    A Ghostiing We Will Go Nancy has a golf tournament to attend, and along with her is her she brings her girlfriends, her boyfriend Ned, and her father. How exiting, golf. Not! I remember loving this book when I was much younger, and while reading it I could see why. At least the golf tournament didn’t take over the entire book. So, while playing golf someone points out a bridge to Nancy that leads into the woods and tells her that she should not cross the bridge due to ghosts. Ghosts? Yes.

So, while playing golf someone points out a bridge to Nancy that leads into the woods and tells her that she should not cross the bridge due to ghosts. Ghosts? Yes. And this is what makes this a perfect Halloween story for the faint of heart, which is what I am. You won’t get me reading Hillhouse or is that Hellhouse? In this story, you will find Nancy and her school chums crossing the bridge, seeing a scarecrow flapping its sheet arms in the wind, and then you will hear various scary noises, and then way back in the woods you will find an old cabin. It is also about a missing bracelet and a woman who had lived in a house in those very woods, but her house had burned down. As Nancy Drew stories go, this was a fun read. I am now wishing to read the one about the ski Jump because a friend told me that it is a great read. But that book seems like a good one to read when you y have snow on the ground-a winter book. And if not snow, a Christmas tree in your house.

    Nancy's 15th dip into the wild world of mystery solving took her out on a trip with her father to a resort to help him with clients, and to GOLF. GOLFING is heavily featured in this adventure.

    Andrew bought me a 1937 edition for my Christmas present this year. Hands down my favorite present this holiday. I thoroughly enjoyed the thick paper/pages, "old time" typeface and dated verbiage. It was like seeing an old dear friend after many years apart. Brings back wonderful memories for me.

    Compared to the last Nancy Drew novel I've read, this one was so much better, probably due to the fact that this is a later piece. Mystery-wise, it is the usual Nancy-Drew-is-so-lucky scheme to be at the right place, and in the right time, to have met people that would help her solve the case, even her finding that small brass chest that would help determining the suspects. I did like the plot-twist where a character was highly suspicious but turned out to be uninvolved.

Using a telephone where at present we have cellphones. I wonder how much use the technology of today would be to Nancy's sleuthing.

    Golf resort mystery for Nancy and her friends! Nancy always plays a perfect round of golf, except when she injures her hand. Suspicious missing jewelry? Keep a lookout for someone wearing lots of it. More golf. An annoying man who always boasts and changes his handwriting. Don't go over that bridge that leads to that mysterious abandoned mansion. Golf tournament. Congratulations, Nancy (as usual.)

    Spooky of story of Nancy Drew trying to solve the mystery of a haunted bridge, and then gets involved with jewel thieves.

    Nancy Drew is the first series I developed an addiction to. Through Nancy Drew, I realized that determination, intelligence, loyalty and most of all, curiosity can make great things. Nancy Drew changed my childhood in ways I cannot even describe or fathom. It has been life when I was a child. This book opened me to the world of books and from then on, I never want to leave it. The joy I feel whenever I pick a book and read, I owe it all to Nancy Drew.

    Amazingly, I don't think there was a kidnapping in this one! The ghost writers known as "Carolyn Keene" must have started getting creative by this one (book #15) as there were some characters and plot distractions and twists in this one that "suggested" the story was going to lead one way, then in the end it turned out to be something else. In fact, the whole Haunted Bridge (which is the name of the book) turned out to be a silly side story.

    I've been reading a bunch of Nancy Drew books, and this is the first one I've had mixed feelings about. Even the title doesn't really comport with the adventure. There is no "haunted" bridge-- early in the book the "ghost" is revealed to be nothing more than an old scarecrow and that detail has little import in the rest of the book. After crossing the dilapidated "haunted" bridge Nancy finds an old brass box full of jewels and that ties her into a jewel thievery case of her father's.

After crossing the dilapidated "haunted" bridge Nancy finds an old brass box full of jewels and that ties her into a jewel thievery case of her father's. Meanwhile Nancy is golfing in a tournament and is persistently annoyed by an obnoxious braggard. She also comes into contact with a young woman whose nearby home burned down and it turns out is tied into the stash of jewels and thievery ring. The actual jewel mystery is a good one, but I found the several chapters of golfing that have nothing to do with the story to be a worthless and annoying distraction. Parts of the story have not aged well also. Nancy loses a golf ball signed by an evidently once well known golfer who is unknown to me, and there are several references to the old-time "Social Register" that would puzzle any young readers today. This book is also a modernized version of a much older and longer story and in some places it seems like the editing and modernization missed some things. I actually am intrigued enough that I want to find a copy of the original book of The Haunted Bridge which I suspect will be a much better story than this edition. All in all two words describe this book-- unfocused and uneven-- and its the first Nancy book I have read that I wasn't completely satisfied with.

