Thanks, Barbara! I wish I could write faster, too! My ideas are backing up in my head. : ) I wish my brain had a USB port where I could automatically download the stories from my mind to the page. I'm so glad you enjoyed the book! I'm hard at work on the second one, A Trip with Trouble.

I LOVED getaway with Murder. The second book can't be published soon enough. Can you write any faster? ;-)

Thanks so much, Gerrie! So glad you enjoyed the book, and your kind words put a big smile on my face. The second book in the series, A Trip with Trouble, will release next fall. I'm looking forward to it, too!
  Gerrie
I thoroughly enjoyed Getaway With Murder. It was a fun read with interesting characters and a clever mystery. I hope Ms. Kelly writes more soon! Misty is relatable, smart and funny and the setting makes me want to book a room at the lodge.
