A glorious manor with mysteries spread across the ages GHOSTS, LORE & A HOUSE BY THE SHORE is a wonderful start to a new series.
~Cozy Up With Kathy

Ghosts, Lore and a House by the Shore is a delightful tale with a haunted house, a clever cat, a seaside souvenir shop, frightening threats, whispering winds, and a startling surprise.
~The Avid Reader

I was completely engrossed until the very end. This is an excellent start to a new series with endearing characters. I look forward to my next visit to Hideaway Bay.
~Socrates’ Book Reviews

Pirates! Ghosts! Hidden treasure? Missing people! Murder? Small Town! Ghosts, Lore & a House by the Shore has it all, along with a mother-daughter team that readers will love.
~Reading is my Superpower

One of the things I liked about Ghosts, Lore, and a House by the Shore was the presence of the two diaries that Cassie and Lily uncovered in the library. We get to learn about the mystery of Black Jack’s treasure and the former occupants of Whispering Manor through these detailed accounts.

I enjoyed the book, it was a fun and quick read. I loved the strong Mother and Daughter relationship between Cassie and Lily.

A new town.
A haunting legend.
New beginnings or the beginning of the end?

After Cassie MacGuire’s husband dies in a plane crash along with her father, both her and her mother, Lily Bennett, are left as widows. Looking to make a new start, they move together to the quiet seaside town of Hideaway Bay. But their new home, Whispering Manor, has a reputation stretching back centuries. Legends of ghosts, paranormal disturbances and pirate treasure are all associated with the former sea captain’s mansion, starting with the death of its first mistress, Henrietta Blanchard.


When Cassie stumbles upon Henrietta’s journal and Lily uncovers a more recent tragedy in the home, they begin to wonder if the stories may be fact instead of fiction. When the strange occurrences turn dangerous, Lily and Cassie will have to investigate to save their home and possibly even their very lives!


Ghosts, Lore & a House by the Shore is the charming first installment in this small, seaside town mother-daughter cozy mystery series by Nellie H. Steele.
