Publisher's Summary

Young, overworked medical intern Sarah James has no time for sleuthing. Her elderly neighbors, the spunky Fog Ladies, have nothing but time.

When, one by one, old ladies die in their elegant apartment building in San Francisco, Sarah assumes the deaths are the natural consequence of growing old. The Fog Ladies assume murder.  

Mrs. Bridge falls off a stool cleaning bugs out of her kitchen light. Mrs. Talwin slips on bubbles in the bathtub and drowns. Suddenly, the Pacific Heights building is turning over tenants faster than the fog rolls in on a cool San Francisco evening.

Sarah resists the Fog Ladies' perseverations. But when one of them falls down the stairs and tells Sarah she was pushed, even Sarah believes evil lurks in their building.

Can they find the killer before they fall victim themselves?

First time narrator for me

Audiobook Review… This is the first book that I have listened to Robin LaRee Berry has narrated. I love finding a new narrator and look forward to listening to more of her work. Robin was able to take the story that Susan McCormick wrote and bring it to life. She took a story that I did not know and pulled me right into it. I could hear the emotions that the characters felt while understanding why they were feeling that way as I listened to the story.

Book Review… This is a mystery, a murder mystery actually. Yet, it had a different feel that others I have read. The thriller part of it was more relaxed, less electrifying, less scary. I felt like because most of the characters were “old” that I struggled to connect as much as I would have. The Fog Ladies was just a story to me, I did not become invested in the outcome although I was curious as to when they would figure out who was killing the tenants.

I did not read The Fog Ladies, I listened to it in audiobook form. Maybe because I could hear the emotions, I did find myself taking extra time to listen to one more chapter, a few more minutes. The plot was easy to follow and liked how easy the story was to follow.

The Fog Ladies are a Delight

I truly enjoyed this version of a cozy mystery, where the amateur sleuth isn't one character, but a whole pack of busybody retired women and an overworked medical intern, Sarah. I sympathize with Sarah, who is struggling with keeping up with the demanding schedule all medical interns go through before becoming licensed doctors. When she gets home, her apartment building is full of elderly ladies who want to ask for medical advice, as well as share their theories as to why so many of the tenants have been dying.

It eventually becomes evident that their suspicions aren't just wild theories, but insightful observations. The story has a delightful amount of red herrings to suspect, as well as a satisfying and surprising conclusion.

A great introduction to The Fog Ladies

Sarah moves in to a well established building where many of the tenants have lived for many years. This tight knit group of ladies accept Sarah into their group affectionately known as The Fog Ladies. When a series of deaths and strange events hit the residents it’s up to the ladies to figure out what’s going on before it’s too late.

Susan McCormick did a great job of building up the characters and their relationships. I enjoyed how the mystery unfolded… there were enough twists to keep me guessing.

Robin LaRee Berry brought the story to life with her performance. She brought out each characters personality perfectly.

The Fog Ladies

"I couldn't die; I still had an unused coupon." This is type of humor you will find in this fun book.

A group of elderly women live in a high-rise apartment building in San Francisco. Some of their apartments have amazingly beautiful views of the Bay. These women have been getting together to play cards and socialize for many years. When several of them die under unusual circumstances, they begin to wonder if these deaths are truly due to old age or if there is something more sinister at work.

Sarah is a young intern, living in an apartment in the building provided by the Hospital. She becomes an honorary Fog Lady and soon becomes fast friends with several of them. Two of the ladies become involved with a young unmarried mother and soon find themselves in charge of a baby. Then, you have a grieving widower whose journal falls into the hands of the nosiest of the women, a young maintenance man who seems to be spending lots of money, an ankle-biter of a dog, and a religious zealot and you have some great characters.

The author has done a great job with her descriptions of the area and the interactions between the characters. Some you will love, some not so much, but all are delightful in their own way. Sarah's role as a young intern is full of angst and uncertainty and this part is well-written and very believable.

The narrator did a great job and her performance added a lot to this book. I look forward to reading more books in this cozy series. "Oh dear, Oh dear!"

Excellent

A delightful story Sarah overworked going thru medical school. Doesn’t have time to indulged in what her neighbors enjoy doing is sleuthing.
Older ladies are dying and they say murder. These women have lived in these apartments for years and enjoy seeing The Fog roll in. They are unique, witty and nosy, and loving bickering between them.
A lot going on and enjoyable to the end.
Given audio for my voluntary review

“The Fog Ladies” is a winner!

The story grabs your attention from the very beginning. I found myself enthralled and unable to stop listening until the very end!
What on earth is happening to the residents of the apartment building Sarah has recently moved into? Is the stress of her new job making her lose her mind? A most intriguing mystery is taking place, and it’s up to Sarah to solve it. Wonderful characters abound as you fall in love with The Fog Ladies.
