This is my review for the whole series:

I agree with SPPL_Kristen. Nancy Drew is a fun, entertaining series that will keep you guessing as to who the criminal is and why. Although the books got a little repetitive after a while, I still enjoyed each excellent mystery following the adventures of Nancy and her friends. Some were better than others, and most were pretty good. There were only a few that I disliked (like #53: The Sky Phantom).

They're definitely formulaic and the writing gets really wonky in places, but these books are fun and inspiring and I've got a huge soft spot for them and the entertainment they gave 12 year old me.

I love these original Nancy Drews. There so fun and I can't wait to read the next one.

They are making a lot of updated Nancy Drew books right now, but this line of novels has enchanting vintage charm so much better than modern tales.

Nancy Drew's first detective story!
Nancy, in trying to help a poor girl living with her aunts, gets a lot more than she bargained for. She is tasked with finding the will of a man who recently passed away. And if she fails, all off the mans money will go to an already well-off family, with two rude sisters, who already count on getting the money. She makes some very good friends, does a little sleuthing, and has a blast.
