Emily plans on selling inherited diamonds in order to help fix up the Lilac Inn. However, Nancy soon learns that someone has been impersonating her and making expensive purchases under her name. Soon after, Emily's diamonds are stolen! Can Nancy find the thieves and recover the missing diamonds?
I’ve been slowly going back through one of my favorite series and these books are definitely as fun as I remember as a kid. I cannot recommend the audiobooks enough because the narrator is amazing and they add some fun sound effects in if you are listening with kids.
With some reoccurring characters and some danger, it makes for a quick and easy read. The mystery itself is fun to read about and Nancy makes a great teen detective.
Highly recommend this series if you haven’t read it. They are definitely classics in the Children’s mystery section!
