Review: The Bungalow Mystery

This is the third Nancy Drew Mystery in the series.  In this book Nancy and her friend Helen Corning get caught in a storm  and are saved by Laura Pendleton who states she may need Nancy's help in the near future.  Laura is an orphan who is about to meet her new guardian.
In the meantime, Mr. Drew requests Nancy's help in discovering who has stolen bank securities from the local bank.  While investigating the security thefts, Nancy is drawn into Laura's dilemma with her rude, scary guardians who state that Laura's parents have left her with nothing.
So here are the mysteries:
What happened to Laura's family's money, her inheritance?
How does the bungalow come into play?
What is it about the Aborn's (her new guardians) that isn't right?  Is Laura in danger with them?
How do the missing securities tie in?

I liked this book once I got into it (and past reading Kathy Herman's Baxter Series books).  I didn't feel the answers just fell into Nancy's lap as easily this time.  There was quite a bit of suspense, even though I did figure out what was going on with the guardians pretty quick (okay they are juvenile books).  And Nancy was in some peril.  We didn't see Helen very much though.

I would give this book 4 stars.
