Scott Chevalier – part campervan-surfer, part Crocodile Dundee – gets a dose of the Agatha Christies in this light mystery series…
Book 1 in the Campervan Bushman Mystery Series
Ex-surf champ and model, Scott Chevalier, isn’t just a pretty face!
With an enviable campervan-surfie lifestyle, and a handful of impressive bush skills learnt from his grandfather, producer Frank Buckler sees great potential in the young Aussie and hires him to host a British TV show called The Campervan Bushman.
Unfortunately, things don’t start out too well when Scott arrives on location in England. One minute, he has to contend with the freezing North Sea, and the next, he’s in danger of being reported for popping off the local wildlife.
When things hit rock bottom and the director dies, no one suspects it could be anything but an accident – at least not to start with. But as the evidence begins to mount, Scott realises that the cold English climate isn’t the only killer around.
Each book in the Campervan Bushman series is a light cosy-style mystery with an edge of humour, a sense of adventure, and a hint of romance.
Dive into A Deep Thing
A Deep Thing by A.K. Smith is a high concept thriller–think The Da Vinci Code of the deep–that grabs you from the beginning and doesn’t let go. A roller coaster ride of romance, suspense, mystery and intrigue, this page-turner surprises at every turn and offers a stunning ending you’ll never suspect. I never heard of cenotes–magical underground caves in the Yucatan Peninsula so it was fascinating to learn about diving in these beautiful sinkholes. This book really packs a punch. It has everything from conspiracy theories to corporate greed and smart writing that doesn’t disappoint.
–Marilyn Baron, Author of Stumble Stones: A Novel
