MY REVIEW

I am so happy to be back on the road with Walt and Betty in Yuma Baby by Ellen Behrens.

I love her feisty, cynical personality. I find it very easy to relate to her. We have a lot in common. Often, I feel like I am walking in her footsteps.

Her husband, Walt, is the steadfast, logical one. He has a ton of patience and that’s a good thing, because her impulsive actions get her in one jam after another. He’s the cook, she does the cleanup, just like Mr Wonderful and I.

I feel the same as she does about felons. They just need to shut up and quit their whining. I mean, they have room and board, insurance…Sometimes it seems like they have more rights than their victim and there is something seriously wrong with that.

On the way into Yuma, their fear for a child’s safety leads them on a wild chase. What about the girl? Who is she? Where is she?

I love her inquisitive nature, but it takes her further than I would go. She gets involved. She feels the need to fix things and it all too often lands her in hot water. Anyone in need who gets involved with her is a lucky person.

Her investigation is murky, keeping the mystery going and the perpetrator hiding in the shadows.

Perfect season for this fun loving couples adventures as they go Rollin, Rollin, Rollin down the…road.

Written in a realistic and easy reading style, with a light tone full of smiles and chills aplenty.

GOODREADS BLURB

A little girl in the back of a car, a lost stuffed toy in the desert, a frantic mother missing a child…. They all seem related, but can Walt and Betty Rollin stay out of trouble long enough to make the connections — before someone ends up dead? Retired, living and traveling full-time in their RV, Walt and Betty are hoping to relax under the winter sun in Yuma, Arizona, until word of their third grandchild’s birth summons them to snowy Ohio. But a chance encounter with a troubled young couple changes everything — and forces them to re-evaluate what “family” really means.

Traveling in Mystery – Pea Body by Ellen Behrens #EllenBehrens

Ellen lives a life many of us envy and I am so happy to be traveling with her to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

My hubby, Mr Wonderful and I have been looking into an RV so we, too, can travel the USA, stopping wherever the mood strikes.

Do you have the wanderlust gene?

Hop on board and let’s go to the Outerbanks of North Carolina and see what’s shakin’.

MY REVIEW

The author, Ellen Behrens, interests me as much as this cozy mystery, so I had to get my hands on Pea Body. The cover represents the calm before the storm that is contained within the pages.

 

I have so much in common with Ellen and her characters, Betty and Walt. They are wanderers, dreamers and list makers. It felt like I was walking in their shoes…Bird watching, taking photographs of everything in sight, hiking, biking, and being a bit antisocial. We even like a lot of the same TV shows…NCIS, CSI, The Closer…but I have never found a dead body, let alone a murder victim.

Happy birthday. Your present…a dead body.

As the story rolls along, the suspect list mounts and the danger closes in around Betty and Walt.

The characters they run into as they investigate come across as authentic people you could meet anywhere, some are friendly and some…not so much. Some are a bit abrasive and annoying, but, when looking closer, you may find you have more in common than you would have thought.

It was easy to relate to the locations…I have visited many small coastal towns and each is unique in its own way. I, too, have hiked many trails through state and national parks, enjoying all the wonderful things they have to offer. I am constantly amazed and inspired by their beauty and the birds and animals that call them home.

If you are looking for an adventure, Pea Body by Ellen Behrens, is a fun and entertaining cozy mystery that shares the wonders of nature, the characters of a small, seasonal coastal town on the outerbanks of North Carolina, the danger of greed in the hands of those that will do anything to get what they want and the freedom and drawbacks of a home on wheels.

GOODREADS BLURB

Who knew birdwatching could lead to such trouble? Betty and Walt Rollin find out when visiting Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. All they want to do is relax and spend a little time away from Talkative Ted and Clingy Caroline, their overbearing neighbors at the RV “resort” where they’ve been staying. But when Betty spots a very non-avian body at the edge of a far pond, she and Walt are drawn into the investigation. What they discover threatens to uncover long-held secrets that could ruin local reputations, and plunges these retired, full-time RVers up to their necks in the deep sand of local politics and passions.
