Summary: By mistake Nancy Drew receives a letter from England intended for an heiress, also named Nancy Drew. When Nancy undertakes a search for the missing young woman, it becomes obvious that a ruthless, dangerous man is determined to prevent her from finding the heiress or himself. Clues that Nancy unearths lead her to believe that the villainous Edgar Nixon plans to marry the heiress and then steal her inheritance.
My Review: Okay, I haven't read a Nancy Drew book in a good year or two, and I've been longing for a good mystery, so I decided to put this one on hold for me to read.
I actually remember this book because I was trying to read yet something happened that didn't make me finish.
When I began reading, the only thing that ran through my head was, "This is too repetitive."
Repetitive?! That's all I could think about? And after that small comment, I never looked at the book the same. If a part of the book sounded awkward, my writer mind would say, 'Oh! Why not take a second and see if you can fix that part?'. I'm actually really surprised that I made it through the whole book.
I still love Nancy Drew, don't get me wrong, and I still love
The reason why is because you found out who the crook was in, what, the first chapter? That made the whole book like, 'Yeah, I know who did this!' but it was very unsatisfying because I am always excited to find out at the end who the crook was, not at the very beginning. Also, I felt like the whole entire mystery was figured out and that the only thing the characters did in the story was elaborate on the so called 'mystery'.
Honestly, I was just very disappointed. Don't get me wrong, it's a great book and other people might adore it, but it just didn't flow for me.