Before they arrived he told Nancy he might need her help with the case he was working on. His case is about a gang of jewel thieves that sell the jewels that they steal. Nancy was playing golf on the course next to the hotel when her ball flew into the forest nearby. Her caddy Chris refused to get it. He said the place was haunted by a ghost. This got Nancy investigating. She decided to go exploring with her friends. She wanted to sneak up on the ghost, but when she tried she figured out the ghost is just a very old scarecrow guarding a bridge. Later in the book, they figure out who put up the scarecrow. The person who put up the scarecrow was connected to her father's mystery. I enjoyed reading this book. It's a very quick read. I recommend it to anyone who likes a good mystery.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I enjoyed this book. I Didn’t get bored, but excitement was extremely lacking. The haunted bridge doesn’t even have a ghost, it’s a scarecrow. The cover picture makes it look like the mystery revolves around the bridge, but it doesn’t. One of the first things Nancy finds out is the ghost is fake. The mystery itself was decent, but still I would recommend to anyone going through the original series.

    "Gee Nancy, that's swell!" It was on my shelf so I decided to see if Nancy Drew still held the same allure as an adult as she did when I was a kid. She did! A fun and easy read, but what was interesting was the level of vocabulary compared to children's books today; the vocabulary was much more advanced and educated. Sad. Ned is still a dufus though.

    Is there anything that Nancy can't do? Even after spraining her hand, she manages to bring down a ring of jewel thieves, reunite star-crossed lovers and even win a golf tournament. Can I be her when I grow up?

    Pretty good addition to the Nancy Drew series. Mystery was interesting though the spooky element was short-lived and explained at the beginning of the book. I found the golf play confusing but otherwise it was a fun story.

    A solid entry in the series, but the two most interesting aspects (a possible forger and a mountain lion) were only peripheral to the mystery. The reader barely sees the villains and an interrupted romance only slows down the plot. Find it. Read it.

This was one of my more favorite Nancy Drew stories that I have read so far. It was a lot more exciting and did not contain the very typical Nancy Drew gets kidnapped at some point plot. My one problem with it, which shows the date that it was written, is there was a point where Nancy is approached by a man and the attention is unwanted. She and her friends say “No, I won’t tell anyone. No one will believe us.” Like, UGH. It just reminds you what was so wrong with society back then. Overall, I did really enjoy the story (even though the golfing aspect was kind of dry) and will obviously keep reading Nancy Drew.

    Escapism during covid Nancy drew books are all delightfully convenient, it’s impressive how often Nancy seems to literally stumble on to some lost item that hasn’t been seen for years in just about every novel. But I have to admit, they have been great nostalgic candy for quarantining at home these days.

This super annoying jackass named Mortimer Bartescue, who seems pretty neckbeard-y, decides that going out with Nancy is his #1 goal in life, and Nancy wouldn't mind just casually setting him on fire (metaphorically, not in actuality. Kind of). He's constantly asking her out, flattering her, bragging about how awesome he is. Then Ned calls and Nancy's like YES PLEASE VISIT PLEASE. The mystery: a haunted bridge near the golf course, which Nancy quickly finds is "haunted" by a white scarecrow. The other mystery: Carson is helping some federal agents track jewel thieves. Nancy helps him out some, and discovers a brass jewelry case buried in the mud near the haunted bridge. The case belonged to Margaret Judson, whose house burned down nearby, and the feds think maybe she was involved because a lady jewel thief had a jeweled case like Margaret has. But Nancy meets Margaret, who is a pale tragic orphan with a broken heart, and is like naaaaaaah, she seems cool. Of course Margaret was tricked by the mean lady jewel thief and is being kind of blackmailed, ish. Ned visits! He brings two friends (who aren't Burt and Dave) and ends up playing nurse to Margaret's wounded former groundskeeper for a while. Nancy reunites Margaret with her former fiance, Morton, whom she left because mean lady jewel thief had accused Margaret of theft, and Margaret was like NOOOOOO MY FIANCE WILL NEVER MARRY ME IF HE THINKS I AM A THIEF. Which he didn't, but whatev. Cute Nancy/Ned moment: Ned is 1000% excited about a dance at the hotel, and while he and Nancy dress up for it, they work on solving her case instead of going to the dance, and Ned is so super sweet about it, telling her he wants to hang out with her and he had a lot of fun. She tells him they'll have plenty of time for dancing back in River Heights, and he's like hell yes. In the meantime, Nancy sprains her wrist BECAUSE THAT JACKASS STALKING HER GETS TOO CLOSE TO HER OUT ON THE PATIO AND SHE'S BACKING AWAY TRYING TO AVOID POSSIBLE SEXUAL ASSAULT WHEN SHE FALLS BACKWARD AND SPRAINS HER WRIST. (I wish Ned had been nearby to punch him in the throat.) Nancy plays through the pain in the tournament and fucking WINS, of course, because she always does. She gets a silver loving cup and is 1000% more interested in her mystery. Also, while poor Nancy's wrist is sprained, Bess tosses a book at her (thinking she'll catch it) and it hits Nancy's wrist. Bess is like OH FUCK and Nancy's like "nvm it's fine," while inside she's like HOLY FUCK THIS HURTS. So that was ridiculous.

