Love Match
29 August 2009 | by RikerDonegalSee all my reviews

Nancy's first solo adventure of the second season is a lackluster affair. When Nancy spies an old school chum stealing a diamond necklace from a store, she follows her and discovers that the girl (now an up-and-coming tennis star) is a kleptomaniac. She steals without even knowing she is doing it!! Apparently. Anyway, Nancy is then hired by the girl's father to, um, I'm not sure exactly. Cover up the girl's crimes or something? Something the normally very law-abiding Nancy is more than happy to do. Things pick up at the mid-point of the episode when the story shifts to Las Vegas and the girls gets mixed up in a major cat burglary scandal. Nancy feels sure that her client (kleptomaniac though she may be) is certainly not up to being a major cat burglar and there is a lot of fun to be had from trying to figure out who the real culprit is, from the healthy list of suspects. Even better, the resolution is satisfying and the answer makes sense. Provided you don't think about it too much.

Susan Buckner debuts here as the third actress to play Nancy's sidekick and she's very pretty and funny. Before this Ruth Cox played a different character and, of course, Jean Rasey was the best of the bunch playing George for the duration of the first season. Why they got rid of her is a 'Nancy Drew Mystery' to me.
