The ladies of the Summer Ridge Bridge Club of Brownsburg, IN are not playing cards tonight. No - not these septuagenarians - these five ladies are going skinny dipping in Alice's pool. When these ladies turned sixty, they all made bucket lists. Now ten years later they are finally doing the things on their lists. Why they started with skinny dipping ---- well who knows.

So the ladies are all bundled in their robes and no one really wants to get in the pool. There is a distraction - a terrible smell that seems to be coming from the pool shed. When they open the shed door - a body falls out. Isn't it lucky that Charlotte has "solve a murder" on her bucket list.

Things to ponder: Can the ladies cross off skinny dipping - since they found a dead body? How did the body end up in Alice's pool shed? What will the neighbors think?

I loved the premise of the book. The story pulled me in right from the beginning. It had a great cast of characters and I hope we get to visit with them again soon. The story is well-plotted and cozy mystery readers will enjoy finding a new author and series. I can't wait to see what kind of mischief they get up to in future books. This book turned into a page turner of a read for me - I had to find out whodunit. I found myself laughing out loud throughout the story. On my bucket list - read the next book in this delightful series.
