Okay, full disclosure: Carole is a friend of mine. Howevever, don't let that stop you from believing me when I tell you that this book was a really fun read! I enjoyed it immensely.
It is a clean mystery that kept me guessing until the end. And Carole's wit really came to life in the characters. There is one pair especially, and ideologically mismatched pair that had me laughing out loud.
One of Carole's gifts as a writer is the ability to write eccentric characters who are very funny--but also very realistic and dimensional.
The book is set in Yellowstone, and Carole does a wonderful job bringing the setting to life. I felt like I was walking those trails myself.
"Who is Trying to Silence Penny?
Penny Thorton's dreams of being a park ranger start to unravel her
first week on the job when she finds a dead bear in Yellowstone's
backcountry. Shots are fired as she runs away, but once she tells
the authorities, all evidence evaporates. Penny's aunt Iris, who is
bent on eradicating an invasive species of daisy from the park, puts
that mission on hold when more bears are killed and she becomes
entangled in the mystery. After several attempts on Penny's life, she
and Iris learn to trust no one not even their friends."
Seriously, this book was a lot of fun!
