Blue bells will be singing horses! This strange message, attached to the leg of a wounded homing pigeon, involves Nancy Drew in a dangerous mission. Somewhere an elderly woman is being held prisoner in a mansion, and  Nancy is determined to find and free her. Meanwhile, the young detective’s close friend, Helen, begs her to solve a second mystery. Helen’s grandparents, the Cornings, are frightened by a sinister wheel of blue fire that appears after dark in the woods outside their home at lonely Sylvan Lake. When Nancy discovers the significance of the eerie signal, she also learns that her two mysteries are connected.

Gotta love nancy drew. And for the person who said she was always described the same way and had no development, come on. These were written in the 50s. Of course she doesnt talk like us! Please try to be understanding. These are classics

Would you risk your life just to save a old lady you never met before? In the book "Password to Larkspur Lane" by Carolyne Keene, Nancy Drew, a pretty young detective risks her life to save a stranger, Mrs.Eldridge. In this adventure book, Nancy goes through tragedy and life and death matters. Nancy, a teenage, pretty, smart only child lives in River Heights. There, a lot of mysteries occur especially to Nancy since her father Carson Drew is a lawyer. One day, Nancy finds a hurt pigeon with a message on it, which leads her to a goal of finding and saving Mrs.Eldridge who got kidnapped by Thorne and Bell. During that time Helen Cornell, Nancy's friend asks Nancy for help. A mysterious blue light appears every night near her grandparents house, and Helen's grandparents are getting scared. Somehow, this mystery and the other mystery gets related. Overall, I loved this book. This book was full of suspense and mystery. I would recommend this book to adventure reader but not to who gets scare too easily. I wish the mysteries were more dangerous. Everyone, go and read this book NOW!!!

I love this book. I started the series a few years ago and this has been one of the best! Nancy is on yet another adventure and this one events fall into place! I loved this one because you could actually see the mystery in your mind and they explained everything easier. Only one confusing thing in the entire story!! I read a lot... and that is pretty good!

After winning an award for her larkspur (don't enter a contest against Nancy Drew- she always wins), Nancy ends up with a stray homing pigeon and a mysterious clue. As she is starting work on that mystery, she is asked to solve another mystery involving a strange light and a servant who suddenly isn't serving as he used to. Of course both these mysteries are connected, and Nancy uncovers a common group perpetuating both and holding old ladies hostage for money.
