I'm also joining in Book Beginnings on Friday. It's hosted by Rose City Reader

This week I'm listening to...

First Chapter

With lights flashing, an ambulance pulled up to the front door of La Vida Boca before screeching to a stop.  Prior to their arrival, the paramedics had disabled the siren out of deference to the three hundred elderly residents all of them in their eighties and nineties with a few centenarians mixed in.  It was wise not to startle them since only one stretcher fit in the back of the ambulance at a time.  

From 56% on my Kindle...

"I'm kill me!"

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Old people were dying at an alarming rate at La Vida Boca, a posh assisted living facility in Boca Raton, Florida. With its sterling reputation, dedicated staff, and top-notch medical care, none of the deaths are considered suspicious, but when members of the poker club start to die under strange circumstances, attorney Jamie Quinn finds herself once again embroiled in a mystery. With help from her new friend, Jessie Sandler, and her favorite P.I., Duke Broussard, Jamie uncovers a crime that took place forty years earlier. Can she stop the killer in time? Or is she in danger of becoming the next victim?

  2. Sounds like a great cozy. This week I am spotlighting A Peculiar Combination by Ashley Weaver from my review stack. Happy reading!

  3. The setting for this story is fascinating to me right now. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “THE NEXT WIFE”

  4. The opening quote seemed a bit wordy for my tastes. I hope you enjoy your selection. My book is The Girl with the Louding Voice
