Multi-volume, Florida author, Mary Lu Scholl introduces us to the third volume in the “Trailer Park Travails” series, “Birds, Bees, and RVs”:
Life in a Florida Retirement Mobile Home Park is - complicated. It's spring time and romance is in the air - all around Patty whether she wants it there or not. Everywhere she looks people are in love, or dead - or both. Passions erupt on all sides and of all kinds among neighbors, family, friends and frenemies. Murder happens.
Was it motivated by fear, jealousy, love or simply being crazy? Can Patty even hope to salvage the life around her? Will solving the murder of a friend also result in her getting killed?
I am really enjoying the continuing saga of Patty, AKA Potato Woman to some of the residents in her senior trailer park. No matter how hard she tries to fit in, which isn’t very hard much of the time, the bodies continue to appear. What else is a self-respecting mystery writer to do except figure out whodunit?
The characters are becoming alive for me, I share some of the same issues as they struggle with. Many different senior topics are addressed in the story. The dialogue is touching at times and funny at other times. Action and scene-setting contribute a lot to the story.
I award 4.9 stars to “Birds, Bees, and RVs”! The score would have been higher except for a small handful of spelling errors that the author has corrected. Your reading will be more pleasurable.
