In an earlier book, The Secret of Shady Glen, Nancy solved a mystery for a young black woman whose ancestors were slaves who escaped to freedom via the Underground Railroad. In The Mystery at Magnolia Mansion, Nancy and Bess travel to South Carolina to help solve a mystery for a historical romance novelist who is a proud descendant of a Civil War colonel.

I read Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys throughout my school and college days.

Good book. It was suspenseful and intriguing, but I found the explanations kinda far fetched, and some things weren't explained. Also, whenever Nancy and Bess talk to the suspects, Bess keeps giving away their undercover investigation with her big fat mouth! Oh Bess! Lol. So all in all this is a great book to read to pass the time with and it deserves 3 stars.

Another clever mystery and fun setting, this time with an favorite author of Bess', though hostile suspects seem to have become mandatory (and are getting old). George must be busy--she wasn't around to help with this one.

Author Amelia Beaufort calls Nancy and Bess to her Mansion for help. Someone is terrorizing her in her own home. It's up to Nancy to find out why. Before the Author falls even more behind on her new book.

So we meet again, Nancy Drew. Been awhile.
