Join Rip and Rapella Ripple and the Chartreuse Caboose on Their First Three Adventures Filled With Mystery and Mayhem

BOOK 1: A RIP ROARING GOOD TIME – Senior citizens and full-time RVers, Rip and Rapella Ripple, are headed to Rockdale, Missouri, in their old travel trailer (aka The Chartreuse Caboose) to attend a friend’s surprise birthday party. But surprise quickly turns to shock when a party guest is found murdered and Lexie Starr, a friend of the Ripples, is hauled off to jail as suspect number one. Determined to exonerate Lexie, the Ripples put the Chartreuse Caboose in park and their investigating tactics in drive. But more than a simple frame-up is afoot when the victim’s stepfather, who is also the local Police Chief, ignores the Ripple’s findings.

BOOK 2: RIP TIDE – Rip and Rapella Ripple are spending the holidays with daughter Regina, in their hometown of Rockport, TX. When Regina’s new husband, Milo Moore, becomes a suspect in an off-shore harpooning homicide, the Ripples set out to exonerate him. But proving Milo didn’t harpoon his best friend and business partner, Cooper Claypool—with Claypool’s spear-gun while out poaching red snapper in the Gulf of Mexico—is more challenging than the Ripples anticipated.

BOOK 3: RIPPED TO SHREDS – Visiting Wyoming’s Rest ‘n Peace RV Park, senior citizens and full-time RVers Rip and Rapella Ripple are intent on winning a wildlife photo contest. But while trying to snap the perfect nature photo, Rapella’s game camera captures the truth behind the RV park owner’s mysterious death. Now Rip and Rapella are knee-deep in their own investigation, and on the trail of poachers illegally trapping bears in the Bighorn National Forest.
