The Legend of Sleepy Harlow

League of Literary Ladies, #3

I just finished reading The Legend of Sleepy Harlow and I really liked it. The storyline is great and I really liked the characters.

It's Halloween and The League of Literary Ladies have been reading, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow", by Washington Irving. Added to this is the South Bass Island legend of another headless ghost. What are they going to do when Kate Wilder is still mad after last year because her winery was wrecked? So when someone turns up dead who had a part in this all think that it is Kate's doing. The hunt is on to figure solve the case.

I have never read The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and I would love to read it with these characters. The town legend was also an interesting twist to the book "group".


Book Blurb for The Legend of Sleepy Harlow

It takes more than a lurid legend to scare off the League of Literary Ladies?

For Halloween, the Literary Ladies have chosen to read Washington Irving’s spooky classic, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, with its infamous headless horseman. But South Bass Island has its own headless legend?of a Prohibition bootlegger named Charlie ?Sleepy” Harlow. Decapitated by rival rumrunners, Harlow appears once a year in spectral form to search for his noggin.

This October, the Elkhart Ghost Getters (EGG) have returned to the island. The group claims that they have film footage of Harlow’s ghost, and are determined to get more. They’re staying at Bea Cartwright’s B and B, but it’s Kate Wilder who isn’t happy to see them after they trashed her winery last year. When the EGG leader turns up dead, Kate becomes the prime suspect, and the other League members need to scramble to crack the case.
