Thank you so much Jacinta, 2023 made! 🤩🙏🏻💖REPOST • @hungrythesaurus
“I didn’t grow up reading Nancy Drew and I still dip in and out of crime generally so I was a little worried when I ordered The Nancys that I was going to struggle.
My assumptions couldn’t have been more wrong. While Nancy Drew is definitely present, there is no pre-reading needed. And while there is a fat load of crime and scaries in there, The Nancys is about so much more than murder and mystery.
I was completely invested in this gorgeous little family. Tippy, Pike and Devon might just be the most perfect trio. Whenever they are ready to spring to life, I am ready to be adopted into their clan.
There was so much heart and love poured into these characters that even just thinking about them makes me warm and fuzzy.
And if that doesn’t convince you, The Nancys is actually so bloody funny too! Like genuinely laugh out loud, cackle on the tram, lay in bed and laugh to yourself funny.
There are plenty of witty one liners, some excellent banter and amazingly balanced dark humour that gives you that reprieve when the tension is biting or the mushy stuff has made you too gooey. I have never read a funnier crime book and with the exception of future Nancy books, I kinda doubt I will.
The Nancys really is a perfectly balanced book that goes above and beyond its genre or blurb.”
