“Retirement Can Be Murder” by Susan Santangelo:
Santangelo pens an absolute delightful story starring Carol Andrews, unofficial sleuth.
Carol Andrews starts a ball rolling with her worry that her husband will actually do what he’s been threatening to for years—retire. The type that is born to meddle (I mean assist), Carol tricks her husband Jim into an appointment with retirement coach, Davis Rhodes. Not long after their initial meeting, Rhodes ends up dead and Jim is looking awfully good for the murder. But Carol isn’t going to sit back idly and wait for her husband to be arrested. With the help of her childhood friends and even her two children, she manages to unearth information the cops weren’t able to attain. But will it be enough or just be considered circumstantial?
A terrific, light comedic read that will sure to make you laugh while you “investigate” side-by-side with Carol to save her husband from jail.
