Marlow in her new book, The Last Ride Book Three in the Circle C Milestones series published by Kregel Publications gives us a new adventure with Andrea Carter.
From the back cover: Andis newest adventure may be more than she can handleeven with her familys help
Andrea Carter is turning sweet 16 and life could not be better. Shes about to finish school, her sister Melinda is getting married, and her older brother Justin has a new baby to spoil. There will be plenty of time to work with the colt of her treasured Palomino horse, Taffy, and best of all, Andi will finally get to work full-time for the ranch she loves.
There s just one problem: a city-slicker cousin named Daniel. Left there by his father, with a cryptic warning that New York City life has done damage to the young man s character, Daniel wants nothing to do with the ranch. He ignores Andis lessons, walks away from responsibility, wrecks valuable equipment, and even runs away to San Francisco.
The Carter family is in a frenzy trying to keep Daniel under control. When Andi discovers a horrifying secret about him, he forces her to stay silent. But all that changes when Daniels actions put lives in danger. Andis anger over her loss threatens to destroy not only Andi but her entire Circle C world. Can anyone break through the wall around Andi s bitter heart and help her find healing?
Andi is growing up. School is almost finished, she is going to be sixteen and she is being given fresh responsibilities. The only problem seems to be her cousin, Daniel. It seems he is not really a ranch type of person, he really is a New Yorker. Now that we have the ingredients it is time to mix them all together and get a rush of a story. I think Susan K. Marlow is an extremely talented writer who really knows how to tell a story that will grab you and keep you flipping pages. Ms. Marlow has given us some amazing, well-written characters that will certainly hold your interest. The focus of this book Ms. Marlow has given us a story about forgiveness and letting go of resentment. The Last Ride is a very exciting book that will keep you engrossed with Andi and her family as you root for them to succeed. I am so looking forward to the next book in this series.

Jill StanishMidwestAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Wholesome Book for Teen GirlsMarch 21, 2016Jill StanishMidwestAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The third book in the Circle C Milestones, The Last Ride, finds Andrea Carter on the brink of turning 16 and still loving everything about ranch life. And then comes the news that Aunt Rebecca (stiff, fussy, domineering Aunt Rebecca) is coming to visit accompanied by Andrea's cousin Daniel who will be spending time on the ranch (his parent's last ditch effort after reform school didn't reform him!).
Not only does Andrea have to put up with her aunt's constant criticism over her dress, speech and manners, but she also has to put up with a very saucy, rebellious cousin who doesn't know what it means to work. Somehow he's got his aunt wrapped around his finger for she can see no wrong in him.
It takes a few close calls and some damaged property to finally get the attention of Andi's older brothers. They don't tolerate laziness and Daniel begins to learn what it means to be treated like a hired hand. Then Andi stumbles across a very dangerous secret that Daniel has been keeping and she's too afraid to tell anyone. Will Andi's family finally send that scaliwag packing? Will Andi's aunt succeed in persuading her mother to send her to finishing school?
Andi learns once again that growing up and growing in the Lord are a lot tougher than she thought they'd be. Thankfully she has a loving, godly family surrounding her and helping her any way they can.
I loved that Andi got reunited with a buddy from the very first Circle C books (when she was only 6 years old!). That added another fun dimension to her adventures and learning. I love that there is a book for any level and that girls can grow up with Andi and benefit from the wisdom of her family. Check out the author's website for information about other books in the series as well as free study guides.
I highly recommend this wholesome series. Go grab books 1-3 and be ready for adventure 4 coming out November 2016!

MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Andi's Growing UpMarch 21, 2016MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5As the third book in this series open we find Andi anticipating the end of school, when she will graduate and also she will soon be turning sixteen. An old childhood friend has also returned to the Ranch, and he is all grown up, but this so called friend is about to take her promised job, training the colts.
From the title I cringed, and was so afraid of what was going to happen, and you will need the tissues in this one.
A cousin from the past arrives for an extended visit and Andi mother Elizabeth is hoping all will welcome him and help him with his problems. Good old Daniel is given to Andi as her job in place of the colts.
I enjoyed this book and loved the faith shown by this family and you are going to love how they pull together to help one of their own. Once this one is picked up you wont want to put it down.
I received this book through Kregel Blogger, and was not required to give a positive review.
bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great story for teen girlsMarch 20, 2016bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5What's a girl to do when her ornery (and mean) cousin from New York is sent to the Carter's ranch near the Sierras to turn his life around?
This episode of Andi's life is a hard one for her. Her cousin Daniel is an unprincipled young man. He's rowdy and disobedient to her brothers and cruel to her. He causes harm and endangers animals and people. And all the while Andi is supposed to be nice to him.
This is a real time of learning for fifteen year old Andi. How can she possibly love a cousin who is nothing but trouble? And how can she face a loss that breaks her heart?
This book might deal with some tougher issues than earlier ones. There is a serious nature to the novel and a little sadness. Andi has to learn some hard lessons about trusting God and her family. Sometimes forgiveness can be so painful and hard to do.
This is a great book for young teen girls, especially if they like horses and a setting of the 1880s. Parents should read it too as there would be much to discuss with their teens.
This is the third book in this series but reads very well on its own.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
