Fallen monarchs and priceless treasure, here we come!

The Story.

When Nancy gave aid to a weakly elderly woman at a restaurant, she had no idea that she was helping a former Queen! But that’s what Mrs. Alexandria is, and she is extremely grateful to Nancy. She only wishes that she knew the identity and whereabouts of her grandson… But maybe this is another front on which Nancy may offer her services?


This story was a tad more confusing that some of Nancy’s other cases – more confusing, but also more easy to solve, if that makes any sense. For example, Nancy missed a very obvious deduction which would have helped her to solve the mystery in about half the time, but which was saved for later in the book (and which complicated matters dreadfully in the meantime).

Nancy and her friends go on a few triple date type outings. Nancy also models a dress for an aspiring fashion designer-friend of hers.

Conclusion. Okay. Read The Clue of the Broken Locket and The Mystery of Lilac Inn first.
