Summary

A trip down memory lane is fine if you don't stumble on a body. Frannie Shoemaker and her friends camp at Old Dam Trail State Park near one of Donna Nowak's childhood homes. They take in the county fair, reminisce at a Fifties-Sixties dance, and check out old hangouts. But the present intrudes when a body surfaces. Donna becomes the focus of the investigation and Frannie wonders if the police shouldn’t be looking closer at the victim’s many enemies. A traveling goddess worshiper, a mystery writer and the Sisters on the Fly add color to the campground.

Down to earth book!

I love fantasy so I tend to read a lot of them. Whenever I want I change I like to read or listen to cozy murder mysteries and this book is one of them.
I actually really liked this book more then I expected. I think it is more to do with the friendship the characters have as well as solving the mystery. There is a more warm feeling to it. I also like the fact that there are funny moments as well.

Michelle Babb does and excellent job here in narrating the book. I find she gives the book something more and her voice suits this book and the characters.
I would recommend this book to everyone!

"Can you folks tell me what's going on here?"

Any additional comments?

It was not unreasonable for Agent Sanchez to suggest that Frannie and Larry and their camping friends were "a magnet for crime." They certainly do seem to have exciting camping holidays. This trip they have selected a camp site by a lake with a legend, that of a woman who walks at night searching for her drowned baby whose body was never recovered after a boating accident. Well, a body is found, but not that of the baby.

This is another fun, mystery and detection story in the Frannie Shoemaker series, where, besides murder and some mayhem we also meet her delightful (and irritating) friends as well as some quirky others also camping . This time there is Rosemary, a well known author, contemplating her next book, a barefoot Goddess worshipper, and a group of women fishermen, Sisters on the Fly. The portraits of all of them are delicious, as are the Frannie party portraits themselves, and the whole is served up in a swirl of camping fun, walking, dancing, boating, shopping, cooking and eating - and gossip. And there is the murder mystery, too.
As always, Michelle Babb's performance is perfect, her warm voice reading at a pace ideally suited to that of the text. Although her dialogue voices are only slightly differentiated it really doesn't matter here as it is always obvious who is speaking and it is the tone which captures the humour or pathos of the situation. Ms.Babb is a pleasure to hear.

All of the Frannie Shoemaker books are enjoyable, light, warm listens but for me this is one of Karen Massed Norman's best so far. Have a great holiday with the camping gang and see if you can unravel the mystery before the ending. Great fun.

Volume 4

Have you listened to any of Michelle Babb’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes I listened to the audiobooks in this series narrated by Michelle Babb

Any additional comments?

Every time I listen to one of the books in this series I want to go camping! Frannie, her husband Larry and their friends manage to get involved in another crime while camping at Old Dam Trail State Park. Each book in this series builds upon the different people in the stories and this one focuses more on Donna

The Lady of the Lake

What made the experience of listening to The Lady of the Lake the most enjoyable?

Michelle Babb's relaxed way of narrating. The way she brings the characters to life and doesn't try to be overly dramatic allows the story to flow.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lady of the Lake?

When it appeared the Lady of the Lake might have actually been spotted

Which character – as performed by Michelle Babb – was your favorite?

I liked the barefoot woman. Her character was so much different than the others and I felt like she added a little something extra to the story.
