A coastal Alabama retirement community is the ideal picture of senior living—until someone gets killed—in this cozy mystery series debut.
After a long tenure as a professor of social work, Cleo Mack is ready to become the youngest new resident at Harbor Village in picturesque Fairhope, Alabama. The retirement community boasts classes in painting, pottery, and photography—not to mention being a buyer’s market for husbands. It seems an ideal place to make new friends and rediscover life. Until a dead body is found in the pool.
When the victim turns out to be the unpopular director of senior living, Cleo is named acting director. Now she must rely on her well-honed people skills to uncover a killer in a place where short-term memory isn’t what it used to be, and age is just a number. But if Cleo isn’t careful about her snooping, her number may soon be up . . .
