This mystery turns out to be so much more than advertised. (in a very good way) I love the book club aka the geezer squad! From the moment you meet them I was hoping things turned out the way they do in the end.
Looking into cold cases is their thing but when Chris their newest member is kind of reaccused of a cold case and keeps finding himself in the middle of current murders the squad gets busy. Throw in family, relationships, pets and old friends you know things get interesting fast. And don’t forget the ice storm! Really fun book!

This is one of the best cold case books I have read in a long time. Lauren Carr has a very good insight on the thoughts and behaviors of people, in general. She even has the animals down pat. I enjoyed the humor in the story, the mystery, the relationships. I especially enjoyed the relationship between Chris and his mother. The writing moves along so well that I just could not put it down.
I listened to the audiobook version of this and Mike Alger is fantastic! His narration style reminded me of Rex Allen, the narrator of some of the old Disney shows. (Yep, I am old. lol) That made me enjoy his narration all the more!
I highly recommend this book and I look forward to the next one in the series!

I so enjoyed this book by Lauren Carr with its unique character, both human and four legged. Sterling and Thor stole several scenes with their vibrant personalities and antics. I love it when an author is able to include pets into a story in a very realistic and positive manner. The author did an outstanding job weaving mystery, humor, romance into one incredible book. This book is the beginning of a new series and a standalone listen. The characters were developed and thought the story flowed really well. Mike Alger did a great performance with his narration. He was able to give the characters distinguished voices and added the right emotions. The imagery in the book was so well done, as I could envision so many scenes. Without giving away spoilers, I loved how the author wrote the twists in this book and had multiple murders solved, both past and present. With some of the twists, I never saw them coming. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review.
This book was provided free of charge in exchange for an honest review.
This book was interesting in that the concept of a murder/mystery club was presented with a group of retired people solving cold cases.
It involved solving multiple murders and not just a single case. The story was well written and full of excitement. The book kept you interested throughout and you were never bored or had a desire to not finish the book.
The narration was good and fully understandable and with the number of different characters it was fantastic the way it was performed.
I really enjoyed this book and want to try other books by the same author and narrator.
