Nancy DrewEver since I was a young girl, I’ve loved to read. Especially Nancy Drew and Trixie Beldon. By the time I graduated High School, I had almost a complete set of Nancy Drew mystery books, eagerly awaiting each Christmas morning to see whether I’d receive another one.
Christmas, with all its surprises, is much like a mystery to me. What’s in that package? Will they like the gift I’ve bought them? So many clues to follow. With a mystery story, the wonderful entertainment of a ‘whodunnit’ can last much longer than one day. With each turn of the page, your mind races: Will the culprit catch them before they solve the crime? Will the character be injured? What happens next?
Your heart beats along with the main character’s as you try to figure out who the guilty party is before the hero or heroine. Much like a Christmas present, you sigh when it’s over and realize what a wonderful gift you’ve received.
‘Tis the season for a great whodunnit!
