A biking and camping trip to southeastern Minnesota turns into double trouble for Frannie Shoemaker and her friends as she deals with a canoeing mishap and a couple of bodies. Strange happenings in the campground, the nearby nature learning center, and an old power plant complicate the suspect pool and Frannie tries to stay out of it--really--but what can she do? After all, she is only curious, but sometimes it isn't just cats who have trouble with that!
This cozy mystery was a bit different than others because there was a backstory to it, about two very peculiar twins, adult women with an unhealthy relationship. Frannie Shoemaker and her friends meet these two women at a campground where they are spending some days. It was a very entertaining listen, and I honestly could not figure out who was the murder. There were so many twists and turns, and surprises along the way, that I was completely hooked.
This book is the third in the series but it can be perfectly read as a standalone, as the characters are briefly introduced again, and there is no information that must be known from previous books.
Michelle Bab did a wonderful job bringing all the characters to life, and providing a very expressive narration, with subtle changes to make the characters recognizable. Listening to a book narrated by Babb is always a pleasure.
This is a nice series that I would recommend to anyone, especially to those who are into cozy mysteries. I am looking forward to listening to book four.I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
My name is Elena. Since I was a little child I loved science fiction and fantasy, and I can’t resist a good novel. In 2015, while wait I started to listen to audiobooks and I discovered the pleasure in being able to read while doing my daily tasks, so there’s always an audiobook playing on my phone. If you see me with my Bluetooth headphones on, please be gentle, I get easily startled.
I live with my boyfriend, which I met during my six-year stay in Belgium, four cockatiels, eight lovebirds, and a hamster in Madrid, Spain; and I like to spend my free time knitting and sewing while listening to audiobooks.
