Overview

When Nancy Drew and her friends arrive at Misty Lake, they meet pretty, red-haired Cecily Curtis, who seeks Nancy’s help in solving two mysteries. One concerns Cecily’s fiancé, Niko Van Dyke, a popular singer who believes that his record company is cheating him of royalty payments. The other invovles a family treasure hidden before the start of the Civil War; Cecily’s only clue is half of a gold locket. Nancy’s investigations lead her to Pudding Stone Lodge, where the sinister Driscoll family lives. Strange coincidences give Nancy plenty of opportunity to test her sleuthing skills. Braving a series of dangerous situations and discouraging developments, the alert young detective perseveres in her attempts to solve both mysteries and reveal the astounding secrets of Pudding Stone Lodge.

For nostalgic reasons I went back to read a Nancy Drew book. When I was a kid, I read a lot of Nancy Drew. I was prepared, when picking up a copy today, that my adult self wouldn't find it as good as my kid self did and that that memory of my childhood would be changed. I was pleasantly surprised, however, to discover that Nancy has staying power. She drew me in and kept me reading, trying to figure out the mystery. Sure there were a lot of convenient coincidences and the bad guys are relatively tame, but it was exciting and fun. So here's to Nancy and all those girls out there who grew up reading her. You, go girls!

Nancy goes to do a job for her father, comes across a mystery person, and finds that she's involved in the job. The mysteries get compounded with long lost relations, stolen children, family fortunes, a ghostly steamboat, and stolen recordings. Naturally these things all fit together easily and Nancy manages to figure out how AND not fall off a roof.

Nancy Drew and her fiends are plunged into a network of strange events when they visit Misty Lake. The very night they arrive, they meet pretty, red-haired, Cecily Curtis, who seeks Nancy¿s help in solving two mysteries: one concerning Cecily¿s fiancé, Niko Van Dyke, a popular singer who believes that his record company is cheating him of royalty payments¿ the other, involving a family treasure hidden before the start of the Civil War---Cecily¿s only clue being half of a gold locket. Nancy¿s investigation leads her to Pudding Stone Lodge, where the sinister Driscoll family lives. Elusive humming noises, a flashing light in the attic of the lodge, the periodic apparition of an excursion launch which had sunk in Misty Lake years ago, and the fleeting appearances of a frightened girl who strongly resembles Cecily gives Nancy plenty of opportunities to test her sleuthing skillsBraving a series of dangerous situations and discouraging developments, the alert young detective perseveres in her attempts to solve other mysteries and reveal the astounding secrets of Pudding Stone Lodge.
