    1. It's been 10 years since I last read this and this time around I'm afraid I'm going to have to retract a star. And it's not because of the plot, which is fantastic: a missing girl, family for Jim, the return of the evil Jonesy, and other great secondary characters like Mrs. Vanderpoel and Spider Webster, all the Bob-Whites together, a thrilling cliffside rescue. It's a great idea that was very poorly executed. At times, I wanted to throw the book across the room, and I usually only get that feel [...]

    2. I know I no longer fit the target demographic for these books, but even back when I was seven and reading them, I'm *sure* the solution to the mystery in this one would have been blatantly obvious to me from very early on.That said, it's quite a fun one.

    3. I like Trixie books best when they take place in good old Sleepyside. Trixie's farm, Crabapple Farm, reminds me a lot of where I grew up so I have a preference for the Bob-Whites staying in Sleepyside.In the Missing Heiress, Jim Frayne (an orphan adopted by the Wheelers) finds out that he does have some family lefta cousin on his mother's side. Ecstatic to have a living relative, Jim and the gang open their arms to Juliannay to find she is not a very nice person and not one the Bob-Whites can fu [...]

    4. (3.8)This is almost a mystery, yet it felt that even Trixie was along for the ride instead of solving the mystery, but it's acknowledged in the story so it gets slightly redeemed.I did like how there's a lot of secondary characters that show back up so it gives the setting of Sleepyside more depth.Recommended 10+ for scary situations.

    5. Closer to 3.5 stars. I like Trixie and the rest of the Bob-Whites of the Glen, but Trixie's constant jumping to conclusions and leaps in logic frustrate me and test my ability to suspend my disbelief, which is sad considering that the premise of the mystery is pretty good.

    6. a HUGE and most dedicated fan of Trixie and her crew. This is odd, of course, because they were MEANT for teen and pre-teen girls, but I was a young boy that read everything he could get his hands on and when I first stumbled on my first TRIXIE BELDON book I was instantly hooked! I immediately sat about reading them all, as quickly as I could get my greedy little paws on them. Trixie is the star, or "lead" character, followed by Jim and Honey (who quickly became the love of my young life, I had [...]

    7. A childhood favorite re-visited.Is the story as good as I remember? – YesWhat ages would I recommend it too? – Twelve and up.Length? – Most of a day’s read.Characters? – Memorable, several characters.Setting? – Real world, pre - computer, pre - cell phone. (Interesting note - the manor house is now air conditioned).Written approximately? – 1964?Does the story leave questions in the readers mind? – Ready to read more.Any issues the author (or a more recent publisher) should cover? [...]

    8. Re-reading my Trixies after many years and reading some of the reviews here, I guess I'm not as critical of the mystery with these books. What I remember about them is not so much the plot at all but the friendships and camaraderie of the Bob-Whites. And there's plenty of that in this addition to the series, with not one but two parties- 1 at Crabapple Farm, 1 at Mrs Vanderpoel's. Trixie admits to herself that Jim is someone extra special to her. And there are several instances of interaction be [...]

    9. For Christmas one year, my parents grabbed me the entire Trixie Belden set and I couldn't put them down. After I finished with them, they continued to purchase them as quickly as I could read them. Even with a learning disability, I devoured the books. I look back now and I find that Trixie Belden was much more age related to young girls, particularly to me, reading the books than Nancy Drew. There was something in these books that I found to be a greater escape than I did ND, too. I found that [...]

    10. This kid's mystery finds Trixie Belden trying to help a young woman with amnesia find out who she really is. This is the first time I've reread a book in this favorite series in years. I loved spending time with the characters, but I have always found this plot a little weak.Read my full review at Carstairs Considers.

    11. In this Trixie Belden Book, Jim discovers he has a cousin named Juliana who is set to inherit a large piece of swamp land in Sleepyside. Juliana arrives in Sleepyside to wait on the confirmation of her identity so she can inherit the money from selling the land. Another arrival in Sleepyside is Janie, a young woman involved in a hit and run who is left with amnesia. The Belden family invites Janie to stay with them while they try to discover her identity and who seems to be out to get her.

    12. 10/17/10: I finally got this book. They stopped printing them after number 15, and the libraries around me didn't own the old ones. My mom was finally able to get some of them from another library in Illinois. I love Trixie Belden so much!! The mysteries are always good. I love reading about the adventures she and the Bob-Whites get into. *If anyone has some they would like to lend me, I will gladly accept them : )

    13. I did not go into this book with high expectations, but I loved it! It's the best Trixie Belden book I've read in awhile. I think the author really captured the spirit of the Julie Campbell books, so I almost felt like I was reading them again. :) The actual mystery/plot was very predictable and easy to figure out, but I enjoyed the writing style a lot. Four stars out of five!

    14. Not the best book in the series but I'm glad to see that a few loose ends from earlier books have been wrapped up, I did think the book was a little less of a childrens book when it came to the mystery because (view spoiler)[attempted murder (hide spoiler)] isn't normally the order of business in Trixe books (unless of course Trixie herself gets into trouble!)

    15. I've just started this and I'm certain I've read it before, but not for a long timeI had definitely read it before, but I'm not sure I owned it. Fair to middling Trixie.Re-read May 2011.Re-read January 2014. Lots of people impersonating other people around Sleepyside. And whoever wrote this one really overdid the use of the exclamation "Gol".

    16. I ate UP Trixie Belden when I was a little girl! (But I never got into Nancy Drew Seems like Trixie was younger and more of a tomboy, so I must've identified with her more.) I lost all my books somewhere along the way, but I bought the five vintage books I own now at an antique sale in the mall.

    17. One of my favorites and back to one of the good writers. I think this one must have been the one have written books 7-9, as it has the same tone, feel. Classic Trixie, no calling her "princess" ~ ugh! Back to the great endings that the good books do. Really good one!

    18. This is up there with the best of the series. I love "Janie." My favorites are usually set at Crabapple Farm.Mrs. Vanderpoel is so cool and laid back for a gal of her generation; and reminds me of a couple of my great-aunts.

    19. This is the very first Trixie I ever owned/read. Nostalgia aside, I think this one has one of the more well-constructed plots, as well as the value-added character we actually care about.

    20. Another good light mystery nothing extra special about this one, but certainly a worthy part of the series.Sept 2013 good read, again.

    21. Lots of great elements but doesn't really reach its potential. Still fun to revisit a childhood favourite.

    22. I still love them, I still read them, and I still collect them. This book is one of my favorites from the series.
