The third book in my Campground Mystery series, Dying to Work Camp, is now available in larger print at Amazon. The story takes place in the State of Washington during the apple harvest where a handful of “working campers” help an orchard owner pick apples.

Although I don’t get into as much trouble as my main character, I must confess that being a Full-Time RVer is just as exciting. The idea behind this mystery came to me while touring an apple processing plant during the harvest season. The tour guide was discussing the latest imaging technology, while I was thinking, “What a great place for a murder!”

We were fortunate to explore the area and visit an apple orchard during the harvest. The photo above was taken at the edge of the orchard – where the property dropped into a steep bank and below was a deep lake. Until we heard the train, we hadn’t even noticed the tracks below!

It was certainly a memorable visit – from the farming community of Quincy to the surreal drive to the city of Wenatchee – the “Apple Capital of the World”. Beyond Wenatchee are peaks and mountains that lead to the “Bavarian Village” of Leavenworth.

Fortunately, we didn’t end-up battered, bruised and bin-deep in murder as my main character did!

After a harrowing work camp experience, Full-Time RVer Molly Miller is anxious to get back on the road again. Molly, her handsome husband-to-be and their precocious pug travel to the North Olympic Peninsula for a well-earned respite.

They quickly find that Moon Beach RV Resort is anything but relaxing. Soon after their arrival the trio witness a grave robbery. Unfortunately, there are more than just restless spirits along the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

When Molly and Jove are asked to be fill-in camp hosts, they find themselves dealing with Boo, Bigfoot and the border patrol. But it’s a pair of rude bird-watchers and the reclusive Mr. Smith that Molly sets her sights on.

Once again the trio is camped on the front-lines of criminal activity. Only this time Molly’s sleuthing could literally blow the case wide open.

If you find yourself within a day-trip of Mansfield (MO), I recommend a visit to the Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Homestead. The homestead consists of the farmhouse Laura and Almanzo built, a museum devoted to the Ingalls and Wilder families, a gift shop and vegetable garden. A brief drive will take you to the Rock House, which Rose Wilder Lane built for her parents.

The farmhouse remains as Laura left it in the 1950s – you are literally stepping back into time. Admission price includes a guided tour of both homes and entrance into the museum. Current admission prices are $10 for adults and $8 for seniors.

FROM THE BACK COVER:

Regardless of her being the sole winner of a $500 million lottery jackpot, Molly Miller is your average twenty-nine year old woman.  She just wants to take care of her family and friends and pursue her own goals.

After giving away most of her first installment check, Molly takes off in a new pickup truck and fifth-wheel to roam the United States and follow her dreams of being a writer.

Her first stop is Emerald Bay, Florida.  Although she had no intention of staying long, she decides to call Emerald Bay home for several months after befriending the handsome local sheriff.

Molly quickly becomes friends with the seasonal residents at Emerald Bay Campground and begins to enjoy her new RVing lifestyle.

When one of her fellow campers suffers a stroke, Molly begins to have doubts. Her suspicions of the honeymooners a few campsites away from her grow.  The pieces quickly begin to add up, but will it be in time to save Molly from dangerous criminals?
