Blog Tour, Character Interview, Review, & Giveaway for The Hiker's Guide To Murder by Jodi Linton


Character Name: Andie Sullivan
1)      Tell us a little bit about yourself--both something we learn from [the story] and something that readers might not guess? Give me a good true crime documentary and I’ll binge it over going out on Friday night. I also have a knack for stumbling on dead bodies while adventure seeking. It’s a bad habit, but one I thoroughly enjoy solving.
2)      How did you first meet your writer? I met Jodi Linton while in New Mexico when she was vacationing with her family. We were in the same rafting group. From there, Jodi went back to Texas and my story was written.
3)      Want to dish about him/her? Are we talking about Sheriff Zac Mars. If so, all I can say I used to babysit him. And yes, I’m five years older. And no, we’re only friends, no matter what he says.
4)      Why do you think that your life has ended up being in a book? I bet some of my crazy stories from all my guided rafting tours got back to the author, and she decided I’d make a great book character.
5)      Who's your favorite character? Why?  Kyle Sullivan. If my brother read this question didn’t see his name as the answer, he’d want to know what he said during our last fight to piss me off.
6)      Who's your least favorite character? Why? I like mostly everyone in Bushwhack. I guess I could say anyone who becomes a suspect could go on my least favorite list.
What's next for you? I’m going on a camping trip with the Wilderness Explorers. Every spring break I take the young kids camping to let them learn about nature and the beautiful national parks Bushwhack has to offer.

About The Hiker's Guide to Murder


Cozy Mystery 2nd in Series 
Independently Published (February 1, 2021)
  Print length: ~200 pages 
 Digital ASIN: B08D28ZCMB 

Hiking the Kindling National Forest is a birthday tradition for the Sullivan siblings—pitching camp, roasting s’mores… a dead body? Not exactly the fun party outdoor guide Andie Sullivan planned for her brother, Kyle. Welp.

When the body is identified as a local who worked at the parks department, Andie decides to put her clue-solving skills to use. Winter tourism is at stake, and if word gets out that Bushwhack has another killer on the loose, she can kiss that sweet revenue goodbye.

Easier said than done. Meanwhile, Sheriff Zac Mars is neck and neck with her on uncovering clues, proving solving the latest murder in town is harder than powering through a mountain bike tour on an energy bar breakfast. Racing against the clock, Andie must uncover evidence to make her mountain community safe for ski bunnies. But as one new plot twist turns into another dead body, Andie learns not everyone likes meddling civilian sleuths. If she’s not fast enough, the killer may find her before she finds them.

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

I think I forgot how hilarious And ie is but this book managed to remind me quite well. She is on a hike with her brother for his birthday which is something they do every year. He changed things a little though when he chooses to go cave spelunking in the Canyon. Andie just has to repel first but things go haywire when a fault line rumbles for the first time in a really long time, she falls, and manages to find a dead body. Having no plans to stay out of it she makes a bet with Zac as to who solves it first. There are some surprising consequences along the way leading some twists. Makes for a great read that showcases Annie's spunky personality and can do attitude. A total must read. I totally loved it so I give it 5/5 stars.
