Girl Detective #27 Intruder

This title never grabbed my attention, so I have been bypassing it when selecting Nancys to read. But it turns out that it's not a bad story - there are several classic Nancy devices used, such as "ghosts" and secret underground tunnels. And there's also a lot of educational information provided about Jane Austen and the Regency period.

I suggest that the following alternate titles might have made the book more appealing to reads:

Mystery of the Shattered Teapots
The Ghost (or the Haunting) of Cardinal Corners
The Teapot Scandal (this is what Chief McGinnis teasingly calls it)
