Peeking Through the Key Hole
By Iwana Seeitall
Fifteen year old Tomasina’s parents own a rambling Victorian boarding house in Vermont where a murder has taken place. The exterior and wrap-around porch hint at a glimpse into the past, a time when folks did not feel the need to lock their front doors. Now, each door has a modern deadbolt positioned ten inches above the original keyholes.
When doors are locked up tight for the night Tomasina removes her shoes and the emerald stud piercings in her eyebrows and flits quietly up and down the halls peering through the holes just below the glass doorknobs. She holds the skeleton key to the secrets that reside behind each door.
While investigators are methodically searching for clues, she discovers who murdered Mr. Mayhew. Nancy Drew has nothing on Peeping Tomasina who is discovered by the murderer with her eye to the keyhole.
