghost Detectives is a new series to me which I haven't had time to read yet. So far there are two books, The Lost Bride (2012) and The Missing Dancer (2013). Aimed at 8-12 year olds they are perfect for this year's Summer Reading Challenge theme - Creepy House!

Some ghosts are haunted by their past. When the local museum needs volunteers to help it reopen, Abi, Hannah, Sarah and Grace sign up. The girls discover that the museum has a link to the spirit world when they find an ancient diary and meet a ghost bride from another century. She can't rest in peace until she finds out why her true love left her at the altar. The Ghost Detectives have a romantic first mystery to solve.

When Abi, Sarah , Hannah and Grace are visited by the ghost of a little lost girl trying to dance one last time so that her spirit can rest, they jump at the chance to help. But this Ghost Detective case seems to be shrouded in secrets and everywhere they look, people get upset.

With clues running out, can the Ghost Detectives solve the mystery of the missing dancer?
