Murder at the Male Revue
Author: Elizabeth Perona
This time, the group is helping their friend Joy work through her fear of naked men. Ever since her husband left her for another man, Joy has had an extreme aversion to men in the buff. Now that she's dating again, she wants to get over her fear. So, the ladies volunteer to help with a local fundraiser. The entertainment is a troupe of male strippers.
Unfortunately, the night does not go as planned. Not only does most of the catered food end up spilled on the floor (accidents happen when a grandma shockingly sees her grandson gyrating on the stage half-naked being auctioned off as a date to the highest bidder), but a local town councilwoman is murdered backstage.
Who killed Camille Ledfelter? Can the girls discover the naked truth before the killer streaks away?
This book is cute and funny. I loved how the girls deal with life and their age, and how they all band together to sleuth their way through a mystery. The group is a mix of Golden Girls and Murder She Wrote with a little extra murder and mayhem added in for flavor. :)
This is the first book in the series that I have read. I had so much fun with this book that I'm definitely going to read the first two books! This group of feisty, fun-loving, kind-hearted ladies makes for a creatively different cozy series, a lot of laughs, and a darn good mystery!
I hope that I have half this much fun and adventure when I'm in my 70s! :)
