Review by: Ginger Snappe on Aug. 06, 2013 : star star star star star
What a great story! The Witch of Maple Park is a bewitching ride with Detective Harry Grouch. Not only is it a fascinating mystery, it is a very interesting one that parallels an actual, historical case. If reincarnation intrigues you, you especially will enjoy The Witch of Maple Park. This book is another winner by Robert Tell! My hope is that it is only the first of a series of Harry Grouch cases that Mr. Tell will write.
