As Nancy's friend Emily prepares for her wedding, Nancy and Helen visit her at Lilac Inn. Before long, a weekend of scuba diving and wedding planning turns into disaster as Emily's heirloom diamonds are stolen, as is Nancy's identity, by a larcenous doppelgänger. Laura Linney does an admirable job reading this 1930 mystery, although she's not completely believable as a young woman of 1930--even one with the tenacity and spunk of Nancy Drew. Further, her pace seems rushed. Nevertheless, the story is a good one, filled with surprising lore about lilacs, and the action is punctuated by mood music and sound effects. S.E.S.
