But suddenly the brass ring is gone, and without it the contest will be ruined. Nancy is on the case, but her head is swirling with too many clues. Can she solve this carousel mystery before it spins out of control?

The Dollhouse Mystery

Is Nancy a dollhouse thief?

It’s volunteer week at Carl Sandburg Elementary School, and Nancy is very excited about her job. She will be walking Mrs. Rutledge’s dog, Baby. Mrs. Rutledge owns the biggest, fanciest house in River Heights. And she also owns the smallest one a beautiful antique dollhouse.

Nancy loves the tiny furniture and little windows of the dollhouse almost as much as she loves walking Baby. But one day, five pieces of doll furniture are missing, and Mrs. Rutledge thinks Nancy took them! But Nancy is a detective, not a thief…
right? This time Nancy must use her very best detective skills to get herself out of trouble!

The Lighthouse Mystery

This is one spooky spotlight! Nancy and her friends are on a fun filled trip to the coast of Maine. But when they find out that the historic town lighthouse might be haunted, the girls are spooked! And when they find mysterious clues that seem to lead them on a treasure hunt, Nancy knows she has a mystery on her hands. Who wrote the clues? And where could they lead? Maybe this lighthouse really is haunted like everyone thinks. One thing’s for sure it’s up to Nancy to shed some light on this case before they are all left in the dark!

The Snowman Surprise

Freeze! This is Nancy’s coldest mystery yet!

It’s winter break, and Nancy, George, and Bess can hardly wait for Sunday. That’s the day of the big snow festival in town. This year the girls are entering the snow sculpture contest. They already know what they are making, too: They are going to build swans from the ballet Swan Lake!

Nancy and her friends only have three days to make the most fantastic sculpture they can. But when someone begins wrecking their statues each night, the girls worry that they’ll never finish in time. Will Nancy and her friends put the freeze on this sneak in the snow, or will their chances of winning the competition melt away?

The Bunny-Hop Hoax

THIS IS ONE HARE-
RAISING MYSTERY!

Nancy’s friends are sad because the class hamster has gone missing. Poor Nibbles. But then Katie brings in a bunny named Bun Franklin to be the new class pet! Everyone is thrilled, and now they can began preparing for the Spring Fair.

But soon enough somone starts wrecking the class’s Spring Fair projects, and everyone thinks it must be Bun Franklin! Mrs. Reynolds is afraid he can’t stay. But Nancy is sure it’s not Bun — how can she prove it? It takes a lot of clue hunting and sleuthing for Nancy to realize that what she’s uncovered just may solve two mysteries at once!

The Singing Suspects

ROCK STAR REWARD? OR ROCK STAR REGRET? There’s nothing better than tickets to an Eric Stanley concert at least that’s what Nancy, George, and Bess think. That’s why they enter the River Heights Singing Contest! First prize is a set of front row seats to Eric’s next show! Nancy and her friends practice hard for their performance and pick the perfect name for their gropu The Spy Girlz. For a final touch, Riley McArthur even lets them borrow a pair of sunglasses that once belonged to Eric Stanley himself! But when the glasses go missing, the Spy Girlz might be out of the competition without even singing a note. This is one mega mystery that only a rock star detective has a chance of cracking.

The Apple Bandit

Vanishing Fruit? No Way! Nancy and her friends are off on an apple picking adventure! They are headed to the Kids Apple Festival, where they will pick apples, go on a hayride, and work their way through a cornstalk maze. Bess is excited about the applesauce eating contest after all, apples are her favorite food! And the winner gets a whole basket of River Heights Reds a brand new type of apple! But when the basket and all the apples in it vanishes, Nancy knows she has to get to the core of this mystery. Can she figure out who the bad apple is, or is this festival on the verge of an apple emergency?

The Kitten Caper

For a class project Nancy and her friends must interview a neighbor with an interesting hobby. So they pick Terry Smith, who takes stray cats and kittens into her barn and finds them new homes. The girls have fun visiting with the cats, and Bess falls in love with two kittens, Cottonball and Coco. But when Bess’s new furry friends go missing, she is devastated. Nancy must discover who let these cats out of the bag before Bess’s heart is broken!

New Lives, New Loves

Beginning her first semester at a coed dorm at Wilder University, Nancy Drew finds adventure in a series of dorm thefts, a handsome pre med student, and her changing relationship with Ned.

