Santangelo has done it again. She has penned a magnificent cozy that will leave you panting from the excitement, laughing at the characters, and -- no surprise here -- begging for more.
Lori's Reading Corner
Moving can Be Murder is a superb read!
Midwest Book Review
Susan Santangelo uses great characters, humor and a sort of "Desperate Housewives" backdrop to create a hilarious mystery....The Baby Boomer mysteries would make a great television series.
National Association of Baby Boomer Women
Moving Can Be Murder is another great read from an author who knows how to keep you turning pages as fast as possible. Susan Santangelo also provides a handy quiz to help readers determine their own right answers to the "moving" question.
Suspense Magazine
Susan Santangelo has made a huge splash in the literary community.... Crisp writing, sharp humor, and lovable, quirky characters make Moving Can be Murder a sit-back, put-your-feet-up, laughing good time.

    Empty nester Carol Andrews would prefer leaving her beautiful antique home feet first to selling it and moving on. But her Beloved Husband Jim convinces her that a nearby active adult community is the best fit for them at this time in life. The house sells, and Carol returns alone the night before the closing for a pity party farewell tour. And finds the dead body of the buyer in her living room. Wow. Talk about seller’s remorse!

    Dollycas’s Thoughts

    Another great read from Susan Santangelo!

    I am still not fond of Carol’s “Beloved” but by the end of this one he was starting to be redeemed a bit in my eyes. I really love Carol, she has a heart as big as all outdoors and really just wants her house to herself for a few hours a day and her husband out from underfoot as much as possible. These two had be shaking my head at times and laughing out loud in others. My husband and I could be at the same place in our lives soon and like Carol and Jim we have two dogs that are a very important part of our lives so their needs and comfort will need to be addressed as well. The author includes a Moving Quiz in the back of the book that may be quite helpful to others entering retirement and thinking of downsizing.

    The story does go a little deeper than a normal cozy mystery. We meet Sister Rose, a nun who taught Carol in school and even all these years later still strikes a bit a fear in her former students whenever she is around. Now Sister Rose is working with a group that helps victims of domestic abuse. This is a topic that hits home for me. A few months ago I wouldn’t have been able to finish this book and definitely would have not been laughing. Two of my children were entrenched in very physically and emotionally abusive situations and they are slowly making progress to get their lives on the right path and dealing with all they have been through. . Santangelo hits the nail straight on the head with her presentation of this issue. I found myself scarily identifying with one character. It really hit me how much our kids need their parents whether they are 5 or 25 or older. It is so important to stay tuned in and listen not only to what they are saying but to what they are NOT saying. That being said this is a thread that runs throughout the story but the author never comes cross as preachy or heavy handed with this topic.

    I started reading this book in the afternoon and didn’t put it down until the final page. I will say I read this book at a perfect time for me. I identified with the characters and was enlightened by the subject matter but I also truly enjoyed the mystery and was surprised at the ending. I am looking forward to Marriage Can Be Murder.

    Santagelo's Reign as Cozy Queen Lives!!

    "Moving Can Be Murder" by Susan Santangelo:

    Speaking of moving.move over Janet Evanovich, Santangelo has the chops that prove a thousand fold she's got what it takes to play with the big dogs! With biting wit, charm and a heaping spoonful of ingenuity, Santangelo brings us another installment in the lives of Jim and Carol Andrews, two baby-boomers who can't seem to stay out of trouble's sight.
    'Geezer tour' is what Carol calls looking at Elderly, Adult Communities. Deciding to sell their large, family home is the first step the Andrews take into yet another "fine mess". To be fair and accurate, it's Carol this time who is accused of murder, or at the very least seems highly suspect. Jim's just the guy that's married to her.
    In true Carol Andrews form, she is bound and determined to find out what really happened the night she found a dead man in the living room of her empty house on the eve before it was due to be sold. To make matters worse, you'll never guess who the dead body belongs to. When the news of the identity hits the reader, there's much more to come where it's concerned, and I'm not just talking about who may or may not have done the dirty deed.
    This story is jam-packed with Carol's cast of best buds and signature Santangelo fun! As I watched the story unfold before me, I couldn't help but chuckle at every turn. She speaks the absolute truth in the way that every wife would if she had the brass ones to do it. Carol has learned the subtle art of keeping her mouth shut-when it's absolutely necessary. However, that doesn't stop her mind from working overtime with the wise-ass quips and quick-witted, sarcastic remarks she allows to roll around in her mind and has become famous for.
    It seems a moot point to say this, but Santangelo has done it again. She has penned a magnificent cozy that will leave you panting from the excitement, laughing at the characters and-no surprise here-begging for more.
