Book 6 of this series is my favorite. The story line did not play out at all like I thought it would, and I liked that because having read so many books... I usually guess where the story is going. This book was so well written, I did not see the story happening like it did. The moral of the story is one we don't see very often: tell the truth, even when it will cost you something.
My siblings (ages 10 & 13) also love these books. I'm their book previewer, and these books are great. I'm a harsh critic when it comes to books - especially adventure books. But these are awesome in every aspect. From the story line, to the characters, to the morals, these books are extremely well written. Many authors try to "tell" you about the character; Susan Marlow "shows" you their character. In fact, you feel like you know them.
These books aren't for girls only. My brother is 13 and has thoroughly enjoyed these books. Yes, the main character is a girl, but the series has a strong male presence in the form of her 3 brothers and her friend, Cory.

Trouble has no problem finding thirteen-year-old Andrea (Andi) Carter. Despite best intentions, her plans almost always get thwarted. In this sixth and final book of the Circle C Adventures series, Andrea Carter and the Price of Truth, Andi secretly plans to earn money herself so she can give her mother a very special birthday gift. But keeping those plans a secret from her family is easier said than done.
When Andi witnesses a crime and identifies one of the town's top citizens at the scene, she finds herself in a big mess! Will she make the sacrifice required of the price of truth?
The Circle C Adventures series is wholesome reading for the whole family.

Lovable impetuous Andi Carter rides her horse Taffy into another adventure. Will Andi be able to pay the Price of Truth? The sixth book in the Andi Carter is excellent. Susan Marlow has the gift of entertaining readers of all ages. Young readers especially will enjoy all six of the Andi Carter series.

We loved this book! It has good Christian morals. It has adventure and intrigue. Enough so that it is hard to put the book down. It tests Andi's Christian virtue between right and wrong. Andi turns to God to get answers but isn't overly done as to be preachy, which can be a turn off to some tweens and teens. But enough to for moral lessons. I really love this series of books for my girls (even my teen son likes them). Susan Marlow is a wonderful writer. I recommend these for daughters and granddaughters everywhere.

Thirteen-year-old Andi Carter wants to surprise her mother with the perfect birthday gift. But keeping her plans to earn money a secret from her family was very hard for her to do.Andi's brother's watched her so she would not get hurt as her Mother had gone to visit a relative. She and her Spanish friend Rose had even tried to pick peaches so Andi could make some money of her own. She had found a music box in town and wanted to buy it for her Mother's birthday. The brother's always got what ever they wanted to buy and just added her name onto the gift, but she wanted to buy something herself for her Mother.She got into all kind of trouble and got Rose to tag along with her, even as standing up to the bully in town. After she got caught by her oldest brother about picking the peaches she found herself a job at the store in town for an hour after school. She took a shortcut when she heard a puppy crying and really came upon something she should not have. How will she handle this new trouble?This book was sent to me by Kregel Publishing for review.

Thirteen year old Andi Carter has gotten into trouble again! This time all she wanted to do was buy her mother a birthday gift. Not something picked out by her older brothers, but something chosen personally by her and earned by her. Yet she cannot tell her brothers what she is up to, lest they stand in her way.Andi has almost earned the special present for her mother when she witnesses a crime being committed. Could one of the towns most respected citizens really be guilty? Could she have instead been mistaken? What Andi has witnessed will divide not only the town but her own familyand Andi is caught in the middle of it all. Should she tell the truth? Even if it divides her family? Even if her beloved Taffy is placed in danger?This suspenseful book is likely to be enjoyed by both boys and girls in the targeted 9-14 year old age range.This series would make also great read-alouds for school-aged children.Of interest to homeschoolers, this author publishes free downloadable study guides, and A Journey Through Learning also produces lapbook units in case you should decide to turn these books into a unit study. Recommended whole-heartedly. Disclosure: Kregel sent me a complimentary copy of this book for review. Opinions expressed represent my own.

There is one theme that sticks with all of Susan K. Marlows books, and you can see it right away in this sixth and last adventure, Andrea Carter and the Price of Truth: Andi and trouble are like peanut butter and jelly-always together. Her inability to avoid danger seems to be just part of her personality, but the manner by which she attracts trouble in Price of Truth will surprise any reader. Without precedent, a crime is committed in the shadows of a Fresno alley, and andi is the only one who saw what happened. This places her under tremendous pressure from lawyers, friends, and even family--pressure that is detrimental to everything Andi knows and loves and to Andi herself. Can she ever hold her chin up in Fresno again? Is there really hope to get her mothers birthday gift that started it all? Will her relationships survive this battering? Does God even know whats happening? This book had me on the proverbial edge of my seat the entire time I was reading it. It was irresistible; everything in it--plot line, twists, writing style, characters--pulled me into Fresno, California, of 1881 and would not let me go. Two favorites of mine were the fact that good morals, sadly lacking today, were so excellently presented in this book, and that the characters came alive in these pages. Its not every book that can so effortlessly put you into the shoes of its characters. Plus it was all so thorough: details that appeared in the beginning kept weaving in and out throughout the book only to tie up beautifully for a satisfying finish. Characters that seemed irrelevant turned out to play important roles, and multiple struggles piled up before being neatly resolved in the end. And what an end! Susan K. Marlow has outdone herself in this wonderful conclusion to the Circle C Adventures--a series in which all books are equally good, clean, refreshing reads. This masterpiece is a high recommendation to anyone, any age, anywhere!
