Nancy Drew is the girl detective of Riverside. When she almost hits a young girl, she meets the family members of Josiah Crowley, a wealthy older man who has recently passed away. She learns that he had promised multiple friends and family that he would leave them money in his will but instead it is discovered that he has left all of his money to the Tophams - a community family who looks down on other members of society. There are rumors that Josiah wrote a new will that excludes the Tophams and takes care of those he promised care to. Nancy takes on the mystery of finding the new will and helping her new friends.

I read these Nancy Drew novels when I was younger and they helped develop my love of reading. The narrator does a wonderful job of bringing Nancy's adventures to life. Another big plus was the great mysterious cheesy music that plays at the height of mystery and danger. All in all, I loved going back and re-reading these mysteries and the sense of nostalgia was perfect.
