Miriam learns the hard way that writing about and taking part in an investigation are completely different. If this is not enough on her plate, Miriam also has a divorced daughter and autistic grandson at home to take care of too. There is a lot wrapped up in this story. Miriam is relatively famous for her mysteries. She learns that her friend is being accused of a murder of someone in the same retirement home. Miriam decides to help her friend out when he doesn’t have any money to hire an investigator and gets a bit of an eye opener with operations and staff at the nursing home and when someone wants to silence her. There are a lot of suspects and a lot of information to go through to make sure she has the right person. But as important has it is to find the real killer, Miriam has her hands full at home too. Her daughter is divorced and has bad taste in men. She also brings an autistic son to Miriam’s home. She also has her hands full with a friends over attentive husband and the town sheriff too. This is a great story rich with details. The retirement home rang true for me since I worked in one for a very short time with I was a teenager. I loved how Miriam learned from all the mistakes she made in her investigations, it made her more real. This is a great story and I can’t wait to read more adventures with Miriam. I received Murder at the River Bend Retirement Resort from the author for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
