Is it hard to find? ???

I have read Danger Overseas and Terror on tour. I am thinking about getting Secret of the Nile. Was that a good book??? ???

Yeah, it is a good book, plus Frank Hardy and Nancy Drew and Joe Hardy and Bess Marvin tie the knot with Frank and Nancy becoming Mr & Mrs. Frank Hardy and Joe and Bess Mr. & Mrs. Joe Hardy.

It sounds like a great book! Is it expensive or hard to find or anything? Because the cheapest one I saw was 14 dollars. :D

Have you notice that you are talking about the same subject on two different topics? ??? ???

The Last Resort was really good. I'm surprised because I thought I wouldn't like it.

There's a good amount of "normal" stuff (which I like), a lot of Nancy/Frank, and great comedy. Ned also shows up, and I (surprisingly) like how he helps with the case.

The only thing that's a little weird was how Bess was portrayed. It's consistent from how she is in the other books in this universe, but it seemed to be a bit much sometimes.

I'm reading chronologically, with the exception of New Year's Evil, Secrets of the Nile, and the last two in the series which I've already read.

My favs so far (chronologically):

A Crime for Christmas
The Last Resort
Secrets of the Nile


Double Crossing and New Year's Evil are okay, too.

Double Crossings
Out of Control
At All Costs

It seems as if Ive read both The Paris Connection and The Last Resort but thats just becuase the covers look so familiar. Ive read the majority of the Casefiles/SuperMysteries as they were originally published so my memory is a bit fuzzy. Even so Ive been on a quest to collect the entire Casefiles/Files/SuperMysteries '88...and then busy myself with collecting the Originals for both ND and HB.

forgot to mention that Ive read A Crime for Christmas. I recall someone biting into a piece of chocolate covered plastique. Thats the only thing I remember from the book so Im going to have to hunt it down and reread it.

Reading Secrets of the Nile right now. And the characters in the book, Frank and Nancy were supposed to be Mr. and Mrs. Cole Addison and Joe and Bess: Mr. and Mrs. Cooper Addison. They went through airport security as their cover identities, but they don't put on the fake wedding rings until they are on the plane. And also at that time they are looking at the bios of who they are supposed to be...

I feel the same way that Joe does about tours, I'd rather look around myself and not listen to boring speeches.
Joe Hardy said "Iola is alive, I can feel it. I couldn't feel this strongly about someone who was dead."

"Then I won't tell you to give up hope," Frank said softly. 8)

Whoa! Cool! I'm reading Secrets of the Nile right now too! I'm at Chapter 3 and it's been great (as always) so far. :)
