Jerrye Sumrallabout this book: The Mystery of Wragg Swamp is the third book in the Bayshore Mysteries. It continues the series themes of mystery and adventure, history, the power of friendship, childhood innocence and finding courage in unlikely places.
As with my first two books, the writing of The Mystery of Wragg Swamp was a challenge but something I enjoyed doing. The idea for the story came from Mobile, Alabama’s festive Mardi Gras celebration and a parade float warehouse, located along Three Mile Creek, a very swampy and mysterious place. The warehouse is one of several used to assemble and house the floats before they are taken out to the parade.
A brief Synopsis:
Something strange is happening in Wragg Swamp!
First, the lights go out in the Mardi Gras float warehouse. Then mysterious sounds are heard. Next, an eerie cry is heard along the road to the float garage. Later, Jeff and his pals learn about a wild man in the swamp. Who is he and why does he live there? What truth do they learn about him? Could it be connected to the unexplained happenings around the float warehouse?
Amidst Mobile's festive Mardi Gras celebration, Jeff and his pals, along with an annoying girl named, Jessica, discover another mystery. A trip to an old warehouse in Wragg Swamp, a discovery in Uncle Ed's storage shed, a frightening storm, and getting lost and stranded in the swamp are all part of their dangerous venture. The lure of the swamp and the strange man, lead Jeff and his pals on an unforgettable journey that reveals the truth and teaches them valuable lessons in friendship and courage.
