Publisher's Summary

Growing up in one of Florida's age-55-plus communities, Charlotte never expected life to be wild. Golf cart racing with her surrogate mothers Mariska and Darla was about as nutty as life got... until she found the hot pawnbroker's mom buried in her backyard.
Talk about making a lousy first impression.
Armed with nothing but her wits, Pineapple Port's questionable cast of characters and a growing crush, Charlotte is determined to solve the mystery of Declan's mother's murder.
Hey, at least this guy's skeletons aren't in his closet.

Laugh your way to the murder solution!

When I started this book, I was annoyed that the author didn't know a spade from a trowel, and it seemed as if the main character was beyond unemployed. But then I got into it and found the book too much fun to be hung up on such silliness, especially since she really did have a cottage industry. This book is AWFULly funny! Although the publisher's summary covers the main plot basics, it will not prepare you for the fun! Like the friend's grandson from Atlanta who thinks he can charm her into bed by telling her how wonderful he is and later shows up at her home with an armful of booze! Or when she has a headache and takes the two pills on the counter that she THINKS are aspirin! Lots of snark and lots of groans and gigglesnorts.
Rosemary is an excellent audio-performer, but just doesn't snark well. Not a good fit here, but would be excellent in many other novels. Her voice is pleasant, cadence and flow are good, but not in the snark department.
I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review

Laugh-aloud funny!

I listen to a lot of audiobooks, in many different genres, from chick lit to thriller, non fiction to sweeping historical fiction. Pineapple Lies is different from all of them! Its premise (a murder mystery/romance) set in a 55+ retirement community was terrific, and the humour was great - a difficult feat to pull off when you're writing about the discovery of the bones of the mother of the man you are falling in love with!

It was a great easy listen - fun, not too demanding. It might have been a grisly read, but was actually quite uplifting.

Amy Vansant has the older characters down to a T - she has clearly spent some time observing people in such communities. They are likeable, sharp, each with their own foibles, and they provide a magnificent backdrop to the unfolding tale. The heroine, Charlotte, has plenty strengths and weaknesses. When she unthinkingly swallowing what she thinks are headache pills, a hysterically funny romantic scene results ... The plot twists are credible and not too complicated and kept me guessing to the last.

I worry about body parts that seem to have a life of their own (such as 'wandering hands') and there were rather a lot of eye darting everywhere – which conjured up some strange visions. That apart, I loved the book and welcome the fact there are more to follow.

I was given an audio copy in exchange for an honest review.
