So I agreed to play the part of Esther Rackham in a film about the heist that gave River Heights its name, and there was all this trouble on the set, and I figured out who was behind it. Case closed, right?


Once the camera starts rolling, a huge fire breaks out on the set, setting back production again. We're running out of time and funds. At least the fire turns

Continuing where the previous book left off, this volume is yet another dose of sleuthing fun.

Not the best Nancy Drew and the fire wasn't on set and really had a bad story line

This book was enjoyable like all Nancy Drew books, but this one was really the only one that had a slight catch to it. You actually must read Lights, Camera...(Nancy Drew: Girl Detective, #5), first in order to read Action! Unfortunately, when I first read this book, I paid no attention to the titles and just read the books, this the probable reason why I didn't understand a thing when I was younger.

This is a new take on Nancy Drew written in the first person. The problem I have with this series is that the facts about Nancy, Ned, George, and Bess are not accurate with the original series of Nancy Drew and Nancy Drew files. The ages, descriptions, etc. are so different that I cannot stand this book series.

Well, this book was almost as weird as the previous one that it continues. Nancy's extreme stage fright is very out of character but yields a nice scene with more psychological depth with Hannah that is unusual for these books. The River Heights history tie in for both books is interesting.
Okay, not one of the best Nancy Drew books at all! She didn't do much investigating in this one. Almost the whole book was kinda boring! There was no fire on set even! Is that Nancy Drew book a joke or what?! If u want to read a good mystery, I don't recommend this one.

this was i think the most disapointing nancy drew book, the only good part is when ( spoiler alert ) harald fell down the whole.

Very very easy to read. More like a filler in the space between one book and another when you don't want your brain to have too much to think about. Easily finished in a few hours.
