A New Favorite for Apple

I received a free copy of this book for the purpose of review as a Tommy Mommy. All opinions are my own.

Apple loves to read. Apple loves dogs. Apple loves a good mystery. Rock Harbor Search & Rescue gave her all 3! This book is based on the popular Rock Harbor series by Colleen Coble. She joined forces with Robin Carroll to churn out this exciting mystery for the 8-11 year old girl crowd.

Apple was enthralled with this book. I'm not sure she sat it down until it was completely finished. It even went with us in the car a few times! When I read the book I could quickly see why she was so captivated. The story line is intriguing and moves quickly. 

Emily is falsely accused of stealing a necklace during a craft fair. As Emily and her friend Olivia investigate to find the real culprit, Emily stays busy with family issues, her first crush, and assisting her stepmom with the search and rescue team. Will Emily find the thief? Will she get her own pup to train for search and rescue? Will she find solutions to her personal relationships?

Normally I steer Apple away from anything with boy/ girl relationships in it but this book was different. It wasn't pushing the crush idea. The crush was only mentioned a few times and in a way that really just went along with the story line. It dealt more with Emily's ability to talk with people and problem solve than it did with attraction. 

Apple has read so many books so quickly that we are always scrambling to find her something new to read. I hope Coble & Carroll will write more girls books soon.
