What did you like about the book? Nancy Drew is off to enjoy a ski vacation before the holidays, but winter break does not bring a break from mysteries to solve.  The resort is plagued by mysterious break-ins, sabotage attempts in the restaurant, a controversial pipeline project connected to one of the resort owners and a tale of hidden gold.  When Nancy takes a fall and breaks her leg on the first day, she must do her sleuthing from a wheelchair.  Luckily she comes across two other teen detectives, The Hardy Boys.  Nancy teams up with Joe when Frank is banned from the resort and soon they get to the bottom of all the mysteries.  Lots of winter fun and a multitude of  mysteries!
