A Civil War reenactment should be fun, right? Not in our town! It feels like war fever’s taken over. The tension started to build when we all chose sides. Confederate and Union sympathizers never did mix. And if that wasn’t enough to heat things up, someone started to secretly dig large holes in the battlefield. Pretty odd — and very suspicious. Is someone waging a little war of their own, and trying to cheat? And if so, the bigger question is why?

“When I scored tickets to the grand opening of a new spa in town, I knew I had to take Bess. George came along, too, but she’s been acting so weird. I knew this wouldn’t be her idea of a total blast, but she’s just been no fun at all. It’s unlike her to be such a grouch!

But then, this new spa isn’t turning out to be much fun, either. Deirdre’s here, for starters. And someone’s tampering with the food, and trying to take the “”luxury”” out of this otherwise luxurious place. Something stinks in this spa, and if I can’t sniff it out, my name’s not Nancy…. “

“Bess, George, and I volunteered to go to Costa Rica for some R&R: rest and research. See, Corcovado Ecologica, a popular resort and preserve, isn’t only a beautiful getaway; it’s also a great place to study three species of monkeys. Or so we thought.

When we arrived on the scene, we found the place in a shambles, and the monkeys were few and far between. And if the problem gets worse, the resort’s going to be in trouble. Clearly my friends and I won’t have much time for “”monkeying around”” on this trip — we’ve got a case to crack!”

“My friends and I knew before we got to Arches National Park that it’s full of red cliffs arches, and rock formations — plenty of places for hiking, biking, and getting lost. It’s a good thing there are park rangers and guides to help tourist like us find our way. Or at east that’s what we thought, until of the guilds left for a second to investigate some noise, and never came back.

It seems unlikely that a respected tour guide who knows the area like the back of her hand could just get lose. Something’s fishy. And you can bet I’m going to get to the bottom of this before I find my way home. “

“So I agreed to play the part of Esther Rackham in a film about the heist that gave River Heights its name, and there was all this trouble on the set, and I figured out who was behind it. Case closed, right?

Wrong!

Once the camera starts rolling, a huge fire breaks out on the set, setting back production again. We’re running out of time and funds. At least the fire turns up a key clue about who started it, but I’ll have to continue juggling acting and sleuthing. Because it might be up to me to save this film from going up in flames…. “

But once the cameras start rolling, the trouble begins. Food poisoning. Broken generators. And worse! If I don’t sniff out some suspects soon, this might be my final act. “

I’ve got to find that document, but it’s hard to focus on the land when I’m cruising at ten thousand feet. See, Ned and I are taking flying lessons, him with Colonel Lang, a friend of his family, and me with Frank Beltrano, an instructor at our local airport.

Nancy Drew with a cell phone? George an avid Web surfer? Yes, folks, the girl detective has arrived in the 21st century, just in time for a whole new crop of tween readers. In A Race Against Time, Nancy takes on a particularly mean-spirited crime: in the middle of a River Heights bike race for charity, thieves steal tens of thousands of dollars of pledge money. Torn between her desire to finish her leg of the relay and her commitment to solving crimes, our heroine decides she’ll do the most good on the case. And off she goes–on bike–to investigate leads all up and down the river. Whether she’s trapped in the middle of the night in a shack full of snakes, searching for her missing boyfriend (Ned Nickerson, of course!), or trying to pry information out of the crusty police chief (again), the new and improved Nancy Drew never spins her wheels.
