Adventure begins where the land ends…
Prim, Ellis, Henry and Shona stumble onto the biggest mystery in Cranberry Cove. Together, they must face their fears to save their beloved island and find their missing uncle.
But the ghost in Prim’s dream threatens to become real, and a mysterious neighbour turns up when they least expect him. Is he there to help? Or is the creepy man behind their uncle’s disappearance and the mystery light haunting Cranberry Cove?
Mystery Light in Cranberry Cove was inspired by the many adventures author Candy McMudd enjoyed while growing up along the Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia.
If you love downhome mysteries, stumbling onto family history and adventure on the water, you’ll love Mystery Light in Cranberry Cove. The novel is suitable for children ages 10 and up, including those well into their senior years. Take a step back in time to the 1990s, when things were simpler and adventure was around every corner if you went looking.
