For nostalgic reasons I went back to read a Nancy Drew book. When I was a kid, I read a lot of Nancy Drew. I was prepared, when picking up a copy today, that my adult self wouldn't find it as good as my kid self did and that that memory of my childhood would be changed. I was pleasantly surprised, however, to discover that Nancy has staying power. She drew me in and kept me reading, trying to figure out the mystery. Sure there were a lot of convenient coincidences and the bad guys are relatively tame, but it was exciting and fun. So here's to Nancy and all those girls out there who grew up reading her. You, go girls! ( )

Book description
Nancy Drew and her friends are plunged into a network of strange events when they visit Misty Lake. The very night they arrive, they meet pretty, red-haired Cecily Curtis, who seeks Nancy's help in solving two mysteries: one concerning Cecily's fiancé, Niko Van Dyke, a popular singer who believes that his record company is cheating him of royalty payments; the other, involving a family treasure hidden before the start of the Civil War - Cecily's only clue being half of a gold locket. 
Nancy's investigations lead her to Pudding Stone Lodge, where the sinister Driscoll family lives. Elusive humming noises, a flashing light in the attic of the lodge, the periodic apparition of an excursion launch which had sunk in Misty Lake years ago, and the fleeting appearances of a frightened girl who strongly resembles Cecily give Nancy plenty of opportunity to test her sleuthing skills. 
Braving a series of dangerous situations and discouraging developments, the alert young detective perseveres in her attempts to solve both mysteries and reveal the astounding secrets of Pudding Stone Lodge.
