A morose parrot with a reputation for biting perches in a small cage in the lobby of Brookside Retirement Community. For Josephine, a reluctant resident, he sums up the place which friend and handwriting expert, Lill, has dubbed Babbling Brook (in honor of the missing waterway and the more exasperating residents). However, Brookside turns out to be more interesting than Josephine expected, as it becomes the setting for art theft, other dodgy dealings, and…naked poker. Investigating the unusual events, Josephine and Lill befriend Devi Subramanian, a young woman Josephine tries to prevent from making the same mistakes she has made.
Josephine’s husband and son are money grubbing jerks though!
Fascinating depiction of the lives of some of the Brookside residents as they confront and solve problems of life and love. While this book is a real whodunnit, no character had to be murdered to create the mysteries. A delightful twist.
A babbling beautiful story
I love every moment of this captivating tale of intrigue romance and forgiveness truly divine characters a must read bravo !!!