On Her Own

Nancy’s breaking the story…
and it’s sure to break some hearts. Life at Wilder University is proving to be full of surprises and scandals. Bess is beginning to think that Brian Daglian is different from all the guys she’s gone out with before…
and she’s about to find out why. And George has been asked out by the most popular guy around quarterback Scooter Berenson only to end up the most hated person on campus! Nancy, meanwhile, has signed on with Wilder Times, the university paper, and she may soon break a story about Scooter that could leave him in disgrace or even in danger. But first she must deal with Ned, who’s coming up for the weekend. And the way she’s feeling about her new life, his visit could mark the biggest break of all.

Don’t Look Back

Interviewing a teen television star who has enrolled at Wilder University, Nancy Drew learns that the young actress is fearing for her life, and Bess is reluctant to share an ugly truth about a guy on campus.

False Friends

Sometimes getting what you want isn’t all it’s cracked up to be…
In training for the upcoming 10K race, George is working up a heavy sweat, determined to do well and ensure qualification for the track and field team. But at times winning can be deceiving, and Nancy’s beginning to wonder if her promotion at Wilder Times is on the up and up…
or if Jake’s been pulling strings. Speaking of deception, what’s the deal with REACH? Dawn Steiger has already joined the group, which promises to work for peace and understanding, but Nancy suspects REACH has a different goal and she’s out to get the story. Bess, meanwhile, wants to know Paul Cody’s story: Is he for real…
or just another guy out for a good time?

Party Weekend

Volunteering to help run a weekly charity event that features music, dancing, and games, Nancy is called upon to prevent Charley Stern from ruining the evening with his antics, and then Nancy must find the thief who has stolen the first night’s proceeds.

Otherwise Engaged

Running WWST’s news hour, Nancy must overcome the impossible ego of Michael Giannelli, who believes he is the one in charge of the campus television station.’

In the Spotlight

Nancy’s co host on the campus cable TV show is driving her crazy. Michael is ambitious, stubborn, and so competitive. A bit like Nancy Drew? Maybe there’s more going on between her and Michael than either cares to admit. Crazier things have happened.

Without a Trace

Hi, I’m Nancy Drew, and I’ve got a case to crack. Actually make that two cases. First a gorgeous Faberg egg has been stolen. Who would have the heart to snatch such a precious family heirloom from someone new to town? Some housewarming that is!

And if this isn’t enough to keep me busy, someone’s running through gardens and stomping on all the zucchinis. Needless to say, it’s a big mess in more ways than one. Especially for Mr. Safer, who is suspected of squishing the squash. I’m pretty sure Mr. Safer’s innocent. But who’s the real vegetable vandal?

A Race Against Time

If I’m in the game, I play to win. So as captain of my team in the River Heights Biking for Bucks charity road race, my goals are to bring my team over the finish line first and to catch a thief along the way! See, all of the money we raised before the race has been stolen and I know I can find it. With two days, practically no clues, and a bike race to win, I’ve got my work cut out for me. But with Bess, George, and Ned on my team, what could stand between us and the gold?

False Notes

I’m always up for a good mystery, but when the big question is what I should get Dad for his birthday, I don’t have a clue! And then another mystery comes my way one that involves Heather Simmons, a leading candidate in the upcoming election for mayor of River Heights. My friends and I are pretty sure that her daughter Leslie, musician extraordinaire, has been kidnapped. But the thing is, nobody is saying a word about it! It’s hard to crack a case like this when no one will even admit that one exists. But I won’t let a little thing like that stop me when I smell trouble…
.

High Risk

It looks like Evaline Waters, a River Heights resident, is knee deep in trouble. A huge corporation is suing her for her land; they want to tear down her house and put up a warehouse. And documentation of the zoning law that would protect Evaline’s right to keep her land is missing. Figures! I’ve got to find that document, but it’s hard to focus on the land when I’m cruising at ten thousand feet. See, Ned and I are taking flying lessons, him with Colonel Lang, a friend of his family, and me with Frank Beltrano, an instructor at our local airport. It’s a good thing I’m good at juggling more than two balls at once. Too bad I’m not the only one.

Lights, Camera…

Nancy becomes involved in a big River Heights crime both on screen and off. When a movie producer comes to shoot a re enactment of the heist that gave the town its name, he meets Nancy and thinks she’s perfect for the part of Esther, sister of the thieving Rackham boys! Nancy accepts, the cameras start rolling and the trouble starts. People on the set get food poisoning. A crucial generator breaks. And to top it off, a lion who’s meant to star in the movie breaks out of his cage and lunges straight towards Nancy! Can Nancy sniff out the suspect before the lion sniffs her out or worse?

Action!

