    There was certainly a lot of action and danger for Nancy in The Mystery at Lilac Inn. As usual, multi talented Nancy has no problem solving the case all while conveniently and artfully dodging danger. It certainly helps that luck and fate sure seem to be on her side. She always seems to have the right tools, props, money, fatherly advice, and police assistance at her disposal. A more complex mystery than the others in the series so far, and more challenging for young readers, but an exciting and [...]

    i don't know what it is, but these are like candy. they crack me up (so quaint and implausible!), but i keep on reading and as soon as one is over, i pick up the next!

    I'm just saying, if I were Carson Drew, Nancy would never leave her room. She'd be locked in there for life.

    Another so-so in a series I loved as a girl There is just too much going on here. I needed a stack of cue cards with character names, what they did, how old they are, what color hair they have, all the important stuff.Here's the problem. TOO MUCH is happening ALL AT ONCE! (I hate using caps, btw.) This is a breathless read for sure. Nancy has to deal with - almost being run off the road, having a bomb go off in a cabin she's staying in, being shot at by a spear-gun while skin-diving, having a ro [...]

    This was the Nancy Drew book that got me hooked on the series when I was 10. I remember being sick with the flu and home from school. My mom brought home several of the Nancy Drew books that a friend had given her for me that her daughter had outgrown. This was the first one I read. I so LOVED Nancy that it inspired me to write my first real story - a mystery modeled on the Nancy Drew concept. My mom and I added to my collection over the years, and I still have them all - about 25 of them - I'm [...]

    I love the Nancy Drew mysteries, the style and time they were written in intrigues me. The mysteries are quite good too, meaning I wasn't able to solve this one. I was fooled by a red herring. The food descriptions are especially mouthwatering. A nice afternoon read.

    So far, this is my favorite Nancy Drew case. It really had me wondering what was going to happen. Even though it's a juvenile book, it still had me fooled!

    This is the fourth in the series of original (1930) Nancy Drew books. This book includes four nicely-scanned full-page grayscale images and "The Nancy I Knew", an introduction by Mildred Wirt Benson, who wrote this book (to an outline provided by the publisher) under the Carolyn Keene pseudonym.The introduction is in some ways the best part of this book; Benson notes that the first three books sold well, but when original publisher Edward Stratemeyer died, his inexperienced daughters took over: [...]

    As a child I read tons of Nancy Drew, recently I found out that in the 1950's and 60's the earlier books had all been rewritten. This book is the actual 1930 edition. I must say I didn't like this Nancy Drew very much, she was spoiled, elitist and racist. If I had read an earlier copy as a child i'm afraid I would have stopped at that one. The Mystery of Lilac Inn 1961 edition. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ this is the Nancy Drew that I know and love. It's the same characters but an entirely di [...]

    When I was in 4th grade, the table I sat at in the school library was adjacent to the shelf where I could eye those inviting spines labeled: Carolyn Keene. I read at least one a month that year.Returning to her as an adult, I'm delighted to find Nancy Drew as awesome as I remember her. The writing is quaint, but strong enough to stand the test of time. This particular volume was chock-full of Nancy-in-peril scenes, but also pretty convoluted in the plot department and some bits of the conclusion [...]

    My least favourite Nancy Drew so far. Why the hell was everybody so sanguine about a time bomb being planted and almost killing two young girls? It was like, a bomb? The whole cottage was destroyed? You were almost murdered? Crazy! What clues did you find, Nancy?

    I do believe this is one of my more favorite Nancy Drew mysteries. The story truly had me baffled until the final strings were pulled. After Nancy's friend, Emily Willoughby, has revealed that odd events have been taking place around the inn, Nancy Drew is on the job. But that is not her only problem, because someone in River Heights is actually impersonating Nancy and getting away with it! How will Nancy cope with all the mysterious occurrences? Better yet, how can she capture her own double?

    A trip down memory lane! This book should have been called The Mysteries at Lilac Inn as the stolen diamonds was just one of the many perplexing things going on in and around Lilac Inn. Who is impersonating Nancy? Who stole the lilac bush? Who or what almost capsized Nancy and Helen's canoe? What's not to love about a Nancy Drew mystery? Great characters, action on every page, and the best titian blond sleuth ever! Writers of adult novels should take a page from Carolyn Keene's book and fill the [...]

