So I agreed to play the part of Esther Rackham in a film about the heist that gave River Heights its name, and there was all this trouble on the set, and I figured out who was behind it. Case closed, right? Wrong! Once the camera starts rolling, a huge fire breaks out on the set, setting back production again. We're running out of time and funds.

    Continuing where the previous book left off, this volume is yet another dose of sleuthing fun.

    A good carry-on story for Lights, Camera... It was fun reading more about Nancy's experiences in acting and the world of behind the scenes. But there wasn't really a huge mystery element to this. The side story, a fire at a mansion, is the mystery but it gets only about two chapters. The main focus of the story seems to be Nancy's stage fright and the real story of the Rackhams - because it turns out the old legend might just have it wrong. But no real clues and puzzles and suspicious behavior. A good carry-on story for Lights, Camera... It was fun reading more about Nancy's experiences in acting and the world of behind the scenes.

    This was my first Nancy Drew other than the classic first 56 volumes and I am reading it as an adult. And ... it just didn’t do it for me. The switch to first person worked fine, and I liked the updates especially having George a computer whiz (but why is Bess suddenly a carpenter expert?). What bothered me is that the book felt slow compared to the classic Nancy Drews, maybe because so much of it focused on “this is how movies are made.” There was plenty of action, yes, but the focus of the boo This was my first Nancy Drew other than the classic first 56 volumes and I am reading it as an adult.

What bothered me is that the book felt slow compared to the classic Nancy Drews, maybe because so much of it focused on “this is how movies are made.” There was plenty of action, yes, but the focus of the book was as much on teaching the reader about movie-making as on the mystery itself. Nancy herself is filled with self-doubt about her acting. That’s believable, OK, but it also means Nancy doesn’t feel like Nancy. One of the things I loved about classic Nancy Drew was that she made it OK to be self-confident and smart and curious. Yes, OK, Nancy is supremely self-confident in her element (rappelling into a cavern) here. And yes, her self-doubt comes up only when she’s in an area (acting) out of her specialty. But I don’t know, it just didn’t make Nancy feel like Nancy to me. Perhaps if I were a 3rd-grader coming upon these books for the first time, this would be more appealing. Then again, there were other more believable teen sleuths in books in the 40s/50s (Judy Bolton, Connie Blair) who were never as popular as self-confident, smart, courageous Nancy.

    Really liked this book, it wasn't long and the storyline (especially the mystery unravelling part) was interesting. Unfortunately, I did take off 1 star because some parts of the plot, especially the beginning, were a bit boring. This is the first Nancy Drew book I read (yes) and I feel like it was a great start to the series!

    This is actually a continuation of the last book, which is rare for this series. It wrapped up the movie plot nicely, and solved another mystery that I found odd ever since it was talked about in book 5. The description on the back about the fire on set, though, is completely off and doesn’t even happen there. I’m excited to finally have a chance to read this whole series!

With the kind of work Nancy Drew does, I thought she'd be good at acting but seeing her struggle showed me that she's just like someone real. This was a fun read and involved a twist that I didn't expect.

    Full of action, great description, and cliff hangers that don't let you put the book down. I would for sure recommend. Full of action, great description, and cliff hangers that don't let you put the book down. I would for sure recommend.

    This is a new take on Nancy Drew written in the first person. The problem I have with this series is that the facts about Nancy, Ned, George, and Bess are not accurate with the original series of Nancy Drew and Nancy Drew files. The ages, descriptions, etc. are so different that I cannot stand this book series.

    Well, this book was almost as weird as the previous one that it continues. Nancy's extreme stage fright is very out of character but yields a nice scene with more psychological depth with Hannah that is unusual for these books. The River Heights history tie in for both books is interesting. Well, this book was almost as weird as the previous one that it continues.

    Okay, not one of the best Nancy Drew books at all! She didn't do much investigating in this one. Almost the whole book was kinda boring! There was no fire on set even! Is that Nancy Drew book a joke or what?! If u want to read a good mystery, I don't recommend this one. Okay, not one of the best Nancy Drew books at all! She didn't do much investigating in this one.

    Very very easy to read. More like a filler in the space between one book and another when you don't want your brain to have too much to think about. Easily finished in a few hours.
