Publisher's Summary

The Blue Coyote is an IndieBRAG Medallion honoree and a finalist in the 2013 CLUE Awards.
Frannie and Larry Shoemaker love taking their grandchildren, Sabet and Joe, camping with them. But at Bluffs State Park, Frannie finds herself worrying more than usual about their safety, and when another young girl disappears from the campground in broad daylight, her fears increase. The fun of a bike ride, a flea market, marshmallow guns, and a storyteller are quickly overshadowed. Accusations against Larry and her add to the cloud over their heads. Frannie begins to puzzle out the mystery: Are the itinerant road workers as much of a threat as Frannie thinks? What about the lone woman camper who also disappears? Or is the girl's deadbeat dad behind it all?

Great plot!

Another excellent cozy mystery with a campground background. Although this is an ongoing series, each is a sound standalone. The ongoing characters are a group of friends who enjoy each other's company and plan weekends at different state parks, which are enjoyable until a police matter intervenes. No murder this time, but a young girl is abducted even as Frannie and Larry's two grandchildren are with them. Good sleuthing is done by all.
Michelle Babb gives an excellent performance once again with her ability to differentiate characters and their emotions.

What in the world is a Blue Coyote!

The Blue Coyote by Karen Nortman is an entertaining, fast-paced story about a missing child at a campground. Although second in the Frannie Shoemaker campground mystery series, it is easily a stand alone read. With a few twists and turns to the plot, the author keeps the reader guessing right to the end as to the culprit. While touching on the tragedy of kidnapping and human trafficking, The Blue Coyote is a fun book to read (or listen to as this reviewer did). The narrator, Michelle Babb, does a nice job of giving characters their unique voice, making for an enjoyable listening experience.
