Summary

Geocaching isn't supposed to be about finding dead bodies. But when retiree Frannie Shoemaker goes camping, standard definitions don't apply. A weekend in a beautiful state park in Iowa buzzes with fund-raising events, a search for ninja turtles, a bevy of suspects, and lots of great food. But are the campers in the wrong place at the wrong time once too often?

Mystery adventure

I really enjoyed this book. As geocaching is becoming more popular and is making its way In murder mysteries, I think this is my favourite book on the subject to date. I love the whole idea of a treasure hunt surrounding a murder mystery and In my opinion the author covers both subjects really well, making both subjects interesting and entertaining. The fun group of characters helps and despite the fact they are outdoorsy types they are not all the fit hiking/ running ninjas you think of but a group of everyday people and friends. Can't wait to start the next book to see what predicament Frannie and her friends find themselves in.
While camping in a beautiful state park Frannie and her friends take up Geocaching but they never expected to uncover another murder mystery. A man is murdered by one of the Geocach boxes and the prize inside is found near the body. The only clue is the name In the entry log of the last person to have found it. Can that person be the killer or a witness? The friends find themselves helping the sheriff with the murder investigation because they are experts on the subject and also despite Frannie's best intentions she can't help but ask questions. As well as solving the mystery the friends also find themselves hunting for three other geocach boxes to complete the challenge, find evidence to solve a previous unsolved death and help raise funds for the park by taking part in a race.
I really like the narrator and once again think she is a treasure and pleasure to listen too.

Frannie goes rock climbing

Another hilarious mystery that opens with Frannie in a precarious position high up a hill, what was she thinking! It carries on in a similar vein, hugely enjoyable. Definitely recommend.

Sixty five is too old for this!

Poor Frannie, she is not only accident prone but also has a real knack for finding dead bodies, so it was with a great sense of relief that the foot she saw half hidden when she and some camping friends were out geocaching turned out merely to be an empty shoe. But that relief was short lived when the owner was found shortly after, and yes, he was very dead!

These delicious mysteries set around Frannie, her ex-cop husband Larry and their various camping friends are such fun. The characters are well drawn enough to become the reader's friends in absentia. They love their carefully prepared camping expeditions, with good food, expeditions out and about, bickering over trivia - and solving the murders which seem to always drift their way. And synonymous with Frannie is narrator, Michelle Babbs, who's generously accented voice just fills in all the gaps with warmth and humour. Her reading is perfectly suited to the text, with good intonation and timing and differentiated voices for all of the protagonists. A great pairing of text and narrator.

This whole Frannie Shoemaker series is light hearted but with intriguing mysteries to distract the friends from their camping idyll and To Cache a Killer is no exception. Great story, great narration, great fun..

clean mystery

Any additional comments?

I liked this one more then I expected. I did not know who did it until we got closer to the end.

The narrator did a great job in voicing the characters out and giving them there own personality.

I would highly recommend this book to all since it is a clean mystery.

I've already come to really enjoy this series, and this book held plenty of mystery to keep me hooked right up to the last.

Nice mystery

To Cache a Killer (#5 Frannie Shoemaker mystery) by Karen Musser Nortman is a thrilling mystery set in a camping vacation. Frannie and her friends get embroiled in a land scam, a murder, a cold case, and an attempted murder. On the flip side, they meet new friends, volunteer for a fundraiser and help solve the cases! The narration by Michelle Babb is outstanding! The story and the characters come alive!
