FUN to read! This realistic grandparent-age couple, 37 years wed, banter with affection. The more you read, the more you fall in love with them. They're reminiscent of Poirot and Miss Marple as retired senior citizens, blissfully married to one another, off on vacation only to stumble onto a murder scene. They nearly compete to uncover clues. Although being the corpse finder, Denton and wife Alex also become first suspects, followed by everyone at the RV camp. It's Agatha Christie-style sleuthing in Pigeon Forge to find a killer and a hog--the missing Harley.Carole Brown offered readers an extremely tight-twisted cast of characters that come unraveled only during the staged crime revelation assembly led by Poirot (oops, Denton & Alex). The great crime writer Agatha Christie ended many of her bestsellers in this fashion.Brown takes the sleuths a step further.
Murder was solved with chapters remaining.
Added disclosures surprised me as reader.
Then a heart-warmed final chapter lifted a 4.5-star mystery to a full 5-star FUN novel.
I'd recommend this to any Christian novel reader. Boys, girls, age 12 to 92.

From the Author
This novel began as a short story for a contest. Eventually I came back to it and developed it into a novel with plans for a series. Bringing in a touch of marital relationship was a subplot that is a pertinent topic in today's world and added interest to a couple who dearly love each other but find themselves disagreeing on so many things. This is a fun book and not intended as a serious mystery. Enjoy!
