She moved back to that town and opened a store called Second Chance. They buy goods, refurbish them and then sell them.
The ladies help Sarah in the store. Her grandmother is off on a cruise with her new beau. The town's new medical examiner is an friend from Sarah's childhood. So is the detective on the case. Problems in the past caused the friends to stop their friendship. All matters are resolved in the end. Friendships are mended, old flames may reconnect, and a murder is solved. All of this with the help of Elvis the cat.
Elvis can find clues with the best of them. He is a major part of the story. Once the murder is solved, the "ladies" decide to open a discreet investigations business. Looking forward to starting the next book in the series.
After loosing her radio talk show Sarah Grayson has returned to North Harbor, Maine to be with her Grandma and her friends. She started Second Chance, a shop for refurbished/ repurposed items that she mans with two of her grandmother's eccentric friends, Avery, Mac and her furry sidekick Elvis.
When Maddie's gentleman-friend winds up dead in her backyard, all signs point to her as the culprit-especially since she may have had motive. The other women aren't having it, and join forces to become the geriatric Charlie's Angels in order to investigate the crime along with the oldest hacker in history and an unwilling Sarah.
This series is from the same author as the Magical Cats series. I enjoyed getting to know Elvis, the Black beat-up stray that chose Sarah as his human. The friends of her grandmother's: Liz, Charlotte, Rose and Maddie were great and I liked the guys in Sarah's life- no boyfriend but one that everyone says likes Sarah (Nick), a lawyer with a past friendship with Sarah (Josh), and Second Chance's handy man Mac. Personally, I am team Mac at this point as he seems to have the best connection to Sarah. The characters are charming and well developed, and I loved the description of the area. As with all her other books, this was a fun light read that left me feeling refreshed. I enjoyed Elvis' little habits (Jeopardy!), and attitude. For me, this was a five star book.
On the adult content scale, there is a brief (and mild) nudity incident- more funny than anything. There is also mild violence and very mild language. I would let anyone read this. I give it a one.
Part of the charm of this book is the group of senior citizens who become involved in solving the murder, with the help of a younger woman and her cat. Cats always make a story better, and this one is a charmer. The senior citizens are portrayed as being smart, hip, and determined. I loved the person who was brought in as the computer expert, especially since they were a senior citizen rather than the now cliched smarter than anyone teenager. Yes, I'm a senior citizen. so that may play into my feelings about the book, but I truly enjoyed that this writer really did break out of the mold to create her story and did it well!
Definitely a good read - fun - unusual, and a good start for a new series. Before I even finished the book I went online and pre-ordered the next in the series.
