About the Author
"Wow! I have just finished book #4 in the Andrea Carter Series, Andrea Carter and the San Francisco Smugglers. It is quite a story of adventure and intrigue. I was kept spellbound and could not lay the book down until I reached the end. Susan Marlow has a real flair for story lines that hold your interest. I look forward with anticipation for her next book!" Marie Weltz, Coordinator, Young Authors Conference for NW Washington state "For readers who like stories about girls who love horses, this fourth 'must read' novel by Susan Marlow again features Andrea Carter of the Circle C Ranch. She is unwillingly relocated from the country to San Francisco where she tries to do the right thing and unexpectedly becomes involved in exciting adventures, rising suspense, and unique dangers. I recommend this wholesome book as fun reading for children, and to parents who can give it to them without first reading it." Lee Roddy Author of The Ladd Family Adventures and 3 other series for young readers "As the author of many stories for young readers, I am pleased to recommend this fourth novel by Susan Marlow. Her crisp writing takes readers on a suspenseful adventure with a horse-loving Andrea Carter who unwillingly leaves the ranch for San Francisco where she is plunged into unexpected danger from a different kind of smugglers. This is a 'must read' for those who like excitement, mystery and danger as faced by an appealing young heroine." Lee Roddy Author of The Ladd Family Adventures and 3 other series for young readers "For girls who love horses and spirited young heroines, this fourth 'must read' novel by Susan Marlow again features Andrea Carter of the Circle C Ranch. She unwillingly leaves her favorite horse behind to relocate in San Francisco where she tries to befriend a Chinese girl and unexpectedly becomes entangled with San Francisco smugglers. I recommend this as a 'must read' fun novel to girls, and to parents for its wholesome tone." Lee Roddy Author of The Ladd Family Adventures and 3 other series for young readers “In Andrea Carter and the San Francisco Smugglers, Susan Marlow does an excellent job of portraying the immigrant city life of 1881 San Francisco as viewed from the eyes of her heroine. We find Andi out of her natural element and into an academy for young ladies. Faced with some of the more serious prejudices of her time, Andi has to make some hard decisions. In the process of trying to do a very noble thing, she finds herself in a place where the only way out is to trust in the God that is bigger than all danger. In this fourth book in the Circle C Adventures series, Andi has matured and is determined not to make the same mistakes of her past. The realistic setting makes it a perfect choice for studying the early days of California, or a valuable addition to your home library.” Kate Kessler Product Reviews Manager, The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, LLC "Susan Marlow has done it again! In the latest Circle C Adventure, Andrea Carter and the San Francisco Smugglers, Susan proves that Andi's adventures aren't limited to the ranch. In San Francisco, Andi finds new challenges that she meets head-on with her usual sass and spunk. Through it all, she remains true to her family values and Christian principles, and continues to be a character that young girls can relate to and admire." Heidi Strawser, homeschool mom and product reviewer for The Old Schoolhouse magazine "I have read all of Andrea Carter's adventures and this one is my favorite! This book was so interesting that I had trouble putting it down between chapters. †I liked the San Francisco setting and the fact that the storyline was based on true historical events. Ride on, Andi! I'm anxious for another adventure." Ashley, grade 8 "I liked this book because it was interesting and exciting. I really liked hearing about the little Chinese girls in this story. I kept asking my mom to read more and more." Gracie, grade 3 "Susan K. Marlow's Circle C Adventures series just keeps getting better. Book 4, Andrea Carter and the San Francisco Smugglers is the best yet. Andi ends up in terrible trouble at a stuffy San Francisco school for young ladies. If I were a nail-biter, my fingernails would be worn down to nothing after reading this book. I lived every tense moment of Andi's most dangerous adventure so faran adventure that includes a wild-haired, lovable roommate and a small, mistreated Chinese slave girl. Chinatown's dark alleys and enemies as determined to make the girls disappear as they are to find a way of escape, are both believable and based on historical facts." Colleen L.
