Cleaning cabins and washing dishes isn't what twelve-year-old Haley Sparks had in mind for her summer vacation. She never imagined she'd be working at her Uncle Jake's new bed-and-breakfast called Rockaby Ranch. And she never dreamed she would spend the summer tracking down an arsonist. On the night of her arrival at the ranch, Haley is greeted by the sight of a cabin going up in flames. Uncle Jake chalks the fire up to bad luck. But Haley suspects foul play. But who among the guests would do such a thing? And why? Could it be Aquanetta Real, an aspiring country singer from Houston? Vivica Dove, the granddaughter of Uncle Jake's old friends the Craigs? Or maybe Rags, the ranch hand, who has a history of trouble? When another fire scatters the horses and almost sets the barn on fire, Haley is determined to find the culprit before Uncle Jake loses his ranch. Marianne Mitchell's riveting mystery, set among the red rocks and canyons of Sedona, Arizona, will engage the minds of young mystery lovers as her plucky young detective inches closer to unmasking the firebug.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Marianne Mitchell's Book Firebug had me reading non-stop. The sentence structure was slightly boring, but the plot was great. When i got to the end though i was almost dissapointed, because i knew excatily who was starting the fires. The great thing about it was that Mrs. Mitchell didn't tell you why the arsonist was starting the fires untill the end. This was an okay book, but i dont highly recomend it.
