GIFTS, GLAMPING, & GLOCKS BY TONYA KAPPES
Welcome to Normal, Kentucky, a small town in the Daniel Boone National Forest and Happy Trails Campground, where the annual Christmas activities are in full swing. But behind the twinkling lights and festive cheer lies a sinister secret.
When a local delivery driver is found murdered in Seymore’s Candy Cane Factory, suspicion quickly falls on the eccentric cast of characters who call Normal home. From the grumpy old man who own’s the candy cane factory, to the bubbly town fiddle player, Otis Gullett, who is secretly in a rendezvous with the factory owner’s wife. No one is above suspicion.
As the investigation heats up, the town's residents begin to turn on each other, and the killer's true identity becomes more and more elusive. As the body count rises, Mae West and the Laundry Club Ladies must race against the clock to uncover the truth before the killer strikes again.
With a southern twist and plenty of red herrings, Gifts, Glamping, & Glocks is a holiday thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.
I love this series so much that when a new book comes out, I stop everything I’m doing. I want to live in Normal, Kentucky and stay at Mae’s camp. I will invite myself into the Laundry Club Ladies group and become a detective. The excitement never ends as another murder creeps up in the town. We know who the victim is, but we don’t know why or who did it. Let’s gets ready to follow Mae as she starts her investigation.
It was very interesting to read how candy canes are made and I could smell the peppermint as we toured the factory. One of my favorite things is peppermint. I love it in cake, ice cream , hot cocoa or just by itself. The description of the process it takes to make candy canes captivated me. This is the perfect story to cozy up with as we get ready for the holidays.
The author doesn’t miss a beat as laughter is scattered throughout the story with a mixup of a robe. Oh I fell in the floor visualizing Hank in this get up. I guess he was in such a hurry to get to a call that he grabbed whatever was close by. After everyone calms down, they try to figure out who was trying to break into the B&B at this hour of the night. With a suspect on the loose, an unexplained fire at the campground, Mae has her hands full trying to solve the case. This is a story that has excitement, laughs, a bit of danger and a cast of characters sure to keep any reader entertained. Don’t miss the recipes and camping hacks at tge end of the book.I think I need to go get some candy canes now.
