Writer: Walter Karig (1932).
Revised By: Harriet Stratemeyer Adams (1968).
Nancy receives a letter from England which is intended for an heiress, also named Nancy Drew. Later, Nancy finds out that a guy named Edgar Nixon has stolen the letters and going to get married to the heiress soon. Nancy has to track the heiress before Edgar successfully carries his plot to get the inheritance for himself.
This story shares a similar style to other stories before the seventh book. Only the seventh book has a unique style and slightly more to the real life. The 'Lonely Hearts Club' probably has existed quite some time, but as for me which encounter this 'term' for the first time, I really feel it's hilarious.
- Nancy finds several letters posted to Edgar from his former landlady. Each letter enclosed with twenty-five dollars and a message which indicates that Edgar is running a Lonely Hearts Club.
- Nancy keeps searching for the heiress, but Edgar tries multiple ways to stop her from finding the heiress. He plans to take his bride to London but Nancy able to stop them just in time at the airport.
- The heiress has no idea with the inheritance as Edgar wants to keep it from her before they get married.
Rating: ★★★ (3/5)
