Lindy Sutton has her hands full. In between having her clown act clobbered by pint-sized critics, keeping a group of sex-crazed octogenarians from starting brawls in the raciest bar in town, and trying to keep her crazy Aunt Pip from being tossed out of Laughing Pines retirement home, she still has to contend with her son’s garish band bus parked in her driveway. Could things get any worse?
Yup! Margaret Quaid, the social worker at Laughing Pines is found dead of an apparent overdose and the drop dead handsome detective on the case, thinks she stole the drugs from the retirement home and was pretty active in the world of wife swapping to boot.
Lindy’s temper soars, along with her long dormant hormones, as she sets out to clear Margaret’s name, find the murderer and make the sexy detective, Mike Grogan, eat crow. Aided and abetted by the aging, but flamboyant Chappy Lowton, her eccentric and sarcastic sister, her best friend Patty, and that hoard of sex-crazed geriatrics, Lindy wades into the world of swingers only to find that there are plenty of people with a motive to kill the social worker. Lindy’s antics and adventures will keep you fascinated and laughing until the very end.
I received a copy of this book free in exchange for an honest review
This is the ultimate, perfect summer beach read! I literally did not stop laughing from page one to the very end. The characters are developed so well that you feel like you are reading about your best friends. They are all a bit quirky and hilarious, and even the bad guys will make you laugh. I literally laughed so hard at some parts of the book that I had tears running down my face. The story is very well written with a wonderful mixture of suspense and comedy. There is a large dose of sexcapades thrown in for good measure. I usually don’t read books that have a lot of sex in the story, however this book came at it from such a comedic angle that it’s not overly offensive or crass. The murder mystery was developed perfectly. It kept me guessing until the very end. Just when I thought I had it figured out, another wrench was thrown in and I was left guessing again. I am absolutely im love with the characters from Dying for Sex and I have my fingers crossed for more adventures with my new favorite book friends!
