Thick as Thieves by Susan K. Marlow

Thick as Thieves by Susan K. Marlow

Andrea Carter would rather ride her palomino, Taffy, than do anything else. But life on the Circle C ranch in 1882 is busy, and Andi is left with little time to prepare for Taffy’s first foaling. When the event finally arrives, it nearly ends in disaster.

School keeps Andi hard-pressed to find time for foal training. And she now has a new problem on her hands–Macy Walker. The new girl’s crude behavior bring storm clouds into Andi’s life, as does the news that cattle rustlers have moved into the valley.

When the cattle thieves turn to stealing horses, Andi’s only hope for recovering her precious colts lies with Macy. Can Andi trust this wild girl? Does she have a choice?

Andrea Carter’s Tales from the Circle C Ranch by Susan K. Marlow


In these short stories inspired by fans’ questions, readers meet Andi’s father, join Andi and her scrappy friend Jenny Grant in Washington Territory, and discover the story behind the Fourth of July race. Why and when is Andi allowed to wear overalls? And does she succeed in finally ridding her sister Melinda of that scoundrel of a beau, Jeffrey Sullivan? Saddle up and find out! Tales from the Circle C Ranch is a perfect companion book and great transition between Andi’s adventures in the Circle C Beginnings and Adventures series to an older Andi in the Circle C Milestones.
