*Starred Review* Ollie, Coco, and Brian formed a deep bond after the events of Small Spaces (2018), and now the trio of friends, along with Coco's mom and Ollie's dad, are headed to a newly opened ski lodge after Ollie's dad won a contest. If this sounds like the set-up for a classic haunted house story, you're right on the money: there's an ominous ghostly figure on the road leading to the lodge; they arrive amid a terrible blizzard; the power goes out in the already dark building; both Ollie and Coco are beset by vivid nightmares; a ghost hunter arrives at the last minute; and, of course, there's terrifying taxidermy everywhere. But Arden is skilled in the art of misdirection—­this is more than just a riff on a classic trope. It would spoil too much to give away much more detail, but Arden handily transforms the haunted house story into something much richer, scarier, and more sinister, tricky and challenging for the trio to puzzle out. Arden is fantastic at cultivating atmosphere, and she uses that to great effect in this novel, particularly when it comes to describing the sensory experience of the lodge and the appearance of the many ghastly ghosts and creatures. Middle-graders who thrill to spooks and scares will find plenty (maybe even more than they bargained for!) here. Grades 5-8. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

This chilling sequel to Small Spaces (rev. 11/18) finds Ollie, Coco, and Brian trapped in a ski lodge full of ghosts, peril, and betrayal. The three friends and their parents are the only guests at Hemlock Lodge, until the arrival of mysterious Mr. Voland, who claims that the hotel is haunted. The children begin ghost-hunting with Mr. Voland, looking for answers about the haunted hotel and about Ollie's watch, which helps her communicate with her dead mother and which in the first book saved them from the "smiling man." Hemlock Lodge's creepy history gives this tale the necessary trappings of a classic ghost story (a ghost girl hides from the malicious Mother Hemlock; a dead skier appears at unexpected moments to deliver a silent warning to the kids). The second half of the novel takes the danger one step further by re-introducing old villains and raising the stakes. We get a closer look at Coco's point of view in this installment, and readers will hope for another entry-maybe one from Brian's perspective-by the time the friends finish their harrowing adventure.
