Ok, in my quest to re-read my childhood heroine books, I've strayed from the mysteries to watch the characters in these books.
For the young adult books that they are, I'm afraid today's pre-teen girls may find the character development lacking. There is little to no interaction between the lesser characters except for descriptions of what they look like or what they are wearing, but the author does describe the food in greater de Nancy kissed Ned! There is little to no interaction between the lesser characters except for descriptions of what they look like or what they are wearing, but the author does describe the food in greater detail.
Poor Burt and Dave, while they are usually there, they don't do much - except this time Dave falls in the chimney. Bess finally overcomes her timidity and whacks a bad guy and then gets shaky.
It's the most action I've seen out of her except for crying, being scared and complaining she's hungry. Outside of that, I'm not sure what she does. George while she has a slightly bigger role, very little is known about her either. Apparently all of the characters are conveniently only children because there is never a mention of any siblings tagging along or causing trouble. And what are the boys studying in college? We know they all play football and Ned of course is the quarterback.
Why he isn't dating the head cheerleader is beyond me.

Ned is also on the rowing team and in this book becomes president of his fraternity. The boys do have finals in this book, but take time out to go places with the girls. My question is - there was a big party "June Week" just before finals. What college is still in session having exams in June? And seriously a big party just before? All through these books I've been trying to figure out where River Heights is located. I assumed that it was near New York City because Nancy's aunt lives there and she visits often.
No where near NY state. But this book makes direct reference to the Ohio River and its tributaries. Which would make sense because Mildred Benson was living and working in Toledo Ohio. Did I like this book? Nancy stumbles on a mystery; she's girl wonder so she solves it in less than pages without any serious mishaps, although she takes quite a beating in this one. She's knocked out by a panel falling on her and she is knocked out of a boat, her scuba gear gets tangled cutting off her air and she falls down an embankment, but she comes out of all of that unscathed - remarkable.
At the end, instead of falling into Ned's arms, she's wondering when she's going to find her next mystery.

The title was familiar, but I have a feeling that's because it's one of the books Claudia Sometimes you just have a day where the only thing that will get rid of your bad mood is a hot bath, a scented candle and a Nancy Drew novel. The title was familiar, but I have a feeling that's because it's one of the books Claudia Kishi references in the Baby-Sitters Club series. Sadly, it didn't quite live up to Claudia's recommendation, or my childhood memories of Nancy Drew. Maybe this just isn't one of the better mysteries.
The villains' motivations were never really clarified and I figured out who one of the villains was incredibly early in the book--so early that I was sure he must have been a red herring, and was confused when I realised this suspicious character was genuinely the villain. I did enjoy the wholesome, innocent nostalgia of these books. The girls dress up and attend fraternity dinners, dances and boating races with their gentlemanly beaus. They still have plenty of independence, and even Bess gets the chance to prove that she can defend herself.
That said, the girls are pretty caricatured--Nancy is the quick-thinking detective, George is the strong tomboy, and Bess is the worrisome girly girl who is always ruining her diet. But I suppose there was always a girl for the reader to relate to. A fun, quick, nostalgic read for tonight's bath, but not the best-written mystery I've come across in this series.

Mar 05, Laura rated it really liked it. Sometimes you just gotta read a little Nancy Drew for fun.
I loved these books when I was younger, and I still love them now. Feb 26, Sahifa rated it really liked it Shelves: This Nancy drew story gave me that relief and ecstasy which the first monsoon rain gives after the scortching summer. This is the thing which I had been missing in the nancy drew mysteries which I had read lately.
All I asked for was "A simple refreshing mystery" and I recieved it here. According to me this is the whole idea about a cozy mystery. If the story consists of lots of adventure ,gangsters and goons it becomes more of a thriller rather than a mystery. A cozy mystery should have one crime This Nancy drew story gave me that relief and ecstasy which the first monsoon rain gives after the scortching summer.
What is Kobo Super Points?
A cozy mystery should have one crime or two related crimes followed by a clue here and there ,some logical reasoning and then the Result!! Nancy drew and friends not only solves the mystery of the spook but also unearthes a lost treasure some part of it is always unbelievable,but I like it nevertheless I really enjoyed it ,as a matter of fact devoured it. This book is definitely going to be one of my Nancy drew's favourites.
