I always type "My Own Bookshelf" with such pride. This one has been sitting there for awhile, just like my other Nancy Drews.

This mystery was incredibly complicated. So much was going on, and there were so many suspects. She solved the mystery in the end, of course. Someone was impersonating her and there was a thief at the inn. Everything comes together in an action-packed ending. It's a good one!

One another note, I have what I like to call a Nancy Drew complex. I have ALWAYS wanted to solve a mystery. I have yet to actually accomplish this. There was a thief in my apartment building! S/he was stealing people's packages. They probably got one of my books. How dare s/he?!?! I immediately wanted to investigate. Sadly, I am now a grown-up and know better. This is one mystery that I will never solve, but I still dream of the day when I will stumble upon something that I can actually solve. Anyone else have this complex, maybe with a different character? Please tell me that I am not alone.
