    A fun quick read I listened to the audio book version cause I wanted something light while I was working and it was perfect It was just light enough that I didn t have to concentrate so hard to pay attention but not so light that I got bored Looking forward to listening toin the series

    My sister got this for me to try out awhile back and it took me way to long to get around to reading it.My main reason for wanting to read this was to see what modern authors had done with my beloved Nancy Drew I can t say I was overly impressed While the writing style was cute, and the descriptions of the island were great, the whole book just fell flat First off, I had no idea how old the characters were While the cover shows a tween girl, Nancy also talks about her boyfriend, so I really My sister got this for me to try out awhile back and it took me way to long to get around to reading it.My main reason for wanting to read this was to see what modern authors had done with my beloved Nancy Drew I can t say I was overly impressed While the writing style was cute, and the descriptions of the island were great, the whole book just fell flat First off, I had no idea how old the characters were While the cover shows a tween girl, Nancy also talks about her boyfriend, so I really wasn t sure how old she was supposed to be in this Second, the characters weren t nearly as polite or nice to each other as they were in the original Overall, it was an okay book, but as a fan of the original, I just found this a bit grating

    I knew the culprit almost from the beginning, so that made the story a bit boring.

    very weak 3 starThis dairies book wasn t as good as the others I was still glad I listened to it since it is part of the series But although the others were a firm 3 not bad but not really good either this one was just mediocre to me I found my thoughts drifting away as I listened and had to remind myself to get back into the story And no you do not need to read the others in the series to read this one I can be a stand alone book if need be.

    Yes I can guess who the culprit yet again Second time in a row I like this book The setting of Nantucket really give it a classic vibe, reminds me of a movie I ve watched once long ago The mystery isn t too intricate, but lots of possible suspects is presented Another great Nancy Drew adventure.
