A lol mystery

What did you love best about Retirement Homes Are Murder?

This had so many LOL moments.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

No, but it did make me wonder how in the world he could keep digging himself in deeper.

What does Jerry Sciarrio bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He brought the characters to life.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Would love to have, but it did make a great traveling companion. My husband and I both loved it.

Any additional comments?

It made my traveling go so much faster.

This reminded me of the movie 50 first dates but set as a murder mystery instead.

It was an engaging story, that had me cracking up throughout. You can't help but to fall in love with these old people. I hope to have as much fun as they do when I get to be there age.
