Texas Gothic by Rosemary Clement-Moore

Just finished this great book set in the Texas hill country! Two sisters Phin and Amy are watching their aunt's farm while she's on a vacation. When dead bodies start showing up at the ranch next to them, the archeological team from UT begin researching the bones while the sisters investigate the ghosts who are attacking random people. One ghost even attaches himself to Amy. Yikes!  This is great fun with a small amount of romance thrown in for a real Texas romp! Check it out in our library!
