Paige Harper’s worst nightmare is about come true in the Hidden Object game Paige Harper and the Tome of Mystery! One night, while searching the Library for a rare book, Paige suddenly finds herself in a secret room with a handsome spirit trapped inside. Many years ago he stumbled across a mysterious book, which trapped him inside the Tome and now he needs Paige’s help to solve the book’s mystery in order to free all the trapped souls. Worried she will be stuck there forever, Paige doesn’t waste any time and immediately embarks on a quest to solve the mystery, only to realize that before she can do that, she must first help various characters in famous literary works – like Hamlet, Sherlock Holmes and Romeo & Juliet – solve their own problems!

If you’re looking for juicy mystery combined with amazing visuals and a good storyline, the Hidden Object game Victorian Mysteries: Woman in White should do the trick! Based on the 1858 serial “The Woman in White”, one of the earliest mystery novels ever to be published, the game sticks close enough to the facts for those who have read and enjoyed the novel.
Victorian Mysteries: Woman in White begins as our hero’s train breaks down and he has to walk the rest of the way to Cumberland on a dark chilly night. Leaving difficult times behind in London, Walter Hartright is busy contemplating his new position as an Art Teacher at Limmeridge House when he suddenly runs into a mysterious woman dressed in white who seems to be hiding from something… or someone?
While initially he thinks nothing of it, the plot thickens when he arrives at Limmeridge House only to realize that one of his students – Laura Fairlie – bears an astonishing resemblance to the woman in white who, rumor has it, escaped from an asylum.