So I agreed to play the part of Esther Rackham in a film about the heist that gave River Heights its name, and there was all this trouble on the set, and I figured out who was behind it. Case closed, right?

Wrong!

Once the camera starts rolling, a huge fire breaks out on the set, setting back production again. We’re running out of time and funds. At least the fire turns up a key clue about who started it, but I’ll have to continue juggling acting and sleuthing. Because it might be up to me to save this film from going up in flames…
.

The Stolen Relic

My friends and I knew before we got to Arches National Park that it’s full of red cliffs arches, and rock formations plenty of places for hiking, biking, and getting lost. It’s a good thing there are park rangers and guides to help tourist like us find our way. Or at east that’s what we thought, until of the guilds left for a second to investigate some noise, and never came back. It seems unlikely that a respected tour guide who knows the area like the back of her hand could just get lose. Something’s fishy. And you can bet I’m going to get to the bottom of this before I find my way home.

The Scarlet Macaw Scandal

Bess, George, and I volunteered to go to Costa Rica for some R&R: rest and research. See, Corcovado Ecologica, a popular resort and preserve, isn’t only a beautiful getaway; it’s also a great place to study three species of monkeys. Or so we thought. When we arrived on the scene, we found the place in a shambles, and the monkeys were few and far between. And if the problem gets worse, the resort’s going to be in trouble. Clearly my friends and I won’t have much time for ‘monkeying around’ on this trip we’ve got a case to crack! Catch my next case: Secret of the Spa

Stop the Clock

Just as I’m gearing up to help plan the Mahoney Library’s seventy fifth anniversary celebration, the beautiful old clock, the very centerpiece of the library, is stolen. There’s nothing like a good theft to stop a party!

Naturally, I throw down the streamers and get to work. Turns out lots of people wanted that clock and what’s inside. If I don’t hustle, this might become two crimes instead of one…
.

Secret of the Spa

When I scored tickets to the grand opening of a new spa in town, I knew I had to take Bess. George came along, too, but she’s been acting so weird. I knew this wouldn’t be her idea of a total blast, but she’s just been no fun at all. It’s unlike her to be such a grouch!

But then, this new spa isn’t turning out to be much fun, either. Deirdre’s here, for starters. And someone’s tampering with the food, and trying to take the ‘luxury’ out of this otherwise luxurious place. Something stinks in this spa, and if I can’t sniff it out, my name’s not Nancy…
.

Uncivil Acts

A Civil War reenactment should be fun, right? Not in our town! It feels like war fever’s taken over. The tension started to build when we all chose sides. Confederate and Union sympathizers never did mix. And if that wasn’t enough to heat things up, someone started to secretly dig large holes in the battlefield. Pretty odd and very suspicious. Is someone waging a little war of their own, and trying to cheat? And if so, the bigger question is why?

Riverboat Ruse

How about a seat at a mystery dinner on a riverboat? Yes, please! I jumped at the invitation to go along with Bess, George, and George’s mom, who was hired to cater the dinner. It’s all fun until there’s an actual theft, and there’s nothing like a good crime to stop a party. Since I’ve got the magnifying glass, it’s up to me to catch ‘sticky fingers’ before this dinner’s sunk.

Trade Wind Danger

San Francisco has tons to offer tourists like Bess, George, and me. Fresh crabs, cable cars, hikes and stalkers! Well, maybe stalkers! is a little harsh, but this older couple, Ed and Harriet, keeps popping up everywhere.

Coincidental or not, Ed and Harriet’s appearances are smelling fishier than San Francisco Bay to me. So the investigation begins. But who knew it’d lead to more sleuthing in Hawaii?

Bad Times, Big Crimes

So I was sitting with Ned in a lecture, and then bam, Ned’s in a three piece suit, and I’m in a city hall meeting on how to get through the beginning of the Great Depression. As in the Depression, in the 1930s. What’s more, there’s a thief to track down. Someone’s robbing local banks of what little money they have. Everyone’s panicked about their money, so the thief could be just about anyone. But after spending just a little time in this odd place, I have a hunch there’s more to it…
Bad Times, Big Crimes

Framed

A prince is in River Heights. A prince! Granted, he’s from a relatively minor royal family, but still. This is big news.

The headlines get even bigger once the prince is found toting a painting for his family’s good friend Mrs. Mahoney because within hours of his arrival, the federal authorities arrest him. They suspect he stole the painting from his family.

Dad and I aren’t buying it. We have a hunch there’s more to this ahem picture. But can we save the prince before he’s wrongfully crowned ‘criminal’?

