Publisher Description

Peri is afraid no one will pick her as a friend in her new town of Bell Buckle, where she and her father move into a dilapidated house they are turning into an inn. To make matters worse, she’s always losing or forgetting things. By caring for a litter of puppies, Peri hopes to earn back her father’s trust; unfortunately all she gains is trouble when things she is responsible for start to disappear.

With the help of Lynn Ann, the girl who lives across the street, and Squirt, an eight-week Labrador, Peri conducts her own investigation to track down the stolen items. Could there be a burglar among the residents of Bell Buckle? More important, why is he stealing her things? During her probing into the mystery, Peri finds more than just the stolen items. She discovers the love of the people in Bell Buckle, and she finds a renewed faith in God’s ability to answer seemingly impossible prayers.

A sweet story

I am an old woman but it did not deter me from reading this book. What a wonderful story about changes we can’t control, hope, encouragement, friendship, family, new beginnings and how faith in God’s promises to us are truly real. He has answers before we have the questions. I heartily recommend this book, especially would appeal to a preteen girl (and old women).

This is a good book. Great for pre-teens. I’ve been trying to find a book for myself, but all the books for my age are so plain and dull, so it was good to find this one.🙂
