Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Back at the Winterhouse hotel for another holiday season, Elizabeth and Freddy dig deeper into the mystery surrounding Riley S. Granger, a hotel guest who left behind odd artifacts--one being a magical book that the evil Gracella Winters attempted to use the year before to gain destructive power over the entire Falls lineage. The two friends follow a trail of clues, inadvertently attracting the attention of a suspicious new hotel guest: Elana Vesper. The clock is ticking as Elizabeth and Freddy struggle to figure out whether Elana is merely a pawn or a player in the plot to revive the spirit of Gracella. If that wasn't enough, Elizabeth suspects she is coming into her own magic ability--and she's fearful it might lead her right into Gracella's web. For fans of the Book Scavenger series and The Mysterious Benedict Society.A Christy Ottaviano Book

Horn Book Review

Telekinetically gifted Elizabeth returns to the enchanting winter hotel owned by her grandfather. There Elizabeth and her friend Freddy find a second object of power by following anagram clues contained in a mysterious seal--but evil Great-aunt Gracella tries to steal it from beyond the grave. The plot lacks impetus and the magic-facilitated ending is somewhat incoherent, but a first-rate setting and nicely diverse cast of characters carry the novel. (c) Copyright 2019.
