Corrie Black, owner of Black Horse Campground, is looking forward to the upcoming season and seeing old friends. So when long-time guest Marvin Landy is shot dead in his own RV, Corrie is shaken. Former flame Sheriff Rick Sutton is on the case, and he hopes to have it wrapped up quickly, so things can return to normal.
Where did widowed Betty Landry’s son come from, and what was he doing when Marvin was shot? And how were the Westlakes involved with Marvin? Is the suspicious Harley rider, J.D. Wilder, connected in any way? Rick is watching the biker closely, but sparks soon begin to fly between J.D. and Corrie, making her question his innocence. Ultimately, Corrie just wants to make sure she and the other campers are safe until the killer is caught.
End of the Road is the first in the Black Horse Campground mystery series. The characters are well-developed, as is the plot, and Bennett plays fair with the reader, revealing all clues as they are discovered. I really enjoyed this well-written mystery, and I look forward to more of this series.
