    I must say I wasn t a fan of the Dana Girls, the crime solving sister sleuths who were stop 2 on my tour of 1930s girls mystery series While I appreciate formulaic fiction with the best of them and find it very cool that there was formula fiction in the 1930 featuring girls doing something other than cooking or sewing or preparing to be Mrs June Cleaver in another decade or two, I found it hard okay, impossible to look past the incredible sense of entitlement that Jean and Louise displayed I must say I wasn t a fan of the Dana Girls, the crime solving sister sleuths who were stop 2 on my tour of 1930s girls mystery series While I appreciate formulaic fiction with the best of them and find it very cool that there was formula fiction in the 1930 featuring girls doing something other than cooking or sewing or preparing to be Mrs June Cleaver in another decade or two, I found it hard okay, impossible to look past the incredible sense of entitlement that Jean and Louise displayed In the opening chapters the girls seemed less horrified that someone broke into their...

    I read this series so long ago, that it is difficult to remember details All I remember now is that I liked the Dana Girls better than Nancy Drew, although I don t remember why It may have been the whole boarding school scene that appealed to me.

    This is a fun girls series and one must not expect too much from this genre I enjoyed the old fashioned lifestyle and the sort of detection methods without the help of computers, smartphones or Internet It is a sort of nostalgia for days gone by, a sort of fascination for a simpler time From that aspect, I really enjoyed this book I was, however, hopingof boarding school action, but there was absolutely nothing It was rather pointless to set this book in a boarding school...
