We won't be beaten by anyone. Guaranteed

Samantha Ann Carlton would rather spend her summer vacation anywhere but a spooky old house in Wisconsin...like Lake Geneva! Somehow, Sam knows it's going to take more than a few days to find a missing painting no bigger than her hand. Maybe things won't be so bad, she thinks, since she gets to take a friend's lovable but mischievous Dachshund, Petey, and her best friend Lita. If they're lucky, the three of them can find the miniature replica of Van Gogh's "Starry Night" and help Sam's mother get it to the museum, where it belongs. But it's not going to be easy, Sam realizes, when she meets the crabby housekeeper, a dog-hating gardener, and discovers that her family has some spooky secrets. Then Petey digs up an ancient curse, and Sam fears her friendship with Lita is doomed... Can Sam find the miniature masterpiece before it's too late? Will she and Lita go home forever friends-or enemies? * 2009 Eppie Award Finalist for best YA/Children's eBook * * #1 Kindle book under Miniatures *
