My good friend Susan Marlow writes wonderful books for kids. Her newest book in her Andrea Carter series just released and she's the focus of my blog today. Take a look at her web site, her book summary and her book trailer. I have the trailer posted on the right hand side of my blog, so you don't even have to hunt for it. If you know any grade school or junior high kids who love horses and enjoy reading, this series is perfect for them.
Cory pulled his horse to a stop and narrowed his eyes. “All right. Tell me this—how in tarnation did Mr. T. J. Silver know this was your ranch?”
The question caught Andi off guard. She stared at Cory and tried to remember what she’d said to T. J. . . . Had she come right out and said he was on the Circle C? She shook her head. No. It hadn’t come up. So how…?
Andrea Carter usually has no problem finding trouble. In Andrea Carter and the Family Secret, trouble comes looking for her—and her carefree ranch life is shattered.
Who is the half-dead man Andi and her friends find lying in the creek? Who is the travel-weary young woman with three unruly children who suddenly show up at the ranch? Why has Andi never been told the secret her whole family has carefully kept hidden from her?
Angry and hurt at being left out, Andi saddles up Taffy and sets out to find some answers—answers that turn her world upside down. How far must Andi go to rescue those she loves and whose lives depend on her protection?
Susan K. Marlow, like Andi, sometimes finds herself in bizarre situations—usually while trying to help others. Susan is a freelance editor, teacher, and homeschooling mom. She and her family make their home in Washington State.
