Publisher's Summary

A holiday novella. The Shoemakers and Ferraros plan to spend Christmas in Texas with Larry and Jane Ann's brother and then take a camping trip through the Southwest. But those plans are stopped cold when they hit a rogue ice storm in Missouri and they end up snowbound in a campground. And that's just the beginning.

    Story
    "A Cozy Christmas Adventure"
    Any additional comments?

    A good, clean, fun campground adventure. A cozy Christmas adventure. This is my first Frannie Shoemaker campground adventure. But it was just as enjoyable as her Time Travel Trailer series. It's a cute, light, entertaining and fun, spirit of Christmas story. I say spirit of Christmas but really it's about caring and helping someone in need no matter what time of year it is.

    Setting off on a Holiday adventure they're plans suddenly change due to severe weather. Their adventurous holiday misfortune from weather turns into another mans miracle.

    Michelle Babb did a great job with the narration. Pleasant voice. Easy to listen to. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace to her narration. Good character voices. She made the characters and the story come to life. Very enjoyable.

    I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook by the narrator, author or publisher.

    Story
    "A short & sweet Christmas adventure"

    I love all of the Frannie Shoemaker mysteries, but this might just be my favorite! It's short and sweet, but has all the elements to make you feel warm and fuzzy inside. There is compassion, humor, camaraderie, a bit of adventure (and misadventures), a furry pup, and lots of holiday cheer.

    Even though it's not quite the holidays here just yet, the imagery in this book made me feel like I was there in that time & place. Michelle Babb narrated this so well (as usual), and all the visual narration of the cold and snow helps you transport. It's a feel good from start to finish with a bit of innocent mystery tied in. I was gifted this book in exchange for my honest review

    Story
    "A Christmas Classic in the making."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! I predict that this will be a Christmas Classic around my house. I've enjoyed several of the Frannie Shoemaker Camper stories in the series. This is a story of what Christmas means. Caught in a blizzard at a campground on Christmas Eve, Frannie, her husband and their close friends / in laws, start with "making do". The story evolves into a heartwarming "adventure" - different, and delightfully so!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The whole group but I liked Dasher. I'm a sucker for brown eyes, lol.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The whole story worked so well, but the Christmas Dinner with the Shoemakers, Ferraros, J.C., Dasher was heartwarming.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both actually. Karen Muser Nortman's character interactions are funny, and I relate to the relationship between the men bickering. And I was very much touched by the family and Spirit of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Michelle Babb was a perfect choice for the story. She adds so much to the overall "feel" of it. Pleasant voices, subtle differences in characters, truly enjoyable.

    Thanks for the opportunity to review "A Campy Christmas" and the entire Frannie Shoemaker series!

    "Nice story"

    Enjoyed listening to this short story. There is no blood and gore, just a nice short story about four people spending an unusual Christmas together.

    It is not overly sappy, but does leave you with a smile.

    "What stopped me from giving....."

    What stopped me from giving this a 5vstar review is the length! If this is Book #6(That's what it said in the beginning & this so far is the only 1 I've listened to)I bet you could put all the books together & make 1 Regular size book! Don't get me wrong, what was there was good but you BARELY got time to know the characters & it was over! I also felt like I was missing some stuff! However all the info I am missing VERY WELL COULD BE IN BOOKS 1-5!!

    Story
    "A fun, little adventure!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes. I listened to it while spinning on my spinning wheel on a cold November night and I felt like I was right there on the road trip with the characters.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Karen Musser Nortman? Why or why not?

    Yes, I would because I found this one enjoyable.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Michelle Babb?

    Yes, I would because I found her voice to be quite pleasant to listen to.


    Was A Campy Christmas worth the listening time?

    Yes, in fact it went by very quickly.


    Any additional comments?

    I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.I love when authors include animals, especially dogs in their stories.

    "Spooky Christmas Story"

    This story was a cute mystery that takes place in an empty park campsite just prior to Christmas. I kept expecting a body to show up, or a murderer, but the actual mystery was a good one nonetheless. The mystery character was unexpected, as we're their circumstances. Personally, I would have been freaked out using the campsite's facilities once I suspected that I wasn't alone! I will be buying more audio book mysteries from this author because they are quick "reads" and perfect for a short commute.

    Story
    "The joys of winter camping"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Brought back memories of RVing


    If you’ve listened to books by Karen Musser Nortman before, how does this one compare?

    Not as much mystery and clues as the others.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


    Did A Campy Christmas inspire you to do anything?

    Never go winter camping!
