Overall, only a fair example of girl sleuthing. Highlights, though, include little details about the oyster industry, the inclusion of the wild ponies of Assateague, and the lovely illustrations.
I loved this series of books that I read back in junior high. They are from the same syndicate that wrote the Nancy Drew books and the Hardy Boys, but I much preferred the Dana Girls.
Wrapped up very predictably but had some charming tidbits about the setting.
