Welcome to Normal, Kentucky, where nothing is . . . NORMAL!

Mae West, owner of Happy Trails Campground, never thought she would become an actress like her namesake. Calling herself an actress might be far stretch as she plays a minor role in the local Civil War reenactment BATTLE AT CAMP WILDCAT.

When the reenactment doesn't go as planned, not one but two of the town's folks aren't playing dead. . .they were MURDERED!
Come to find out there was a prison break and the serial killer is believed to be in Normal and someone has stolen a motorhome from Happy Trails Campground.

Are these connected?

Mae lets boyfriend and hunky detective, Hank Sharp, follow all the leads about the murders and on the trail of the serial killer because she's got bigger s'mores in the fire.

The motorhome owners have filed a lawsuit and suing her for the deed to Happy Trails Campground. Mae has embraced Normal and there's nothing or no one going to take her campground. She's determined to find the motorhome and return it to the owners before she hands over any deed to anyone.

Mae just might find out that tapping into her namesake just might come in handy when coming face to face with a serial killer.

Another fun book in this series. I really enjoyed this one. Any story with a serial killer doesn't have to work hard for me to enjoy it seems. This was funny and the mystery was good. More time with Mae West is always a good thing for me. 

Another murder happens in this little town. This time it seems a bit more serious since there seems to be an escaped serial killer running through town. Just to make things a bit more complicated, a motor home is stolen too. Now Mae has to find the motor home and keep away from a deadly serial killer. With the help from her friends and her FBI boyfriend... this shouldn't take too long. And danger what danger. Mae West never finds danger. 

This book just had tons of fun stuff. The murders happen during a civil war enactment, there is a serial killer, there is trouble at the campsite, there is scandals and affairs and all kinds of good stuff. I feel this one was a bit more interesting and fun than the last and I am very grateful for this. I really enjoyed the relationships and the friendships and the mystery. 

This is by far one of my favorite series on the cozy mystery side. I just adore all the characters. The laundry club girls are so much fun and keep me laughing. I look forward to their scenes and I just enjoy their friendships. 

The romance is cooking up a little too. Its coming along. It's a little slow, but this is a cozy mystery  so I think that its' pretty normal....slow and tame but full of banter. I'm just crazy over Hank and he is just crazy for Mae and I am like hooray. 

The mystery was really well done in this one. I couldn't figure it out for the life of me. It was quite a surprise and came out of nowhere for me. After it was all said and done .... I was like oh uh huh. I see. So it made sense at the end. Very well written. 

I just love these books and will keep on keeping on... for as long as they are written.

Another cozy love for my bookshelf.
