Prisoner of the Pyrenees~Book review

     Mr. Baker steered too far away from the edge and almost lost a side-mirror against the mountain wall. He touched the brake to regain control and nudged the steering-wheel to the right. In that moment of delay, the SUV surged up from behind and crunched their bumper. 

     "God have mercy!" he gasped. "They're trying to kill us!"
     The Bakers are minding their own business when Briosa Del Quera bursts into their lives. She is an orphaned Catalan girl who is still reeling from her grandfather's death.  His last words instructed her to find people called 'Baker' and get in contact with a secret agent they know-but Jigson has gone missing in suspicious circumstances and not even his agency is able to contact him. 

     Detective Mortimer says that Mr. Jigson was last seen in the Pyrenees mountains, and the Bakers are determined to find him and help Briosa get to the bottom of the plot against her grandfather. But as their journey through northern Spain becomes a breathless race to avoid villains and meet allies, they wonder if Briosa has really told them everything....

     From a desperate car-chase to a stealthy escape from a Spanish fortress, the Bakers are tested to the limits of their courage and their trust in the Lord. 

     Can they find Jigson and stop a global conspiracy, or will they all become prisoners of the Pyrenees? 
      The Baker Family Adventures follow the exciting lives of Mr. and Mrs. Baker and their four children: responsible Phil, sensible Abby, daring Andy, and inquisitive Tom. The Bakers are a Christian homeschooling family who, in their desire to help others, frequently find themselves in dangerous situations where they must grow in courage and learn important lessons of godliness.

What I thought:
 This is the 5th book in the Baker Family Adventure series. I was so excited to learn that Caitlin Hedgcock had published a new book, and I couldn't wait to read it. This book was so captivating and thrilling-I truly did not want to put it down once I started it. The only thing I was disappointed about was that I was left hanging once I reached the end.  ;) Hopefully she has a sequel to this book in mind. ;D  I have read all 5 books, and let me tell you, they're some of the best fiction books out there. All the books are well written, adventurous,  purely clean, exciting, and teach godly principles.  Children of all ages and grown-ups will love reading these delightful and awesome books! Even though Prisoner of the Pyrenees is part of a series, it can be read as a stand-alone book.
You can visit the author and order the books on Caitlin's website: C.R. Hedgcock. 
I want to give a huge thanks to Caitlin for allowing me to do this review.

***I was given a free copy of this book from Caitlin Hedgcock for an honest review. 
All thoughts are my own.*** 

Praising the Lord,
Psalms 145:8-12
The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy. The Lord is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works. All thy works shall praise thee, O Lord; and thy saints shall bless thee. They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power; To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom.
