New Release Book 3, The Abbey In Peril
After returning to France from Ireland, the detective team travels to the timeline vortex to finish second semester at the Abbey in the year 1659. Once at the vortex, the girls learn it’s closed and their return is forbidden. But rules never stopped them before. So with help from two time-travel conjurers, the team goes back in secret. Even bodyguard and ex-spy, Gustav, is apprehensive and insists on joining them on the mission. Their school and its teachers are threatened by war playing out in the forest near the Abbey. If that’s not worrisome enough, a favorite teacher has been kidnapped by fierce enemy soldiers and the girls vow to save her. Because they return in secret, the team must dress and act like seventeenth-century peasants to avoid being tossed into dungeons, forever stuck in the past.
Does the team save everyone and make it home to current time?
Read the final story to find out.
Twins Aimée and Juliette are shocked by their parent’s pronouncement, “You're going to boarding school.” So unfair! Still, no amount of crying changes their sentence. Soon, they quit the quiet countryside of France for the Abbey, an uncommon school for girls with paranormal abilities. The uncommon becomes the unbelievable when a gyrating timeline-vortex hurls them back to to the year 1659, to the outlandish school run by a mysterious sisterhood. Once there, the girls discover their own roommate is possessed by a ghost ruining her life. Never ones to dodge a mystery, the twins set out to solve Charlotte’s ghost story. They must trek through a beast-filled forbidden forest to seek help from an impulsive wizard. To avoid the Abbess and her rules and a bevy of unforgettable characters, the girls ultimately create a paranormal detective team of the highest order.
