A Quickie Review

Yet another enjoyable installment in this very long series. Definitely worth the wait. To say more would give away the plot, so, I won't.

Score: 4/5

This book was really good...until it started to drag when i reached page 103! I was disappointed by that because i was really enjoying the story, but i rushed through it when i came to page 103 and wanted it to end already. I also didn't like what happened with Lance, but overall this book was good and it deserves three stars.

I can't say Hal did wrong because Lance is also at fault. One thing in common for those two and the others who are involved in the case is, they all were tempted by money.

I loved this one. All the books in the series should be this good. Bess was so stupid, I was really hoping somebody would do bad things to her, LOL!

This is the first Nancy Drew book I've read with a curse word and also where a gun was actually shot and it injured someone.

Never liked how it took Nancy so long to figure out who was behind everything.
