Goodreads Summary:

Nancy Drew’s keen mind is tested when she searches for Mr. Crowley’s missing will.

Some relevant characters:

Nancy Drew – 16 or 18, depending on the version you read. Blonde, blue-eyed, detective with a razor sharp intuition.

The Turner sisters (Mary and Edna) – Aunties. Guardians of Judy. Former friends of Crowley.

Judy – 5 years old. Orphaned after her parents die in a tragic boat explosion.

The Hoover sisters – Allison has operatic talent. Grace bakes cakes and brews tea.

The Tophams (Richard, his Mrs., Ada, and Isabel) – Inherited Josiah Crowley’s estate. Totally rude; “bougie af” per Daniel’s take. Daughters Ada and Isabel are the Heathers.

Josiah Crowley – Deceased. Formerly filthy rich. Seems to have promised a lot of people a lot of money.

Carson Drew – Nancy’s handsome father. Well-known lawyer in River Heights.

Hannah Gruen – The Drew’s housekeeper and surrogate mother to Nancy.

Signor Mascagni – Retired professional voice instructor, now gives lessons to the gifted few of River Heights.

Abby Rowan – Cousin of Crowley’s wife.

The Mathews brothers – More deserving poor.

Jeff Tucker – Topham cottage Caretaker. Helps Nancy come out of the closet.
