There was magic in the air on that warm August morning.

The lasses—Kaylyn, Kirsten, and Payton—and laddie, Jack, are back for a visit with Nana and Papa at their country home. The three lasses have something special to show their friend Chloe Rose, who has yet to discover the wonders the woods hold. After finishing their 'special project,' something mystical and magical happens.

In addition to all the magic, Jack discovers a darker side of the woods. Luckily Papa is there to help.

See for yourself in Sandra McCone's fourth book in the Three Little Lasses Series, The Woods Keep Secrets!
