Hello! I am posting the book review for Nancy Drew#6 The Secret of the Red Gate Farm.
Nancy, Bess and George encounter an odd French-Chinese perfume saleswoman, reluctant to sell a particular fragrance to Bess. On a return train trip to River Heights, they ponder her odd behavior and encounter the malnourished Joanna, on her way to the River heights to seek employment. Joanna becomes acquainted with the girls, and when Nancy accompanies her to a job interview, Nancy uncovers a mysterious code in the office. Joanna's grandmother, owner of Red Gate Farm, welcomes the trio and Joanna to her farm where they plan to vacation as paid boarders, and assist with waiting on other boarders. On the farm, Nancy uncovers a group called The Black Snake Colony -- a "nature cult" -- who are tenants on a portion of Mrs. Byrd's farm. Accused of passing counterfeit money, Nancy shares details of the odd colony and the codes obtained in the office building with Federal agents. Nancy, Bess, George, and Joanna go undercover disguised in the white robes and hoods worn by the cult members, and join them in their cave hideaway!
