Overview

Senior snoop, Agnes Barton, has taken up residence in a Winnebago at a campground in East Tawas, Michigan. It's not the ideal place for a woman of seventy-two to live, but she's making do. She had planned to start a detective agency with partner in crime, Eleanor Mason, but a snag with the license has them free wheeling it, not that it matters because they are the ones folks call when dead bodies turn up.

A frantic phone call has Agnes and Eleanor racing to the scene of yet another crime scene. Herman Butler has fallen to his death from a third story window, and the widow, Betty Lou, is beside herself with either grief or competing for the Oscars, and it's up to Agnes and Eleanor to unravel the mystery, which gets more interesting when a ghost is listed as a possible suspect.

This time around, Agnes and Sheriff Peterson can agree, the widow is nuts, but wait, a few days later the ghost ship, Erie Board of Trades, was spotted off the shores of Lake Huron. Ghost hunters, G.A.S.P., hightail it into town, and East Tawas is overrun with ghost sightings.

Agnes and Eleanor must sort fact from fantasy before another body is found or a curse is realized.

Slow-starter with too many "senior Citizen" references in early chapters but once the story takes over it turns into a fun read with surprising twists and an ending I didn't expect.

Being a granny, I take exception to the way the these grannys dress and engage in sex. These grannys are too far out for me. Wh ile the story line was good and there was a lot of humor; the fashion and sex were just muc

good story, great characters, but a bit shaky in the writing. jumps from one idea to another without clear cut reasons, moves way to fast in the action scenes. all in all a good beach read.

I really wanted to like this, but it was terrible! What was meant to be funny was demeaning, insulting and crass. Worthless.

I am going to read all of this series before I'm done. They are funny, entertaining and always have a little twist in each one which keeps the reader in suspense. Enjoy!

I would recomend this book for a little short reading. Only 172 pages just long enough not to lose interest. Over all a nice funny story to read enbetween something longer and more serious

A little bit unrealistic for a couple of old people, to be serous reading, however I found it very entertaining. Would recommend it for adults.

Proofreader certainly not doing her job. Editing is substandard. Fragmented plot. I am of a certain age. We engage in some pretty far out things, but we don't demean ourselves or others by being childish. We maintain our child likeness without coming off as idiots. Gives vibrant. Intelligent seniors a rather unflattering stereotype.
