Loved it even though it is meant for a younger reader. It made driving to work bearable. I love the woman reading the book from first to last chapter. Dislike when a different person reads a new chapter. The switching back and forth kills me... So glad this book is just one person reading it throughout. She has a pleasant voice. Unsure where reader is from, but the setting of the story is in NJ i think, and the reader says words like "dog" with an exact NJ accent! How fun!

I felt like a teenager again deeply enthralled in Nancy Drew! The narrators were fun, and just like any good book, stated up way to late to see what happened next!
