    1. BTW Mrs. M wanted to say umm I don’t have the anniversary edition for SF Smugglers. Would it be cheating to ask how many years apart they are?…


  1. Are you going to do the list of all those who got 100% or got the bonus question correct? I really like seeing all the people who got it right.


  2. If we get more than one question wrong but the bonus question right, will you put it as 100%, or does it only count for one wrong answer?


    1. It counts as ONE wrong answer. So, if you miss one of the main questions but get the bonus question right, you score 100%. But if you miss more than one, then it doesn’t count.


  3. Also, Jeffery and Peter are both beaus in the series. Should I do the person the whole family approved of and loved Melinda for herself and not money?


    1. Umm it says the Circle C Adventures that’s the books like Long Ride Home through Price Of Truth not the whole series! 😉.Does that help??

  4. This is one of the easier character quizzes I’ve hosted. But giving you chapters (or page numbers???) in addition to the name of the book seems a bit much. In the old days, I never even gave the name of the book where you could find the answer.

    It seems like you are almost asking me to tell you the answers. A very strange phenomena. Maybe you aren’t all that interested in character quizzes any longer? The idea is to have a good time reading the books and learning about the characters, not to have me hold your hands and tell you exactly where to find the answers.

    Just sayin’ . . .


    1. I wasn’t the person who commented above but I LOVE these CQ’s!!!! Please continue to do them!!!!
      I’m going to crack open those books tomorrow and get started on this CQ!
      I enjoy doing them and they are fun!!!! 🙂 🙂

    2. OK I’m sorry- I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the Character Quizzes. I looked and read the entire book for question and cant find the answer:(. But I was not just trying to find the answer-from you:)-thanks though!!


    1. You really don’t need to read the book. The answer, if you “REALLY” know Melinda Carter, is obvious. LOL
      However, I will give you one more hint. Page 71. I can’t imagine how you missed it. It’s stated practically word for word.
      Good luck!


  5. I’m so sorry Mrs. Marlow I already have the answer to question 16, which I knew without reading the book. I meant to say question 12 I couldn’t find after re-reading the price of truth.


  6. OK I just emailed my answers though my sister’s email (I don’t yet have my own email) SOOOO excited for the 23rd!! I LOVE CHARACTER QUIZES SO MUCH!

      1. Aw! Just curious, eh? Lol
        I don’t really know, actually, since I am out of town for the weekend and the entries are building up. I will know next week when I get home. 😉


  7. It’s so hard waiting for it to end!! Although I know I got one wrong, sadly. I couldn’t find the book the question was in until after I sent in my answers… But I think I got the bonus right, so hopefully I did!


  8. No, it was in Courageous Love. I couldn’t find the book because it was on my desk in my room and I didn’t find it until I had already sent in my answers. Thx, though!
