The Stolen Show: 01/02/23
The Stolen Show by Carolyn Keene (2019) is the nineteenth book in the Nancy Drew Diaries series. Nancy, Bess, and George are off to Quebec City to help a friend at a dog show. When they get there, they're in the middle of a sabotage plot and a possible jewel smuggling ring.
This mystery, more than many in this series has a very strong sense of place. It's set in actual buildings and locations that can be looked up. It's also set during a blizzard, adding an extra level of drama to the mystery.
This particular volume happens to correspond with the first season of the CW's Nancy Drew series. The interactions between Nancy and her friends reminds me quite a bit of how they are portrayed in the show. Here, though, they are still younger and there are no supernatural threats here.
The twentieth book is Hidden Pictures (2020).
