It was written for young adults but many adults are finding it very entertaining. The sequel, Where Love Takes You, was published in August 2013. On December 10, 2012, she published a short story called, Rag Doll. This very short story is for adults only.

In July 2013, she published a children’s picture book (in ebook and print). It’s called Jumper. Book two will be published in January or February 2014.

In reading the book description before ‘flying into’, Messages from Henry, it states the story is an “edge-of-your-seat suspense thriller.” I disagree. It’s about a homing pigeon, named Henry, who tries to save his kidnapped owner, Evelyn. A neighbor, a cop, and Evelyn’s son, depend on Henry’s notes to locate Evelyn. A very short book of ‘thirty something’ pages, a child would enjoy the short tale. In the book description it declares, Messages from Henry, for the twelve and above age group, however, I think it is better suited to the twelve and below age group. There is minimal drama for the twelve and over reader. Rebecca Scarberry does a wonderful job writing in present tense. I appreciate her writing style. Messages from Henry, is not an “edge-of-your-seat suspense thriller.” However, it is a harmless, cute, little story for young children.

This story has a good mixture of heartfelt moments and a little suspense. I loved the premise of Henry the pigeon helping Tammy and the police find his owner, Evelyn, who's been kidnapped. You'll be touched by Henry's loyalty to Evelyn throughout the story. As I read the story I kept wondering what was going to happen to Evelyn and if they'd ever find her. The author has plenty of plot twists throughout the novelette that'll keep you guessing right up until the end. One thing I would've liked is more details about the kidnapper and his reason for taking Evelyn. The best thing about this novelette is that it's suited for people of all ages.

Heroes come in all sizes and shapes. In Messages from Henry a teen/young adult mystery by Rebecca Scarberry, the hero is Henry, the homing pigeon. Henry’s mistress is kidnapped and his devotion to her may be her only chance for freedom, ferrying notes back and forth from the elderly Evelyn to Tammy, her neighbor, the authorities always seem to be one step behind the crafty villains, but at least they know Evelyn is still alive. Why would someone kidnap Evelyn? Is there ransom involved? Will Evelyn’s son pay to get his mother back? How did Henry know to go to Tammy? Simply delightful with a little quirkiness, a little mystery and characters that are warmly memorable as they personify small town caring and concern for one of their own. Henry is brilliant, definitely the star in his own quiet and determined way, flying through exhaustion to deliver his clues. Short, fast-paced and elegantly simple, Rebecca Scarberry’s Messages From Henry is a light and entertaining read for all ages, all reading time schedules with just enough intrigue and twists to feel like a much longer read. Ms. Scarberry writes with a light touch, no angst-driven drama and puts the pleasure back in stealing away for a fast flight into another world. The perfect read for younger readers to learn the joy of books!

This short story has 65 pages and almost all of them are dedicated to the story. It is well written. There are a few grammatical mistakes, but these do not matter enough to distract from the story. Henry made a few too many trips, causing a lot of repetition in the story, which became a bit annoying. I would have liked to have had less trips and more character development which would have improved the story. Overall, this was an interesting tale and I enjoyed it for the most part. AD