    A small trip to the past! This book originally published in 1930. Terms like blue pipes, skin diving and charge plates in leather cases are charming. Yet, the Nancy Drew Series as well as the Hardy Boys has always been a fun place to start with mysteries! Young kids may like the current series better!

    I love reading this series when I was younger. However, this story seemed absurd just because Nancy Drew was just lucky to stay away from being badly hurt! The mystery part was well thought of, though it did sound a bit ridiculous when things were finally revealed.

    Nancy Drew returns in another thrilling mystery that just keeps making this series better and better.

    I like the mystery - it was pretty cool and interesting. This is for the revised edition since that's the one I've read so far. :P

    I am captivated by the descriptions of food in these Nancy Drew books. There seems to be at least one major meal per book, meticulously described.The Lilac Inn dining room provides an excellent luncheon. First course is beef broth. Following that is "creamed chicken on toast, peas, salad, and iced tea."Oh, and for dinner is a real treat! Emily had arranged a steak cook-out on the patio, and the social director joined in the lively banter. When they finished eating, she brought out a guitar. 'How [...]

    This was such a fun story! It is my favorite of the four I've read so far. For some reason I never read any Nancy Drew books when I was growing up, but I'm having a blast reading them for the first time as an adult. I definitely recommend this one, I enjoyed every minute of it!

    I loved this series when I was a kid. I think partly it's because I liked and could relate to Nancy, and it's always a plus to enjoyment when you can see yourself in the shoes of a character you respect.Looking back on it now, I can see that it did have issues, but it's still an amusing story. I remembered some of the mystery from my youth, guessed at other parts, and was surprised by still other parts. Worth a read, but not a must read.

    I have always been a fan of Nancy Drew novels and so it was a delight to be able to return to these stories and engage once more with Nancy. I read these as a child and I was surprised this time around to see how simplistic these novels are. As a kid I was totally blown away by her deductive skills and how she could make connections other characters missed. I was inspired by her courage and intelligence. I still find her all of these things, but reading now I find that the stories are a lot more [...]

    Unfortunately, the quality dipped again after that hopeful progress in the previous book. While Nancy is still a strong, interesting character, this mystery is just plain messy. Pretty much none of it makes sense, nor is it structured in a pleasing whodunit format. The appeal of a mystery is two-fold: it should set up clues that allow the reader to intelligently participate in the story, as a co-detective of sorts; and it should include enough clever twists and reveals to keep readers on their t [...]

    The Nancy Drew original Mystery Stories began in the 1930s, as a reluctant fair move by the publisher of a boys adventure story series, and the rest is happy history! I "read every single one" as a girl, many years ago and am enjoying a wonderful time with them again.Put "Nancy Drew" in and see for yourself - enpedia/wiki/Nancy_Drew-the section of her bio "character" says it all - she is a supergirl, master of a dizzying list of skills and talents and never seems to need cash, and always seems [...]

    Nancy and Helen Corning are stay at historic Lilac Inn, which are owned by their mutual friend, Emily Crandall, in preparation of Emily’s wedding. But strange happenings and hauntings occur, which threaten to spoil the wedding, not to mention the lives of Emily and her fiance, Dick. In addition, Nancy discovers she has a wicked double, who is stealing items at River Heights stores by using Nancy’s charge cards. Emily’s diamonds are stolen and replaced with fakes during a dramatic evening d [...]

    Another typical Nancy Drew story, where Nancy is smart, independent, and a mystery solving sleuth, though she needs to be a little more careful as she did have to be rescued off of a burning, sinking boat in this one! My daughter loves these stories though, so what can I say, I'm sure we will read more of Nancy's adventures.

    My mom and I read this book when I was 7. This is the book that made me start liking Nancy Drew. This book was full of suspense and suprise. I like mysteries because you can solve the story while you're reading it. Anyways, I would recommend this book to any grade from 3-8. I think anyone can enjoy it!!!

    I swear this just reeks of absurdity but it's so sugary. I can't believe how impossibly silly the scenes and actions are! And yet, I read on because I'll always love a goodScooby doo hunt. On to the next!

    A Quickie ReviewYou know what to expect from an installment of an established franchise, and that's just what you get here. Not much to say other than that.Score: 4/5
