Honeymoon Phase

On the eve of their wedding day, Frank and Marion Braid retreat to the solitude of a Smoky Mountains cabin, where Marion soon discovers that Frank will stop at nothing to make their honeymoon--and the rest of their lives together--perfect.It’s autumn half-term and 12-year-old Lou Elliott and her friends Jack, also 12, and his younger siblings David and Emily are reunited at the Welsh holiday resort of Abersoch. After an eventful summer the children are not expecting anything untoward to happen this time, but that’s before they come across a strange, ramshackle old farmhouse while out walking across the moors not far from Abersoch. It’s the home of a lonely old lady in her 90s – and she’s at her wits’ end, certain it’s haunted. But is it, or is there a more rational explanation? Something Strange in the Cellar, first published on Smashwords in April 2013, is a wholesome, traditional-style short novel (just over 29,000 words), suitable for all ages from nine upwards, and is book 3 in the Lou Elliott Mystery Adventure Series by George Chedzoy. It comes after the full-length novels Smugglers at Whistling Sands and The Missing Treasure but it's ok to read it first.
