Phyllis A. Whitney: The Mystery of the Gulls

May 1974 is the Signet publication of Phyllis A. Whitney's young adult mystery entitled The Mystery of the Gulls. Taffy Saunders was new to Mackinac Island where her mother has inherited a hotel! Sunset House is scaring guests and her mother has to manage it for the summer in order to claim ownership! Can Taffy figure out what's happening?

Allan Kass illustrates our young couple near the lake where the hero is protective of the heroine as they search for clues on a stormy day. I like their large collars and sweaters which seem very 1970's. Otherwise, both are just too cute for words. It's neat, too, seeing Allan's illustrations of teenagers. Enjoy!
