~My Reading Journeys
The Killer Outdoors was a hilarious, fun cozy mystery that will keep you guessing.
This shorter cozy packs a punch when it comes to characters and murder . . . I was quite surprised when the murderer was revealed and the whole reason why things happened as they did.
A solid start to a new cozy mystery series . . . Set in a small well described town that is full of a wide range of characters that you can picture in your mind. Then you get the tours with their beautiful settings that make you wish you were there.

Andie Sullivan has taken over her father's adventure shop after his passing but things aren't great and to top it off she has to compete with her ex-husband's adventure company and let's just say he is quite an interesting person. When we meet him he continually refers to himself in the third person. Very odd. And then he has questionable motives when it comes to the house that they once shared even though Andie's father helped her purchase it initially. But then he ends up dead and Andie is the primary suspect. She decides to take matters into her own hands to prove her innocence despite Sherrif Zac Mars wanting her to stay out of the situation. But does he want her to stay out because she is not on the police force or was it for something more? Like his interest in her?
Apparently, when something is suspicious, Andie's nose itches and she seems to have a positive track record when it comes to helping solve crimes. Let's just say her nose itches a lot in this book! She reminds Zac of this often much to his chagrin. But when it all boils down to is that she is a knack for putting clues together and uncovering secrets.
I was quite surprised when the murderer was revealed and the whole reason why things happened as they did. I shouldn't have been shocked at the reveal because the cast of characters is limited, but for some reason, this character wasn't on my radar.
There is a couple of potential love interests for Andie. There is the Park Ranger, Mike, and of course Zac. I think Andie resists against becoming involved with Zac because she watched him when they were younger (she is 5 years older than him) and he is her brother's best friend. But only time will tell who will win out in the end.
This is the first book in the series but there are a lot of references to past crimes that Andie helped solved. I don't think this is a spin-off series, so I was surprised at the number of references to the past when it wasn't tied to another book. But it does set up Andie's ability to uncover clues and suspects.
This is a solid start to a new series and I'll be interested in how the next books continue this story. We give this 4 paws up.
1) plucky amateur sleuth
2) fun supporting characters
3) interesting location(s)
4) fun and intriguing mystery
5) kept me glued to the pages
I'm excited about this series and can't wait to read more.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.
From the first page to the last, I was engaged. Loved Andie, the female lead. Strong and smart, and also relatable and likeable. You won't want to miss this one!
