Angel Fridley | 2 comments Looking for a book read to my grade school class in the 1980s about a group of kids finding a note in an old tree, that note led them to the attic for another note and so on until they figure out their dad was placing the clues to keep them interested during the summer. I can't remember a lot of details, but i remember their surprise when it's their dad and it's not a ghost or really old from the past.

Sea View secret by Elizabeth Kinsey (pseud. Eleanor Clymer).

I wish I could remember the title or more details, for I'm really not certain, but I read up on some of the synopsis posted and it does not seem to be this one.
It was a long time ago! Thank you for your suggestion

Lara Miller | 11 comments I was looking for a similar book and found the last book in the Melendy quartet, Spiderweb for Two. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

The ending is different from what you've mentioned, but maybe it's worth a try.
