Nancy and her friends need more than book smarts to get to the bottom of a literary mystery in this fourth book of the Nancy Drew Diaries, a new take on the classic series.

A rash of crimes in a neighboring town—a blazing fire at a bookstore, a boat that sinks in the harbor, and a valuable dog’s dognapping—are eerily similar to the plots from famous mystery writer Lacey O’Brien’s popular books. So who’s behind the crimes? Could it be Lacey looking for publicity? One of Lacey’s superfans? Or maybe it’s Paige Samuels, owner of the bookstore that burned. Nancy, Bess, and George will have to read between the lines as they dig deep into a dangerous mystery.

    Nancy Drew and her friend Bess and George go on a vacation, not expecting a mystery. But when they start their vacation mysterious things are starting to happen. All the crimes seem to be copy cats from the town's famous mystery writer. Read the book to find out if Nancy Drew can solve the mystery!

      All Nancy, Bess, and George wanted to do was relax on vacation. But as it turns out, another mystery finds its way to Nancy when a building sets on fire. The evidence shows it to be an accident, but Nancy is convinced that it was arson. The question is, who did it, and why?

        This book is pretty good, but I am slightly disappointed with not too much of a deep plot.
