I decided that I would read another Nancy Drew book after Matt and I saw the movie Nancy Drew.
The book was similar to movie, but of course the book is always better. LOL!
Well Nancy did it again and solved a mystery this time mostly on her own with her friend Helen. This time though it was a bit of a risk since her father was kidnapped. But Nancy's cool head she plowed on through.
She met two nice older ladies and eventually found that Hidden Staircase where the supposedly ghost was scaring these ladies. And yes she finds her father too.
At the end though there was nothing of a keepsake to take. The thing she took with her was to know that her father was save and The Turnbull ladies got what was twisting them around was straightened out.
I give The Hidden Staircase

I really enjoyed this book. It has touched on something that I actually feel myself. My best friend is also my husband, Brian just like Holly had Gerry.
I liked the way the author set up Holly to be strong and to get on with her life. The letters just opened each month were very clever.And to always remember to write that the character has friends that she can count on. That seems to be important in literature.
I believe in PS, I Love You. Like Holly said @ Denise& Tom's wedding, "Finding someone you love and who loves you back is a wonderful feeling. But finding a true soulmate is an even better feeling. A soulmate who is someone that understands like no other, loves you like no other. Will be there for you forever, no matter what".
I found that person myself and feel very blessed. I give Ps, I Love You
Almost gave it a 4 after reading how forceful Daniel @ the end of the story was. Unless you been through it no one knows how much time a person needs to grieve. But the story turned out better. Holly took day after day. And had many memories that she shared with her husband Gerry.
I'm keeping this book in my permanent collection. It will remind me of the many memories I have that I treasure of my own husband & children.
