I stumbled across this looking for a murder mystery for my murder-mystery-lovin' 94-year old grandmother (no joke -- really. "The gorier the better" is her motto), and while this is not normally a genre I myself enjoy, I was grabbed from the get-go and found myself unable to put down the laptop. I think the author has invented a new genre -- the comedo-grapho-romanto-murder mystery. It really has something for everyone. It's completely hilarious, creative, engaging, and a really well-conceived mystery, to boot! I LOVED IT! A great escape, as all good books should be. I hope another one is not far behind this one -- I cannot wait!

This is not bad book. For many a reader it will be fun. I don't know what category I would put it in. Perhaps, the one that means "For the Girls, Guys pick it up at your own risk". I found it tedious and obvious in its humor, never did get straight which character was which but didn't much care. There is no mystery in it. The so-called mystery is simply a plot device to keep the story moving and give the characters something to do. In fact, as I now think briefly about it, the closest parallels that come to mind are 'My Friend Irma' and ' I Love Lucy' (if female vibrators had been acceptable plot devices in those 'Olden Times' on Radio and Black and White Television; if a comic had ever referred to one on the Ed Sullivan Show, it would have been their last ever appearance on that long running hit). At any rate, it is a quick read, generally harmless, and. probably, appealing to those to whom such things appeal.

A fun and engrossing story, with a good mystery wrapped in tongue-in-cheek humor. As if that weren't enough, the main character, Molly, shares her insights with excellent original cartoons throughout the book, and although the story is told in first person from Molly's point of view, the author is a main character in the book and even a main suspect. The ladies' fascination with sex seemed a little over the top, but then, as Molly said, maybe it's because they weren't getting any. Besides, everyone is exaggerated here. I found The Secret Life of Molly Rosenblum original, funny, and well written.

A quick, fun read, "The Secret Life" would make a good "chick flick" comedy. Although I didn't figure out who killed the evil step sister,
it didn't matter because this one is all about the characters - five attractive, intelligent (for the most part), middle aged (50-65), quirky, bawdy, entertaining women who get along with each other, know and like each other, and one shopaholic male mystery writer who all live in a small condo building somewhere in Florida.
This one will only take two or three evenings and it will entertain you.

I wanted to like this book because it had so much going for it. A quirky bunch of characters involved in a mystery. Jokes from 50+ women about themselves. A protagonist who's a cartoonist and sees things in comic strips. Myriad references to the Boston area (where I've lived for half my life) and some fun with the Jewishness of Florida... All good stuff.

So, where did it go so horribly wrong?

First off, I had trouble "getting into" the life and tone of the "Fab 5," they seemed so shallow and uninteresting despite their quirkiness. When the sister showed up. they morphed into a senior version of Mean Girls. No one seemed to be someone I would want to spend any time with in real life, despite my love of bargain hunting at off-pricers.

By the end of the first quarter of the book, I really didn't care who committed the murder.

By the end of the first half, I was really tired of the protagonist going on and on about who could have committed the murder and why she didn't think she had.

The second half was more of the same. And more of the same. And, really, more of the same. I really don't know why I finished it (except that I hate to write reviews of books I haven't completely read.) The only redeeming thing I can find about the book was the cartoons (and they were hit or miss.) Elliot/Harold is never fully explained (and why are there no cops in Florida?)

I fear this book is the beginning of a series...

I have to admit, I almost didn t past the first 20 pages. Then, I decided to keep going and I was plaisantly pleased. I have a beef with the character descriptions. Not all 50+ women look like hot 20 years old. Beside that, the intringue was good and well written. Glad a read it, glad I got it for free.

"Murder is such an ugly word, especially among friends."

So begins this wacky ride of a murder mystery. Molly Rosenblum is a cartoonist. She lives in Delray Beach, Florida, with four other retired ladies, herself and several others of which are widowed. They call themselves The Fabulous Five (FF, for short). They all bought condos in a oceanfront building called The Sandcastle.

The problems start when Jane's (one of the FF) sister, Cynthia comes to visit. Nobody likes Cynthia. But when Cynthia arrives, all of the ladies are surprised to find that she has, well, to put it simply, put on a bit of weight. That night at dinner, however, she blurts out that she has slept with all of their husbands. The next day, Cynthia dies, mysteriously, while trying on a pink sweater at a local Marshall's. She has obviously been poisoned. Molly was in the fitting room with her. Everyone suspects Molly. Molly suspects everyone else.

This is a delightful, fast-paced, murder mystery, and a very fun read. It does get a little, shall we say, "racy," at times, but you might expect that from a group of sixty-ish widowed ladies living in community. (
