Pretty good.

A very good ND book! The mystery and setting was very interesting, Nancy was great, and her investigating was very fun. I especially liked the scenes where Nancy, Bess, and George investigate after hours at the village during the night. Who doesn't like night-time sleuthing, especially at a pioneer village! Although, some things weren't explained, like why someone who got fired from the village was spotted there and acted weird when Nancy asks them about it. And there's a weird error on page 131 ...more

This is a very interesting story. Nancy and the others are working as volunteers in one of the towns that tries to re-create the past. Tourists can see how the early settlers lived their lives without having the conveniences of the modern day.

Lots of things seem to be going wrong at the place, though, including a guy hurt by a musket, a gift shop that ends up destroyed and what seems to be a ghost walking along at night holding a lantern. There's a threatening call and a major argument between t

An exciting Nancy Drew mystery with a spooky twist.
When Nancy and her friends, Bess and George offer to help out at the Persimmon woods pioneer village they get more than they bargained for!
With sightings of a ghostly lady with a lamp and other creepy things going on at the village including vandalism Nancy sets to work.
Why and who is behind all these seemingly malicious acts?
Does someone want the village closed down? If so why?
With plenty of suspects and many motives Nancy and her friends had b

This being my 2nd Nancy Drew book to read, I feel I have had a good sampling of the series. The reading level is ages 10-12 but I wouldn't reccomend it to that age group. I think more maturity is required to navigate the ethics presented in the series and to maturely handle the romantic content. It's unfortunate that by the time a child reaches that maturity, they, like me, will be bored by the simplicity and implausibility of the lead female's adventures.

Nancy Bess and George are working at the Pioneer Village, a living history museum that is being plague by accidents, there are also rumors swirling around that the owners is embezzling money, plus guests have been spotting a ghostly woman carrying a lantern wandering the village. It's up to Nancy to get the the bottom of these hauntings!
