Overview

Imagine waking up in a place you didn’t recognize, not remembering anything from the day before and then finding a dead body. Or consider a male Miss Marple enmeshed in a lighthearted Memento with a dash of Fifty First Dates.

In this, the third of the Paul Jacobson Geezer-lit Mystery Series, cantankerous octogenarian Paul Jacobson must solve a series of murders while struggling with the problems of his short-term memory loss. Paul learns about the homeless community, disreputable art dealers and the beach scene in Venice Beach, California, and must dance a geezer two-step to stay out of the clutches of the police and the bad guys.

Publishers Weekly
Mystery fans of all ages will welcome Befeler's third humorous cozy featuring octogenarian Paul Jacobson (after 2009's Living with Your Kids Is Murder). When Paul, who suffers from short-term memory loss, awakes one morning next to an attractive woman he doesn't know in an unfamiliar garage apartment, he decides to clear his mind by going for a walk. Outside, after determining he's in Venice Beach, Calif., he discovers a dead body in a canal. Soon after, he learns the woman in the bed is his fiancée, Marion Aumiller, and it's their wedding day. When the body in the canal turns out to be a murder victim, Paul resolves to solve the crime before he and Marion depart in two weeks on their honeymoon cruise to Alaska. Aided by a daily journal he keeps and his 12-year-old granddaughter, a computer whiz, Paul once again proves a formidable sleuth. (Aug.)
Kirkus Reviews

A gentle tale in which that venerable subgenre, the amnesiac whodunit, is freshened by a geriatric hero whose short-term memory loss is all too believable.

Paul Jacobson wakes up to find himself in a place he doesn't recognize next to a beautiful woman he's never seen before. The last thing he remembers is living with his wife Rhonda in Hawaii. Now he appears to be in Venice Beach doing who knows what. For Paul, however, this is just another day in the life. The octogenarian has a memory span that's just a day long, so that everything's erased each night when he falls asleep. For most people, this amnesia would be a challenge, but for Paul it's even more of a disaster because the poor guy keeps getting wrapped up in murder mysteries—at least according to his family. In his latest adventure, Paul is under investigation by bulldog Detective Quintana for deaths involving both the art world and the homeless population. He's eager to clear his name, if only so that he can leave town to honeymoon with his bride Marion, the new acquaintance from his bed. Though he can't remember any details of the past few days, Paul remains fairly certain he's not a killer. With the help of his granddaughter Jennifer, who knows about something called "the internet," and Marion's grandson Austin, the old man struggles to get to the truth in a world he has to start over every day.

Befeler's third installment (Living with Your Kids is Murder, 2009, etc.) won't ruffle any feathers. It's the sort of cozy your grandparents would love.
