Staff Pick: Nancy Drew Mysteries The Hidden Staircase

Staff Pick: Nancy Drew Mysteries The Hidden Staircase

The Hidden Staircase

Strange things happen when Nancy investigates threats against her father and an old house said to be haunted.

In the second Nancy Drew Mystery Stories series, Nancy helps her friend Helen Corning’s relatives find out what’s behind a ghost seemingly haunting their old mansion, Twin Elms. On the day she hears about the new mystery, a man comes to the Drew home and warns Nancy that she must stay near her father, lawyer Carson Drew, who is in danger. This starts a search for Willie Wharton; a missing land owner who is connected to Mr. Drew’s most recent case. Nancy must solve the mysterious thefts and incidences at Twin Elms while looking for her father who has disappeared during his search to find Wharton.

The Nancy Drew mysteries are a long time favorite of mine because Nancy is worldly, intelligent, and brave-all things I hoped to be as I got older. The book is detailed and moves quickly, making it an exciting title for readers who look for action. While the book may have some dated terms, Nancy is still a great role model during any age. When her father disappears, Nancy is more motivated than ever to solve the mystery at Twin Oaks and find him. This is a classic story for anyone interested in an adventurous mystery.

“The book all the awncers is about a magic pencil that gives her all the awncers”.
