Summary

A cozy/thriller mystery!

The starry skies over New Mexico, the "Land of Enchantment", may hold secrets of their own. The Shoemakers and the Ferraros, on an extended camping trip, find themselves picking up a souvenir they don't want and taking sidetrips they didn't plan on.

A superb audiobook

Another great novel in this series, a little darker from previous ones but that makes it fresh. Great characters, excellent mystery. Audio narration is superb

Something different

This is a different style of book to the previous ones in the series, It's not so much who is the killer as you know that from the start, it's more about how is he going to be brought to justice, after kidnapping Franny and Larry's companions it's a race to find them and bring their captor to the justice he deserves.
Michelle Babb does a grand job of narrating the book and her use of different voices for the characters really brings everything she narrates to life. Highly recommended.
I was given the audio book free of charge and have given the honest and voluntary review.

Loved it!

This was probably the one of the series I had most reservations about going into it but turned out to be one of the most enjoyable books. The pace was a little slower than I’m used to at times but it was a slow build towards the end which I personally thought was great. We had suspense, a completely new avenue for the story to turn down and it really paid off to keep this one pretty unique.

Michelle narrating this one, like the others in the series she’s done, was fantastic. She really adds some personality to both male and female characters and keeps them interesting and individual too.

I really enjoyed this one and it turned out to be one of my favourites from the series.

The best story of the bunch (so far)!

What an emotional story. It's book 7 and I have really become invested in these 4 characters. The writing was tight and the narrating was spot-on. You could really hear in her voice that the characters were worried. I swear that Michelle enjoys their stories too. This story took a more serious turn from their regular fun or interesting stories, but the author threaded their regular humour in there. I quite enjoyed it and read it all in one sitting.
I totally recommend this book.

yet another comfy listening

I do love this series it is just like a warm hug in these times. I love exploring America through Frannie and her friend's adventures, but with their luck would not like to be with them. This time around Mikey and Jane Ann are really the main characters and that was a great change. (Not saying that I didnt like the other books) but it just mixed it up a bit.

I listened to the audio version and yet again Michelle Babb narrated this - she has such a gift in narration and really brings the characters to life.

I was given a free audio copy in exchange for a fair and honest review which I have done.
