Search & Rescue
Rock Harbor Search & Rescue
Emily is an eight grader who enjoys making jewelry and going on rescues with her step-mom and her dog, Charley. The rescue missions start when someone is lost and a scent dog is needed to find them. Emily hopes to sell enough jewelry to pay for her very own search dog.
But before she can get the money she is accused of stealing a very expensive piece of jewelry from another seller. Her parents don't believe her and it's soon obvious that only her closest friend is willing to help her find the real thief.
This book is a children's book that appears to be written in conjunction with the adult series, Rock Harbor. Because I haven't read anything from this series, I was left a bit lost several times in the book. The author makes the assumption that the book will be read by readers of the adult series. My only other complaint would be the portrayal of the dad. I felt very frustrated, even as an adult, at the way he handled the theft with his daughter. But these two things aside, I did enjoy the book. It was full of mystery, boys, faith, and family. I would definitely recommend this to young readers.
I received this book free of charge from Thomas Nelson and The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.
