Rock Harbor Search & Rescue

In Rock Harbor Search and Rescue, a middle grade fiction novel based on Colleen Coble’s bestselling Rock Harbor series for adults, kids will enjoy the mixture of pets, adventure, suspense, and a mystery.
Emily O’Reilly is obsessed with all things Search and Rescue. She volunteers with the team and goes on rescue missions with her stepmom. She is even selling homemade jewelry to save up for her own Search and Rescue puppy. But when an expensive necklace is stolen from a renowned jewelry artist at Rock Harbor’s fall festival and Emily is accused of the crime, it looks like she’ll never get her puppy and be able to join the Rock Harbor Search and Rescue team.
Emily isn’t willing to give up on her Search and Rescue dreams that easily, and she sets out to find the real culprit and to restore her reputation. With a few suspects in mind, Emily is determined to uncover the truth, but she isn’t prepared for the secrets she and the Search and Rescue dogs sniff out in the process. This exciting mystery is filled with twists and turns that will keep readers on the edge of their seats and have them pining after a Search and Rescue puppy of their own!
I received a complimentary copy of the eBook, Rock Harbor Search & Rescue through the Thomas Nelson Publishing Booksneeze Blogger program in exchange for an honest review. I loved this book. I read it in one day, and was kept guessing who stole the necklace throughout the entire novel. Emily is lovable, and the reader feels for her as she is unjustly accused of stealing. I also enjoyed that this book is geared for a younger audience, but involves the same characters as Coble's other search and rescue books. I felt like I was returning to a familiar place, yet focused on Emily and her pre-teen problems and concerns. Sometimes it's nice to not have to be an adult. All in all, a great, quick read that will keep you wondering how Emily will figure everything out.
