Four ex-cops in a retirement paradise. Sure they’ll rest…when the killer is caught.After a long career as a police officer, Moira hopes a move to a luxury retirement community will mean she can finally leave the detective work to the youngsters and focus on a quieter life. But it turns out The Homestead is far from paradise. When she discovers the body of a young woman floating in one of the pools, surrounded by thousands of dollar bills, her crime-fighting instinct kicks back in and she joins up with fellow ex-cops—and new neighbours—Philip, Lizzie and Rick to investigate the murder.With the case officers dropping ball after ball, Moira and the gang take matters into their own hands, turning into undercover homicide investigators. But the killer is desperate to destroy all the evidence and Moira, Philip, Lizzie and Rick soon find themselves getting in the way—of the murderer and the police.Just when they think they can finally relax, they discover that someone has infiltrated their ‘safe’ community. Can they hunt down the murderer and get back to retiring in peace? And after all the excitement, will they want to?
Enjoyed this book as it was entertaining and a quick read. Hoping there is a Book 2. Makes you wonder if these retirement communities are all they claim to be.
This book not only kept my atttentiom but had twists and turns that I couldn’t forsee. I found this scenario a lot more like real life than most mysteries; in that the story involves many people on the periphery. It’s well worth reading.
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started the book. It stays kind of slow, and by luck, I was thinking this was going to be one of those MC who did a lot of whining and not any growing (a sad trend of modern fiction). But one I made it to the60%mark, I realized this was going to be a proper MC who exhibits growth through the journey. It is a good read.
This was a fun read! I enjoyed the retired foursome solving the crime and getting into mischief. A lighthearted read for all crime fiction lovers.
This was a good, fun book. It had suspense, action, and a satisfying ending. The characters were realistic, and the conclusion made sense. It was a quick and easy read.
Interesting characters who are incredibly human and imperfect. Complex plot lines for a “cozy mystery “. It’s 2:00am and I just had to finish this book. I can’t wait to read the next in the series.
