Review of Blossoms, Barbeque and Blackmail

Blossoms, Barbeque and Blackmail

A Camper And Criminals Cozy Mystery, Book #20

Tonya Kappes

5 Stars


The last thing Normal needs is Dottie Swagger or Mary Elizabeth Moberly as the Ms. Blossom Festival Queen.

I thought I had my hands full when Dottie Swaggert and Mary Elizabeth Moberly entered the Ms. Blossom Queen Beauty Pageant for seniors but when I witnessed a fight at the festival between Carrie Patillo and Jason Dresser, Carrie’s daughter’s accused killer, I knew Jason was wrongfully accused for the murder and set up.

How was I going to prove it before the trial started?

Easy. Gather the Laundry Club Ladies and use our unique sleuthing skills. Right?


After we uncovered some evidence of blackmail and head on over to tell Jason what we found out. . .we found out something alright. The true killer got to Jason first.

If that wasn’t enough to deal with, Bobby Ray Bond found his real mama. With her impending arrival, we Laundry Club Ladies have our hands full with Blossoms, BBQ, & Blackmail.

Welcome to Normal where NOTHING is normal!  (Amazon)


There is always something going on at the campground and you know that Mae is involved in all of it.  Mae and the Laundry Club Ladies will have to try and figure out who killed Jason Dresser, who was awaiting trial for a hunting death.  They have to figure out who is responsible and make sure they pay.

The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions pulled me into the story from the very beginning.  The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read.  The mystery was well plotted and not easily solved. 

I would recommend this book, and series, to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery.  I wonder what will happen to Mae and the gang next?

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