Standard fare for this series...which isn't a bad thing.

The first things that probably come to mind when you think of "The Nancy Drew files" are: corny, detectives, and the 1980's. "Tall Dark and Handsome Case #66" is just one of many books that Carolyn Keene has written. She has many series of these mystery books written about and for teens. This particular case is about a missing college student named Ava Woods who went missing after going on a mysterious blind date. Nancy and her detective partner/bff were called to solve the mystery and find out ...more

This entry into the series had a decent mystery, but I felt it moved too slow.

I didn't understand why Nancy wanted to get a separate dorm room from Bess. Supposedly she didn't want anyone to be able to connect that they were working the case together. It probably would have been a good idea if Bess didn't spend most of her time in Nancy's dorm room, or right out in public talking to Nancy every time you turned around. Geez!

This one was... different. Right from the beginning, it wasn't like typical Nancy Drew stories. Nancy and Bess are on their way to college to investigate the disappearance of the daughter of some friends of her father, and while they're supposed to be posing as students and working undercover, Nancy uses her real name right off the bat. She and Bess get different dorms so people won't associate the two of them, but they meet up and talk in public all over campus, including the hall, the lounge, ...more

I guess I've always loved to read mystery and other books which contain an element of intrigue. I vaguely remember starting off with Famous Five then went onto Nancy Drew and then Agatha Christie.

So when I stumbled upon Nancy Drew and an Agatha Christie at the library book sale I picked them up and read them back to back.

I'm not going to review this because I read it more out of a feeling of nostalgia than anything else :)

Recommends it for: someone looking for an easy read while waiting at the airport/flying a short distance
Shelves: read-in-2011
ended up being a bit more predictable than the usual Case File mystery
Annika
Definitely my favorite ND FILES case :D

Content: PG - Romantic themes/violence
