The Secret of the Old Clock (book review)

This book is for the Full Circle Challenge.

The Secret of the Old Clock, by Carolyn Keene, is a book in the Nancy Drew series. In it, eighteen-year-old Nancy finds herself solving her first case. It involves a lost will written by a long dead man, Josiah Crowley, and a mysterious gray moving van full of stolen furniture. After Nancy meets some of Crowley's relatives and friends, she becomes more determined than ever to uncover the hidden will. But the key to solving both mysteries may lie in an old clock that no one has touched in a long, long time.

I liked this book, although it wasn't one of my favorite Nancy Drew stories. I enjoy the series, though. They're nice when I just want to read something quick and light.
