    A few days ago I picked up the novella Stevie-Girl and the Phantom Pilot, when Ms. Swann offered it as a free read. I was immediately smitten by her writing style and the characters. Why hadn’t I picked up this book before? I found the late 1960s setting riveting. I was a bit too young to remember it well, but much of what she touched upon resonated with me. Most of all, I was blown away by a step back into childhood, including the enchantment and whimsy of those magical years.I was thrilled to learn this was a continuing series, skipped the middle book (though I fully intend to go go back and read it) and moved on to Stevie-Girl and the Phantom of Crybaby Bridge. Once again the author transported me to years of discovery and adventure. This time, Stevie and her best friend Jase accompany Jase’s parents on a camping trip that leads them to a mysterious bridge complete with the legend of a crying baby and a woman in white. The descriptions of the camping trip – from cookouts around the fire, to swimming in the lake, and trekking through the woods –are so vibrant it’s like experiencing them first hand. There’s fun, danger, adventure, and plenty of mystery. I love Ms. Swann’s ability to make me experience childhood all over again.As a kid I always had a fondness for Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys, stories of spooky houses, wandering ghosts and things-that-went-bump in the night -- without them being too terrifying. The Stevie-girl stories have that same feeling of mystery and wonder. You can’t help but be caught up in her life, and that of Jase. These two are perfect together, from friends to the flush of a first kiss, shared in this novel. I hope to see much more of them and their wonderful adventures. Ms. Swann has definitely made a new fan!

    I have a weakness for a good old-fashioned ghost story and I was happy to discover Swann’s Stevie-girl and the Phantom of Crybaby Bridge story. Stevie-girl and her best friend, Jase, are phantom magnets. This story takes place on a summer camping trip to New Mexico during the 1960s. Almost immediately, the two friends visit the legendary Crybaby Bridge and quickly the mystery begins.This books has charm, entertainment, heightened mystery, and of course a good ghost story. I really loved this book. It was reminiscent of some of my favorite Nancy Drew books growing up and I immediately loaded my Kindle with all of the books in the Phantom Series. The plot was well developed and it moved at a fast pace only giving the reader a moment or two to catch your breath. The storyline made you involved in the character’s life whether it was their previous experiences or what they had to face in the moment. Swann’s writing style is smooth and effortless, it makes a perfect read for teens as well as adults. I highly recommend for an afternoon or weekend ghost story read.

    By: Ann SwannPublished By: A.S.Age Recommended: Teen - AdultReviewed By: Arlena DeanRating: 5Series: Phantom #3Review:"Stevie-girl and the Phantom of Crybaby Bridge" by Ann Swann was the third in third Phantom series for this author. I did like the style that this author used in relating to the reader a 1960's setting. Be ready for adventure as we are taken to New Mexico on a camping trip with Stevie and her best friend, Jase. During this camping trip they will be lead to a strange looking bridge...which is 'complete with the legend of a crying baby and a woman in white.' This author will give the reader a rich story with great descriptions of this adventure...from cookouts, swimming, kissing and even 'trekking' in the woods. Be ready for lots of adventure, danger, fun and most of all the mystery (the ghost) of it all. You will have to pick up this good read to see just how this author presents it all to the reader. It will be a beautiful be ready for a good read.

    I feel like I've just been on a camping trip with two of my favorite characters of all time: Stevie-Girl and Jase, the "phantom magnets." Ms. Swann's details are so rich the reader can see the beauties of the mountains, the lake, and the creek, smell the campfire and the fish and the bait, taste the s'mores and the hot dogs, and feel those mosquitoes bite! This is more than a campout, or even a "best friends" story. The poignant depth of the characters is explored in just enough detail that one aches for them. I was worried this might be the last book in the series, but the ending hints at #4. I can't wait!

    Young love and a scary camp out.Stevie-girl does it again, at least her talented author did it again. This series is becoming a guilty pleasure. When I grow tired of reading about vampires and zombies, I can turn back time and enjoy a really good wholesome ghost story. Can a ghost story really be wholesome? You bet!It's 1971 and Stevie-girl is growing up. She joins Jase and his family on a camping trip, leaving West Texas and heading into the mountains of New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment. Stevie and Jase immediately check out the nearby bridge, where stories claim a ghost baby wails on certain nights. Of course, they immediately hear the ghost--you knew they would--and see a filmy lady dressed in white. This is a delightful story that explores memories of young love, jealousy, fear, and courage. Readers will remember tasting their first smores, or catching a fish and smelling it cook over an open campfire. Your heart will pound as Stevie I'm not going to tell you! You really must read this charming tale for yourself. Read it to your kids or simply enjoy your own guilty pleasure and escape back to a simpler time. I recommend this book to the young and nearly young readers.

    Stevie-Girl and the Phantom Of Crybaby Bridge is another extremely enjoyable ghost story by Ann Swan. This is the third book in the Phantom Series and I was to happy to hear that #4 is on the way! All of the books center around teenagers, Stevie and Jase, as they experience life growing up in the early 1970's Texas and ghosts needing assistance finding the great hereafter. In Phantom of Crybaby Bridge, Stevie and Jase are haunted by two ghosts while on a camping trip with Jase's parents - a young girl and a wailing mother. I really enjoyed how the two teens help piece together what happened more than 50 years ago. I can't tell you more without giving away any major plot points!As with the last book, I was reminded of my first kiss nearly 35 years ago and all the conflicting emotions that go along with it. I'm looking forward to reading and listening to many more books in this series and to see how Stevie and Jase grow up into young adults.I listened to the Audible version of this story narrated by Abby Elvidge, who did another outstanding job (she narrated the Phantom Student as well). She was very believable as teenagers and provided different voices for each of the characters - young and old. Bravo!

    ** I was given a free copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review **I love Stevie-Girl! and this was a Solid 4.5...I would have given it a 5, but I found a few parts kind of repetitive....and that was unnecessary...Plus there wasn't much of a ghost story....this is more of a growing up book for Stevie....but the story was still solid, and I loved that Stevie went camping with Jace and his was kind of a healing trip for them all...Yes there was a couple of ghosts, but this story is not as concentrated on them...and I loved how this is set up for a book 4, and that Jace and Stevie are getting closer to a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship...I think they will grow up, get married and live happily ever after!!! lol LOVELY LISTEN!!!!Thank You, Audiobookblast(dot)com

    If you've read the two previous Phantom books, you are in for a surprise in this one. Stevie and Jase are growing up, as you will see. But the ending is the real surprise...don't peek. Just enjoy getting there. Oh, and that scene in the tent...leave the lights on when you get to that one. Heh heh heh.
