Carolyn Keene never fails to deliver an excellent mystery novel in her series of Nancy Drew, super sleuth. I really like how all of her novels follow the same pattern, one would think this could be boring, however, it is satisfying to the reader to know or be able to guess at the events of the

Nancy Drew remains, as always, a terrific protagonist. Her friends, Bess and George, are terrific "sidekicks" with well-developed personalities. I never fail to enjoy these novels, keep producing them!

Wow, almost 60 years have passed since I read Nancy Drew, so I spent a day revisiting Nancy and her gang of ghost busters. The Invisible Intruder contains five cases that Nancy and her friends must research and aid the police and assist the landowners in stopping ghost rumors. I thought that this

would be a simple reading, but seashells entered into the various jaunts and a thorough description of seashell collecting transpired. I had forgotten the forceful nature of Nancy and her bossy attitude. She runs amok so many times and throws caution to the wind. Luckily for Nancy that her group of friends rescue her from serious consequences. Again, a very enjoyable read that does not contain killing and graphic violence.
