This is my first Nancy Drew book ever. I started reading a Hardy Boys book once upon a time, and found it utterly boring. I lumped Nancy Drew in the same category and never even considered picking one up. My friends were shocked that I hadn't read any Nancy Drew and told me I had to. One even loaned the book to me.

I found it rather entertaining and would definitely consider reading another someday, though I don't plan to run out and buy the set. I enjoy the Hannah Swenson mysteries by Joanne Flu

I always love a good mystery! Nancy Drew books are great if you love mysteries, but also want a quick read. This book didn't take me a long time to read, but it was a bit confusing at times (but, all mysteries confuse me a little bit). This book specifically was about Nancy visiting a friend who is in college, and she works undercover to find out if a fellow student of her friend was murdered, or if it was just a tragic accident. This book has a lot of characters that might describe some friends ...more
I love books about sororities and college campuses set in the 1940's-1980's, so this was right up my alley.

I'm reading back-to-back Nancy Drew files, so it's a little hard dealing with the stupidity of the characters in high doses. Nancy Drew is an absolute dummy. She gives everything away. She nearly ruins every case with her big mouth.