Dangerous Plays

Dad, Bess, and I are all set for London when Ned’s Shakespeare professor asks us to do a simple favor: to take a look at his townhouse while we’re there, since he can’t seem to locate the housekeeper and fears something’s wrong. Sounds easy enough, so I take the key.

Eager to cross the favor off our list, we stop by 53 Banbury Square shortly after we land. And let’s just say things in the townhouse aren’t quite tip top. And the key? Well, it unlocks a Pandora’s box of serious trouble.

En Garde

If I told you I was worried about George’s health because she’s taken up fencing, you’s laugh. Foils today are totally safe, and the gear is padded besides. Right?

Well, if so, why did I see blood at George’s first meet? Skewering isn’t in the legal fencing repertoire but it soon becomes apparent to me that someone’s too fired up to care…

Pit of Vipers

There’s been a snake napping at the River Heights Zoo, and all clues about the thief seem to point in my good friend Charlie’s direction. But why would Charlie want to steal a snake? I’m not convinced he’s the perpetrator, but with all the circumstantial evidence that keeps popping up, the cops are on the other side of the fence. Speaking of snakes, George’s younger brother, Scott, has been slithering around a lot lately, all sneaky like. He’s not acting like himself, but his lips are sealed about what’s wrong. Do these mysteries have anything to do with each other? Stick around. I’m about to find out!

The Orchid Thief

Bess, George, and I are heading down to Key Largo, Florida, to enjoy some fun in the sun with my old friend, marine biologist Delia Duke. But it seems that Delia’s state park is clouded over with mystery: Someone has been poaching the park’s rare butterfly orchids. Their future depends on us!

George seems more interested in searching for treasure in the Catalina, an old sunken Spanish galleon, than in hunting for an orchid thief. My hope is that George, Bess, Delia, and I can save two priceless treasures in one fell swoop.

Close Encounters

When George, Bess and I headed to Brody’s Junction, Vermont, to help George’s cousin with her caf ‘s website and enjoy a brief vacation, we were looking forward to some downtime not to landing in the middle of a media circus.

Hundreds of tourists have invaded the town to watch purported UFO sightings. Odder still are reports of townspeople being abducted, and the strange clues that seem to point to little green men as the culprits. All this speculation has the town going wild, and I hope to have a close encounter with some hard facts before things spin entirely out of control…
.

Dressed to Steal

I don’t normally care about clothes, but when my friend Charlie Adams’s sister Alicia opened a boutique right here in River Heights, of course I wanted to be at the opening.

Turns out it was a pretty popular event. Way more people than expected showed up, and then the store window was smashed, and people were injured! Later I found out that Alicia’s most expensive dress was destroyed and her store had been vandalized.

Sounds like more than one day sale damage to me. I may not be a fashion expert, but this is one case I’m ready to size up.

Troubled Waters

When heavy rains washed out the low lying towns around River Heights, my friends and I knew we had to help. That’s when we hooked up with Helping Homes to build apartments. Then the two time state champion basketball team, the Lowell University Bullets, showed up and the waters, so to speak, turned murky.

While George couldn’t be happier about working close to J. C. Valdez, the Bullets’ star forward, not everyone around us is a fan. Take the person who is destroying our work and spray painting threats to J. C. on the walls, for starters. Is this the product of some basketball feud, or something much larger? I may be up to my elbows in sheet rock, but that won’t slow my sleuthing…
.

Murder on the Set

To my friend Bess, the major Hollywood production coming to River Heights is her chance for fame as an extra. To me it’s a chance to get involved in a big mystery. Looks like the drama on this set really kicks up when the camera’s not rolling.

Since Chief McGinnis wanted to hire a ‘professional’ in other words, not me to look into the problems that have been plaguing this production, I’ll be working undercover as a stand-in. I have no idea who this detective will be, and fortunately, I’m not in this for the credit. But I am determined to crack this case faster than any professional can say ‘Cut!’

Trails of Treachery

My friend George is competing in a grueling three day mountain bike race in Costa Rica, and her cousin Bess and I will be there as her support team. But when I find out someone’s taking dangerous steps to make sure top U.S. cyclist Derek Woodhall doesn’t win, I realize George may not be the only rider I need to help. Could last year’s winner be the culprit? He was freaking out when Derek took an early lead. Or maybe Derek’s publicist? She seems a little too psyched about the press her client’s misfortune is generating. I’ve got a lot on my plate, and not much time to sort it all out. But I know how to keep my eye on the prize. Whoever the culprit is, they picked the wrong race to sabotage!

