Kitty and Jack Bloodworth join the rest of the Metropolis Cruisers Car Club on a trip down to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, to compete in an antique vehicle contest and check out the annual antique car show. Jack promised to find, buy, and restore Kitty's dream vehicle, a hulking 1937 Chrysler four-door sedan, complete with running boards, a spotlight, and suicide doors. But locating the ideal car not only introduces them to new friends but to a bear or a burglar as well. And they'll be in danger until they figure out which it is, bear or burglar, and why they've become a target. Will Kitty and Jack take home a trophy or become a killer's trophy? Why did the elderly car owner, Sassy Bentley, take such a shine to Kitty? Why does her family behave so strangely? And who is stalking Jack and Kitty, hiding in the shadows wherever they go? When one of their new acquaintances is murdered, meeting the chief of police isn't nearly as entertaining for the couple as meeting Jack's idol, country music singer Copper Penny. Fifty-Seven Traveling is a humorous mystery featuring senior citizens, never too old to have fun, who keep the past alive with their vintage cars, poodle skirts, and hot Fifties music, and who avoid at all costs letting their children or grandchildren make them act their ages. Born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, Lonnie Cruse makes her home in Metropolis, Illinois, home of Superman. Fifty-Seven Traveling is the second in her Kitty Bloodworth '57 Mystery Series. She also writes the Metropolis Mystery Series. Lonnie is a member of Sisters in Crime, the Antique Automobile Club of America, and its local chapter SIROVC.
