Synopsis: The fun continues in book #3 of the Samantha Wolf Mysteries! 

What should be a quiet week at the beach turns into the most challenging mystery that Sam and Ally have uncovered yet. What’s the truth behind the odd family renting the cabin next-door? Is the tale of a sea creature and haunted lighthouse just a myth? How does a missing girl, and suspicious boat tie into all of it? The girls can’t solve this puzzle on their own, so they turn to their brothers for help. 

Travel with them to the scenic Washington Coast and into the Olympic Rainforest, where the four have to work together to untangle the clues and fit the mysterious pieces together.

My Review: I loved this book it was an easy and fun read.

In The Beach House Myster Sam's dad is getting ready to leave for a big fishing job oversee so while he is overseeing some business he takes the whole family to the beach house that a friend is letting them use and Sam's parents let Sam and her older brother Hunter bring a friend with them so Sam asks Ally to go and Hunter asks his friend John to go, John is Ally's older brother, but as usuall letting Sam and Ally go on a trip together never proves to be a good thing.

When they get to the beach house the girls help look after the twins so the boys can go to the beach and when they finally get to go explore they meet their neighbours little girl who acts strangely and when Sam and Ally get caught talking to her an angry man shouts the little girl in and tells Sam and Ally to stay away from her claiming that she has problems.

The girls decide one day to go into town to see what Sam's dad is doing and once there he lets the girls go shopping telling them where to meet him for dinner, while they are shopping they see an old man who tells them a story about a sea creature who is around the lighthouse that the girls can see from their beach house and this peaks the girls curiosity and they want to ask him about how they can get to the lighthouse but the man vanishes. Before the girls leave Sam goes into a shop and buys toys for her sisters and then they go to the marina to meet Sam's dad but while looking at all the boats one of the toys Sam bought gets dropped and goes on to a boat so Sam decides to retreave the toy without asking permission and she gets caught by some nasty men.

Later on in the book Sam and Ally go on a walk up a trail they found with their brothers the trail used to lead to the light house but has long been washed away, while hiking they end up having to rescue their neighbours mum who is stuck after falling and when they get back to their beach house they get into trouble because the neighbour has complained about them.

Towards the end of the book the girls go looking for the old man to see how to get to the lighthouse because they believe that someone is stranded there, the man tells them and with the boys help the girls get to the lighthouse they get captured by some men and locked in the lighthouse with a young girl who is being held captive by the nasty men from the boat. The girl happens to be their neighbours daughter and is being held because her captors want her mum to do something bad but Sam is smart and manages to climb out of their cell and break them out.

This series keeps getting better and I can't wait to finish the next book.
