thecraftyhomeAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5June 27, 2014thecraftyhomeAge: 25-34Gender: femaleHaunted Waters is the first book in the Red Rock Mysteries series by Jerry B. Jenkins and Chris Fabry. It is a children's mystery for 8-12 years old. The main characters are 13 year old twins whose father has recently died and they are getting used to life in a new state with a new step-dad. When there new step-dad takes them on a vacation up to see a piece of gold from the gold rush and relax at a beautiful cabin, they end up getting in the middle of quite the heist and struggle for their lives.
This book is perfect for this age range, especially boys. Lots of adventure to keep kids interested. It is also written with one chapter being from the boy twin's perspective and then one from the girl twin's perspective. I think this helps make it appeal to both genders and is a fabulous idea. I highly recommend this book and can't wait to share it with my son. I love finding new series that I can trust for him to read and enjoy.

Even though this book was written for ages 8-12, it kept my interest. Twins Ashley and Bryce go on an adventure with their stepdad. They get more than just an adventure. Jerry Jenkins is a very talented writer. I've loved every book I've read by him. I would recommend this book to all preteens that love adventure and a little mystery.
eb7bibliophileHigh Desert WestAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Fun Story, Lots of ActionJune 10, 2014eb7bibliophileHigh Desert WestAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I think these two are excellent authors. I enjoyed the story and the characters. The humor was gentle and the dialogue was polite, just the way I like it. It was an exciting adventure, albeit a touch frightening with the life-threatening scenarios. I would have had nightmares for life if I went through those, and I'm considerably older than 13. The authors have great imagination. I gave it four stars because of the cliffhanger ending, forcing the reader to buy the next book to conclude it. I prefer a book that is complete in itself. That said, this is a great series for young people, and people like me who enjoy a quick and easy read once in awhile.
RuthSophia3 Stars Out Of 53.5 starsJune 10, 2014RuthSophiaQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3The dual narrative is a neat feature, but it causes really short chapters. The narrative itself isn't bad. The story isn't wrapped up neatly with this book, though, you need to keep reading in the series (I assume, I've only read this first book) for some details to be concluded. There is definitely a cliff hanger at the end of the book that will probably floor kids, but about which adults will likely be able to take some decent guesses. Overall, I recommend.
