Below are 3 comments from various websites which give an excellent description;

“A wonderful whodunit which stands the test of time. Written in the late 20's or early 30's it is obviously a different time, but the characters are real and lively. I've reread it about three times now, and pick up new things each time. I'm sorry Ms. Allen didn't write more! (or at least have more on Kindle!)
Basically two high schoolers are on vacation in an "up east" village. They make friends and have an intriguing mystery to solve. But what I really like is the "old timey" touches, as in the one boy picking them up in his horse and wagon, and the ride they had in the bumber seat of the other boy's auto.

This is a treat for those of us who remember times when there was no internet, climate change or even an available phone”
