Nancy Drew #146 Lantern Lady, #147 Captured Queen, and #148 Trail of Trouble
Page 131 has a mistake. "As George limped out to the car, Nancy was happy to see that his bandaged ankle was definitely better." Strangely, George has become a male.
Even though the plot returns to sabotage, this one is a bit different and is very interesting. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
Inexplicably, Nancy's nemesis from the Nancy Drew Files series, Brenda Carlton, appears in this book. This makes me think that this book was originally intended to be a title in the Nancy Drew Files series, because Brenda's presence makes no sense.
The culprit is kind of obvious, yet Nancy never suspects this person until the very end of the book.
The plot of this book is very similar to #96 The Case of the Photo Finish as well as a few other books.
I enjoyed The Case of the Captured Queen.
This book bored me. I really tried to read it and gave up partway through the book. I then read #149, The Clue of the Gold Doubloons, which I enjoyed. I wondered what was wrong with me that I couldn't get into On the Trail of Trouble, so I tried again. I was still completely bored and uninterested. I again wondered what was wrong. This book doesn't have the usual exciting events and stunning cliffhangers.
