The Cha-Cha Babes of Pelican Way are three sixty-something women living in a Florida retirement community. Each one has many problems to deal with - Celia is a widow with an estranged adult daughter, Deb is having health problems and Marcy hides from her problems by getting involved with men. When the three of them get together and dance the cha-cha, their troubles seem far away.

Then one evening, Marcy calls in a panic. She’s trapped under a naked dead man. She begs Celia and Deb to help her mov

This heartwarming cozy mystery is surprising uplifting; it certainly raised my spirits. The trio of seniors starring in this novel are so unafraid to expose their vulnerabilities to each other, so honest, yet so persevering. They have to deal with bullying and intimidation and slander, just as much as do schoolkids or adults in their 20's or 30's. Apparently the drive to bully and intimidate doesn't recede with advancing age. Marcy, Celia, and Deb are far from perfect, of course, but they are ea ...more

What happens when a Florida setting, a Golden Girls-esque trio, and the cha-cha mix together? The babes of Pelican way!




Celia, Marcy, and Deb all live in a retirement community where they became friends at first sight and learned to leave their worries behind through the cha-cha. Marcy lives on thrills, Celia is reconnecting with herself, and Deb’s quick tongue makes for perfect comedic moments. Through Celia’s descriptions, it seemed as though the trio had settled into an average lifestyle in t

Thank you Smith Publicity for the copy of this book - all opinions are my own.

This was such an unexpectedly fun and uplifting read! I read a lot of thrillers and this proved to be the perfect reading palate cleaners for me - a cozy mystery that had just enough suspense to hold my attention, and more than enough laughs to keep my giggling all the way through.

Maybe it was the fact that the story centers around a trio of women who have an amazing friendship - they are flawed and honest and caring a

Really fun and entertaining book

3 friends at an over 55 development in Florida live, laugh, and dance together until they are suspected of murdering the elderly inhabitants where they all live. From chapter to chapter you suspect everyone and the final few chapters pul it all together. This was a very enjoyable and engaging book and a perfect summer read.

I love mysteries with senior and this one was really good. The characters are fantastic, it's full of humour and tenderness and the plot is great.
A very good book, highly recommended!
Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC

I really feel like this book should have been split up into 2 or 3 books. There were too many plotlines to follow and too many characters to get to know. It wasn't a bad book, it just was too much.
