From AudioFile

Nancy Drew fans will enjoy meeting old chums: tomboy Georgeand timid Bess; Nancy's supportive dad, Carson Drew; and of course,the clever sleuth, Nancy, herself. Added to the mix this time are anew friend whose grandmother is about to lose her farm,money-laundering thugs, and a mysterious cult. For those who canoverlook corny clichés, annoying adverbs, and stereotypicalcharacters, this book has a well-structured, suspenseful plot withlots of twists and turns and enough danger to keep young readersshivering. Background music, done to good effect, adds the feeling ofan old-fashioned radio drama. Reader Laura Linney seems made toorder. With an expressive, well-modulated voice, she keeps the pacelively and maintains just the right balance between narration anddramatization.

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 review concerns the original 1931 edition and the revised 1961 edition, which tells a story similar to the original, but it is shorter. While on a shopping trip, Nancy, Bess and George meet a young girl named Millie (Joanne in the revised edition) who lives at Red Gate Farm with her grandmother. Millie/Joanne and her grandmother may be forced to sell their farm because they don't have enough money, so they decide to take in boarders. Nancy, George and Bess go to the farm to spend some time with their new friend and she tells them about a weird nature cult that rents part of their land and performs strange rituals at night. Nancy; however, suspects that the cult is not quite what it seems. To find out if she is right you'll have to read the book. I really enjoyed this book. I found the mystery intriguing and the writing was very good (at least with the original edition, which was the one I read). I'd recommend reading the original edition, if possible, but either way, this is a very good story that fans of the series would enjoy.

Nancy Drew and the Mystery at the Red Gate Farm is a very good book. It all started when Nancy and her friends, Bess and George (who were cousins) were out shopping. They came to a perfume shop and Bess found a bottle of perfume she wanted. When she went to buy it, the clerk acted very strange and almost insisted that Bess shouldn't buy it. She bought it anyway and they continued their journey home. On the metro link, Nancy and the two cousins befriended a very nice girl. She was about their age and her name was Joanne. She lives on Red Gate Farm with her grandma, but they are planning to sell it soon. "Grams put an ad in the paper saying that we will allow boarders to come live with us, but no one answered it yet. I was out looking for a job today, but I haven't had much luck."
During the way home, Bess was opening up her perfume to show Joanne and the bottle slipped out of her hands. It spilt everywhere and got on Nancy. Later on, Nancy left to go to the bathroom. On her way, a mysterious looking man was staring at her and smelt her perfume. He asked her in a whisper, "Any word from the chief?" The man realized his mistake and walked away. Could this have been some kind of clue to a mystery?
The next morning Nancy drove Joanne to her interview. When they got there, a rude man confronted them. He told Joanne to go to another room and wait for him. Nancy sat in a chair in the front office where she saw the man writing and talking on the phone. When he went to Joanne, Nancy got up and wrote down what he had written. Joanne finished soon afterwards and they left.
Nancy called up Jo and told her that Bess, George, and she could come be their paying boarders at the farm so that Grams could get more money to keep the farm.

I have just read an enticing book, The Secret of Red Gate Farm by Carolyn Keene. This book is part of the Nancy Drew Mystery series. Nancy is an adventurous, fun-loving and determined girl. Wherever Nancy goes, a mystery seems to follow. In this book Nancy makes a new friend and helps here with a few problems. Nancy's new friends invited her to her grandmother's farm, kind of as a repayment since Nancy was so kind. At the farm they stumbled upon a counterfeiting ring, which amazed Nancy. Personally I thought this book was very exciting and accelerating. I really don't like mysteries ,but this one showed me they aren't so bad. So I recommend this book to people who really don't like mysteries ,like me. The descriptive words and accelerating actions made me like the book.

This was one of the most exciting Nancy Drew books. It all starts when Bess insists on buying mysterious perfume. From there her, Nancy, and George are plunged into a mysterious mix of codes, secret hideouts, and unscroupulous characters that results in the girls being held prisoners in a most unlikely place. The story results in Nancy cleverly helping the owner of Red Gate Farm and capturing her abductors.

I loved reading this book. It was very interesting and made me analyze all the characters to figure out who the counterfeiters were. I was amazed at the twists and turns of this mystery story. This book is about a group of people who make false money and try to pass it off as real money. Nancy, Bess, George, and Joan help uncover the group and stop the production of the fake money. There is a strong climax when Nancy and her friends are trapped in a cave and a caught. Basically, this was one of the best books I have read. I would strongly recommend it to anyone who wants to read a great mystery.
