Book Review || The Mystery at the Lilac Inn (Nancy Drew #4) by Carolyn Keene

Title: The Mystery at the Lilac Inn (Nancy Drew #4)
Author: Carolyn Keene
Pages: 180

Synopsis from Goodreads
Nancy and Helen visit a charming old inn, recently purchased by friends. Soon after her arrival at Lilac Inn, Nancy discovers someone is impersonating her! The young detective’s enemy alters her appearance to resemble Nancy and uses stolen identification! When Emily Willoughby's diamonds are stolen, Nancy is determined to find Emily's inheritance. A mysterious ghostly figure roaming Lilac Inn's grounds, a strange message with the phrase “blue pipes,” and other unexplained incidents lead credence to the belief that the inn is actually jinxed!

My Thoughts:
Nancy Drew went through a lot in this book, and it's super fast paced compared to the previous ones. First, she gets ran off the road by a stolen car, she gets shot at while skin-diving with a spear-gun, a cabin she was residing in for the time being was blown up by a time-bomb, rocks are being thrown at her through her car window, and to top it all off, someone is going around impersonating her! I could not be Nancy Drew for the life of me. It seems to be one thing after another and she doesn't get a break!

A thing I loved the most out of this book was the vivid imagery of the lilac that surround the inn where Nancy is staying at. I could almost smell them. I also love the fact that this book includes some lesser-known facts on the lilac flower. These books are very educational on a vast amount of subjects.
