Yes, I'm a card-carrying invisible little old lady!

Many of us, I am sure, reach our 60s and rapidly become aware of the salesgirl's eyes glazing over when we approach, men looking through us rather than at us and the woman 20 years younger than we are gets served first at the butcher's shop, while we lurk by the cash register, money at the ready for 10 it is understandable that Jean Henderson, feisty granny from the UK, is dismayed when she encounters the same result from the cops

I received a free download of "The Senior Moment" by Eva Hudson, in exchange for an honest review. This was a great crime thriller with a strong thread of humour. A senior citizen making a difference!

Jean Henderson has travelled from London to New York City to visit her son and his new baby. But being at the wrong place at the wrong time, places her as a witness to a fatality at a grocery store robbery, and she catches a glimpse of the face of one of the two criminals as they remove their mask a

'What's a woman got to do to get some attention around here?'

What an opening to this crime story! Jean Henderson has no sooner arrived on her first visit to New York City from London, suitcase still in hand, than she is witness to a fatality at a grocery store robbery, and what's more, she catches sight of the face of one of the two criminals as they remove their mask when they are about to speed away on their motorbike. Jean tries to inform the police of what she has just witnessed moments befo

Got this cheap as an edition with the other 2 Women Sleuths book.
No Angela Tate here, which is just as well.
Too long, the ending with a nice conclusion to nearly all story-lines, was good, which saved it from getting 1 star.
Not all endings will satisfy, but are realistic and some things open to interpretation.
The main characters where sometimes annoying but well developed and interesting, the growing up of a serial-killer was very good and may warrant for some a third star, but the seniors wher

Fast paced, interesting characters, but plot somewhat outlandish. Using the invisibility of the elderly/seniors generation in the plot is genius and it is done with humor that is both refreshing and fun to read, especially since I can identify with being treated as such myself these days! Ha! What's an ole girl gotta do to get noticed! I rec' this as a kindle gift compliments a giveaway, but I will read the first installment and look forward to follow-up reads on Stanley and Jean's future geriat ...more

I loved this book. My name is Jeanne, and the protagonist is also Jean. She is a senior citizen who takes on the crime and the police in New York. She is one brave women. There were a lot of problems with the police, but she hung in there and did whatever was necessary to make the good guys win and the bod guys loose. I love that. You will also enjoy reading this mystery.

This was a Goodreads win and I love it! Being a woman in her 60s, I especially enjoyed the fact that the main character was in her 60s and a hoot! Proving that older people are sometime invisible, she used that to her advantage to right some wrongs. A cute story and fun to read. I would read more by this author!

This is a very enjoyable book. Lots of different plot lines that all come together at the end. The characters have depth and are believable as real people.

If you are older, you will enjoy the empowerment and respect for senior citizens.

Decent book but not her best

A follow on to "Loyal Servant" but doesn't pack the same punch. An OK book, I don't wish I hadn't read it but it's not great.

I enjoyed The Senior Moment with it's wonderful characters, humour and exciting mystery. I like the fact that in this "18-49" world, somebody is thinking of the seniors.
