While on a vacation with her friend Helen, Nancy almost loses her life when their boat tips over and they are far from shore. Lucky for them another visitor named Laura hears them and rows out to save them. The girls establish a fast friendship and Laura tells her Nancy and Helen about her parent's death and her new guardians. While talking to her new friend, Nancy discovers her father is out of town and her housekeeper has hurt herself and she knows she must go home to help.
Once home, Nancy speaks to her father when he asks her help on an embezzlement case and she heads out to talk to some of the main suspects. When Nancy gets home she has a surprise visitor, Laura, who tells a fantastical story of having been locked in her room and having to escape in order to get to Nancy's. Nancy heads back to help figure out what is going on with Laura's guardians and may very well be able to answer her father's questions at the same time.
As usual, Laura Linney does a beautiful job of narrating Nancy Drew's mishaps and drawing the listener into the story. She makes sure that the reader truly enjoys the story and wants to continue listening.
Nancy Drew will forever be some of my favorite reads. They are so simple and comforting and bring back wonderful memories of my elementary school library visits.
