The first rule of the Hibiscus Pointe book club is don't talk about the murder
Semi-reformed party girl Summer Smythe is finally feeling at home at the Hibiscus Pointe Retirement Community. All that's left to do is replace her late grandma's massive book collection with a TV. Donating them to the community library is the perfect solution—until she finds the librarian buried in books. Literally.
Summer and her sleuthing partner, longtime resident Dorothy Westin, can't imagine who would want to kill poor, dedicated Lorella. Soon, they're on case…and the Hibiscus Pointe book club is the perfect cover for their investigation.
A murdered librarian is headline news in south Florida, and even outsiders, including an oddball professor and a pair of dueling authors, are eager to join the once-dull group. But one menacing member has Dorothy and Summer bookmarked for the morgue. If the Ladies Smythe and Westin don't nab the killer fast, the Hibiscus Pointe book club may be reading their obituaries next.
See how Summer and Dorothy first teamed up in Cardiac Arrest, available now!
PERMANENTLY BOOKED is another enjoyable installment in the Smythe and Westin series. These two women make an unlikely yet entertaining team, and I enjoyed reading about their latest adventure. Readers who appreciate lighthearted and humorous mysteries will find a lot to love about this series.
