The Description

A Southwest Exposure Mystery: Book 3
Publication Date: May 13, 2021

Welcome to Bushwhack, New Mexico: home to tourists, the great outdoors, and murder…

Camping for spring break should be a piece of cake for outdoor guide Andie Sullivan. She has her best friend and the sheriff tagging along as chaperones for the Wilderness Explorers. It should be all S’mores and ghost stories…but then Vivian is attacked and they discover a corpse.

Dang. The campsite went up in smoke.

With everything at stake, Andie must find answers about the attack—she has to dig deep into a community she’s called home since birth by asking all the right questions, sometimes at not the right time. As she tracks down clues to a suspect, Andie stumbles on a secretive treasure hunting group in Bushwhack. But one wrong move and Andie could become her own buried treasure.



The Review

Raiders of the Campsite is the third book in the Southwest Exposure Mystery series by Jodi Linton. One doesn’t need to read the previous books in the series as the author provides enough of a backstory that the reader can keep up with the plot and understand what’s going on in the book.

I’ve been reading these cozy mysteries since I started reviewing for this site, and I have to admit that I’ve gotten to really like these types of books. I’ve developed a genuine fondness for them.  

I adored the flirtation between Andie and Zac. If I had a man like him flirting with me, I’d get all flustered, and my face would be bright red.  

I loved how tight-knit the main characters were. They were a team and helped each other when they were in danger.

Raiders of the Campsite kept my attention throughout, entertained me, and made me laugh. What more can you ask for of a cozy mystery?

Ms. Linton has written a cute, funny, romantic mystery story that the reader can cozy up with when they need something to entertain them for a few hours.

There are several more books in the Southwest Exposure Mystery series that serve up mystery and mayhem in the tiny town of Bushwack. 

I hope readers consider picking up this book. It’s totally worth it.

I’ve reviewed before for the now closed Romancing the Book. I love reading whether it’s an ebook or a good old-fashioned book book. The smell of a book is such a nice smell. I work with handicapped adults in my real life and I live in New York State.
