Do you like Nancy Drew? Do you like New Orleans? If so, you will enjoy this humorous and PG-rated story that especially targets women baby boomers who grew up reading and loving the Nancy Drew series. The teenage sleuth in this story goes on vacation with her father and friends to the French Quarter. What starts out as a sight-seeing trip changes into a murder/mystery when a docent at Oak Alley Plantation is murdered. Part travelogue, part ghost story, this book mixes voodoo, ghosts, and bayous into a spicy gumbo of a whodunit.
Here's what reviewers are saying about this book:
“She follows the clues and the mystery is solved in a satisfying way. Having recently visited New Orleans, I was intrigued by the description of the city, especially the French Quarter."
“I found the mystery interesting but also enjoyed reading of the sites in New Orleans.”

These books are funny PG-rated stories inspired by the adventures of the famous teenage sleuth Nancy Drew. She was my childhood hero and I was thrilled whenever I got a Nancy Drew Mystery for my Christmas or birthday present. For readers who don't know who Nancy Drew is, here's a brief description: the original Nancy Drew stories first appeared in 1930. They starred a pretty blonde teenager who led a charmed life: she was popular, knew all sorts of obscure facts, had a very kind and permissive father, a snazzy blue roadster, and plenty of unsupervised time to go off searching for clues in each of her "cases". Many famous women such as Hillary Clinton, Former First Lady Laura Bush, and Supreme Court Justices Sandra Day O'Connor and Sonia Sotomayor cite her as formative influences.
My Nancy Keene mysteries take place in some of my favorite travel destinations, so they are travelogues in addition to being cozy mysteries. All of the books in the series can be enjoyed as standalone stories.
