What a great concept. This book was such a fun read. I couldn't put it away. I listened every chance I got. You will love this quirky take on a senior with memory loss who takes his life in his hands to solve a murder. I loved this book! Enjoy!
There is no other book like this. This story is unique and a fascinating take on Senior sleuthing.
When he would wake up every morning and have to begin figuring out who everyone was all over each day.
I would have listened to it all. It was difficult to put it down. I listened in the car to and from my destinations every day. I couldn't wait to get back to it.
This author knows how to weave a tale. What a concept and to make it work so well.
I have always loved to read, and now I really enjoy listening to my books as well!!
I enjoy light mysteries--and this looked like a fun listen. It was okay, just not my favorite.
The story had a few situations running through it (like the main character who lost his memory every night and had to daily re-learn everything that has been happening) that became kind of tedious. The narration was good, and this may be a good series for some, but not for me.
I found this story lacking in depth. I never felt connected to the characters and lost interest in the story.
