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?

Good Mystery

This is the second book in the Frannie Shoemaker Campground Mystery series. It’s the first book I’ve read by this author and I’m already hooked.

The main characters are likeable and well-written. The plot intrigued me and kept me guessing. It is fast-paced.

I listened to the audio version. The narrator, Michelle Babb, always draws me into the stories she narrates. Her voice is perfect for story telling. She does a great job with it.

I’m adding this series to my list of cozies I want to read.

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.
