Rip and Rapella Ripple are staying in the Rest 'n Peace RV Park in Buffalo, Wyoming. They find the park's name ironic after one of its owners is found dead in the forest. While trying to capture a wildlife photo with Rapella's new motion-sensor game camera, in hopes of winning a local photography contest, they capture an image of something much more sinister.
The Ripples find themselves not only involved in a murder case, but also help track down who's responsible for poaching bears in the Bighorn National Forest.

I have now read every cozy mystery by this author. With every new read I become even more enamored with the characters. They are so funny and endearing. You feel as if you are sitting right beside her listening to the story. I'm always surprised by who actually "dunnit". Her writing style is very funny and enjoyable. It is not often a book makes me laugh aloud but Jeanne Glidewell never disappoints so I was already laughing before the second chapter. Can't wait for the next installment. If you've never read her before, I suggest you pick up the first book, keep going and don't look back. You won't regret it.
While I find this read to be entertaining and a fun cozy mystery I do have some huge complaints. Having served as a National Park Ranger I enjoy stories about camping. Sadly, this writer has deep seeded phobias about the wilderness and wild animals that get communicated in the story. Encouraging people to carry firearms into the backcountry is foolhardy and in most areas illegal. I have spent a lifetime in the backcountry without one negative wildlife encounter. To suggest there is a wild animal waiting to kill you the minute you step into the woods is a huge mis-service to her readers. Because that is just nonsense. In a world that is becoming more couch oriented, this writter is doing the public a real dis-service.
