Rating: 1-5: 4
What did you like about the book? Nancy Drew, along with her best friends Bess and George, travel to Charleston to attend the wedding of one of Bess’ cousins. Their stay at the Grey Fox Inn engages them in solving the mystery of why a Civil War ghost is haunting the inn as well as figuring out who is using increasingly harmful pranks to disrupt the wedding they are attending. Though the classic sleuthing stories have been modernized with references to technology such as smartphones and the internet, the essence remains true to the original. This is the thirteenth book in the revamped series, but readers can easily jump in without having read the previous ones.
Anything you didn’t like about it? No.
To whom would you recommend this book? Recommend to fourth to sixth grade fans of mysteries.
Who should buy this book? Upper elementary libraries, middle school libraries and public libraries.
Where would you shelve it? Shelve with Mysteries
Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? Not necessary, but it’s good to be aware of the series’ existence.
