An awesome Nancy Drew book that carries not only a mystery, but a very cool look into the past. Nancy, Bess and George are volunteering in this "living history museum" village where everything and everyone is basically reinacted the way it was in the 1830s. Of course, as usual, there is an ulterior motive in doing this: Weird things have been going on there lately, and a friend who works there thinks money is being stolen, so of course Nancy has to investigate. I don't think she anticipated fires, ghostly appearances by a "Lantern Lady", and eeiry warnings. But she takes them all in stride as usual, and hunts down clue after clue. The final revealation of the culprit definitely shocked me, and then, as usual, I went "wait a second, why didn't I see it earlier?" ( )

AT A HAUNTED HISTORIC VILLAGE, NANCY SEES THE GHOSTLY SIGNS OF FOUL PLAY

Nancy loves a good mystery. That's why she, Bess, and George are volunteering at Persimmon Woods Pioneer Village, a living history museum of the 1830s. Nancy's heard that a lot of weird things have been happening there, like the eerie sightings of the Lantern Lady -- the ghost of an original settler.

But as soon as Nancy starts investigating, she learns that even though the workers at Persimmon Woods are in costume, the danger isn't an act. Someone has concocted a cunning scheme to destroy the village, and if Nancy doesn't find the culprit, she could become history, too.
