GlennHaggertyMinneapolis, MN5 Stars Out Of 5Love this bookNovember 6, 2013GlennHaggertyMinneapolis, MNQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Thirteen-year-old twins Ashley and Bryce Timberline's mother remarries and the family relocates from the Midwest to Colorado. Attempting to integrate their blended family, stepfather, Sam, takes Ashley and Bryce to a remote mountain cabin get away where a mysterious intruder stalks the twins. After Sam scares the man off, they discover a priceless gold nugget was stolen from the museum they'd visited earlier in the day, and they surmise a connection. But what does the stalker want? The man returns and after a harrowing fight and flight scene, leaves the family for dead after ramming their vehicle into a frigid lake where it sinks with all onboard. How will they escape?
The authors artfully weave a strong spiritual thread with real life middle school applications into this high action page turning suspense.
J ONYAge: 35-44Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5good but...November 3, 2013J ONYAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3This story was obviously written with the entire series already in mind. Sequels will build on this one. My 11 yo son enjoyed the book and couldn't wait for the next one. As an adult, I read the first few books and found the writing rather uneven, the stories a bit formulaic and far-fetched, but they are a harmless and engaging read with some faith-based lessons thrown in. I wouldn"t discourage my son from reading them, but will probably try to borrow them, not sure we want to spend money on the whole series.

Jill WilliamsonOregonAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5My kids loved it (9 and 11-year olds)May 29, 2013Jill WilliamsonOregonAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Bryce 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.
