Rock Harbor Search and Rescue

Finally a series of great novels for middle school age teens! Colleen Coble has been a favorite author of mine since reading the first of many books that followed and now, just in time she and author Robin Caroll have teamed together to bring you the first in a series of novels designed for young adults. Rock Harbor Search and Rescue begins the new series and is a great mystery for those of you that love untangling the clues to solve the crime.

In this case, eighth-grader Emily O'Reilly is saving up for a Search-and-Rescue puppy of her very own after being involved with working with Charley, her stepmom Naomi's canine. Her parents have asked her to pay for half of the expenses as a way to show teach Emily the responsibility that comes with being partnered with her own Search and Rescue dog. She has it all figured out too. She loves making her own jewelry and hopes during the weekend of the town's fall festival that she be able to make the money no problem.

When a fellow jewelry artist asks Emily to watch her booth while she takes a short break, Emily is more than happy to help. After all she has been creating her own jewelry after Mrs. Dancer's more expensive jewelry creations only hers aren't half as fancy or nice. She ends up selling a few of her pieces before she returns only to discover that her most valued piece of jewelry the Sapphire Beauty necklace is now missing and Emily's cheap imitation is in it's place instead. No matter how much Emily assures Mrs. Dancer that she didn't take it, all the signs seem to point to Emily. Even those closest to her including her Dad begin to wonder if perhaps her real mother's criminal past hasn't come full circle with Emily. Is it possible that she is like her mother after all? She needed the money to pay for the dog she's always wanted, would she be willing to steal for it?

To find out the answers to these questions and more, you'll have to pick up a copy of Rock Harbor Search and Rescue by Colleen Coble and Robin Caroll at your favorite book retailer. I received this novel compliments of Thomas Nelson Publishers for my honest review and received no monetary compensation for a favorable one. This is just the beginning of an exciting new series of novels geared perfectly for those middle schoolers that are looking for a bit of fun, adventure and mystery to go along with their novels. I rate this one a 4.5 out of 5 stars and can't wait for the next novel due out in the fall of this year.
