Andrea Carter and the Trouble with Treasure


I received Andrea Carter and the Trouble with Treasure for this review. It is the fifth in the Circle C Adventures series, about a girl named Andrea Carter, who lives on a cattle ranch near Fresno, California in the 1880s.

This book is published by Kregel. This is the second book I’ve received from Kregel to review. You can read about the other book here. I’d like to say how much I appreciate publishing houses like Kregel. I know that if I get a book published by them, it’s going to be clean. That is something to be appreciated!

The book I got this time, Andrea Carter and the Trouble with Treasure was a cute little book. It is #5 in a series of 6 so for about Andrea, who goes by Andi. I usually don’t like to read a book in the middle of a series, but these books make great stand alone stories and there is a little note from Andi in the front telling us a bit about her previous adventures.

Honestly, I skimmed this book and then it disappeared. This is common in this house. My 11 year old ran off with the book. She read it quickly and said she really liked it. This is saying something, because she is my dyslexic child and will not spend the effort to read something that does not hold her interest. She gave it a thumbs up!

You can go here to find out more about Kregel Publishing. You can go here to find out more about the the series of books about Andi and the Circle Adventures Series, and as always, you can click here to see what other Crew members had to say about this book.

Happy Homeschooling!

Hi Tricia,
I am enjoying reading all the reviews, and I especially like it when folks put in their kids' reactions. Your DD's reaction made me smile.
Thanks so much for your kind review and for putting in the plug for my publisher. Kregel tries to keep the bar high in both quality standards.
Thanks again!
