The Sign of the Twisted Candles, by Carolyn Keene

I was so right, Nancy totally does get chloroformed again! Oh, Nancy, you gotta stop killing those brain cells.

Hanyway, the mystery in this book is a little different from Nancy’s usual… here she starts off with a seemingly simple mystery in hand — is Asa Sidney, a relative of George and Bess, being taken care of in his inn (another inn? seriously??) as he is supposed to be? Of course, he isn’t, and soon some of his other relatives are after him for his oodles of money, and Nancy tries to protect him, but then he dies and suddenly George and Bess are upset that Nancy is protecting all that fortune what was meant to go to their families, and Nancy gets chloroformed, and so does a crappy guard, and it’s all just a mess until Nancy ends up solving a mystery no one even knew existed! Goodness.

I have to admit I didn’t like this one as much as I liked the eight previous… I need more intrigue in my Nancy Drew. 🙂 Let’s hope that Password to Larkspur Lane is more to my style!
