"It happened again," begins the sequel to Monster of the Month Club. The magic that makes the monsters come to life is sparked once more. Rilla Harmony Earth is faced with more monsters to hide from her quirky Aunt Poppy and Sparrow, the ultimate "Earth Mother."
Sparrow's mentor, Mother Lapis Lazuli, known for her gift of Sight, comes to the Harmony House Bed & Breakfast. The last thing Rilla needs is someone who possesses a sixth sense when she's harboring monsters in her attic. Plus, somebody is on to her secret--Joshua Banks, her one true love.

Autumn brings monster surprises to Rilla Harmony Earth. A computer and modem for her attic bedroom at Harmony House Bed and Breakfast means she can surf the Internet as Earthgirl7. Unfortunately, the monsters find their way into cyberspace, too, using Rilla's screen name--instant trouble!
But the best part of "connecting to the globe" is that Rilla now has a way to search for her father. Meanwhile, clases begin for the home-schoolers, bringing Rilla back together with her one true love.

Excitement arrives at Harmony House along with Christmas. Aunt Poppy and Jose are getting married on Christmas Eve.

According to the report in the Juniper Daily News, Robbie Zuffel and his twin sister, Beka, were victims of a boating accident on Kickingbird Lake, along with their dog, Thatch. What the report doesn't say is that the trio returns fifty years later--as ghosts!
Their house has been turned into a rental at the Kickingbird Lake Resort, so now they have to put up with tourists, who don't know the house is "haunted" by the twins and their ornery ghost dog.
