Meg Duncan #3 The Treasure Nobody Saw and #4 The Ghost of Hidden Springs

In Meg Duncan #3, The Treasure Nobody Saw, Meg enjoys the thrill of a thunderstorm.  As she looks outside, she is astonished to see a car drive up to the deserted Haywood house.  A figure in white goes up the steps.  Meg cannot get anybody to believe her, but she is certain that someone is staying in the Haywood house.  Meg investigates and becomes acquainted with the family that is staying in the house.

On page 114, Meg suggests that Abby put something white in the attic window if she needs something.  Meg tells her that she read about it in a book, and Abby remarks that she remembers the book.  In Nancy Drew #28, The Clue of the Black Keys, Terry signals by putting something white in the attic window.  I wonder if this is the book.

This book is very good.

In Meg Duncan #4, The Ghost of Hidden Springs, the old Hannigan house is reputedly haunted by the spirit of a young girl named Kathleen who drowned.  Several people see the ghost near the summer house.  Meg and Kerry find flowers on Kathleen's grave, then they meet a girl named Kathleen who is staying in the area with her mother.  Kathleen looks just like the dead girl.  What is going on?

As I read this book, I noticed that the sentences are not as short and that I like the style better.  I assume that this has to do with the different authors who wrote the books.  In any case, the series keeps getting better and better.  This is a very good book.
