I read Bear in Mind, and wanted to see where the folks in that book started out so I picked this one up on my Kindle.

Lilly may have lost a leg, but she hasn't lost her courage. She's a feisty senior making the best out of being placed in a nursing home - making friends and a fresh start.

When the nursing home starts going downhill, she hatches a plan to get her and her friends a new home and better care.

I love that the story of Lilly and friends is continued in a mystery series. Can't wait to rea

"Fun House Chronicles" focuses on the love and anguish of a mother (Lily) and daughter (Sylvia) as the aging Lily's medical condition forces her entry into a nursing home. The experience is described realistically through several different points of view; as Lily loses her prized independence and privacy, she also gains from staff skills and the forging of new relationships. The emotions of Sylvia, particularly her guilt, and her reluctant assumption of a decision making role will be very famili ...more

Having read Lessons Of Evil and following the author for years on her blog I couldn't wait to read her latest release. I wasn't sure what to think of the nursing home setting when I read the excerpts before the release but I am so glad I didn't let that prejudice me.

This book had me entranced by midway thru the second chapter. The characters were so well written that I was concerned what the end of the book would bring hoping that each one would be content with their fate. This story is a wonde

If you are faced with long term care for yourself or a loved one READ THIS BOOK. The author has been there and knows how you feel and seasons the chore with humor, wisdom and information. And if you aren't faced with decisions about adult care, read it for a great bunch of characters in a story that takes you on a surprising journey..just like a trip through the fun house in the title.

This one might worry you if you have a loved one facing a nursing home.But don't let that stop you. There's a lot of love and humor here -- not enough to be too pollyanna but enough to find the situation anything but hopeless.

I really liked this book. My mother is nursing home age, not in one but has spent time for rehabilitation. I loved the honesty but also the humor in a subject that is very emotional.

I won my first creative contest in the sixth grade for my Clean Up Fix Up Paint Up Week poster. This started a career in advertising that even a Phi Beta Kappa and BA from Michigan State University could not derail.

A few years back, I traded in my stilettos for rain boots and moved to the Pacific Northwest. Now that I am a widow with a nervous dachshund and grumpy parrot for company, I have starte
