"Terrific young adult paranormal mystery"
Eighteen years old mainlanders Quinn Hunter and Holly Gates
arrive in Hawaii where the two friends will work for the
summer at Barrington House. However, even before arriving
at their workplace, the taxi driver acts strangely towards
them and drops them off at the exit from the highway as he
refuses to enter the hotel's driveway.
The two teens meet their employer Edward Barrington and his
weird sister Edith. They quickly find out why the natives
avoid this place as the hotel is haunted and not just by
Edith or Buttons the crazy cat. With the help of a guest
Jackson "Jax" Caine, whose parents are also here, Quinn and
Holly investigate what happened to cause a ghost to haunt
the hotel. Another guest Jack Trainer also assists.
However, someone wants the four sleuths to quit and is
willing to turn them into spirits haunting Barrington House.
PRETTY PRETTY is a terrific young adult paranormal mystery
starring three likable teenagers struggling to solve the
haunting while just trying to stay alive. The key to K.C.
Oliver's fabulous story line is that the audience is never
sure until the end as to whether the Barrington siblings,
some other mortal, or a ghost is behind the danger. Readers
will treasure this fine thriller and look forward to more
investigations into the unexplained by the likable
