I'm not used to Glady being someone else other than the detective. And just went the story reached climax at the part when it reveals that The Snake is not dead yet, the story ended abruptly, and unreasonably. But this is still fun to read though, how Rita describes the relationship between Glady and Jack.

What fun! Rita Lakin and her eccentric cast of young-at-heart, golden agers is just this side of perfect as their harebrained, unexpected antics make you wish you could move in right next door. Though light on mystery, the heavy hand of humor makes following Gladdy and team in this entertaining cozy an outstanding escapade.

Following a hurricane of disastrous proportions, life at Lanai Gardens has finally settled down. Gladdy Gold and her beau, Jack are headed to the altar and their friends and f

I didn’t find this one as good as her others – there was too much “Jewish” and “French” phrases with no definitions so often I couldn’t understand whatever was going on – also the little old ladies detectives weren’t really doing any detecting in anything important --- sort of cute though!
Just like most other series mysteries I've been reading lately this one has gotten a bit tired and old as it's gone on, despite really enjoying the first few. It was okay and I do enjoy these characters but I will likely leave plenty of time before I read the next one. Just too predictable.

#6 in the Gladdy Gold series. Representative of the series about a group of geriatric women in a Florida condo complex. This is a fun to read time killer.

Gladdy Gold series - Gladdy and Jack are finally headed for the altar, when a trip to a book fair brings Jack face-to-face with an old flame. Michelle duBois is a beautiful, bestselling, muckraking French author with whom Jack had a summer romance after the death of his first wife. The subjects of her investigations are not happy with her and h

Glad Gold has just decided to remarry her retired-cop suitor Jack. But that's when an old flame of Jack's reappears. Actually, Michelle is not old (that's part of the problem): She's a young, gorgeous and a best-selling French author of exposes--and her life is being threatened. What's more, she wants Jack to protect her from a nameless, faceless hired killer. As though that weren't enough trouble for Glad's senior citizen detective agency, Bella and Sophie get involved with a guru at the local ...more

Good but not her best. More time was spent on the love angle and the "old flame" than on the mystery. Nonetheless, Gladdy and the girls were funny at times.

I absolutely loved Getting Old Is Tres Dangereux! I am a big fan of the Gladdy Gold mysteries and this one is no exception! There's not much mystery, but a lot on the love triangle between Gladdy, Jack and Michelle. Still the mystery part is quite good, but it ended a bit too abruptly for my taste!
Of course Gladdy's sister and friends are also doing their thing, and I loved that we are getting to know more about Ida!
The double wedding was a great idea and finally Gladdy and Jack tie the knot!

What can I say about "Getting Old Is Tres Dangereaux?" It was superb, magnifique! Oh la la...the French. Of course, I'm heavily prejudiced having married a Frenchman from Lyon area.

The romantic tension included with the mystery which turned into a murder or two and humor...what more can you want in a book? More, that is what I wanted...I did not want the book to end.

And, the ending? Well, you have to find out for yourselves, however, it was highly, highly, satisfying!

I am working my way through the Gladdy Gold series and it is enjoyable to read something light now and then. this book was not a favorite because of all the French expressions which I can do without in a book. Gladdy's fiance is more involved in solving the case than Gladdy and her gals this time but he is working on a case involving an ex lover which puts Gladdy in an uncomfortable position. The nicest part of this book is that she and Jack finally tie the knot!

This series has been a sweet surprise for me. I thought it would be a fun one to follow but I wasn't expecting the impressive plot and character development that I'm seeing. Love it!

Not nearly as good as the others in this series . . . fewer funny moments, more cliches, and Gladdy is barely involved in the mystery
