    One thought on “The Bluebeard Room”

    1. Now, I have read some poorly-written Nancy Drew books before, but this really takes the cake. It's as if the writer had never read a Nancy Drew book before. Nancy refers to Carson as "Daddy" rather than "Dad" and calls Aunt Eloise "Aunt Ellie." Worse yet, George's characterization is completely wrong; she comes off as a clone of Bess, rather than her opposite. Additionally, the descriptions of Lance seem to have come from an especially inept romance novelist. (As in, I have read literal Harlequi [...]

    2. Review for curious fans of Blackmoor Manor:-Aunt Eloise from Secrets Can Kill, hey now.-Linda Penvellyn was originally Lisa. (Name change prolly due to Lisa already being used in Treasure in the Royal Tower.)-Nigel (different last name) is "an immensely fat man with a gray mustache and goatee," who owns a bookstore.-Whole bunch of nonsense with bands occurs. Notable: a one "Jane Royce" described as a strikingly attractive woman of either 21 or 22, with taffy-blond hair styled in a artful bush, a [...]

    3. I have to agree with everyone else, this is a pretty bad Nancy Drew. Over half of the book is weird romance with a rockstar Nancy literally just met, and the mystery definitely plays second fiddle to the love triangle which develops. I'm thinking this book was originally a Nancy Drew Files(the series aimed at teens) book that was repurposed for the main series, because there's a reference to "making love", tons of romance and poor Ned being shoved aside, and not to mention, DRUGS. If I had read [...]

    4. Nancy travels to England to visit a friend who seems to be suffering from a mysterious illness that could be connected with witchcraft. Her new husband is hiding something in the castle, the locals are shunning her and there may be drugs and rock-stars involved. Nancy has her hands full on this overseas case.

    5. Possibly one of the most poorly-written Nancy Drew books I've ever read. It didn't even read like a mystery, but more like a bad romance novel. The mystery was good enough to earn the 2nd star, but the whole book felt somewhat disjointed. I would recommend trying a different one.

    6. I really hope Ned is reading this book, so he can see what Nancy is up to when he is not around. Seriously, way to much romance and a weak plot

    7. As far as I'm concerned, one of the best Nancy Drew books of its time. This one reads like a true mystery adventure, bringing out all the best qualities of Nancy and this series.
