Release Date:
September 18, 2019

Synopsis on Goodreads:

Everyone in Normal is excited for the Hoe Down to celebrate the grand opening of the new Old Train Station motel. But the evening comes to an abrupt end when a lightning storm knocks out all the power. At least, that's what appears to have knocked out the electricity. But things aren't always as they appear.

Mae West has a way of sticking her nose where it doesn't belong and finds herself in a dangerous situation when she finds a treasure map that leads to more than just treasure...a dead body!

My Review

I was delighted to take another trip to Normal, Kentucky and meet up with my old friend Mae West and her cohorts.  I’m listening to this series on audio and it makes me feel like I’m right in the center of Mae’s Happy Trails campgrounds.

Of course Mae is always stumbling across dead bodies and sticking her nose right into the investigation.  This story is no different.

Once again, the author gives us a fast-paces murder mystery to figure out.  It’s intriguing and features a town of quirky characters.  One of the most enjoyable things for me is seeing how the characters continue to grow.  

This is the 7th book in the series and I’ll be listening to more in the very near future.

  1. Sounds like a fun read. You do reviews very well.

    Have a fabulous day and rest of the week. ♥

  2. I've not heard of this series. I'm curious to know if Mae West is named after the actress and if it somehow ties to the story line. Sounds like fun.
