Summary
"Reeling from the strange and confusing discoveries their adventure in The Case of the Missing Men, the Hobtown Junior Detective Club is looking forward to Christmas break when two of its Teen Detectives--Brennan and Pauline--are made to attend an extra-credit boarding school called Knotty Pines. After attending their first classes, however, they realize they may have stumbled on their weirdest case yet! It's not just that the Headmaster and the Headmistress are unusually strict, it's that they seem to be controlling the students, transforming them into idiots and bullies. On the final night of their stay, the boys and girls are paired up to pledge eternal allegiance to the long-dead Lord Hobb--and to each other--in unholy matrimony! Isolated from their fellow sleuths, our intrepid young investigators have to rely on a lady ghost, a crazy hermit, and a mysterious mini-man to lift a curse that has plagued the good people of Hobtown for centuries! Bizarre, funny, frightening, and heartwarming, this latest installment of the Hobtown Mystery Stories brings our teens one step closer to uncovering the haunting truth of their funny little east-coast village."--
