Julia Ross is a 48-year-old divorcee who decides to completely upend her life.
A year after her divorce, Julia sells everything (including the house), turns her minivan into a camper, and heads to an idyllic beachfront state park in Florida. What is supposed to be a month of sunbathing, hiking, biking, and self-care, however, turns into a murder investigation when a camper is found dead in his RV.
At first, Julia doesn’t want to get involved. After all, she’s at the beach to relax. But her new camping friends, Dottie and Penelope, insist she help them find the murderer. They believe the Sheriff has arrested the wrong man, one of their birding club friends. And they believe Julia is precisely the right person to prove their friend innocent and find the real killer.
The Case of the Fugitive Flamingo is the first book in the Julia Lives in a Van series. It’s a light-hearted, cozy murder mystery with a delightful cast of characters, which includes Julia and her two new camping friends, Dottie and Penelope, and also Toby, an abandoned pup Julia found on her drive down to Florida. This book is safe for anyone at any age to read. It has no swearing, no explicit content, and no gore. Yes, there’s a murder to solve, but this is all done against a backdrop of exquisite natural beauty, budding friendships, and of course, birdwatching.
If you like cozy mysteries with lovable characters and a fun murder to solve, then you’ll love L. C. Richards’ brand-new mystery, The Case of the Fugitive Flamingo.
