The Mystery of the 99 Steps (Nancy Drew Mystery #43)

I haven’t read a Nancy Drew novel since I was a little girl. The only book I remember was the one Mom had on her bookshelf, The Hidden Staircase, though I no longer remember the story. When I saw this at a local library book sale, I couldn’t resist.

Nancy is asked by her friend, Mrs. Blair, asks Nancy to help her understand a dream she’s been having about her childhood and a staircase with 99 steps. Mrs. Blair grew up in France, and since Nancy’s father is in Paris on a case of his own, Nancy and her friends, George and Bess, join him for their own French adventure.

It was a fun read. I enjoyed the mystery, and solved it about the same time as Nancy did. Keene has an easy style and keeps just enough of the mystery up her sleeve to keep me interested. I’ll certainly be reading more — maybe I can find that copy of The Hidden Staircase at Mom’s house on my next visit.
