Nancy becomes involved in a maze of mystery when she accepts an invitation from Mrs. Chantrey, a client of Mr. Drew, to vacation at her cottage in a picturesque seaside town. Carson Drew has promised to join his daughter, but fails to arrive. The alarming disappearance of Mr. Drew and the odd circumstances surrounding his rescue are only the start of a series of highly dangerous adventures for Nancy and her friends Bess and George.

My daughter's reading level has improved immeasurably since beginning these Nancy Drew books & her love of reading has escalated as every chapter ends with a minor cliffhanger. She used to complain about her school mandated 20 daily minutes of reading, but now wants to sit down together and solve these mysteries. Thank you, Carolyn Keene!
You don't have to read them in order. But I am so very grateful that they are all available. From 1 to who knows??? (I don't. I'm only on 19 now. I'll be ordering 20 - 25 once I get done here!!!)
The Kindle Version is as good as the Hardcopy. They've included the Drawings AND the Copyright Page. The Table of Contents works ... not that I ever give it a chance to do so since I read from page 1 to the end. Not at one sitting, although you could since they aren't humongous!!!
Bottom line: If you enjoy Mysteries and don't need a lot of blatant sex & violence or foul language to enjoy a book, then Nancy Drew will give you at least an hour or two of pleasure!!! There's fast action and not a lot of boring "gotta add words just to make the book bigger".
