    A Delight!

    The Happy Haven Assisted Living Facility is really hopping when one of their residents, Bob Weiderley, wins at Bingo. A whole dollar bill is his, but when he goes up to collect his winnings, he passes out and winds up in a coma. His fellow residents are stunned. Bob has been in such good shape, even though he is nearly 90.

    90-year-old Essie Cobb isn't buying that the excitement got to Bob. There has to be more to the story than that and she intends to find out. Along with her good friends Opal, Marjorie and Fay, they investigate the situation and find much to be suspicious of and a surprising amount of suspects.

    For one thing, just before Bob fell into a coma, a stranger sent him a letter with incredibly shocking news. There's, also, the director of the Happy Haven, as well as the social director, both of whom are acting strangely. Essie's suspicions even stretch out to the women Bob eats dinner with on a regular basis. She's determined to get to the bottom of this and find out who wants Bob dead and put an immediate stop to any more plots to kill the man.

    Bingoed is a humorous book filled with both mystery and laughter - not to mention a number of endearing characters that will warm your heart. It's a fast-paced, quick read that will surely lighten your mood. This is the first, and hopefully not the last, in the Essie Cobb Senior Sleuth Mystery series.

    A Cozy Mystery

    I had the pleasure of reading 'Bingoed' by Patricia Rockwell, a novel about a 90 year old super sleuth named Essie Cobb. Essie and her "partners in crime" suspect that foul play is involved when one of their fellow residents at Happy Haven Assisted Living Facility collapses and falls into a coma after winning at Bingo. The theories run rampant when spry Essie and her friends put their mind to solving this mystery.

    Mrs. Rockwell hit a homerun with 'Bingoed'. The storyline will keep you coming back for more. This is definitely a mystery read that you don't want to miss. Curl up with a cozy blanket for this cozy read.

    I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good "whodunit" mystery. People of all ages will enjoy this book. I appreciate Mrs. Rockwell's mysteries, because they are not too graphic or intimidating. Anyone who shies away from a mystery due to gripping content will appreciate this book. I think my grandmother would get a kick out of 'Bingoed' and enjoy it as much as I did.

    Patricia Rockwell is a quick rising author, whose writing will captivate you. I look forward to reading more from her in the future. Don't miss out on the adventures that Essie Cobb and her quick witted friends "wheel" themselves into. This page turner will make you laugh out loud, as well as keep you guessing and waiting to see what will come next. I'm anticipating reading more about Essie's adventures.
