Perfect Mystery for young and old!

Very old friend remains a Delight !
It is one of the first in the famous old series, and yet pretty complex. Not all fluff. Stuff to get into. The "very old friend" - ness of it, is what brings me back.
I'd run to the library as a girl to get the next book in the series. I had to sit with myself, to work out a reading schedule that prevented me from obsessing on Nancy Drew books.
I read every one available at the time.
Then in highschool I re-read the rewritten series, updated it to get rid of stereotypes and racist things. My best friend owned the entire collection, so it was a bit easier. My friends and I made 4 and we'd go on "adventures" inspired by Nancy Drew, in addition to our busy family, school and dating things.
I still want a blue roadster, and I DID manage to wangle from Dad a cool Hillman Minx in two-tone grey.
As a Mother of grown children I could recommend it to them and now to grandchildren, and that's part of the magic.
"Chimneys" I think in Agatha Christie's collection for Miss Marple....because of the long lost knowledge Idea and the hidden passageways...not the best one but it will do here.
Nancy...I think Laura Linney IS Nancy Drew. And I think she took the job for love of Nancy Drew! Hugs to her for it.
I like it when the capture of the "perps" results in benefits to the "good guys" , suffering in some way. At the end, The aunties no longer need to sell the estate, etc...fun...to close with a nice feeling and promise of another mystery to come ...soon.
Please make the Nancy Drew /Hardy Boys purchases easier for us at Audible - compared to the other books they are a bit costly - when most older children and adults read them by the dozen - rarely one at a time.
Please Make them available in a group at a special price, and call me - I'll buy them all.
