The Hidden Staircase Nancy Drew Book by Carolyn Keene Starts out with Nancy helping her dad Carson with railroad business. He has to find a man that signed off on the original railroad property. He has to leave town to do that as he can't locate the man locally. She gets a visit from the owners of the mansion and it's twin house asking her to help them solve the mystery of the ghost in their house. Strange things have been happening and they want to know what to do about them. This book takes many turns, a kidnapping and secret passage ways among the two houses. Loved the exploring and how she accumulated the clues to actually solve both mysteries.

The second I began this book, I fell in love. I am always on the lookout for good mysteries that aren't creepy or scary, and Nancy Drew series is the perfect choice for me. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a mystery that will keep you turning the pages.

I found this to be a great Nancy Drew book. It kept my attention. I have been reading these since I was 7 years and my dad would bring them home to me and my sister from business trips. I have learned a lot about different parts of the country from reading these.
