Publisher's Summary

What do a kayak, a wine barrel, and a tractor have in common? They're all weapons in the hands of three determined women!
When the FBI asks the Sleuth Sisters to attend a retreat for "Love-Able Ladies", Barb opts out, unwilling to spend a weekend celebrating the joys of being some man's "little wife". Retta is eager to go since the venue is a swanky vineyard/inn on the Leelanau Peninsula, north of Traverse City, Michigan. Never a fan of large groups of strangers, Faye would rather stay home, but since Retta needs a "wing-woman", she doesn't get a choice.
Their assignment is to assess the possibility a retreat attendee might cooperate in an FBI investigation. Dina Engel is launching a line of high-fashion clothing, and the feds hope that means she's separating herself from her drug king-pin father. The sisters will try to get to know Dina, hint the Bureau is interested in a meeting, and provide her with a safe way to contact them.
Though the setting is lovely and the inn is all that Retta imagined, things quickly go bad. Murder, kidnapping, and a mysterious plot involving Dina's fashion show plunge Faye and Retta into danger. The sisters are separated from each other and threatened with death if they don't cooperate. Retta finds it hard being isolated and alone. Faye has to decide which people around her are enemies and which are innocent retreat attendees. Sensing trouble, Barb shows up, but she soon faces a choice between being shot and drowning in Grand Traverse Bay.
It doesn't seem possible that all three sisters can survive the dream-weekend-turned-nightmare. Still, this is the fifth Sleuth Sisters adventure, and listeners know these women don't give up easily. Sit back, have a glass of wine, and learn a little more about sister power!

I've enjoyed this series and as a result have tolerated the poor performance of the woman who reads for Faye but this reading was especially poor. It's as if she hadn't prepared and was reading the story for the first time and had no opportunity for redos. She paused in the middle of sentences frequently and there was little if any emotion in her voice. Since a large part of this story is related by Faye it made it especially noticeable. Where is the editor/director in this? The poor performance was way too distracting and I won't be listening to any more of this series if she is one of of the readers.
The story was much too unbelievable. I couldn't suspend my disbelief. There were too many situations that were obviously explained away with poor excuses just to further the plot, they weren't realistic enough. This series is falling apart and I will be waiting for reviews when the next installment comes out before I buy it.

Enjoyable series about women detectives over 50

I have really enjoyed this series of books. The three sisters, who are the detectives, are very well written and are enjoyable though very different. The stories are very different and each one is a good listen. This particular book in the series is very good and shows each sisters strengths and weaknesses.
