Nancy receives a letter informing her that she is heir to a fortune. This story tells of her search for another Nancy Drew.

I really liked this installment of the series because it had a race against time aspect to it not only to find Nancy Smith Drew but also to stop her from marrying a gold digger. This almost felt like an episode of The Dating Game gone wrong; a contestant being yanked off stage. As for the gold digger himself, he came off like Max Bialystock from The Producers asking little old ladies to make their checks out to CASH. Of course Nancy solves the case but only after she is drugged, blacking-out and nearly missing a very important plane flight to New York. But all ends well with Miss Drew being given lots of warm fuzzys and a glint in her eye awaiting her next mystery.
