It's A Boo-K Bash at the Begonia House!

Welcome to Mr. Morrow's Haunted Parlor! 
We're celebrating the release of book 2 in the Fairday Morrow series. The next case in the DMS files is open for investigation. 
Anything's possible! Mwahaha...
 Find out what's happening at the Begonia House. 
Catch the book trailer!

Fairday Morrow had no clue that moving from Manhattan to the small town of Ashpot, Connecticut, would lead to an unsolved mystery. Her parents’ dream of renovating a crumbling Victorian, called the Begonia House, into a bed and breakfast had seemed like treachery at the time. But Fairday found out that her new house kept secrets, and once inside its twisted front gates, anything was possible. When mysterious notes start showing up warning that a librarian is in trouble and a bookworm is eating words, Fairday thinks the Begonia House has more skeletons in its closets. What happens to stories when their words get eaten?
Early reviews for Fairday Morrow and the Talking Library

"Fairday jumps into a new world within her own, along with her trusty sidekick friends, and meets fascinating new characters. It's a world of bookworms (who actually eat words!) and wordweavers (cool job!) where children are needed to save books from disappearing. Books truly live and breathe in this story - literally! What a fun place to be where ink is alive and books can talk and you can enter stories and meet characters." 
~ Donna Galanti, Author

"Stephanie Robinson and Jessica Haight have created a satisfying sequel to the first book in the Fairday Morrow series. Once again, we return the the quaint town of Ashpot and follow Fairday, Marcus, and Lizzy (the DMS) as they solve a puzzling, paranormal mystery. The secrets of the Begonia House deepen and the DMS discover the Talking Library. Bravo to the authors for creating such a cool library with poisonous punctuation--brilliant! Loved the uniqueness of the world building there."
~ Kourtney Heintz, Author 

"If you love riddles, you will absolutely enjoy Fairday Morrow and the Talking Library. The second in the Fairday Morrow series, Fairday and her Detective Mystery Squad jump right into their next mystery."

Stephanie and Jess met freshman year of high school. It was in English class where they first discovered they liked the same books. Their friendship grew, and over the years they went on to work as servers together, go to the same college for a short time, and they even became roommates for a while. Many books were discussed, but none were ever written. Now, after the release of their first middle grade novel, The Secret Files of Fairday Morrow, Stephanie and Jess are excited to keep building the mystery in Fairday Morrow and the Talking Library. Anything’s possible!
