Trouble at Happy Trails, Book 1 of the Will Travel Trouble series of short cozy mysteries
Minnie Crockwell, recreational vehicle enthusiast and traveler, checks into her allotted space at Happy Trails RV Park in Spokane, Washington, with hopes of a pleasant week of touring the area. By night’s end, a death in the park finds her consoling the deceased man’s widow...or his killer. Whether the dearly departed died by his own hand or whether someone murdered him remains to be seen. It seems the deceased had a lot of character flaws. A lot!
Peregrine Ebenezer Alvord, otherwise known as Ben, is tagging along with Minnie on her travels. That he is an early nineteenth-century ghost is only a minor complication. Ben has the ability to venture unseen where others cannot.
Minnie never imagined herself as an amateur sleuth, but with Ben’s help, she might just be able to discover the source of the Trouble at Happy Trails!
Trouble at Happy Trails is Book 1 of a series of short cozy mystery stories featuring Minnie and Ben. Each story can stand alone, but to avoid extensive repetition of the back story, the books would be best read in order.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This story was quick, and really fun to read! Minnie is a 40-something, single woman who is independent and adventurous enough to sell everything she has and travel the country in her RV. I truly enjoyed her character, as she always seemed to be in the wrong place at the right time (something I could see happening to myself). Her interaction with Ben is playful and fun...what single woman wouldn't want a 19th century ghost talking (with a British accent) and flirting in your ear (as well as being extremely helpful in the crime-solving adventures)? I look forward to more books in this series...I am eager to hear more about Ben and Minnie and where the road takes them!
I like the concept of this new short stories series. Minnie and her 255 year old ghostly traveling companion are starting out on their traveling adventures. The way Minnie and Sam can communicate with one another while being in the company of others is different than other books. At least people around you can not think your crazy talking to yourself. Sam has a very noble British accent which I love. I will continue to follow up on their next stopping point.
I'm a full time RVer so was interested in storyline. This was a good, fascinating read. The ghost adds so much intrigue to the mystery. I'll surely read more by Minnie. I travel with a dog & cat, but a good looking ghost is welcome anytime. There are so many stories along the wayside and this woman will enjoy Minnie's adventures.
