    "RVing is not for the Faint of Heart"
    Where does Peete and Repeat rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Is it Shakespeare? Is it Michael Connelly? No, it isn't... but, that's not a bad thing! This is well plotted, with characters that you become very fond of throughout the outstanding series. Mystery that itches to be solved. Settings and circumstances that call out to me, anyway.


    What other book might you compare Peete and Repeat to and why?

    The other books in the Frannie Shoemaker series.


    What about Michelle Babb’s performance did you like?

    Michelle appropriately keeps the story and characters moving. I can visualize the action taking place. Her voice work adds to and doesn't detract from a listener's enjoyment.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Fishing pole, check... camping stove, check... body bags, check...


    Any additional comments?

    I have many of this series on my Kindle as e books. The audio versions are all well done and my suggestion is, if you enjoy light mysteries, to check this series out.

    Thanks for the opportunity to listen and review!

    What did you love best about Peete and Repeat?

    The characters have always been comfortable with each other, and now their roles as characters are equally so. The humor is great , and the mystery and daily camping activities blend well. Great read/listen.

    Peete and Repeat by Karen Musser Nortman was another great Read by the author. Frannie finds herself in another murder mystery while camping. I really enjoyed reading Frannie trying to solve the mysteries and can't wait to read more by the author.

    Story
    "Double the trouble"
    What did you love best about Peete and Repeat?

    All the friends are together in this book (Frannie & Larry, Jane Ann & Mickey, Nancy & Ben, and Donna & Rob) as they head to Minnesota for some camping and biking. Shortly after they group arrives they come across the scene of two dead bodies. Not only is the group involved in another possible murder investigation but this time around Frannie had an accident getting into a canoe. Frannie having bruised ribs has to stay behind while the others go on biking, hiking, and shopping trips. Frannie starts to see some strange things happening around the campground. Was this a murder/suicide? Was someone at the campground involved? Will Frannie get involved in the investigation?

    I was immediately sucked into this story. I loved how author Karen Musser Nortman writes her characters with flaws. The story starts with a flat tire, Donna buys shoes that are too small because they are cute, Nancy is some sometimes over organized, and Frannie fell in the river and got hurt but refuses to go for medical help. I like the humor Nortman puts in her stories but the stories are written with a realistic tone.

    Narrator Michelle Babb doesn’t disappoint , she brings another story to life. Mrs Babb is a natural storyteller. She has a smooth clear voice and keeps the story moving at a steady pace. She makes listening to the story an enjoyable experience.

    I would recommend the cozy, no graphic language, sex, or graphic violence.

    I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this audiobook for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.

    Story
    "An enjoyable, light mystery"

    Frannie Shoemaker and her friends are off on another campground adventure, and this one features a pair of adult identical twins, who still dress identically and even move in unison much of the time.

    The conflict between them is not apparent until an old flame of one of the women walks into the pie shop where Frannie and friends have been noticing the twins eating with movements uncannily like synchronized swimmers. One woman is sad, the other is angry, and the man is very, very confused.

    The friends are puzzled, but it's not their business, and there's no reason for them to go prying. The rumors of a meth lab in the area, and the rundown camper on a property adjoining the campground that looks like a candidate for the rumored meth lab, are much more concerning.

    At least, that's the case until the twins turn up dead, clearly murdered.

    Of course, the friends, especially Frannie and, though he doesn't want to admit it, her husband, retired cop Larry, can't just sit back and leave the entire investigation to the local police. Especially not since Frannie and Donna were the ones who discovered the bodies.

    This is a story about mature characters with their quirks and foibles, characters who, three books into the series, are learning more about themselves and each other. They're smart, but smart doesn't always mean sensible, and they do make mistakes. I like that Frannie in particular, our main viewpoint character, is learning from experience over the course of the books without changing who she is as a person. It's an enjoyable, fairly light, clean mystery, where most of the characters are decent people with good intentions even when they get things wrong.

    As always, Michelle Babb's narration is excellent.

    Recommended.

    I bought this audiobook.

    Frannie falling out of the raft

    I love the banter between the companions. A little bit more "mystery" in this book. Clever title. I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.

    "Good Series"

    Frannie is a wonderful amateur sleuth and can’t help getting herself involved in cracking the case of dead twin sisters. Her husband, Larry, is another great character. In fact, the entire secondary cast of characters are wonderfully portrayed.

    There is so much going on in this story which makes for a very interesting mystery for readers to solve. There are dozens of twists and turns along the way. I enjoy going on these camping trips with the Shoemakers and trying to figure out whodunit right along with them.

    This is the third book in the Frannie Shoemaker Campground Mysteries. I listened to book #2 and then this one. The author gives us a complete mystery in each book and she keeps you guessing. The series is a nice one to listen to. The narrator’s voice is smooth and keeps the story flowing.

    I’ll definitely continue this series.

    I listened to audiobooks before they were cool! I read for LibriVox and I adore Stephen Briggs, T.G. Reynolds and Richard Armitage.

    Story
    "It will draw you in and delight you"

    My boyfriend got upset with me for listening to this book.
    You see, he was messaging me to bring food and I didn't notice, because there is a murder and Frannie has a hunch on who did it and she may be in danger aaaaand the story just completely sucked me in. So I bought him food and two extra Kinder chocolate bars to appease him. He's delightfully cranky when he's hungry :)

    Well anyway, this story is how I picture the Famous Five as pensioners. Going on adventures in their trailers, unmistakably running into mysteries. I liked the writing and the story a lot. I was just surprised when it ended. It may benefit from a stronger reveal. Hercule Poirot style, maybe :)

    Easy writing, good plotting, quirky characters, a wonderful narrator. It's got everything a cozy mystery should have. Somebody should film this series :D

    Any additional comments?

    Another enjoyable outing with the keen campers, Frannie and Larry Shoemaker and friends.
    Enjoying their latest happy camping, replete with eating, walking, cycling (and pies), it isn't long before they discover a body or two and begin sleuthing.
    Good characters and dialogue, gentle, if predictable, story, humour and an overall interesting cozy mystery
    The excellent Michelle Babb again helps bring the protagonists to life.
    Just right for a light-hearted listen.
