Just because she's made AARP doesn't mean she's DOA. Take it from 60-plus Margot Manning. The family vultures are chomping at the bit to grab her considerable fortune, so they petition to become her conservators. But they haven't a clue how strong she still is. Currently, that means solving some highly suspicious deaths.
Feisty Old Ladies is the razor-sharp and riotous crime novel by Cynthia Weitz that shadows one irrepressible senior who finds herself the reluctant resident of Shady Palms life-care center. The captivating socialite may still be the toast of the tony set, but after Margot stumbles in her stilettos and is sent to recuperate at Shady Palms, they just may have her by the Achilles heels.
She counts on support from her handsome Danish beau until he fetches an adorable young lawyer - ostensibly to help. Margot repays him in kind with her own new flirtations.
At Shady Palms, Margot meets other formidable femmes, and when she starts poking into the confounding demises of two pet patients, these gal pals join her in unmasking the culprit. This mystery offers double doses of entertaining antics and a refreshing take on just how fierce and fun life is after age 60!
This book had a slow start for me, but once I got into it I really enjoyed the ride. It was fun imagining ladies my mom's age involved in such shenanigans.
I received this book free of charge from the publisher for an unbiased review.
