More About the Author
Karen Musser Nortman, after previous incarnations as a secondary social studies teacher (22 years) and a test developer (18 years), returned to her childhood dream of writing a novel. Bats and Bones, a cozy mystery, came out of numerous 'round the campfire' discussions, making up answers to questions raised by the peephole glimpses one gets into the lives of fellow campers. Where did those people disappear to for the last two days? What kinds of bones are in this fire pit? Why is that woman wearing heels to the shower house?
Karen and her husband Butch originally tent camped when their children were young and switched to a travel trailer when sleeping on the ground lost its romantic adventure. They take frequent weekend jaunts with friends to parks in Iowa and surrounding states, plus occasional longer trips. Entertainment on these trips has ranged from geocaching and hiking/biking to barbecue contests, balloon fests, and buck skinners' rendezvous. Frannie and Larry will no doubt check out some of these options on their future adventures.
Karen has three children and eight grandchildren. She also loves reading, gardening, and knitting, and can recite the 99 counties of Iowa in alphabetical order.

It soon turned into fast paced plot with more twists and turns than a whirlygig.
I look forward to reading more adventures of Frannie Shoemaker and her friends.
The novel is very light-hearted and easy to read.
No surprises - but sometimes a mild mystery with a dash of humour and suspense is just what you want.
I did feel that there was perhaps too much extraneous info and description, but the story flowed fairly smoothly and there were no loose ends at the conclusion.
And each chapter is concluded with a camping tip! So you get extra value for your dollar!
