Deadly Intent by Carolyn Keene

This book was part of the Nancy Drew Files (Case 2) which were a series that I read continuously when I was younger. I've been wanting to reread these books as they helped to spark my love for a good mystery! The Heart of a Child reading challenge is giving me a chance to do this...the only problem being that I couldn't find the 1st book in this series and I HATE reading series out of order. I am going to try and find the first one but for now I have to settle for starting at number 2.
The FUN part of rereading is that because it has been SO long-well, it feels like I'm reading them for the 1st time (even though that isn't the case). This was a FUN little mystery for, not too deep, and familiar characters that you can't help but love. In this case Nancy is trying to find a missing guitarist. Her list of suspects EVEN includes her good friend Bess' new boyfriend. Plus, Ned joins up with Nancy to help solve the case! This MOST DEFINITELY brought me back to my childhood (in a good way)...but don't read these expecting too much out of them..they are on the light side! LOL! But I had fun reading this which is all that matters!
Challenges: Heart of a Child Challenge, A-Z Challenge ("D" Title)
My Rating: 4 out of 5 (for sheer entertainment value!)


  1. I have a question. Are these the same books (just republished) from when we were young or are these new stories?

    My daughter is into these BIG time and would love to read more. (She's gone through all of them.)

  2. Hmmm...These are older I believe but they are a different series than the original series (I read these way back when)


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate each and every one of them :)
