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?

Book 2

Any additional comments?

I am a fan of the mystery/ thriller genre and I enjoyed and loved the camping humor! Blue Coyote is a mixture of mystery and humor that one can enjoy by any age especially the fans of this genre.

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.

An entertaining campground romp/mystery

This book is written like a famikusr sofa. you get into it and it feels comfortable , so you stay. it's a mystery about a disappearance in a campground. So intrinsic to the story are the familiar routines and habits of the camping fraternity. it's easy to follow and entertaining. Michelle Babb's narration is clear and with a steady Southern drawl, a delight to listen to.

The Blue Coyote

I found the book slow to begin with but once it got going I thought we are getting some where. However that was not the case. This book reminds me of Colombo. Where we know who the murder is and Colombo has to figure out how they did it and why. In this case they guessed correctly after eliminating the other suspects, they just had to figure how the suspect did it. Unfortunately it's not as good as Colombo. But I did like the interaction between the characters.
Michelle Babb did an excellent job of giving each character there own personality so you could differentiate between them.

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
