Q: What makes the Campervan Bushman series special?
A: Scott Chevalier may have a typical Aussie laid-back attitude to life, but he's just as capable of springing into action when trouble strikes! He's lived his life in two worlds. He's been a surf champ who's enjoyed travelling round in his campervan, but he's also spent time with his grandfather in the bush and learnt a good handful of survival skills. Just as well! Because some of these come in handy as the mysteries unravel.
Although Scott's the main character, Penny and Red, his sidekick crew filming the Campervan Bushman TV show, all work together to try and solve the puzzling events that take place. So the series is built around a trio rather than a lone wolf amateur sleuth.
Q: Who is likely to enjoy the books?
A: The mysteries are lighter than your average 'cosy', but if you love books in the genre, and the sound of Scott's easy-going yet adventurous character appeals, then you should definitely give the series a whirl.
A romantic thread runs through the series, but there are no sex scenes. So, coupled with only mild expletive usage, the stories would also be suitable for late teen/young adult audiences.
Q: What order should the books be read in?
A: Here is the suggested order:
Book 1 – Killer Climate
Book 2 – Deathbed of Roses
Book 3 – Criminal Intent
You can read WIPEOUT, the series prequel, at any point along the way if you'd like to know more about Scott's backstory.
Q: So, why should readers give these books a try?
A: Not only is Scott's world is a fascinating one, but a nice blend of curiosity, adventure, humour and romance forms an engaging backdrop to the mysteries in the series.
There's plenty of light-hearted banter between Scott and Red (who's a techie, and loves to skulk about & investigate things despite being afraid of his own shadow most of the time), and a romantic interest in Penny (who's the trio's voice of reason & logic, and resilient in the face of certain events that come her way).
Top that off with a brand new location for each book as the crew move on to film the next episode of the Campervan Bushman TV show, and you're bound to stay entertained.

FAUX REVIEWS by PSEUDO-CELEBRITIES
Here are just a few of the author's infamous 'faux reviews' of the spurious kind for the Campervan Bushman series…
Having been stirred into buying an RV motorhome after reading Alannah's Campervan Capers books, I decided to give this little fiction story a whirl. Well, hey, not only has she succeeded in inspiring me big time once again on the campervan front, but these mysteries are just bursting with the kinds of adventures we should – quite frankly – be featuring in my Mission Improbable movies!
Scott might come across as a surf bum, but those of us who know him take our bush hats off to him. He can teach ya a thing or two about flavourin' up a crocodile steak, I can tell ya… Although, of course, crocs are a protected species nowadays, so I don't go hunting for them any more… Honest!
Crocodile Dundee ('Mick' to his mates)
