Adventure abounds on the Bonny Scot in Boston Harbor as Nancy Drew helps Captain Easterly uncover the mystery of his ghostly visitors. From the moment the clever young detective and her friends, Bess and George, take up residence on the old clipper ship they are confronted with fire, theft, and other dangerous situations.

If she is successful, it will help her lawyer father to trace the history of the Bonny Scot and establish a clear title to the ship for Captain Easterly.

    Great Read!

    This book is about a young girl by the name of Nancy Drew. In this book Nancy, her father, Bess, and George try to solve the mystery of the Wooden Lady. They are trying to solve the mystery because Captain Easterly, of the Bonny Scot was trying to discover who his ghostly visitors aboard his ship were. Throughout the story, the mystery evolves and leads to many heart pounding encounters. To find out more exciting events read The Secret of The Wooden Lady by Carolyn Keene. What I liked about this book was that it was very intricate, which helped me picture the situation. In addition, it kept me wanting to read more; I could hardly put it down. Overall, the book was good and there was nothing I disliked about it. I recommended this book if you like mysteries and enjoy books that they just cannot put down! This book is great for all ages! I recommend all the other Nancy Drew Mysteries. Overall, I rate this book a 4 out of 5 stars because it is a good mystery and well written.

    I recommend the Secret of the Wooden Lady!

    This was, in my opinion, the best Nancy Drew book I have read so far. The characters were realistic and the plot was well displayed. The suspects had me guessing for a while. It was also clear on what was going on, not vague. It has the reader laughing and smiling and gasping with fear and delight when Nancy gets into one of those suspensful predicaments until the very last page. You can't stop until you are done. And it is worth reading again.

    Very suspensful, and well-written!

    This book was very good. When you thought nothing else could go wrong, something else went wrong. When Nancy was on the ship by herself you thought she would get kidnapped, but then it turned out to be a good guy! his is one of Carolyn Keene's best Nancy Drew boks.
