The Last Ride

I received a copy of THE LAST RIDE by Susan K. Marlow from Kregel in exchange for an honest review.  It is the third book in the Circle C Milestones series.  This book shows Andrea Carter turning sixteen and greatly in love with Rach life.  Uh oh – stuffy Aunt Rebecca is visiting with Cousin Daniel!  I did read the first two books in the series, and I felt that this was a smooth continuation.  I never read the first series for very young readers, but I know that this one is perfect for teens. It has a strong Christian background that I know many parents will love.  Andrea Carter is an excellent role model.  I have always loved the “Wild West.”  I would have adored these books when I was in junior high and high school.  Andrea has a strong family that helps to guide her into becoming a strong woman.

The only thing that bothered me about this book was Andrea and Daniel.  I often felt that she turned the other cheek too much with his behaviors.  It seemed a bit unrealistic and I thought that it would have helped the story if she hadn’t done that.  She could have still been a positive role model even if she had acted a bit differently in those regards.
