Short Review: I never read Nancy Drew as a young girl, and when i saw the audio books on my library app, i grabbed book 1 and dived in. I like Nancy, she's a bit too strong willed and common sense seems to escape her at times, but i see where she is coming from and can understand why she wants to solve these things. The hidden will had me interested, i felt bad for the person who didn't get money in the first will. Nancy's dad did rub me a bit wrong when he made a joke about how he would only take money from them if they got results, which is fine, but the way it was toned made it sound kinda evil. Overall, a good first book, and i can see why others think it's a great read for young girls!
