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.
