Andrea Carter and the San Francisco Smugglers
Circle C Adventures Book 4
When a winter flood in Fresno closes school temporarily, Andi is outraged when she’s sent to live with a spinster aunt in San Francisco, doomed to finish the winter term of school at Miss Whitaker’s Academy for Young Ladies. But her new roommate, the equally untamable Jenny, and the timid but tenderhearted Lin Mei, a young girl who works at the school, expose her to a whole new world. Soon these three new friends find themselves in more trouble than they can handle.
Read below about the whole Circle C Adventures Series:
Readers ages 8–14 have fallen in love with Andrea Carter! But how could they not? The 1880s are exciting times and Andi can’t seem to stop getting into trouble on her huge cattle ranch near Fresno, California. By the time she turns thirteen, she’s had more fun than most kids have in a lifetime.
But the fun doesn’t have to stop! Now available as a set, all six of Andrea’s Circle C Adventures will keep kids reading for hours.
The Six Books Include:
The Long Ride Home (Book One), friends help Andi search for Taffy, her stolen Palomino mare.
Dangerous Decision (Book Two), they can ride alongside Andi and Taffy during a horse race.
The Family Secret (Book Three), after dealing with escaped convicts and wild horses, Andi finds her biggest surprise yet: a sister she never knew she had.
San Francisco Chronicles (Book Four), Andi is annoyed at having to move to to live with a spinster aunt in San Francisco, where she must attend Miss Whitaker’s Academy for Young Ladies. But with her new roommate Jenny, these friends find more trouble than they can handle.
The Trouble with Treasure (Book Five), Andi and big brother Mitch find a map showing old gold diggings, and just can’t wait to strike it rich. What could be better than two weeks of camping and horseback riding? But as usual, more trouble than they counted on comes looking for them!
The Price of Truth (Book Six), Andi must make a choice: will she testify to the truth of a crime she saw, even when the perpetrators threaten to harm her beloved horse Tammy?
Andi (the same girl you loved in the Circle C Beginnings Series), now a teen named Andrea, keeps readers guessing as her story moves from one adventure to the next. So don’t wait. Saddle up and ride into the old west with the Circle C Adventures and Andrea Carter.
