 Alice MacFarlane has once again let her adventurous spirit take her into harm’s way, and it’s up to Annie Dawson to find Alice and pull her out of the dangerous situation.

It seems like it was always that way. Back when Annie and Alice were teenagers, Alice seemed to always be getting into one scrape or another. That was when Annie was visiting Stony Point, Maine, and staying with her grandparents, Charlie and Betsy Holden, in their stately Victorian home, Grey Gables. In those innocent days, Alice was the one with the crazy schemes, and Annie was the one who had to judge whether or not the schemes were just too crazy.

But those innocent days didn’t leave Alice missing for days. The mystery begins when Annie finds a book in her grandfather’s collection in the attic of Grey Gables—now her home after she inherited it after the death of her grandmother. Written in 1925, the history of the Fuller family includes the story of a mysterious island in South Carolina wrapped up in an ancient curse. 

When Alice’s friend, Jim Parker—an author and photographer—makes a surprise visit to Stony Point, Annie suggests that Fuller’s Island might make an interesting chapter in his latest book. Annie, Alice and Jim all laugh off the book’s assertion that the island is haunted by ghost dogs after the curse was placed on it by a witch in the 19th century.

But it ceases to be fun and games when Alice and Jim go missing after visiting the island. Now it’s up to Annie, Ian Butler—Stony Point’s mayor—and the members of the Hook and Needle Club to save Alice when one of her carefree adventures once again goes awry.

The Characters

Annie has lived in Brookfield, Texas, for the last 28 years but grew up in Stony Point, Maine. At 49, she is still attractive with her gray-blond hair, but since her husband, Wayne, died of a heart attack last year, her green eyes have lost their sparkle. She doesn't know quite how she fits into this new, but lonely, phase of her life. So she contents herself with her crochet projects and her garden. Still, however, her life lacks focus and meaning.

A childhood friend of Annie's, Alice has lived in Stony Point all her life. She is divorced and lives next door to Grey Gables in the small but cozy carriage house that used to be the gatekeeper's house for the mansion on the hill. Annie is delighted to reconnect with her long-lost friend.

Mary Beth is the owner of the local yarn shop, A Stitch in Time, in the center of town. She has lived in Stony Point her whole life, has never been married and seems to be the self-appointed town mother. It's nearly impossible to keep a secret around her since she knows absolutely everything going on in town.

Annie's daughter LeeAnn lives in Dallas, Texas and has an independent nature. She and her husband, Herb, have 5-year-old twins, John and Joanna. LeeAnn is worried about her mother's well-being but keeps in touch on a regular basis.
