This week my latest book, Murder at the River Bend Retirement Resort, will appear on Amazon and be available in both paperback and ebook versions. Miriam Lipsky is a 55-year old Jewish widow who lives with her divorced daughter and her autistic grandson. When her friend is accused of murdering a resident of a very upscale Jewish retirement home, she springs into action. While Miriam has published mystery novels, she’s a rank amateur when it comes to finding killers, and that’s what makes the book fun to write and, I hope, fun to read.
Miriam must juggle her divorced daughter and her tendency to always choose the wrong man, a best friend’s overly friendly husband, and a pushy rabbi who insists she allow him to fix her up with a member of his congregation. On top of all this, she finds it difficult to pry information out of the retirement home’s residents. When they do tell her what they saw, she finds some of the might have imagined everything. On top of all this, Miriam must grapple with a stalker. Just when she’s sure she’ll never love anyone again, love comes into her life from an unexpected source.
I think you’ll enjoy the book. If you do, this might be the first of a series of Miriam Lipsky cosy mysteries. Only you can help me decide.
