I appreciate you people asking for reviews. However I buy the books for other people and for our school library- as I run the library:) So a lot of the books I don't read. (Would love to have the time to do it!!)
but many, many thanks for the good books you stock - our school kids love them!!
Bryce and Ashley Timberline are thirteen-year-old twins. They haven't lived in Colorado long, and they're still getting to know their new stepfather, Sam. When Sam takes them on a vacation to see the biggest gold nugget, it seems like a chance to get to know him better. But when the gold nugget is stolen and someone starts following them around, their nice vacation weekend turns into a deadly chase.
This was a fun read. The story was told from Bryce and Ashley's points of view. The chapters are short, no longer than three pages, so it feels like you're reading the book faster than you really are. The book had a huge cliffhanger that sort of came from out of nowhere that will make you want to go find the next book in the series. I read this to my kids and they both liked it a lot and demanded book two the moment I closed the book at the end. If you haven't read these, girl them a try.
Wow. That about sums up this read. I couldn't put this down once I started reading it. I was a bit nervous about reading it at first because of the title, but once I started I couldn't stop! The only objuection I have is the cliffhanging end. Sweet Book!!!!
I have read 1-8 of this series. I am 15, but I don't think the series is too young for me at all. It is very suspenseful, and really hard to put down. My brother and I got the fifth one first and after reading that decided we had to read the rest of the series. Now we have 1-9 and so far I think this was the best one, but they are all very good.
