Summary

Barbara Gold, a retired CIA agent, is bored out of her skull in Cheerville, a small town in New England - until a man is poisoned during a book club meeting for seniors. Everyone thinks Lucien had a heart attack, but from his symptoms, Barbara knows someone has slipped poisoned into his cake or drink. Even though she is no longer undercover, Barbara feels as if she's only playing the part of a sweet grandmother, but this may just be her most useful cover yet.

The clock ticks as she investigates who in the Cheerville Active Readers' Society would want Lucien dead. It's only a matter of time before his death is declared murder and the police start hounding everyone.

Suddenly Barbara's CIA training is useful again, and Cheerville is starting to seem not so dull after all…

Loved This Senior Retired CIA Agent

Barbara Gold, a retired CIA agent in Cheerville, a small town in New England--until a man is poisoned during a book club meeting for seniors. Everyone thinks Lucien had a heart attack, but from his symptoms, Barbara knows someone has slipped poisoned into his cake or drink. I loved listening to this audio book, I was smiling almost the whole time I listened to the story. I look forward to the other books in this series.

enjoyable!

l loved the reader's deadpan style of reading I thought it matched the character's laissez-faire retired pace of life. I look forward to continuing the series.

Fun to read about a cool Grandma

I am now hooked on this series. I am 64 years young and enjoyed this tail of murder solved by this most unique character and the relationship our Grandma has with her grandson. I must read more.

Too many plot holes

the entire book came across is unbelievable. The police would have been aware that someone was poisoned when they went to pick up the body. They would not have sat for 3 days waiting on the coroner. the police are not contacted until the very end of the book. also the book goes into lengthy and unnecessary explanations

Light hearted entertainment.

This book sounded fun when I read the synopsis so I ordered it. I'm glad I did. It was an easy listen and quite enjoyable. I want to be a granny like her. Strange though, it felt almost like a script for a TV show. Matter of facr, it could be a really great TV show in the likes of "Murder She Wrote." I'd watch it. Sometimes you just need to read something easy and pleasant, even if murder is involved. Enjoy!

My first cozy mystery and I liked it.

I found the narration soothing and the plot and clues easy to follow. I'm a very visual person, but I didn't have to difficult of a time keeping characters straight.
