More About the Author

Carolyn Keene and Franklin W. Dixon are the pseudonyms under which many ghostwriters penned the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys series, respectively. Both series were created by Edward Stratemeyer, founder of the Stratemeyer Syndicate book packaging firm, in the late 1920s and early 1930s.

Stratemeyer's daughter, Harriet, and syndicate writer Mildred Wirt Benson were the two people primarily responsible for bringing the iconic character of Nancy Drew to life in the minds and hearts of millions of readers around the world.

This was a great mystery (one of the more complicated ones) where nancy and bess find themselves in New york for Christmas where the Stumble on to Frank and Joe Hardy. It is an older book and contains part of Nancy and Franks "almost romance" (which is my total weakspot) i would definitely recomend this book. It is one of the best.

I love nancy drew and hardy boys supermysteries. that's the only time i read them now cause i love it when they're 2-gether!!This book is the absolute best one!!!
I swear Ned and Callie hold nancy and Frank back. And you know when he started to say something what it was!!! But i love that Jean-Claude is a prince!!! He seemed sooooooooo awesome.
Back to nancy and frank I totally agree with those who think that they should hook up!! I mean they never bring Callie with them so i mean COME ON!!!! Bring on the romance!!! (between nancy and frank that is, ned doesn't deserve her he'd rather study than be with her.)
I also love Bess she's a lot like me but then again i guess i am a mix of george and bess a shopping girl but tomboy in one.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In this book Frank and Joe Hardy invite Nancy Drew and her trustey companion, Bess Marvin to help find a couple of wanted jewel theifs. In the book Bess falls head over heals for a young man who the group later finds out is the prince who will be signing the countrys treatey. Joe is jelous of Bess's new found boyfriend. It turns out that the prince's superviser is behind the prince's kidnapping. Well actually the prince pays some goons to pretend that they are kidnapping him once or twice or so. The prince can get away from his body gaurds with no trouble. For all those Nancy/Frank fans this book has some romantic moments. Frank almost tells Nancy how he feels about her. It turns out the jewel theifs are a girl Joe gets a little crush on and her father. Nancy tricks the groups kidnapper into thinking she has trigered a bomb that could blow any second. This book is so enjoyable, I read this book about 25 to 50 times. I can read this in 1 hour but thats why I was nick named Book Worm. I sugest you read this book and then you decide if you liked reading it or not. Happy Reading....

Nancy Drew, and fellow teen detectives, the Hardy boys, Frank and Joe, are in New York to catch a couple of cat burglars, who they're sure are about to try to steal the crown jewels of Sarconne from a museum. Meanwhile, Bess, Nancy's best friend who has tagged along on the trip to New York to do some holiday shopping, is hanging out with John, a man she met who she feels is her absolute dream date. John is taking her to all types of luxurious places around Manhattan, including being held up at their Park Avenue hotel. Now Nancy, Frank, and Joe are trapped in a royal disaster, thanks to a blow up at a U.N. dinner.
This is one of my favorite Nancy Drew mystery. The descriptions of the sights that Nancy, Bess, Frank, and Joe see are exquisite, and the adventure is delightful. Children and teens will enjoy reading this novel around the Christmas holidays.

I really loved this book! I am a fan of Nancy Drew, and I really like it when she works with Frank and Joe Hardy. The book was really puzzling! I love the way it turned corners! The only thing I didn't find in this one, or in any of the others, is that Nancy and Frank date. I mean Ned doesn't mean that much to her. And Callie doesn't mean that much to Frank. Nancy saw Frank's eyes at the rink in her little daydream, not Ned's. I hope one of the writers will write a book, when Nancy and Frank do get together, on a case, and personaly.

Sigh. Romance is wonderful, isn't it? Especially since I think Nancy Drew and Frank Hardy were made for each other! I've read 'em all, and I kinda like this one, although it could use a little bit more romance. It's got an interesting plot.[Especially since I love chocolate! I only wish I had a crown made of chocolate! Hold the plastic explosives, please.]

I recently reread this book.It was a wonderful book, very interesting. It had some Frank/Nancy romance for anyone who is rooting for them to get together. I would have given this book 5 stars except that I knew who was behind trying to kidnap the prince a long time before anyone in the book did.
