My Review:

This story sets out as any other story we learn about the background of Nancy and then in then by the third chapter the mystery begins. This mystery is about the whearabouts of a second will left by Josiah. The Tophans seem to think that the money from Mr. Crowly belongs to them since they took care of him for years before his death. Ms. Drew quickly finds out that he has other friends that and the he possibly had a second will from the old lady Abby Rowen he one of her rants. Being the curious girl she is Nancy decided to find out the truth. Along the way she finds about two sisters who were told by Josiah that they would be inheriting money from him when he dies.So the adventure begins and with tons of excitement for your little girl and the young at heart.

I really liked this story and it was quite a page-turner. I almost could not put it down but life got in the way. I used to enjoy Nancy Drew mysteries as a kid but I never read the original ones. I think I read the files series. This book grabs your attention from the very first page. I hope to introduce Nancy Drew to my daughter when she is older.

I rate this a 5/5

I loved this series as a child too (in the 50s & 60s.) glad to see they are still around!

Yes, they are you can also catch some of the orginals from the 1930's too. Which I like slightly better. Both are good though.
