Ghosts of Tupelo Landing by Sheila Turnage

Ghosts of Tupelo Landing by Sheila Turnage 
Kathy Dawson Books (Penguin), 2014

from Goodreads:
When Miss Lana makes an Accidental Bid at the Tupelo auction and winds up the mortified owner of an old inn, she doesn't realize there's a ghost in the fine print. Naturally, Desperado Detective Agency (aka Mo and Dale) opens a paranormal division to solve the mystery of the ghost's identity. They've got to figure out who the ghost is so they can interview it for their history assignment (extra credit). But Mo and Dale start to realize that the Inn isn't the only haunted place in Tupelo Landing. People can also be haunted by their own past. As Mo and Dale handily track down the truth about the ghost (with some help from the new kid in town), they discover the truth about a great many other people, too.

A laugh out loud, ghostly, Southern mystery that can be enjoyed by readers visiting Tupelo Landing for the first time, as well as those who are old friends of Mo and Dale.

Sheila Turnage won a Newbery Honor with Three Times Lucky (2013) and here she is revisiting Tupelo and hoping for the gold this time.  She's bringing the same cast of characters with a little ghostly twist but will that be enough or will the judges feel like they are reading the same "mo" same old??
