Good for light reading.

I love Nancy Drew. I've never read The Hardy Boys, but I liked them in this. I found it a bit predictable, easy to guess, but there meant for little kids, and I'm not a little kid. I think I little kid would really enjoy this. It was intense, fast-paced, everything I love about Nancy Drew.

Throw in Hardy Boys and Nancy drew together - add a mystery plot and a fling between Frank and Nancy, that's "A Crime for Christmas" for you..... a good read if you have nothing else to do :)
