Title: The Steele Secrets Series Box Set


A cemetery. A school. A tree. Each with its own ghosts. 


The ability to see ghosts was never an ability Mary Steele ever dreamed of having, even after watching EVERY episode of The Ghost Whispererer. But once she sees these murdered souls, she has no choice but to hunt down the truth, even the truth that some people would rather her never find. 


Mary's courage is tested as she is threatened and bullied, and she sometimes wants to quit. But this quirky teen doesn't stop, even in the face of violence, prejudice, and long-seeded racism. 


The Steele Secrets series is magical realism for the young and the young at heart. If you enjoy a bit of magic mixed with a bit of justice and a good dose of history, then you'll love the Steele Secrets series. Buy the full box set now and dive into the ghost stories of history today.

--Abigail's Targeted Tip:

When creating blurbs for box sets, always include the number of books within the set (and any additional novellas, etc.)
