Getting Old is Murder
Gladys Gold known as Gladdy is aged 75 and an avid mystery reader. When her best friend, Francie, dies eating chocolate cake, Gladdy begins to suspect that there is a serial killer on the lose in her Florida retirement community. The story is amusing with all the antics of the elder generation as well as senior romance in bloom. The only shortfall is that all the minor characters have not been fleshed out sufficiently so there are moments of confusion. But overall, a thoroughly pleasant cozy for a snowy cold afternoon.
