Sanibel Island, Florida, is known for its gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, beautiful shelling beaches, and swaying palms right on the Gulf of Mexico. It is a place of peace, relaxation, and fun for families. The four cousins, Kate, Emma, Harrison, and Parker, are traveling there with their parents for a wonderful family vacation. They are all so excited to be together for two whole weeks!
Little do they know the danger and mystery that awaits them there as they discover the mysterious past of this tranquil island. For Sanibel Island in the 1800's was a haven for pirates who stored their treasures, their gold doubloons in hidden places on Sanibel, Captiva, and the surrounding islands of the West Coast of Florida. Legendary pirates with names such as Black Caesar and Gaspar sailed these waters and came ashore to plunder and kidnap helpless victims for ransom. Captiva Island gets its name from the captives who were held there by the notorious figures, Black Caesar and Gaspar.
The four cousins will come face-to-face with a gang of modern-day pirates seeking treasure and untold wealth. Their target is the Sanibel Lighthouse where stories of hidden gold in its walls beckon to them.
Once again, Kate, Emma, Harrison, and Parker will have another mystery to solve. Who are the black-clad figures with flashlights and lanterns in the middle of the night? What are they doing? The four cousins will face harrowing adventures in the midst of an angry sea, kidnapping, and escapes. They will make a new friend in Mack, the elderly keeper of the Sanibel Lighthouse who will help save them. Once again, they will learn the importance of love, forgiveness, and helping others who have lost their way.
Come join the cousins in their quest to solve the puzzle of The Haunted Lighthouse!
