Nikki Leigh. Lilah and the Locket. Write Words, Inc., 2007.

After Kristie Connelly’s dog Lilah finds a human bone at the base of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, an entire skeleton is unearthed from the sand dune. Kristie joins the investigation and quickly discovers that the dead woman may be her aunt, who has been missing for fifteen years. Set in 1954, the mystery is tied to the creation of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, both the government’s initial work on roads and dunes before World War II and the project’s completion in the 1950s.

  1. Thank you so much for posting information about Lilah and the Locket. Early in 2009 I’ll be working on a sequel to Lilah and I can’t wait to get started on that novel. The link I included here is a direct link to all sorts of information about Lilah and the Locket, including background information, the introduction and first chapter and much more.
