Review of Christmas, Criminals and Campers

Christmas, Criminals & Campers
A Camper & Criminals Cozy Mystery, Book #4
Tonya Kappes
5 Stars


Welcome to Normal, Kentucky where NOTHING is normal.

Librarian Abby Fawn is star struck when her favorite romance author, Nadine White, has rented a cozy camper at the Happy Trails Campground for the winter months.

Abby is devastated to find out Nadine White is nothing like the person she portrays in interviews or on social media. In fact, Nadine White is not nice at all and Abby lets her feelings known that she thinks Nadine is a fraud. . .after she finds out Nadine has a ghost writer.

When Nadine White is found dead in the Normal Library, Abby Fawn is Detective Hank Sharp’s number one suspect.

It’s time for Mae West to put up her camping gear for the winter months and put on her sleuthing gear to figure out who is framing Abby Fawn before Abby is the ending in Nadine White’s final chapter.

From USA Today Bestselling Author Tonya Kappes, this bestselling and hilarious mystery series is all the rage! You don’t want to miss out! (Goodreads)


The characters are well rounded and well developed. Mae and the Laundry Club girls are quirky, funny and caring and I really enjoy getting to spend time with them. When one of their own is accused of murder, they are right there, protecting her and helping her in any way they can. And Mae has more on her plate when her foster mom comes to visit. Will she be able to handle it all?

The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read. The author is very talented in creating authentic Southern settings and creates communities that I would love to visit.

The mystery is carried on well throughout the book. There were enough clues to sift through and suspects to consider. I thought I knew who the killer was, but I was wrong. Or was I?

I would recommend this fun cozy mystery to and one who enjoys a well crafted cozy. I am already looking forward to the next book.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book and provided my honest review.
