Hiking the Kindling National Forest is a birthday tradition for the Sullivan siblings—pitching camp, roasting s’mores… a dead body? Not exactly the fun party outdoor guide Andie Sullivan planned for her brother, Kyle. Welp.

When the body is identified as a local who worked at the parks department, Andie decides to put her clue-solving skills to use. Winter tourism is at stake, and if word gets out that Bushwhack has another killer on the loose, she can kiss that sweet revenue goodbye.

Easier said than done. Meanwhile, Sheriff Zac Mars is neck and neck with her on uncovering clues, proving solving the latest murder in town is harder than powering through a mountain bike tour on an energy bar breakfast. Racing against the clock, Andie must uncover evidence to make her mountain community safe for ski bunnies. But as one new plot twist turns into another dead body, Andie learns not everyone likes meddling civilian sleuths. If she’s not fast enough, the killer may find her before she finds them.

My thoughts

Not having read the previous book in this series, I was able to follow along with who was who and how they were related. Not only does Zac live right across the street from Andie, but in their much younger years, she babysat for her younger brother Kyle's best friend. Now Zac is the town sheriff.

Just to fill you in, Andie's best friend also plays a role in this amateur can't-stop-myself from snooping series. 

Andie has a good head on her shoulders. Her business is literally keeping people safe in nature.
She loves her community and her work.  She isn't thrilled that she is developing a "habit" of finding murdered people.  Fortunately she has a strong group of friends, including her brother, who have her back.  The motive for this murder is murky water.  Could it be jealousy based?

A light, quick read good for around a campfire or safe in your own home.
