Nancy sets out to investigate the mysterious woman, but soon is faced with numerous other mysteries, including a vacation scam perpetrated by a woman who bears a resemblance to Nancy; the search for an old carriage, sealed in a box and sunk in the bay many years ago; and a strange green-glowing wizard that lives on a nearby mountain.
This is a beautiful gift book.
I'm a collector of Nancy Drew mysteries and this is one of my favorites. The idea of the grieving royal family burying their dead child's favorite toys in a lake is a sad and intriguing plot and the circumstances under which Nancy solves the case make for a great read. I love the original ND series, but even I think that some of them are better than others, and this is one of the better ones.
