Overview

Accidents keep happening at the mountain bed & breakfast where fourteen-year-old Emily Sanders is working with her friend Mary. A broken step, a stinky septic tank, an invasion of bees, even a fire threaten the livelihood of the innkeeper, Mary's grandmother. Emily suspects foul play, but only when a crashed van links drugs to the inn do her friends start to help her investigate. Soon Emily, Mary, and neighbor boy Alex are over their heads in danger. This is an exciting sequel to the NSTA/CBC award winner Something Stinks!
