Book Review: The Stolen Ghosts by Icy Sedgwick

When Sarah and her family move to a mansion in Northumberland, she doesn't expect to find ghosts. A dashing Cavalier named Fowlis Westerby has been assigned to the house for a scheduled haunting. It should be a routine assignment. All he has to do is scare Sarah and her parents, but things begin to go wrong when Sarah finds his anchor, the device that holds him to the house. And there's trouble in the ghostly plane where it seems that only Sarah can help Fowlis.
This is a fun story for teens who like paranormal mysteries, or actually any reader who enjoys a good ghost story. The writer has a nice style. I especially liked the bits of history that are thrown in here and there that really add to the story. Sarah is perfect as the inquisitive teen heroine. Fowlis and his tricks reminded me of the Canterville Ghost, one of Oscar Wilde's short stories.
I enjoyed reading this book and recommend it if you're looking for an entertaining read.
