Book Review: Thick as Thieves

Thick as Thieves
An Andrea Carter Book
Susan K. Marlow

Fourteen-year-old Andrea Carter would rather ride her beloved palomino, Taffy than do anything else. But life on the Circle C ranch in 1882 is busy. Between school and chores, Andi is left with little time to prepare for Taffy's first foaling. Then when the event finally arrives, it nearly ends in disaster. 

Returning to school keeps Andi hard-pressed to find time for foal training. And she now has a new problem on her hands - Macy Walker, who has been assigned as Andi's seat mate. The new girl's crude manners and cruel behavior brings storm clouds into Andi's life, as does the news that cattle rustlers have moved into the valley.

When the cattle rustlers turn to stealing horses and strike the Carter ranch, Andi's only hope for recovering her precious colts lies with Macy. Can Andi trust this wild girl? Does she have a choice?

Susan K. Marlow is always on the lookout for a new story, whether she's writing books, teaching writing workshops or sharing what she's learned as a homecoming mom. The author of the Circle C Adventures and the Circle C Beginnings, Susan enjoys relaxing on her fourteen-acre homestead in the great state of Washington. 

My Thoughts: I'm always up for a good historical book, especially western styles so of course I was excited to read Thick as Thieves. I love that there is a strong female lead, and a friendship as the main part of the book instead of the normal romance. As a young adult novel I think this is one of my favorites. If you like Branded Outlaw or Cruel Harvest this is a book for you .
