It's July of 1904 and Suzanna Snow (Zanna to her friends) is stuck in sleepy Loch Harbor, New Brunswick, helping her parents manage the beautiful Rosemount Hotel, but she really wants to be a detective like her uncle, the famous Bruce Snow. While she spends her days serving tea to ornery guests and trying to get the biggest lobsters for the cook's banquet table, Zanna takes notes on the hotel guests and any peculiar circumstances she encounters. . . an abandoned cigar and pair of socks on the beach. . . a bellhop's angry attitude. She longs to take a trip to Boston to study with her uncle, but he doesn't even return her letters. Zanna's summer looks like it will be another long boring stretch of chores. . . until little Maddie Cook disappears during a power outage in a thunderstorm, and Zanna is the only witness to her abduction.
Read about Suzanna Snow's adventures to see if you can solve the mystery of The Midnight Tunnel. And, look for the sequel The Mastermind Plot coming in March, 2012.
