Christmas Countdown #8
Welcome back to Countdown to Christmas. Countdown to Christmas is a weekly feature where I recommend a different Christmas-y book each week to read this holiday season. Can you even believe how quickly Christmas is approaching?! Before you know it, it’ll be Christmas Eve!
Today’s book is The Case of the Twin Teddy Bears (Nancy Drew #116) by Carolyn Keene
On the trail of a teddy bear thief, nancy unwraps double-dealing and double crosses!
Bess is working during the Christmas rush at Beary Wonderful, a toy and teddy bear shop, when the holiday season takes a sudden scary turn. The owner’s prized collection of antique teddy bears — cute, cuddly, and worth a bundle — has been ripped off. But the break-in is only the beginning of a much bigger and more brazen teddy bear caper.
The attempted theft of Bess’s own bear — a replica of one of the antiques — leads Nancy to believe that more is at stake than a couple of burgled bears. For Nancy knows that even something as innocent as a teddy bear can be stuffed with intrigue!
The Case of the Twin Teddy Bears is such a fun and short Christmas story! Like most Nancy Drew books, the mystery isn’t too intense, but it is still filled with plenty of twists and turns. The book is also quite festive, and even though it’s about a robbery, it still put me in the Christmas spirit. I really appreciated the length of this book, too, because at Christmas time, I don’t always have as much time to read as I would like, so it’s nice, for me, to enjoy shorter books this time of year. Overall, this was a very enjoyable book. I really think Nancy Drew fans will love this holiday themed mystery!
