About the Author

Friends often accuse Gail Oust of flunking retirement. While working as a nurse/vascular technologist, Gail penned nine historical romances under the pseudonym Elizabeth Turner for Avon, Pocket, Berkley, and Kensington. It wasn’t until after she and her husband retired to South Carolina that inspiration struck for a mystery. Hearing the words “maybe it’s a dead body” while golfing with friends fired her imagination for this series. Gail is currently writing the Spice Shop Mysteries for Minotaur/St. Martin’s. When she isn’t reading, writing, or sleeping, she can usually be found on the golf course or hanging out with friends.

This was a fun book to read. If it were a movie it's what my hubby would refer to as a "chick flick". Just when you think you have the plot figured out it twists & turns away from you. This is a real "who done it" mystery with a little hint of romance thrown it. I can't wait for her next installment of the Bunco Babesw mystery to come out!

I am giving this book 5 stars because it was a fun read. I orginal chose it because it is set in South Carolina and I wanted to read a book set in South Carolina. And that is how I stumbled upon this book. I just loved Kate, the main character. I think she would be fun to have as a friend in real life. Anyway I enjoyed it and laughed out loud several times.

I believe I have read this book before --- or got half way through it, picked it up, put it back on the bookshelf and read it again! And, I throughly enjoyed the whole kit and kaboodle. I can remember playing Bunco with my Grandmother way back in the 1950’s but can’t remember how to play it at all --- sounds like a fun game for a group of people --- and this group of Bunco Player’s has an absolute ball doing it! The characters are all a perfect group of ladies with varying ideas, thoughts, families, life styles and just make the whole book fall into a GREAT read! You don’t have to even know Bunco to really enjoy this book – anyone liking a cosy mystery should love this book!

Kate and her group of Bunco Babes enjoy an active life in the retirement community of Serenity Cove, SC. Their weekly Bunco dice game, shopping, and golf keep these ladies enjoying life. They are also great fans of the CSI TV show, but when they find a human arm in a Wal-Mart bag on the golf green, the forensic fun comes a little too close to home. Kate tries to 'help' the Sheriff, but he's not 'listening' to her suggestions, so Kate enlists the Bunco Babes to do some investigating themselves. This is a cute cozy filled with feisty women. There is lots of fun with intelligent connections with many things that most of us are familiar with, like CSI. If you are of 'a certain age' , or are related to family and friends of 'that certain age', you will especially enjoy this cozy!

Serenity Cove Estates sounds like a great place to retire. Kate and her pals golf and play Bunco to pass the time but when they discover an arm without a torso in the course of a round of golf, detecting becomes their new hobby. The Bunco Babes are a spirited mix of women of a certain age who deliver lots of fun.

Serenity Cove Estates in South Carolina is a senior citizens housing development and home to the Bunco Babes, retirees who play Bunco twice a month. They are good friends and keep active. While playing golf, Kate McCall's ball rolls into a rough patch filled with bushes. When she goes to retrieve her errant shot, she finds a Wal-Mart bag with a severed arm inside. They call the sheriff who takes over the investigation, but Kate snoops around trying to help the law catch the perpetrator. Kate notices that her neighbor Rosalie Brubaker has not been seen in a while. Her husband Earl who grows orchids like a hippie says they had a fight and she left to see their children. Other body parts are found in the state park and at the recreation center. An anonymous phone caller to the sheriff insists that Earl is the killer and the murder weapon is in his house. Kate believes Earl is not the killer and has quite a few alternative suspects with motives to murder Rosalie, but finding proof could prove deadly. This is a delightful amateur sleuth starring a protagonist who advises the sheriff giving him clues while hoping he will share his findings with her. She and the Bunco Babes are a close knit group who has each other's back like the Musketeers so Kate has a powerful geriatric support group. The spunky Kate and her BFFs are filled with so much energy that people half their age will admire them. Gail Oust provides a complex whodunit starring a cast of eccentric sexagenarians.
