Publisher's Description

Watch out! The Timberline twins are on the loose. Bryce and Ashley are ATV-riding tweens from Colorado who unearth action-packed mystery and adventure wherever they go. From clearing the name of a local miscreant to thwarting a gold-stealing heist, the twins' growing faith and the strong example of their parents guide them through even the most life-threatening situations. With the trademark page-turner style used by Jerry Jenkins and Chris Fabry in the Left Behind: The Kids series, these fast-paced books will keep even reluctant readers on the edge of their seats. Readers will definitely get hooked by the unbelievable cliff-hanger at the end of book one, Haunted Waters. Perfect for ages 8-12.

Publisher's Weekly

Jenkins (the Left Behind series) and Fabry (the Left Behind: The Kids series) temporarily leave behind their previous projects for this action-packed series for middle-graders. Thirteen-year-old twins Bryce and Ashley are starting to take to their new life in Colorado as part of their blended family, which now includes stepfather Sam and a teenage stepsister. After all, who wouldn't want to ride ATV's to school instead of the bus? Ashley and Bryce have typical teen concerns, too: grappling with bullies at school and struggling with when to share your Christian beliefs with friends (and the stand it may force one to take). But on a weekend adventure with Sam to a nearby Gold Rush-era exhibit, things get out of control in a hurry. The Timberline clan is inadvertently drawn into a burglary scheme that has them warding off a stalker and fighting for their lives. Jenkins and Fabry know their way around a suspenseful tale, and readers will enjoy taking the roller-coaster ride with this realistic family. Ashley's occasional discussions of her Christian faith are not center stage, but still an essential, believable part of her character, allowing readers an open door to ponder their own beliefs while enjoying a good yarn. Ages 8-12. (May) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    I tried this book when looking for fiction for my twins who are 9. The fact that these kids are also twins appealed to me, not to mention the fact that the series is written by Jerry B. Jenkins, the author of the Left Behind books. I just couldn't get into this story, though, and can't imagine my kids would, either (they're more into funny characters and books that involve animals). Perhaps other children would like the series, but we enjoyed Left Behind: The Kids, Winnie, the Horse Whisperer, and TJ and the Time Stumblers much more and recommend them, instead. However, try the book yourself--or at least read the first couple chapters before you take my word for it. I give it 3 stars because there's nothing exactly wrong with it; just not up our alley but nothing exceptional enough to redeem it.

    Intriguing christian mystery for kids. Teaches kids about what it means to be a Christian and how to properly live in God's eyes. Good for older kids who won't be scared by some of the action in the book.

    Haunted Waters is the first book in the Red Rock Mystery series and it introduces you to the main characters Ashley and Bryce who are twins. Their step-father took the kids for a little trip up the mountain but they get more then they bargained for after they visit a museum containing a gold nugget. The twins take turns narrating each chapter in the book. This is an excellent mystery book for kids/pre-teens.

    Haunted Waters is the first book in the Red Rock Mystery series and I found it to be a nice mystery that should appeal to any young reader. In this book, readers are introduced to the main characters: twins Bryce and Ashley who have had some rough times in their 13 years. Their father was killed in a plane crash, their mother remarried and they must get used to having an older step-sister and step-father. To make things a little harder on them, they move to a new place (Colorado), go to a new school, and encounter a bully who keeps trying to take away their 4-wheelers. Their step-father, wanting to get to know them better and bond with them more, takes them on a special trip. While on this trip, a museum gets robbed, an innocent person is blamed, and the twins follow the clues to solve the case. In some ways, this book reminded me of the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boy mysteries however, I found these characters to be more real. The twins are going through many of the same issues that kids today go through such as a blended family and moving to a new place and going to a new school. I also liked how the author uses Christian principles in the book that will teach his readers that God understands the hardships kids go through but no matter what is going on in their lives, He cares and can be trusted. I recommend this book to any young reader who loves a good mystery book.

    Adventure, excitement and danger seemed to follow Ashley and Bryce Timberline wherever they go. First, their dad died in a mysterious accident. Then they moved to Colorado with their mom and baby brother so they could start their lives over. It was in Colorado that their mom met and fell in love with Sam (Bryce and Ashley call him The Cowboy), who has a daughter age 16. Ashley and her twin are 13. Their baby brother is only four.

    Being in a blended family was tough for a teen. So one weekend, Sam suggested a cabin in the mountains adventure with just the four of them--the twins, Dylan and Sam--while their mom stayed home to finish a book she was writing. They had skiing, sledding and tubing to look forward to, satellite hook-up in the cabin and their own pinball machine. To top that off, they were going to view a large gold nugget on display nearby and a replica of a mine shaft where gold was found. That's when all the adventures began.

    Haunted Waters is told in the first person with chapters alternating between Bryce's point of view and Ashley's point of view. Their adventure includes thieves, suspicious people who follow them, break-ins, and eventually high speed chases and a life threatening accident. But in the conclusion, the reader is left in suspense when the twins discover a secret about their stepdad.

    This book is perfect for middle grade readers. Ashley and Bryce face relevant situations that other pre-teens and teens would understand, such as bullies at school, and enjoy great laughs at the witty exchange between the twins.

    I especially liked how the book's high interest level but lower reading level makes it appealing to a wide age range. This is a book and series I would want my own children to read. The adventures are fun, the language and attitudes of the characters are clean, while the young people and adults are not perfect or unrealistically "too good to be true." Since Ashley, Bryce and their mom are Christians, they live their faith out through their daily lives rather than preach about it. They may falter from time to time, but they learn and grow through their experiences.

    I am reading and reviewing this book for the Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. summer reading program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255: Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.
