Frost Hollow Hall

Frost Hollow HallFrost Hollow Hall by Emma Carroll
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A delicious ghost story, with a young heroine determined to solve the mystery behind a tragic death:

Tilly feels badly betrayed and hurt when abandoned by her father and sister, leaving her and her hard working, world weary mother to fend for themselves. When a dare with the good looking butcher’s boy goes horribly wrong, disaster leads to opportunity; Tilly is offed a house maids position at the creepy Frost Hollow Hall, a place where staff are notoriously hard to keep.

Serving staff are clearly terrified of ghostly goings on, and Tilly is determined to get to the bottom of it all. At a level quite suitable for lower secondary school students and above, the book should appeal to those who like a good mystery, a historical ‘Downtonesque’ setting, and just a little light romance.
