The activities of Baby-sitting and supernatural investigating don’t usually go hand in hand, but there’s nothing usual about Stella. In her second adventure, Stella Sedgewick is in deep when Potato, the boy she’s baby-sitting goes missing, right from under her nose. Now the case is personal, and she’ll have to use all investigating skills to find her missing ward, even if it means searching a haunted carnival to save the boy from an untimely cooking. She wants the truth, but she must get Potato back, and getting either is going to be all in a night's work.
