This is the first book in the Silver Six Crafting series by Nancy Haddock and I absolutely loved it! What an awesome bunch of seniors–I want to be like them when I get older. They had one heck of a great living arrangement in a nice house, their own lives and activities, but they would drop everything if another of them needed something, especially when it came to clearing their own Sherry of possible murder.
My Goodreads review:
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I kept hearing what an awesome series this is, and now I get to agree with that! I know just after reading the first book that I’m going to wish there were more than three in this series. I fell in love with all of the seniors and Aunt Sherry, what an amazing group of friends! They were fiercely loyal to one another and would do anything for one of their other housemates. And I really enjoyed the eventually not-so-mysterious 90-something year old lady next door. Overall, I really enjoyed how this series shows how many seniors are after they retire: able, wanting to work and be useful, and they knew their way around technology. No rocking chairs for this crowd. I hadn’t guessed the killer until Nixy herself did, and the showdown was really awesome, since it involved everyone. Nixy had worked tirelessly to clear her aunt’s name when a land developer was found dead in her family cemetery, and her hard work definitely paid off. I’m so anxious to read the next book, but yet I don’t want to hurry through the series, since I’m not sure if there will be any more to it. (I wish there would be!)
