I discovered the world of "River Heights" when I was about 14 years old - that was when sets of the books were flying off of the shelves at Sams Club and Costco.      I was an avid reader, a self-professed tomboy, and therefore the harrowing adventures that Nancy always found herself in vastly appealed to my independent nature.      But as an older, "more mature" adult now, (whoo, 21, that's getting up there!)

I honestly didn't even like these books as a child. But then again, I still don't have any kind of affection for the mystery genre. This was likely my only issue with this series of books, but I haven't reread them, so I can't say for sure.

Again classic!

Another childhood memory. I even read my mothers copies from her childhood. They are dated, but fun

Do you have a "Read before I die" list? Put these books on it. Now. What if you die tomorrow?
