Review of The Killer Outdoors


Welcome to Bushwhack, New Mexico: home to tourists, the great outdoors, and murder…

Tourist season has hit Bushwhack and Andie Sullivan—owner of Sullivan’s Adventure Company—is ready for her town to fill up with city slickers, snotty teens, and the dollars she needs to keep her business afloat after her messy divorce from Bucky Gunn—local celebrity rafting guide and Sullivan’s main competition. With all her guided tours booked, it finally seems lady luck is on her side.

But then Bucky is found dead. Not great.

And she’s the prime murder suspect. Double not great.

Being framed for murder sucks worse than a rabid chipmunk bite. Andie’s determined to clear her name, and this time her survival training skills won’t be used to fetch an ice pack. But how long can she stay one step ahead of a killer before she becomes the final victim? (Goodreads)


The characters are well rounded and well developed. Andie is busy running Sullivan’s Adventure Company, trying to make it as good as it can be. Her ex-husband has a rival company and they have had their differences. But she never expected Bucky, her ex, to turn up dead. But that is exactly what happens, and now Andie has to figure out who killed him, before she is up a creek without a paddle.

The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read. The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions pulled me into the story from the very beginning. The mystery was well developed and there were enough clues to sift through and suspects to consider. I was surprised to find out who the killer was.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well plotted mystery. I will definitely be reading the next book when it is released.

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