Kit is visiting Aunt Millie in Mountain Hollow, Kentucky, in 1934. When a professor arrives to study Kentucky mountain traditions, Kit is thrilled to help with her research--until it becomes clear that somebody doesn't want outsiders nosing around. Kit decides to find out who's making trouble, even if it means venturing into Lonesome Hollow in the dark of night. Girls will enjoy solving the mystery right along with Kit. This latest book from Kathleen Ernst, previously nominated for both the Edgar and the Agatha Award, also includes an illustrated Looking Back section to provide historical context.
