I believe The Secret of Shadow Ranch by Carolyn Keene was the best Nancy Drew book in the series yet (I’ve read #1-5)!
Since this is a children’s book, so I’ll grade the book as such. No spoilers included.
I thought that the setting was so dramatically different than the other locations that I’m used to that it added a new appeal to me. This book was full of hidden clues and tasks Nancy wouldn’t typically find or participate in back in River Heights. There were lots more characters in this book, too, which I feel were fleshed out more than usual. I actually couldn’t figure out who was the bad guy for the longest time. It was cleaver.
I also loved all the animals included. I can’t remember: were there animals in any of the other ones? Good, quick read to finish off the year.
I’m giving The Secret of Shadow Ranch by Carolyn Keene a 4/5 stars. My rating system is below:
- My rating system stands: 5/5 is a knock out of the park; this book deserves to be read by everyone. 4/5 is, “I really liked it,” but it did have a couple of kinks. 3/5 is, “I believe there are a lot of people who would enjoy this book, but for one reason or another, it didn’t sit well with me.” 2/5 is, “I really didn’t enjoy it and I’m not going to recommend it.” 1/5 is, “no one read this – throw it in a lake.”
