Still road trip audio book reviewing…The Mystery at Lilac Inn by Carolyn Keene this time. The kiddo has been on a Nancy Drew trip lately. He really likes the reboot series (cough cough), the Nancy Drew Diaries. But occasionally we listen to an original.
Basic Summary (Courtesy of Amazon):
Nancy and her friend Helen visit their friend Emily Willouby at the Lilac Inn, which Emily now owns, to help her plan her wedding. Emily plans on selling inherited diamonds in order to help fix up the Lilac Inn. However, Nancy soon learns that someone has been impersonating her and making expensive purchases under her name. Soon after, Emily’s diamonds are stolen! Can Nancy find the thieves and recover the missing diamonds?
I always remembered Nancy Drew books as being suspenseful but dang. In this one book Nancy get capsized, run off the road into a ditch, her bungalow blown up, and kidnapped. That is one indestructible girl. LOL.
Look it’s a Nancy Drew mystery. There’s good old fashioned morals like politeness and kindness and being helpful because you can be. There’s improbable danger. There’s charming men. And the bad guys always act obviously like bad guys. LOL.
Sometimes that’s a really nice place to visit.
