Enjoyable Cozy Mystery!

I've been thoroughly enjoying the few cozy mysteries I've read lately, and think that I may have just found a new genre to read!! This is no different, I ended up devouring this in a day.

The book centers on Frannie and Larry, whom are retirees enjoying a "relaxing" camping weekend with family and friends. That is until they stumble on the body of the grumpy woman who runs the campsite where they stay. This woman had multiple run ins with campers and wasn't very liked. With them being confined to the campsite till the police gather evidence, can Frannie find out the culprit from the multiple suspects?

This was such a fun "who done it" type of mystery and I really enjoyed trying to figure out who the culprit was along with Frannie and the gang. It did keep me guessing till the very end, which is always a good thing! I also loved the setting and descriptions the author gives. It truly sounds like a beautiful place. Frannie, is also another plus. She is such an easily likable character. I can't wait to read more with these characters.

In all, such a great and entertaining mystery and one I recommend to everyone.

Rebecca Roberts has really cemented herself as one of my go to narrators. Her voice and manner is so easy to listen to and she always gives a top rate performance. I always recommend her if I'm asked about good narrators.

Campground adventure

I honestly thought this book was going to be about old bony people being loony as bats. Frannie is a great crime solving person. And that recipe about smashed potatoes and sausage gravy one more recipe to add my own camping adventure this year.
