Summary

Summary

Here's a wry, witty, cozy mystery in the tradition of Carolyn Hart's "Henrie O." mysteries, featuring a feisty senior sleuth who finds blackmail and a mysterious death at the senior-citizen complex she just moved into. In an effort to clear her name, May teams up with a goup of flimflammed, wildly wicked seniors to solve the murder and recover their dignity and their money. Death for Dessert will have cozy readers cheering for this new mystery heroine and riveted to the very last page.

Senior sleuth May List discovers blackmail and murder in the geriatric community she joins. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved


Library Journal Review

What a witch this woman is-but circumstances render her agreeably so. May List flees a philandering doctor-husband, winds up in an "active senior living" facility miles away, and encounters a bizarre group of elderly cohorts. Everyone warns her away from the outrageous Mrs. Berkowitz, who seems to know all May's secrets. Just as May determines the woman is a blackmailer, someone kills Mrs. Berkowitz. The wryly self-castigating May turns her vitriolic humor to constructive purposes as she goads the others into sleuthing and herself into self-appreciation. A highly recommended first mystery that is being compared to Carolyn Hart's "Henrie O" stories. For cozy fans. (c) Copyright 2010.
