    A decent mystery, similar to The Secret of Shadow Ranch, but with a subplot that involved tainted cosmetics Not a bad story, but the villain of the piece was telegraphed right from the beginning There were two twists in the last chapter that put an interesting spin on what constitutes revenge and punishment though Made for a nice bow to put on top of the final package Find it Get it Read it.

    Nancy, George, and Bess are on vacation at Spa Solaire in Arizona, where Bess plans to lose five pounds, and George hopes to play some serious tennis Nancy, though, can never seem to relax, and she uncovers a mystery almost immediately It begins with the black widow spider someone clearly plants in the girls casita, and escalates quickly, involving mysterious security measures, a kidnapping, sabotage of exercise equipment, and plenty of other evidence that suggests foul play is afoot Nancy does what she does best, and begins investigating the various suspicious events, even to the point of risking her safety.I have to admit that I remembered The Secret at Solaire as an amazing book I read it for a mystery book report in sixth grade, and since that time, have always thought of it as one of the best books I read as a kid After this rereading, however, two things are quite clear 1 I had terrible taste when I was a kid, and 2 This book is absolutely nothing like I remember it.In my defense, I think this was one of the first mystery novels I ever read outside of the Baby sitters Club, so my experience with the conventions of the mystery genre was very limited I suspect that what I have always remembered as the book s brilliance was probably just my fascination with the way an author builds a mystery I was impressed too easily by the author s ability to mislead me and twist the plot around in certain points to make things interesting As an adult, I know that all mystery writers do this, and I can recognize that Carolyn Keene doesn t do it so well in this book In fact, the entire thing seems pretty predictable to my adult mind, and the behavior of the villains is downright cheesy.That said, though, there were some interesting things to take away from my re reading of The Secret at Solaire I was surprised, for one thing, to note that Nancy is 18 years old It makes sense, since if she were a minor, it would be a lot less plausible for her to be at a spa unaccompanied by an adult, and much less likely that she would be able to conduct her investigations But I couldn t really think of another middle grade heroine who was so old And yet, I obviously had no trouble at all relating to her when I was eleven I think it must be a function of the mystery genre I don t need to relate to the character on a personal level to be invested in the twists and turns of the story.Another thing that caught my attention was Bess s continual obsession with her weight I don t think this is that common in children s books these days, but it did seem to be kind of common in the books I read as a kid I can remember reading Nothing s Fair in Fifth Grade, The Cat Ate My Gymsuit, and Blubber, books that were not necessarily all about weight, but in which girls were down on themselves about it and or ostracized by their peers because of it Obviously there are plenty of titles out there today about this issue, too, but the difference is that these older books almost assumed that every girl is constantly worrying over her weight, while newer titles really focus on the character s health and the importance of losing weight safely They also tend to talk about losing significant amounts of weight, rather than just five pounds for vanity s sake.Finally, I noticed that Nancy Drew has very little personality I have a feeling this is on purpose, so that all girls can put themselves in her shoes and appreciate her adventures, but with the weak plotline and very little character development, there wasn t much for me to sink my teeth into I never would have made it to the end of the story if not for my powerful feelings of nostalgia toward the book.The Secret at Solaire is out of print, but Nancy Drew lives on in graphic novels and in the modernized Nancy Drew Girl Detective series.

    Nancy, Bess and George are spending a week at Spa Solaire because Bess has won a vacation there for selling Solaire beauty products The spa is beautiful and the southwestern landscape is relaxing, but as soon as they arrive Nancy senses trouble at Spa Solaire, from black widows, to psychotic tennis ball machines, there are strange incidents and accidents plaguing the spa, even with the guests escorted everywhere by staff members people are getting hurt and one employee disappears Is someone trying to ruin Solaire s reputation and run them out of business, or is the motive much personal

    Not sure Nancy, Bess and George have been to spa before, but they have been out West, and their Western desert settings tend to yield good books and the spa angle yields novelties, like Bess losing weight Same sabotage, but for a different reason than usual with some actual social commentary and ethical issues which makes this better than most in my book
