Welcome to Normal, Kentucky where nothin' is normal!

Mae West is just getting settled into the RV lifestyle as owner of the local camp ground in Normal, Kentucky. The Happy Trails Camp Ground, located in the Daniel Boone National Park, has started to bring in tourists for the late summer vacationing family that love to hike, swim, fish, and enjoy the outdoor life.

The Laundry Club ladies are still holding court ( better known as gossip sessions) in the local laundry mat. They're spinning more tales than the washing machine spin cycle after there's a string of burglaries happening in their small, southern town.

Suddenly everyone in Normal is on alert after one of their own is found dead. Even though Mae West tries her best to stay out of it, she can't. After all, it's not good for business when a murderer is on the loose. Plus, Betts Hager, one of the Laundry Club ladies and Mae's good friend, is the number one suspect and now it's personal to Mae.

Mae has grown to love her RV community and now that she's found a place to belong, she's not going to let anyone ruin it, throwing her deep into using her amateur sleuthing skills to bring the real killer to justice.

This series is my guilty pleasure! I love everything about it- the setting, the characters, the mysteries, and the charm! Tonya Kappes is still a fairly new author to me but right now I am absolutely hooked to her stories. She writes these books with exquisite detail and brings her characters to life. I wouldn’t mind a visit to Normal, Kentucky is this was a real place. If you are a fan of cozy mysteries and/or like books that come free in the kindle unlimited program them I highly recommend this book and series to you! I can’t wait to see what Mae digs up next, especially with Fifi by her side!
