Rita Moreau's 3rd book in this hilarious series...


More antics as Mabel Gold and her friend — spirit — ghost - whatever you want to call Irma, gets Mabel into yet another mystery. Things can go bad quickly in the Badlands...


Everything about Mabel’s golden years has been a surprise. The divorce, Irma the ghost haunting her vintage camper, dead guys whose murders Mabel must help Irma solve every stop of the way.


Mabel and her ghostly roommate Irma, along with friend Lili and her retired homicide detective husband Bob, have made it to the Badlands. From the get-go, they were smack dab in the middle of another murder.


Ralph, an old Marine buddy asks Bob, to investigate the death of his son Danny. His death has been ruled an accident. Ralph didn’t agree. He’s sure his son was pushed off top of Mount Rushmore. Right near the Hall of Records, or as it’s called in the movies and YouTube, the Secret Chamber. But why?


Did Danny, a skilled rock climber and much sought-after guide, find long-lost gold?


Were Danny’s last words–those of Crazy Horse–Hokahey–it’s a good day to die–leave a clue as to his demise?


Will Irma run out of costumes from her ghostly cyberspace closet before they solve the murder?


Will Irma’s new friend Poker Alice–the wild west’s famous gambler and brothel owner help Mabel and Irma figure out what happened to Danny?


And what about Cindy Lou and her side-kick Top Gun Colonel Clark–did they have a secret that Danny uncovered that fatal night outside the Secret Chamber?

Can Mabel and Irma catch the killer before Mabel joins Irma crashing through the Pearly Gates?


Murder in the Badlands is the high spirited third book in the hilarious Ghost & the Camper Kooky Mystery series. If you like golden girl sleuths, zany characters, and sardonic humor, then you’ll love this kooky mystery.


Hoping you like camping!

 Solving mysteries and ghost hunting become a family affair in this third book of the wacky camping trip.

Mabel and her best friend Lili are still attempting to help a ghost solve murders to earn credit with St. Peter and move beyond purgatory. The ghost, Irma, is a blast from the past with a wardrobe to match.
She decides that she also needs some ghostly pals to help solve murders, especially here around Mount Rushmore. This is sacred land but it hides many secrets.
Tensions rise as the group arrives for the fourth of July Independence celebrations.
They are happy to hear Mabel's son and his intended spouse are arriving but then MORE family shows up. Some of whom have ties to a different sort of Family.

A wonderful cast of characters and interesting living and sleeping arrangements populate this hilarious series. There may be some other sort of paranormal activity developing.
I don't want to give too much away, but even as they figure out pieces of the puzzle, overall things become more complicated and entangled.
It has my attention captured and I can't wait to see in what new directions this "summer trip" takes us.
