The Happy Haven Assisted Living Facility is really hopping when one of their residents, Bob Weiderley, wins at Bingo. A whole dollar bill is his, but when he goes up to collect his winnings, he passes out and winds up in a coma. His fellow residents are stunned. Bob has been in such good shape, even though he is nearly 90.
90-year-old Essie Cobb isn’t buying that the excitement got to Bob. There has to be more to the story than that and she intends to find out. Along with her good friends Opal, Marjorie and Fay, they investigate the situation and find much to be suspicious of and a surprising amount of suspects.
For one thing, just before Bob fell into a coma, a stranger sent him a letter with incredibly shocking news. There’s, also, the director of the Happy Haven, as well as the social director, both of whom are acting strangely. Essie’s suspicions even stretch out to the women Bob eats dinner with on a regular basis. She’s determined to get to the bottom of this and find out who wants Bob dead and put an immediate stop to any more plots to kill the man.
Bingoed is a humorous book filled with both mystery and laughter – not to mention a number of endearing characters that will warm your heart. It’s a fast-paced, quick read that will surely lighten your mood. This is the first, and hopefully not the last, in the Essie Cobb Senior Sleuth Mystery series.