    Okay I really liked this one. Mostly because I could relate to Nancy Drew. Nancy is visiting a beach resort with her father and friends (Bess and George). Mr. Drew is hunting down members of an international smuggling ring and asks his daughter for her help. While she helps her father, Nancy comes across her own mystery. A haunted bridge.

Is there really a ghost, or is it something else? Besides all the sleuthing Nancy does, she also enters a golf tournament with an injured hand. As if this girl isn’t busy enough? All the golf stuff was boring. It all went over my head. What do I know about golf? Well, Tiger Woods played and when you win the Master’s you get a green blazer. That’s it. I’m very knowledgeable, I know. Seriously though, I don’t care for the sport. At all. How about a mystery involving baseball? I love baseball. And I’m sure Nancy is proficient in that sport as well. Now, how in the world could I relate to Nancy Drew when she was playing golf and solving mysteries? Easy. Any girl will understand. Let me explain. I mentioned that Nancy injured her hand. How? By trying to avoid the advances of a guy.  At the resort, Nancy meets Martin Bartescue. This guy, is a real creep. He is very boastful, regaling Nancy with such crazy stories which she decides sound like complete falsehoods. She tries to avoid him, yet he always manages to find her. She brushes him off and he still doesn’t give up. He doesn’t seem to fathom that she is not interested in him. One day while they are at a dance, he begins to tell her how special she is. *Insert eye roll here* She backs away from him and falls off a terrace onto a flower bed, twisting her back and injuring her hand. All because she was trying to get away from some stupid, clueless guy.  Unfortunately, I had a Martin Bartescue. Who hasn’t? So I really felt for this girl when Bartescue interacted with her. She’s not interested, please leave her alone. And then at the end, when he tells her he was trying to match wits with her all along? Ugh. Could you be even more annoying? Go away.  Anyway, that’s it. I know I went off on a rant there. The story was interesting. And Nancy wasn’t kidnapped which is always a plus.

    Nancy Drew does it again. I love the Nancy Drew books; to me they bring back memories of childhood and tradition. I could hardly put this book down! I just had to know what Nancy was doing, and what she would do next! When I was reading this book, I read a lot of it in bed before I went to sleep. I would plan on only reading a little bit, but then I'd start and want to read one more chapter, and then one more, just one more, and before I knew it, it was nearly midnight!

I really liked this particular Nancy Drew, because it had an interesting story line, and it was fast pace. Even when things weren't necessarily exciting, they were always moving, so the book never got boring. Authors of book series like these always amaze me because they will write like 70 books, and every one is good and has a different idea behind it. There imagination amazes me! This book was #15 which seems like a lot, but there are even more, and they're all wonderful. It was interesting to me in this case that the actual title mystery "The Haunted Bridge" was solved really quickly. In the first couple of chapters they had it all figured out, but the book continued for a long time after that, and little details kept drawing it back to the bridge, which I guess was responsible for starting the whole thing. This book kept my attention, and was excellently written. I actually read the entire thing from cover to cover (which is saying something, cause I don't do that with just any book... haha). There is nothing I could really name off the top of my head that I would change about this book... I like it exactly how it is. Well, I guess that's all I have to say. I loved this Nancy Drew case, and I guess that now it's over, I'd better go find another to see what Nancy's up to!:)

Departing from the standard series formula, Nancy's adventures on the links play a near equal narrative driver with the underlying mystery of a supposed haunted, golf-ball stealing bridge.

Interestingly, none of those earlier books mention Carson Drew passing along his playing prowess to his sleuthin' daughter or even playing himself for that matter. How did Nancy get so good? Maybe a mystery for another installment?The mystery playing out at the golf resort plays out somewhat confusingly but with a nice narrative red herring thrown into the mix to keep it interesting. However, many of the standard elements of a Nancy Drew mystery are in place including Nancy's disregard to society's laws (but not the Rules of Golf) by stealing a box of jewels which she pries open with golf spikes. She masquerades as someone else and uses her feminine wiles to glean enough information to identify the ring of jewel thieves and brings Ned and the boys in to back her up when need be. So all the checkboxes get ticked. In short, a little better story in the series or at least one that breaks things up by adding in an underdog sports tale.

He follows Nancy around and butts into her life at odd moments. Something is definitely up with Mortimer! Along the way Ned and the boys show up and help take care of an old naturalist caretaker that gets injured who may have a serious clue in Nancy's hunt for Margaret Judson. Miss Judson ran away after her house burns down and may be tied to the jewel thieves. There is plenty going on here and it will keep you interested in finding out what's what. These books were very enjoyable to me when I was a pre-teen and I think they will delight today. I still enjoy them!
