Fiction Galore!!!

Hey...this blog has been so far completely bereft of here are 3 fairly easy questions to kick off...

1. “I have endeavoured in this Ghostly little book, to raise the Ghost of an Idea, which shall not put my readers out of humour with themselves, with each other, with the season, or with me. May it haunt their houses pleasantly, and no one wish to lay it. Their faithful Friend and Servant,_______ .December, 1843.”

This is the starting foreword of which famous book? (The blank space is the initials of the author.) Name both the author and the book.

2. Captain Hastings (narrator in the first few Poirot books) meets his future wife in a train in the second book Murder on the Links. He is very much infatuated with her throughout the book and aids her escape when Poirot suspects her of a crime. She eventually is found innocent and redeems herself by saving all their lives. Her actual name is mentioned later in the books. By what name does she introduce herself to Hastings?

3. In the Hardy Boys series, Iola Morton (sister of Chet Morton, best friend of The Hardy Boys) is initially the girlfriend of Joe Hardy till she dies in a book. Who replaces her as Joe’s girlfriend in later books?

Answers -
1. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens...An easy one...The blank is C.D, his initials.
2. She introduces herself as Cinderella.
3. Vanessa Bender.
