Isobel was very angry not to have been asked to join the Fete committee, and Mrs. Freeman decided to tackle Mrs. Sandiman about it. While Gerard Kingsley and Hichens were with Sally at the cottage, Francis Austin arrived and told them the story of the hoax ghost at Clare House. Mrs. Freeman wrote her first column for the Parkwood Hill Gazette. Dotty agreed that Renee should live with Mrs. Morgan at Kenton. Jenny decided to join Hilary on her houseboat for a week.
