The sheriff of the first two books fulfills his promise of giving the ladies an all expense paid winter trip to Florida, arranging room and board for them in his brother's town. His brother, coincidentally, is also a sheriff, but seems cut of a different cloth (to use one of Eleanor's expressions.) She and Agnes, her 'partner in crime-solving,' are a bit taken aback at the terms of their arrangements.
Florida is not Lake Huron, and swimmers dress differently, when they dress. Scandalized but mesmerized by the differences, Aggie and El set out to solve one mystery, and then encounter another, and yet another, and still another. They are chased, seduced, shot at, robbed and at times infuriated by the people they encounter.
Their paramours, Mr. Wilson and Andrew, are with them in Florida, and bring a level of confidence and peace with them. If you loved meeting all of these characters in Armed and Outrageous, and worried about and with them through Grannies, Guns and Ghosts, you will enjoy their adventures in Senior Snoops. They say three's the charm, but maybe we'll be lucky enough to see more stories featuring these intrepid old ladies.
I guess I didn't notice the typos and grammatical errors in the first volume, or I would definitely not have bothered with this one. As an over-60 woman, I learned proper grammar in school and think authors today need to study noun-verb agreement in particular. One of my BIGGEST peeves is the writer or speaker who says things like "He came too close to Jane and I" - - you would never say "He came too close to I", so why can't you get this one right?
Won't be getting any more of this series, sorry Ms. Johns. 2 chances are all you get from me.
Another disappointment I had with the book is that there is too much attention given to sex for my taste. I do not like to think of other senior citizens pawing on each other publicly, going to nude beaches, making passes at married people, and so forth. That whole aspect of the book made me feel sick. If people want to live that way it is their business but I do not want to read a description of it.
To whom would I recommend the book? For senior citizens who did not go to college, who like to frequent night clubs and nude beaches.
After the two previous books I feel I know Agnes and Eleanor as good friends. They have spunk and are active seniors. They are sexually active and enjoy the men in their lives with enthusiasm. And they are snoopy! They can get in more trouble than any twelve teens.
I did enjoy this book. There are a few editing issues, but they don't get in the way of the story. I think my biggest gripe was the making Agnes become a sudden prude on nude beaches or in the strip club. I didn't see her that way before this book so the few remarks that made her that way stopped the story short for me. Still, I have the next set of books set up. I have a few other books I am supposed to be reading first, but I'll be happy to see what Madison Johns has these snoops up to next.
These are great light reading for when you need a break from heavier literary pursuits.
The same grammar and voice issues found in the first two are still present. A more rigorous editing is in order.
The concept is good and for the most part the plots are good. You can however by the third see the two main characters as Bea Arthur and Betty White with the Rue McClanahan character blended into both.
Best way to describe this series is Scooby Do reincarnated as the Golden Girls. That is not necessarily bad as I enjoyed both. I have to applaud Ms. Johns for making her main characters more experienced (mature). When you have a few more miles on the chassis it is nice to see characters who embody the same traits. So not perfect but still entertaining.