Fishing for Clues

Something fishy is going on in River heights and this time I really mean it! First a burglar breaks into the Nickersons’ home and snatches Ned’s digital camera, and then a few days later his laptop is stolen. Ned is super bummed there’s no replacing the hilarious photos he snapped of his dad falling out of the boat on their fishing trip. I have a hunch this is more than a run of bad luck and I’m determined to reel in the crook hook, line, and sinker.

Intruder!

When George’s mom asks Bess, George, and me to help her cater a benefit for the library, we’re all on board. The event is a Jane Austen themed party, and George even agrees to wear a dress for the occasion. It seems like the party isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. The bed and breakfast where the event is being held has been plagued by vandalism. Someone is breaking teapots, making a mess, booby trapping the staircase, and generally terrorizing the old couple that runs the place. No one can figure out how the mysterious intruder is getting in and out of the house and that’s where I come in. I plan on solving this faster than I can get to the bottom of a cup of Darjeeling.

Mardi Gras Masquerade

What could be more fun than a masked Mardi Gras ball at a so called haunted mansion? George brings her digital camera, insisting that she’s going to bust some ghosts. I’m just looking forward to a night of dressing up and dancing with Ned and my friends.

Soon the fun turns freaking, though things go haywire and everyone starts to wonder if the ghost stories could actually be true. But when Deirdre Shannon’s antique tiara is snatched, I’m certain the crook is a guest, not a ghoul.

The Stolen Bones

I’m hunting for something other than clues for a change: dinosaur bones! Bess, George, and I travel out to the desert to join a paleontology dig. The other volunteers are a pretty quirky bunch, but we’re all having a great time…
until an important find goes missing. It turns out fossils can be worth millions. I’m making no bones about it the thief is going down.

Identity Revealed

Identity Revealed

My online sleuthing has led my friends and me down the Internet rabbit hole. After joining BetterLife, an online community, to try to stop a case of cyberbullying from the inside, the bullies turned on me. And now I’m close to revealing their true identities in real, off line life.

All the clues I’ve found have pointed me in one direction, but is it a false trail? Before I can expose the madmen behind the mayhem, I need to be absolutely sure that they’re the ones wreaking havoc all over BetterLife. But how can I be sure when nothing on the Internet is as it seems? Catching this crook might be more difficult than even I anticipated!

Where’s Nancy?

Where’s Nancy??

Nancy was going to tell you about this big mystery, but she disappeared. Poof. Just like that.

So now Bess, Ned, and me, George, have the Case of the Missing Detective on our hands. We’ve got to find Nancy!

Let me tell you, this sleuthing thing is no joke. We’ve worked with Nancy on lots of cases, but we’ve never had to do it ourselves and the stakes have never been so high. We think this might have to do with that possible museum theft Nancy was talking about we’re just not sure yet. But we’re woking on it.

Wish us luck!

Once Upon a Crime

Once Upon a Crime, in a faraway land know as River Heights…
Hi, it’s me, Nancy Drew. I thought meeting my hero, mystery writer Hazel Perrault, would be a dream come true. As soon as I found out she was joining forces with a local charity to build a community center for wayward teen girls, I knew I wanted to help. But instead of building and decorating, I’m, stuck doing all the cooking and cleaning for all the other volunteers! Yuck! Worse yet, I have a hunch that someone is trying to sabotage the project and the big fund raising gala at the end of it. My fairy tale adventure is turning into a nightmare, and if I can’t solve this mystery, I’m not sure any of us will be able to live happily ever after…

Real Fake

When Bess and George dared me to try out for the new reality TV show Mystery Solved!, I never thought I’d actually get picked. But the next thing I knew, I was off to Paris for the shoot.

I was all set for a fun filled adventure in the City of Lights…
until I started getting creepy e mails from a strange address. It looks like the real mystery is going on behind the scenes.

The other contestants are so eager to win, I wonder how far they’re willing to go. There’s Chen, a video game designer and master hacker; Tyler, a businessman who will do anything to make a buck; Wendy, an aspiring actress who seems smarter than she’s letting on; and that’s only the beginning.

I just hope I can separate fact from fiction and avoid these obnoxious cameras long enough to figure out what’s up.

And it looks like the Clue Crew won’t have to wait very long to get a glimpse of Buttons he keeps escaping from his pen and showing up all over town! He’s getting pretty famous for eating the flowers in everyone’s front lawns. As much as Nancy secretly wishes Buttons would turn up on her lawn, she knows it’s important to make sure he stays put. The only trouble is, no one knows how he’s getting out. Sounds like it’s time for the Clue Crew to saddle up and settle this pony problem!
