She’s content, not bored. And if she keeps repeating that to herself, one day it might just be true. Everything changes one snowy afternoon, when a handsome stranger takes up residence next door. Tall, dark, handsome, and arrogant, he rolls into town like he owns the place. Before she can complain too much, Valley Springs is rocked by an unexpected murder of a local man.All eyes turn to Clary’s bookstore cafe when it’s revealed that lethal brownies were the murder weapon. The once-revered brownies become an object of suspicion, and Clary is forced to defend her talented chef and friend Marie.

When I get old, I hope to have friends as awesome as these. This is an absolutely feel good novel. Naturally, our intrepid characters, wattles and all, undergo all sorts of trials, but it's the compassion and generosity they exhibit that endears the reader. (Sam Sanders, via NetGalley)Zany families, eccentric friends, and ne'er-do-well neighbors inhabit the labyrinthine lives of three women friends as they grapple with real-world events in one "Golden Year".An unwelcome visit from local law enforcement, a younger friend's romantic chaos, and the death of a parent combine with daily mundanities - laundry, scones, and senior sex - to create a walloping, raucous listen.Opinionated pets - critics and alter egos - offer a rich counterpoint to the human dramas affecting their lives.Unfiltered and compelling, this entertaining sago provides listeners of all ages with a new and positive view of growing older. 1.
