Nancy, Bess, and George are spending the weekend away and Nancy plans to spend most of her time with her nose in a book. But when she goes to get a new book, the trio discover that the local bookstore is on fire! The girls find themselves in the middle of another mystery---but it seems as though all of the mysteries in author Lacey O'Brien's books are coming to life . . . will Nancy and her friends figure out whodunit before the culprit strikes again?
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.
Carolyn Keene is the author of the ever-popular Nancy Drew books.
