Publisher's Summary

What do you do when you fall through the loopholes in the system and all you have to rely on are your own wits?

Lois and Sophie have scrambled and saved for years, planning for their retirement in Florida. But now they've lost it all, and Lois' sniper training from her long-ago service as an Army nurse leads to a desperate career choice.

When Detective Morgan Holiday is assigned to investigate a spate of sniper killings, it's just one more stress point in her already overburdened life. But as she grows increasingly solitary - coping with an Alzheimer’s-plagued mother who refuses to be confined to a nursing home, and a police partner counting the days to retirement - she comes to realize that these murders may cut close to home.

A modern morality tale of justice, retribution, and women who refuse to be politely invisible.

    "Could Not Stop Listening - LOVED IT!"

    This was a great book and on so many levels, I loved it. I listened to the whole thing within 2 1/2 days - while driving, doing work around the house, or standing around waiting for something to get started.

    I loved all the main characters (and was rooting for all of them in their various endeavors) and the depictions of them by the narrator. She was outstanding and helped this good book be even better.

    Story
    "Old ladies as hired killers?!"

    I really enjoyed this book and the premise is original. However, in my opinion, they went a little overboard with the lesbian theme. That said, I would read a sequel, if there is one, because the story is entertaining.

    Story
    "Exploitation"
    Any additional comments?

    It is totally ridiculous to use lesbianism the way the author did. I appreciate the exploration of the heroine's sexuality, but there's no reason to exploit it by mentioning lesbian authors. So what if the character or author is a lesbian? Just write a good story and be done with it.

    "Adequate; but didn#t know it was lesbian lit"
    Would you try another book from Martha Miller and/or Bernadette Dunne?

    nope


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Bernadette Dunne?

    Th narrator suited the book, but I didn#t


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    May like it if you are involved in the lifestyle


    Any additional comments?

    too much time spent on lesbian lifestyle & not enough on the story
