The Secret of the Old Clock by Carolyn Keene
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
What I liked: A fun start on a trip down memory lane. The Nancy Drew series promises to be quick reads without a dull moment.
What I didn't like: Some of the transitional writing between scenes was a little rough.
Final thoughts: Keeping in mind that these books were written in the 1930's, it was entertaining to read the conversational bits and the lack of technology. It was also nice to read a book that was simply "good".
Pub. Date: May 1930
Series: Nancy Drew Book 1
Synopsis: Nancy Drew, a teenage amateur sleuth, and her lawyer father take on the case of missing will. As Nancy befriends Josiah Crowley's friends and family, she learns of his strange behavior and promises to leave them money. In his last will and testament, however, he leaves his vast estate and fortune to the Tophams, a snooty family only concerned with their social standing in the community. Nancy follows a hunch that Josiah wrote another will before he died that divided his estate among those he promised.
