“The Golden Girls play Nancy Drew in their own funny and creative ways...colorful and Meshugeneh.”—Mystery Scene
Gladdy Gold’s exotic vacation has reached a pinnacle: a romantic soak in a hot tub with the man she adores, far from Florida and her nosy neighbors…until an urgent message concerning the safety of her best friends sends her running home. Now, her idyll is ony a memory, her would-be-beau, Jack, is furious, and not only are the girls of the Gladdy Gold Detective Agency alive and well—they’re onto a hot new murder case.
Is a suave senior Romeo to blame for the mysterious deaths in Florida’s most luxurious retirement communities? Gladdy and her silver squad of “gossip girls” must go undercover to find out—assuming many fancy airs as possible. But Gladdy’s drama queen sister, Evvie’s role of a Palm Beach flirt soon turns their fun and games deadly. For by the time the girls ID their perp, Evvie is in the arms of a killer. The mavens of meddling better find out fast!!
