Don't miss this!

Read on September 24, 2016

Group of retired friends take their trailers to a familiar campground and get involved in a murder investigation. All of the characters are totally believable, and so are their interactions. The weaving of the background of those who become the victims is not seamless, but it works anyway. It was good, and the length was perfect!
I have the audio version, and Michelle Babb is perfect in portraying each character and the narratives.

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!

Great Series!

Any additional comments?

This is a great book; this is the third book in the Frannie Shoemaker Campground Mystery series written by Karen Musser Nortman and narrated by Michelle Babb. A biking and camping trip to southeastern Minnesota turns into double trouble for Frannie Shoemaker and her friends as she deals with a canoeing mishap and a couple of bodies. Strange happenings in the campground, the nearby nature learning center, and an old power plant complicate the suspect pool and Frannie tries to stay out of it - really - but what can she do? After all, she is only curious, but sometimes it isn't just cats who have trouble with that!

This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. The story flowed very well and was very enjoyable. This book will keep you reading long into the night and you will not want to put this book down until you finish. This was such a great read and full of surprises. The narrator did a wonderful job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end.

If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader’s copy of this book. The free book held no determination on my personal 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.

Great read

Any additional comments?

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.

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.

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.

A great Cozy Mystery

I really liked this more then I did The Blue Coyote. We don't have to wait long before the bodies are found and the mystery begins. I guessed who did it quite quickly but I still liked it. I found it to be funny at times. This is a type of story that would be good made into a film, it has the background the different characters and the amateur detectives.
Michelle Babb does a great job in bring the characters to life.

Would recommend to all!
No language/sexual content, with some mild violence.

"She watches a lot of CSI."

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.
