A trial run in a retirement community turns into an exciting adventure as three seniors slip on their sleuthing shoes and uncover inconspicuous clues.

About Christmas Treasures, A Cozy Retirement Mystery:

Mary Louise, Pearl, and Opal host a Christmas Open House at Cozy Retirement Community. No one anticipates a problem until someone mentions hostess gifts and the holiday spirit diminishes. Hours later, a new resident is dead and most tenants are suspects. As a heavy snowstorm bears down on East Tennessee, the community’s occupants brace for a long and fearsome winter’s night.

Excerpt from Bygone Days, Book 2 in A Cozy Retirement Mystery:

“Mary Louise! Opal! Come quick!” With her pink fuzzy socks lacking traction, Pearl slid to a stop. All heads turned. The activities room was packed with card players but Pearl provided more entertainment as she hobbled around like she needed to find a restroom. “Follow me! We have a dead one!”

“Don’t get up.” Mary Louise folded her poker hand and smiled at those who offered a kind look of understanding. Pearl had developed a melodramatic reputation and most of the community’s residents knew her by name.

“We’ll be right back.” Opal slowly rose from her chair. She reassembled her lucky turquoise bonnet that matched absolutely nothing before she fell in line behind Mary Louise. “She means a live one.” 

“I know,” Mary Louise grumbled.

Pearl motioned for them. “Hurry.” Ten or fifteen steps later, she stopped at the edge of the foyer. “I had it right the first time.”

“Hope not.” Opal kept her voice low. “Ya scared everyone half to death.”

“Must’ve been what happened to him.” Pearl pointed and sighed. “With friends like me, you two need more enemies.”
