This is #169 in the Nancy Drew series of books. The story revolves around events around Christmas time at a department store where Bess is working. Some electronics have been stolen along with gowns. The topic of shrinkage is then brought up.

Shelves: mystery, young-adult
This is one of the series books meant for younger readers. I enjoyed it Nancy Drew is a good role model because she does not need a guy around to be brave and resourceful. Reading it took me back to the lazy days of my childhood where I would lay out under the tree and read. Our home in Hialeah did not have AC so it was cooler outside. It was a well done mystery with all the clues laid out to follow. Some adult mystery writers could learn a thing or two from reading Nancy Drew mysteries.

This is an exciting thriller about thefts that are big and small. I found it really fun and a bit creepy especially as Nancy was on several stakeouts. This book puts you on edge.
