Summary and Review:
It starts out with Nancy and her friend Helen riding on a motor boat when they see a storm brewing. Suddenly they are in an accident and are saved by Laura Pendleton who states she may need Nancy soon for a mystery. She says that her mom recently has died and she was contacted by the Abhorns who are responsible for her care since she is a minor. Lauren is to meet the Abhorns later that day she is nervous and when she finally meets Ms. Abhorn she senses something is not right. That is when the really mystery of the The Bungalow begins...
I really liked this book even though I could basically predict the ending towards the later middle half of the book. The character were engaging and you find yourself cheering for the good guys. The story itself was very good and I like this as much as the first Nancy book. I would recommend this for the age group stated above. I really can not wait till my daughter is old enough to appreciate this series. It does not seem really dated either.
I rate this book 4/5
