Overview

The Skinny-Dipping Grandmas Bare All When their Pinup Calendar Shoot Goes Terribly Wrong

Working on a television taping to promote the Parke County Covered Bridge Festival, the ladies decide to use their access to the Roseville Bridge to cross #39 off Charlotte’s bucket list: Be a Sexy Calendar Girl. But the photo shoot is interrupted by gunshots and Francine’s cousin William stumbling down the riverbank followed by a man with a gun. William sustains life-threatening injuries, but is it attempted homicide?

Francine and Charlotte go into detective mode to uncover the secret William knew about the shooter. Their success, however, depends on surviving two arson events, a séance, a shortage of Mary Ruth’s wildly popular corn fritter donuts, memory-challenged nursing home residents, and a killer who refuses to go up in flames.

In this diverting sequel to Perona’s Murder on the Bucket List (2015), the women of the Summer Ridge Bridge Club, all in their 70s, gather on a scenic bridge to pose for photos for a sexy pinup calendar as part of the Parke County, Iowa, Covered Bridge Festival. Then gunshots ring out, and the ladies see a man running across a cornfield in their direction; he stumbles down the creek bank below the bridge and falls unconscious at the edge of the water. The unconscious man turns out to be Matthew, a nursing home owner who’s a second cousin of one of the women, Francine McNamara. As they await the arrival of the police, Francine wonders whether the ensuing police investigation might generate some welcome publicity for their group. The solution to the shooting incident may be far-fetched, but cozy fans will enjoy spending time with Francine and friends. Perona is the pseudonym of the father-daughter writing team of Tony Perona and Elizabeth Dombrosky. (July)
