New friendships are formed, while at the same time enemies lurk nearby. The closer they get to uncovering the truth behind the camp, the further they are pushed into danger and deceit. Can Sam and Alley put all of the pieces together before it’s too late? Follow them on another thrilling tale filled with excitement and adventure, along misty, high mountain trails and deep ravines, where the answers wait to be found! 

My Review: This book was a nice easy fun read, it is written for young children but I really enjoyed it.

Camp Whispering Pines is set just after book one but it can be read separately. The story starts off with Ally and Sam at home after solving the Mystery at Sam's Aunt and Uncles Inn, Ally's Aunt is a troop leader and she has a scholarship so that Sam can go to the Camp with Ally.

When they get to the camp they find out that they may be assigned to different cabins but luckily Ally and Sam get assigned to the same cabin which share a cabin with 3 other girls their age, Lexie who was at the camp earlier that summer at the last camp session and she seems to know everything, Becky a shy girl who seems to be scared of everything at the start but then she seems to relax and have fun and there is also Sandy who is a rich girl who doesn't want to be at camp. The girls all share the cabin with a camp counselor named Butterfingers who all the girls seem to get along with.

During their time at camp things start happening and Sam and Ally start getting the blame for it first they just get told off and have to help out in the kitchen, next they have to spend the day in isolation where they aren't allowed to join in with the camp activities and then they get told that they are being sent home the next day.

Sam and Ally get into trouble because someone puts food into their bags after being told that they cannot have food in their cabin, then Sam gets into trouble when shes on a horse trek so Lexie, Sandy and Becky decide to investigate along with Sam and Ally but Sam and Ally sneak out after curfew and get caught and they get kidnapped by the bad guys.

In the end you find out who was causing Sam and Ally to get into trouble, at first I thought it was one person but then after a while I figured out who the real troublemaker was and I was glad that Sam and Ally were both okay at the end.
