Critic Reviews

"Laura Linney brings the young sleuth and her gal pals to life throughout their adventure....Linney provides a seamless narration. With just the right dramatic flair, the self-deprecating Nancy Drew keenly solves the mystery of a romantic legend involving an outlaw and a ranch-owner's daughter." (AudioFile)

Long Live Nancy; A Trip Back in Time

Nancy Drew was an important part of my childhood. These books helped me to love reading, made me a mystery fan, and (yes!) fostered my feminism, too. For this, I am grateful to all the people who were Carolyn Keene.

Revisiting Nancy is a mixed-bag experience. Of course, the books are not spectacularly well-written. And, in modern terms, our heroine is pretty traditional. The stories are tame.

BUT, Laura Linney reads with a respect for the original excitement many of us experienced when reading Nancy Drew. I love the sound effects and the drama in her voice. It's like being a twelve-year-old again.

If you are in the mood for uncritical nostalgia, go ahead and try "The Secret of Shadow Ranch". Be sure you only select the Drew mysteries that are performed by Laura Linney. Curl up and enjoy a trip back in time!

Daughter loves it

I purchased this for my daughter, but ended up hearing it several times in pieces :) I can't say enough about Laura Linney's narration--she is wonderful!
