Will Travel for Trouble Boxed Set (#10-12), by Minnie Crockwell (author), Michelle Babb (narrator)

Minnie Crockwell, July 2019

Minnie and her ghost companion, Ben, who died while a member of the Lewis & Clark expedition, continue their travels, and continue to encounter untimely deaths that Minnie can't help investigating, and that Ben naturally helps her with, even as he tries to dissuade her from doing anything too dangerous.

In their first adventure included in this set, they're still in Alabama, but have moved on to a little beach house called Pelican Penthouse in Fort Morgan, due to the lack of any open spots in any RV parks. This time they don't find a dead person, which is a nice change of pace, right? Except they discover an unplugged freezer full of shark fins, and this of course leads to all sorts of trouble, including, of course, a dead body.

When that case is behind them, they head for a new RV park and a theme park to relax at. The death there at first appears to be just a an accident due to poor maintenance on a ride. Once that adventure is done, Minnie has new plans. She's getting stressed with all these unfortunate events, and briefly considers settling down. Instead, she and Ben go shopping for a smaller RV and an SUV able to pull it, in place of Minnie's big rig and towed car. And then they are off to Yellowstone. What could possibly go wrong at Yellowstone, right?

These books are a little bit silly, and a lot of fun. There is progress in Ben and Minnie's relationship. You might wonder what relationship progress with ghost might look like, but really, their only problem has been that Ben is so completely insubstantial. That has started to change...though only slowly, and just a little bit so far. And it's not all upside for them.

I really like Ben and Minnie, and Michelle Babb is a very enjoyable narrator.


I received a free copy of this audiobook from the narrator, and am reviewing it voluntarily.
