Created by critically-acclaimed and best-selling authors Jerry Jenkins and Chris Fabry, the Red Rock Mysteries Series combines hair-raising adventures and Biblical values in a storyline that kids will crave. Seemingly smart 13-year-old twins Bryce and Ashley Timberline are constantly stumbling into thrilling mysteries from their hometown of Red Rock, Colorado, that are packed with excitement and real-life situations... but that's not the whole story. While the series is obviously primarily focused on mysteries that the twins solve together, each installment has its own unique problem or situation for each of the two. Also, each Red Rock book is constantly flipping to Bryce's and Ashley's own perspective, so readers, depending on their gender, can relate to either Bryce or Ashley throughout the entire story. Biblical and family values are presented as an important priority from each twin, but a balance between faith and action is wonderfully evident.

When Bryce and Ashley are offered to watch a family's herd of grazing alpacas on a farm, it's something too good to pass up. But before they venture out to the farm, their elderly neighbor Mrs. Watson discovers that her expensive jewelry is missing. In the midst of their investigation, Ashley's best friend Hayley reports that some of her family's stuff is gone as well. The search for the thief is on. Baffled with the fact that none of the town's thefts show signs of forced entry, the Timberline duo find themselves on their most puzzling and intriguing puzzle yet. Meanwhile, with the conclusion of the school year quickly approaching, Bryce and Ashley gear up for a band trip to a local amusement park, a sure bet to be a thrilling experience. But the two girls that Ashley moved ahead of in band aren't planning on letting their fellow flute player off the hook. The two warn the Timberlines that "bad things can happen at amusement parks". Will they ruin the day at Happy Canyons for Bryce and Ashley? Will the twins figure out who is robbing homes in the town of Red Rock? When the two become aware that someone is watching them during their overnight stay at the alpaca farm, something supposed to be exciting suddenly becomes a dangerous attempt to escape. Will Bryce and Ashley get out unharmed? Find out these questions and more in the most hair-raising and jam-packed Red Rock Mystery yet. With a storyline so addictive, Wild Rescue will keep readers engaged in this heart-pumping addition to the series.
