Doom Lake Holiday by Tom Henighan

This is an exciting book about a seventeen year old boy named Chip who goes on a family vacation. His dad has rented a cottage by a lake to spend the time, but crazy, unanticipated things happen and the family moves over to an island where Chip and his family suspect the house is haunted. They get tied up in a mysterious past and Chip is determined to find out what is going on. This is an amazing mystery full of detail and adventure.

I think the author is good at describing the surroundings and the characters appearances. It feels like you are on the island. The main character, Chip, is very realistic and is kind of heroic. He sounds like a nice boy that is determined to find out what is going on on the spooky island. Overall it was a good mystery book. It was a little confusing at the beginning, but once I got into it I couldn't put it down. I think that almost anyone would like this book because it has a little bit of everything: mystery,adventure,ghosts,some history,and even some romance.
