I give three stars because "The Bungalow Mystery" doesn't have the tantalizing atmosphere of hidden rooms, artifacts, or codes. I get most excited about ancient buildings, ghosts, or something paranormal. However Mildred A. Wirt's writing stands well in our 2000s era. Truth be known, Carson was abnormally liberal with `in the trenches' legwork that his eighteen year-old handled... for 1930 or otherwise. I don't see my parents concurring that sneaking through a second-storey window to spy, is a good idea! Especially after being imprisoned beneath a trapdoor, they'd be wont to let me frequent a grocery store thereafter. Nancy is made of strong stock, to regard ordeals only as setbacks and to remain hungry to consider future cases!
If a few elements feel implausible, we can concede that fiction is entertainment like motion pictures. Oddly, the bungalow has almost nothing to do with the novel but plenty of action turns the pages. Thrill factor definitely replaces atmosphere in this volume III. From the first sentence, Nancy & Helen are in peril on a speedboat. I liked witnessing our protagonist with a friend other than Bess or George. The boating pair meet a younger teen, Laura, who mistrusts newly-appointed guardians. Different from stories in which Carson requests her input as a lawyer, Nancy & Helen's involvement and desire to help Laura makes sense.
Laura tells Nancy and Helen that her mother passed away a month ago and that she is now an orphan. Laura then finds out that she is to be cared for by the Aborns.
Upon Nancy and Helen meeting the Aborns they both develop an uneasy feeling about them. Later on when Nancy gets a phone call that was suddenly cut off it sets her on a adventure.
Nancy's father has asked her to help crack and swindling case. The case may involve Laura and her inheritance. Clue leads Nancy to the Aborns and when Laura runs away to Nancy's house she becomes even more suspicious of them.
This book was a good book to read. It had all kinds of excitement, and adventure. It had great interaction with the criminals as well.
Carefully plotted and deftly written, the "Bungalow Mystery" finds Nancy coming to the aid of a new friend who has rescued her during a storm on the lake near her summer camp. There is the trademark Carolyn Keene blend of exciting situations and Nancy's remarkable resourcefulness. I recommend all the Nancy
Drew yarns to the girls of my piano studio. Wholesome and winsome, Nancy has aged well, and continues to delight young readers.
