The Legend of Sleepy Harlow

In honor of Halloween, the League of Literary Ladies is reading the spooky classic, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, with its infamous headless horseman. But South Bass Island has its own headless legend—a Prohibition bootlegger named Charlie "Sleepy" Harlow. Decapitated by rival rum runners, Sleepy appears once a year in spectral form to search for his noggin.

This October, the Elkhart Ghost Getters (EGG) have returned to the island, claiming they have film footage of Sleepy’s ghost and determined to get more. They’re staying at Bea Cartwright’s B&B, but it’s Kate Wilder who isn’t happy to see them after they trashed her winery last year. When the EGG leader turns up dead, Kate becomes the prime suspect, and the other League members need to scramble to crack the case. Secret passages, hidden treasure, island hauntings . . . the League has plenty of tricks and treats ahead!
