This was just annoying. Everyone's lying. Blah blah blah. These paperback Minstrels aren't that good and this one is pretty average.

3 1/2 stars! I liked it a lot! On the verge of really liking it, but not quite.

It's no secret that my favorite Nancy Drew mysteries are the original yellow cover mysteries and even among those you'll find some I like better than others. I keep trying the newer mysteries and the different incarnations to see if anything catches me as much as the originals.

This one started out really good. Perhaps the setting is what resonated most; it is most definitely set at Hershey Park. Yes, the name and loca

This one is really meant for a much younger reader, but I read it as a tribute to the many previously read ND books of my past. When I was a young teenager I could read 2 or more of these a day- now I wonder why- but ND always solves her cases, developes the skill set necessary to follow through the investigation- driving, riding a horse, driving a boat, flying a plane, etc. I now find her a bit too non real for me- but in the past she was my hero.

A nice quick read. The villain was not totally obvious from the start, although the way the reveal happened was a little cheesy and Joker-esque. Altogether it was a fun romp through a Hershey Park knockoff (and has remained one of my favorite Nancy books for years).

Nancy's friend Bess buys a chocolate bar, and when she opens the wrapper, she wins 1,000,000 dollars prize. However, the store person says someone already wins, Bess’s wrapper is fake. Of course, at the end, Nancy solves it. I think everyone will like this book, it was cool while I was reading it. As in real life, I always collect something to see if I can win the prize, but still I don’t win anything. I recommend this book to who likes mystery.

I like mystery novel. Mystery can always captured reader's attention. There's like a hook in that book and you want to find out the truth. This book fits like this. First there's this situation happening, then the main character Nancy Drew started to hunt for the truth.
