Nancy Drew Diary #9 The Clue at Black Creek Farm

   Here’s the synopsis and info for The Clue at Black Creek Farm, the ninth volume of the Nancy Drew Diary series. 🙂 It will be available the 12th of May, 2015 and is 208 pages. I think the title and the mystery sounds intriguing. The plot seems deeper and more detailed than the previous books in the Diary series and hopefully it will have the necessary-but-sometimes-missing elements for mysteries such as danger, action, and excitement. 😎 Btw, murder isn’t a necessity for a good mystery. I look forward to Nancy, Bess, and George solving the case and helping those in need. 😎 Also looking forward to seeing the cover, too! 🙂

Healthy eating becomes a hazard when a local farm is sabotaged in this ninth book of the Nancy Drew Diaries.

Nancy, Bess, and George are thinking about joining Black Creek Farm CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Sam and Abby Heyworth run both Black Creek’s organic farm and the CSA, a program where people pay to receive fresh fruits and vegetables throughout the growing season. Buyers get local produce at a reasonable price; the farmers get money to run their farm. Everybody wins!

But during a fundraising dinner showcasing the farm’s produce, several people become seriously ill, and tests reveal that the fruits and vegetables are contaminated with deadly E. coli bacteria. Sam swears his produce is clean: E. coli doesn’t magically appear in vegetables—it has to be transferred by animals or contaminated equipment. And after the Heyworth’s greenhouse is trashed and their chickens are killed by an intruder, Nancy thinks all signs point to sabotage.

Nancy, Bess, and George are on the case. But who would try to ruin a farm? And why?

You can find out in paperback, hardcover, or ebook, from a bookstore, ebookseller, or library when it’s available in May. 🙂

Nancy Drew Diaries 9 The Clue at Black Creek Farm by Carolyn Keene


    This next item doesn’t have anything to do with the book but, it is a mystery. I’m having a terrible time signing in to my email account – as in it’s not happening. I don’t know what the deal is, but I signed in no problem yesterday, late afternoon. Then later I used the same computer, etc., entered my info to sign in and all and it wouldn’t open. Grrrr! 🙄 It gives me a nonsensical (suspicious because nothing is different in signing in 🙄 ) message and won’t proceed. I tried several times, even re-started the computer, but same thing. 😦 Anyway, really thankful this blog is working. 😎

   On a much better note, I’ll hopefully get another chapter posted this week of Hardys Inn Danger. Plus, I also want to start the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew trivia page I’ve been putting together and add to the Hardy and Drew character page very soon. 🙂

  1. I agree with what you said in the top of this post, Ann. 🙂 The synopsis indicates some intelligent effort at a real mystery; I would appreciate that very much. This Diary series has been an utter disappointment to me thus far. 😦 I would welcome an opportunity to read a good mystery within this series; hopefully book #9 will be the start of something relevant to Nancy Drew books. 🙂

    Email services can be very aggravating at times. 🙄

    Sounds good, Ann!! 🙂 Callie

    • Awesome. It should be good. 🙂

      I have some suspicions on what might have happened. The situation is still unchanged.

      Thank you Callie. 🙂

  2. The ND Diary sounds interesting. 8) More chapters for Hardys Inn Danger, please! 😀
    Oh, and bummer about the email. 😦
    Two thumbs up for the blog working! 🙂

  3. Hey Ann, I really hope you are not facing any kind of problem now. No trouble should last this long!

    And, to everyone who is reading this… Love, Peace, Joy.. a very Happy New Year! May you have a wonderful 2015! 🙂

    • As far as the email, still haven’t gotten into it since the day before I posted about it. And I don’t know for sure what happened, but I have a few suspicions. As far as why I haven’t been on here much, yeah, quite a few things going on and yes, some of them would definitely qualify as horrible, including one that did drag on for months. 😦 It would have been great if it hadn’t. Through it all though, we’ve never been alone and our prayers are always heard. 🙂 And I’m very, very thankful for that and so many blessings that are present every day. The good always trumps the bad and it’s important to focus on the good things, as Lily often says. 🙂

      Thanks, Ritu, I hope 2015 will be awesome for you. 🙂

Please leave a reply - that would be awesome! :)
