Minnie Crockwell, recreational vehicle enthusiast and traveler, is heading south to warmer climates by way of Highway 101, also known as the Oregon Coast Highway and Pacific Highway. She stops for a few days in the quaint little seaside town of Florence, Oregon, for a stay at the Tuscan Sands RV Park.
Although the park hardly lives up to its evocative name, the sand dunes of the Florence beaches most certainly do. When in Florence…
Minnie wastes no time heading to the beach for a walk with her nineteenth-century ghost companion, Peregrine Ebenezer (Ben) Alvord. Even if it is the middle of December. Less people on the beach though, right? What could be more relaxing than walking on a nearly deserted Pacific Northwest beach?
But the dangerous and erratic driver of a blue Jeep, the fierce coastal storm that sweeps through overnight, a barking dog that paws at the sand, and the discovery of a body partially submerged beneath a log on the beach all conspire to take the relax out of relaxing.
Against her will and Ben’s words of caution, Minnie cannot help but try to solve the mystery of the Trouble in Florence.
