Paul finds romance as he struggles to escape a murderer intent on a repeat performance.

I’m not looking forward to our inescapable sentence of frailty; it’s hard enough hanging around aged relatives, why would I want to read about it? You’d think that reading a book about a retired old fart would be pretty darn boring. You’d think that garnering the occasional smirk would be the best you could get. You’d be wrong on both counts. RETIREMENT HOMES ARE MURDER by Mike Befeler is an entertaining story, though improbable in places. No Matter. It’s a light-hearted book with surprisingly lively octagenarians. And a few laughable lines that nearly got my ereader spattered with red wine. I shall be reading more of these tales.

Retirement homes are filled with bright, interesting people who no longer want to spend precious time mowing lawns, housekeeping, and cleaning up after good meals. What a great place to get a few together to solve a mystery. This book fell short of that, and was rather depressing.A good series could have them travelling to various places (as residents do) and finding murder and mayhem.

I enjoyed this book. It's written with a good sense of humor and the characters are different than you usually find in a mystery. One problem I did have is the font for the book would not enlarge on my Nook. Said it did but still same small type. I hope Mike Befeler has more light mysteries out soon.

Old geezers, murder, stamps, and a Heniken bottle? An interesting story that keeps you guessing about what's for dinner and what happened the day before... Mike Befler does a great job moving the story along (not easy for old folks...)and has created a character in Paul Jacobson that is so crotchety that he keeps getting himself into trouble. An easy read that makes you think twice before you use a trash chute.

In Hawaii, crusty octogenarian Paul Jacobson resides at the Kina Nani assisted living retirement home, but has trouble remembering anything that has occurred recently for instance how he got there. At breakfast he meets two other residents, Asperser sufferer Henry Palmer, who knows every baseball stat imaginable and blind Meyer O¿Hanna who suggests Paul write everything down in a journal each night so he can use this as a reminder when he forgets everything the next morning.------------------------ When Paul goes to throw out garbage, he finds the chute stuffed with the corpse of a neighbor Mr. Tiegan. Detective Siato thinks Paul is the prime suspect as the victim was suing him over stealing valuable stamps. Encouraged by Meyer and assisted by Henry, Paul investigates to the chagrin of his visiting son, the lead detective, and the killer.--------------------- The geriatric trio makes for a delightful amateur sleuth thriller. Paul¿s short term memory problems makes everyday living let alone the issues he faces that much more difficult Meyer¿s solution to the memory loss and other intelligent advice helps Paul with more than just his inquiry whereas Henry knows baseball stats perhaps better than even the Schwab does (though I doubt he can Stump the Schwab in other sports). This combination makes for a delightful geriatric investigative tale that cozy fans will appreciate.------------- Harriet Klausner
