Abstract:

A young art student catches a thief-and finds her soul mate-in this charming, early YA novel from the million-selling "mistress of the 'cozy' mystery" (Los Angeles Times). Possessed of cool common sense and burning ambition, nineteen-year-old Corin Johansen leaves home to attend a prestigious art school in Boston. But Corin never met anyone back in Proctor's Crossing, Pennsylvania, like the larger-than-life landlady at her new boardinghouse. A former circus star known as Daring Dina who trained lions and leopards under the big top, Madame Despau-Davy now contents herself with teaching her four beloved pet ocelots tricks in the kitchen. Corin soon learns that the boardinghouse kitchen is supposedly haunted by the ghost of the Fat Lady from the circus, Dina's old friend Rosie Garside. Corin is skeptical, but when she cooks, she can't shake the feeling she's being watched. The tall redhead has caught the eye of some of the young male boarders: playboy Jack Banks and standoffish but gifted art student Alex Bodmin. But when Corin discovers jewelry hidden in the haunted kitchen and hears the real story of how Rosie met her demise, she begins to suspect one of the boarders may be a jewel thief-and possibly a murderer.
