Synopsis:

One dead body, one interrupted marriage proposal, and too many suspects to count.
On the night of her engagement, Rae Lynn Dobbs stumbles across a dead body on the beach of White Sands, Florida. Not only does she recognize the murder victim as one of the retirement-home residents where she serves dinner, but it looks increasingly likely that someone there also killed him.
To her fiancé’s dismay, Rae Lynn launches her own investigation. Between the gossipy widows, the home’s last surviving bachelor, and her coworkers, Rae Lynn doesn’t have any shortage of suspects. But the more she learns, the more it seems anyone could be guilty. And if she doesn’t find out “whodunit” quickly, her fiancé might just become fed up enough to leave.

Sex, drugs and.... senior citizens?
Rae Lynn Dobbs stumbles over a body on the beach and deeper into the lives of the residents at the assisted living village where she works than she is comfortable with. Fortunately she has best friend Kate the cook to tread lightly by her side as they dig up clues about the "Mr. Ralph situation."

The residents of The Village are an assorted group of personalities .
Rae Lynn's engagement on the beach moments before she discovers the body of one of the few unattached males from the village brings up many memories and comments on marriage from the resident women. As far as her boss, Yvette, is concerned, the staff's only focus needs to be on preserving The Village's reputation as a safe and fun place to live, thereby ensuring profits.
I really felt for the too few employees whose bonus money was on the line.

With a mix of subtle humor and a dose of thought-provoking interactions, this cozy was unlike any I have read before.

I did receive this book in exchange for my review.


Marla Bradeen previously worked as a software consultant and analyst. In 2012, she gave up a traditional job for no other reason than to have more time to pursue personal interests, such as sleeping in late and taking naps. Although she misses seeing regular deposits into her bank account, she hasn’t once regretted that decision.
She didn’t initially intend to begin writing novels, but after several weeks of doing nothing, she realized sleeping all day isn’t as easy or enjoyable as her cats led her to believe. Over the ensuing months, she wrote Lethal Injection, which she self-published in 2013.
