あらすじ・解説

Barbara Gold, a retired CIA agent, is bored out of her skull in Cheerville, a small town in New England - until a man is poisoned during a book club meeting for seniors. Everyone thinks Lucien had a heart attack, but from his symptoms, Barbara knows someone has slipped poisoned into his cake or drink. Even though she is no longer undercover, Barbara feels as if she's only playing the part of a sweet grandmother, but this may just be her most useful cover yet.

The clock ticks as she investigates who in the Cheerville Active Readers' Society would want Lucien dead. It's only a matter of time before his death is declared murder and the police start hounding everyone.

Suddenly Barbara's CIA training is useful again, and Cheerville is starting to seem not so dull after all…

A Hoot

The same age as granny and X law enforcement. Nothing like the real thing that’s why I enjoyed it so much

Loved This Senior Retired CIA Agent

Barbara Gold, a retired CIA agent in Cheerville, a small town in New England--until a man is poisoned during a book club meeting for seniors. Everyone thinks Lucien had a heart attack, but from his symptoms, Barbara knows someone has slipped poisoned into his cake or drink. I loved listening to this audio book, I was smiling almost the whole time I listened to the story. I look forward to the other books in this series.

enjoyable!

l loved the reader's deadpan style of reading I thought it matched the character's laissez-faire retired pace of life. I look forward to continuing the series.

okay, fun enough, but not great

Relatively fun short story, although the murder mystery part was a bit underwhelming, personally I prefer stories where the murderer is a bit more clever and more surprising, and the reason for the murder somewhat more convoluted. And it seemed to take forever for the main character to start thinking about a few things which seemed obvious to me, and yes, turned out to be important to the case, and let's add that I am usually not very good when it comes to noticing such things in a story... I like the reader though, and I like the idea of the old retiree CIA agent as the main character.

Parts which I didn't like all that much as they took me out of the story a bit when I started to wonder about them, first about her family relations, it seemed a bit odd that she seemed to have never told exactly where she, and his father, had worked to her son. Sure she probably would have been unable to tell exactly what his parents did, but not telling him at all, as it seemed, that they had been in the CIA, not even after they retired? I'd presume that organization has enough rather ordinary office drones not doing anything particularly sensitive too so that just knowing somebody worked there would not be much of a danger to anybody. And why not try to connect with her grandson by telling him that she owned a gun and then teaching him how to shoot since the grandson was already a teenager and very into games which involve a lot of that?

Also, the gun range visit scene jarred a bit as it seemed odd. I live in Europe but have visited the USA and have been taken to a range a few times when there, and from what I saw and was told I doubt somewhat you'd find any gun shop and range where you'd see only men, and have them act so surprised to see an older woman enter. She might be slightly mobbed by enthusiastic wannabe helpers, and after showing her skill, admirers wanting to talk shop with her, though. The shooters and gun enthusiasts culture seemed quite welcoming, and there seemed to be quite a lot of women, of all ages, in it. And, again from what I have been told, especially a professional would probably carry her gun in some sort of holster, not in her purse when going to face a situation where she assumed she might need that gun.

So yes, maybe the writer would have needed to do a bit more research, or else added some explanations to some scenes. Like that maybe her son was against guns, and that is why she and his father had kept quiet about their jobs and she didn't try to connect with the grandson that way, and maybe the area where she lived had a bit different gun culture than in some other parts of the country.

Fun to read about a cool Grandma

I am now hooked on this series. I am 64 years young and enjoyed this tail of murder solved by this most unique character and the relationship our Grandma has with her grandson. I must read more.

Granny proof

I guess some Grannies will enjoy this watered-down mystery. Cute title, but I found the wiring and narration tedious. Lin breaks so many rules of good writing, mostly telling rather than showing. There is nothing for the reader to do, and plowing to the end of even this short story, was challenging. I won’t be reading more from this author.

A good cozy mystery

I enjoyed this story. I had trouble understanding the narrator at times though. Getting older myself, I enjoy stories that star smart older women.
