What would happen if Nancy Drew met James Bond? Find out in this humorous, PG-Rated tale written for nostalgic women baby-boomers who grew up loving Nancy Drew mysteries. Nancy Keene, the teenage sleuth in this mystery, goes to London and stays in the same hotel as Daniel Craig (AKA James Bond) when his BAFTA award is stolen from his room. When Nancy is not on a Jane Austen pilgrimage or visiting Buckingham Palace, she channels Agatha Christie, Sherlock Holmes, and Rumpole of the Bailey to help her solve the mystery of the stolen mask.
Here's what reviewers are saying about this book:
"I loved it! This is a very clever parody of Nancy Drew set in the current times. Nancy Keene, her father Drew Keene, and her friend Beth travel to London where they not only meet Daniel Craig (James Bond) but also solve his mystery...I love Nancy Drew and I love England. The two together is a winner."
"Great story line for readers who loved Nancy Drew as a young person. It moves quickly and is a fun light read!"

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.
