The Bungalow Mystery, by Carolyn Keene
In this early (#3) Nancy Drew, Nancy is still besties with Helen Corning, although Helen's impending marriage seems to be straining their friendship slightly- leading the way for Helen to nearly disappear to make room for Bess and George. Nancy is also dating a fellow I don't remember ever seeing again, a Don Cameron, another super-easygoing partner who is willing to take a supporting role and to take second place to solving mysteries. In this one, Nancy helps Laura Pendleton, a recently orphaned heiress, expose her false guardians, and simultaneously helps her father solve an embezzling case.
