Vlad Newsome isn’t exactly known as a people person. He’s really more contentious than convivial.

But something’s changed with him, and Flo and Agnes are suspicious.

Vlad’s suddenly “peopling”. He’s shaking hands and even curving his thin lips upward at times in a terrifying imitation of a smile.

Could it be he’s turning over a new leaf? Is he facing a life-changing event t

This is the first Silver Hills book I’ve read and it read well as a stand alone novel. Vlad Newsome, the manager of Silver Hills Singles and Seniors Retirement home, is not a friendly guy. In fact, friends Flo and Agnes think he’s more like a reprehensible creature of the night. When Vlad suddenly seems to be getting friendly with everyone, Flo and Agnes are sure he’s up to something and they’re determined to find out what it is. When a dead body is found and Flo and Agnes see Vlad’s car racing ...more

Vlad-Handing is book 5 in the Silver Hills Cozy Mystery series. It is set in a singles/retirement residency (think 55 and older) filled with an eccentric cast of characters. This time around, Flo and Agnes find themselves trying to prove that manager Vlad Newsome, who many consider a reprehensible creature of the night, is innocent of murder. The only problem is that these ladies are a not 100% sure that Vlad isn’t the murderer.

Flo and Agnes are two ladies that you would love to call your friend

Another Fantastic Whodunit! Once again the author has written a funny storyline involving the gang from the Silver Hills Seniors and Singles Residents and two very suspicious murders.

Leave it to Flo and Anges to decide something is afoot and stick their noses into solving another crime at the detriment of the local police department. These two ladies may be a bit eccentric but one thing is for sure they pull out all the stops and laughs to get their man or to prove one of their own isn’t guilty

There is only one word for this series and this book! AMAZING! Flo and Agnes are at it again in the latest installment of adventures at Silver Hills! This laugh out loud cozy mystery is a book that once you start you just can't put it down. If you start it at bedtime, you will be lacking in sleep! Although you can read this book as a standalone, you should really start this series from the beginning and get to know the ladies! They give a new meaning to aging and retirement! Full of characters t ...more

I really like this brilliant Silver Hills series of books by Sam Cheever, I personally prefer these to Sam's Romantic suspense books (perhaps because I'm a mere male!)

The characters are superb, and I really love that they act consistently through the series, portraying two of the managers as possible vampires is also a hilarious running gag.

In this book Vlad and Morty need the assistance of the Silver Hills team to prove their innocence in a murder investigation. As usual Flo, Agnes and their fr

If you enjoy mysteries with action, adventure and humor, this is an hilarious read.

I also like their funny animal companions, and the glimpse into their single but dating or involved world - so hard with lifetimes of experience and baggage, but so funny when its someone else's clumsy adventures and encounters.

A fun and funny read that explores friendship, family and love in a variety of dynamics.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

he was never a people person but all of a sudden that is what he is acting like. they do not believe this is really a change of heart for him. they believe something is going on and he is up to something. what is he up to? will they find out? can they show him up? a woman is murdered and he is a suspect. did he really do it? who did it? see if you can find out before the end

I like the Silver Hills Cozy Mystery series written by Sam Cheever. The main characters are middle aged women who are pretty much fearless. They live at Silver Hills and they always seem to have a murder to solve. Accused this time is Vlad Newsome, a man who they are not exactly fond if! Flo and Agnes are fun characters to visit! I look forward to their next adventure.

There is not as much funniness in this story as I expected and always love in this series. It is quite cruel and hard to the girls I adore and I bit my nails reading it, really afraid for them. And the last sentence? Oh my, I can't imagine what will happen next. But I will be there for the ride, that's for sure!

These are really cute books....lots of laughs!! I love the banter between Flo and Agnus. This one kept me on my toes guessing. These books are quick reads but they come out more often than other series books. Happy Reading :)

This book, like the rest of the series, is absolutely hilarious and impossible to put down. If you haven't read it, you should.
