My February month of reading mysteries is finally ending I am excited for March as I have previously mentioned a little too excited To end an otherwise dreary and depressing month on a positive note I decided to sueeze in one mystery this one a buddy read This was no ordinary buddy read in a group but one with my seven year old daughter She is in first grade and is reading with ease Lately she has enjoyed the newer and probably easy for her Nancy Drew Notebooks Mysteries I decided to both challenge her and expose her to the original series and offered to read the original mysteries with her We happen to own a copy of The Secret of the Old Clock and I checked out a second copy of this classic from the library so we could read Nancy Drew's debut case together Did you know that Nancy Drew has solved over 500 cases in her career That is a lot of mysteries Secret of the Old Clock takes readers back over eighty years ago to where it all began for Nancy in River Heights a fictional town that is supposed to resemble Iowa City Iowa Nancy has finished with high school and still lives in the home of her widower father Carson Drew a prominent River Heights lawyer It is summer vacation and while Nancy is ready to begin the next chapter of her life a mystery happens to fall into her lap Josiah Crowley has passed away and unless a recent will turns up his entire estate will fall into the hands of the greedy Topham family of River Heights Not only are the Tophams well to do but they are also snobby and view Nancy Drew and her kind as a pest Yet word is that Josiah Crowley wrote a second will and Nancy is determined to find it She has been solving mysteries with her father in his office for her entire life and now she is ready to solve a case on her ownAlong the way Nancy meets the Turners the Hoovers the Mathews and Mrs Rowen all of whom stand to benefit if Crowley's second will turns up One notes immediately that these relations of Mr Crowley's deserve the money so than the Crowleys and hope beyond hope that Nancy pieces together enough clues to uncover the missing document Other than the Tophams and a band of robbers the rest of the characters all assisted Nancy in her uest or were otherwise sympathetic Unlike mysteries and thrillers geared toward adult audiences there was little intrigue for me as I knew that in the end Nancy Drew would come out on top The prose was dated yet refreshing to read and I enjoyed turning back the clock to this wholesome book that is still a guessing game for children as to whodunit My daughter enjoyed reading about Nancy as well and she has already checked out her next few cases from the libraryFebruary is over woohoo Where to now March is Women's History Month and I have a diverse lineup plan including two historical mysteries and one buddy read I enjoy reading about women and cultures from around the world so this isn't much of a stretch for me but exciting nonetheless In the meantime my daughter is getting hooked on mysteries herself and wants to continue with the Nancy Drew series I am glad that I used my February month of reading mysteries to expose her to this classic series We both enjoyed the bonding time reading it and I am sure there will be Nancy Drew buddy reads in both of our future4 bright stars
