Genre: Cozy Mystery
Rating: 5 stars!
Tonya Kappes is a pro at capturing the southern town of Normal, Kentucky! From the descriptions of the crisp leaves changing colors in the fall all the way down to the perfect wedding venue Tonya provides a vivid pictures for all to see. The Camper & Criminals series has been a favorite series of mine since the first book released and I have been captivated by each book since. Kappes writes in a league of her own and I am always looking forward to her next release with enthusiasm. If you are a reader of cozy mysteries and enjoy books that not only provide the perfect setting and backdrop that will fulfill your needs of travel without having to actually leave the house, then this series is a must read for you. Not only that, the mysteries are excellent! She knows how to leave a trail of breadcrumbs leading to a killer while also tricking us into thinking it's one person when it's actually another! I love the surprise factor! In this book, I certainly didn't see "who-dun-it" until the big reveal at the end!
That being said, readers who are fans of this series are going to want to join Mae, Gert, Dottie, and the rest of the crew as they get ready for their first wedding party at the Happy Trails Camp Ground. Unfortunately, what's supposed to be a happy moment for everyone involved turns deadly when one of the individuals in the wedding party gets killed... What will happen to the wedding? Has Mae finally met her match with a killer? And what will happen with all the ladies as one of their own is thrust into the spotlight for possibly being a killer? Well, you'll have to read Valley's, Vehicles & Victims to find out!
SIDE NOTE: I recommend reading this book in order of publication as a certain romantic relationship does blossom throughout the series. Not only that, these books are lighthearted and fairly quick to read so you can breeze through the series in no time!
