Greener Pastures is gearing up for a Shuffleboard Tournament to give the seniors a break from the nightly bingo games. Herman has never played shuffleboard, yet he allows himself to get talked into playing on one of the teams.

Meanwhile, Lance has brought Marcy and the Senior Sleuths a new Cold Case to work on. The victim, Nelson Greeley, was a veteran who was killed in his home. Initial evidence, what little there was, seemed to indicate a possible robbery gone wrong. Looking over the crime scen

What a fun, lighthearted cozy! I can't imagine anyone not loving this book. To be honest, this is my first book by M K Scott, & I'm not even sure how I ended up on their mailing list,but was offered this book as an ARC to read & review. I think the best compliment I can give it is that I so thoroughly enjoyed it that I've already purchased the first 2 books in the series!!
The characters are each unique personalities, and you really get to know them. The plot moves along at a nice pace, not at a

The Senior Sleuths have a new cold case — an elderly man, Nelson Greeley, was murdered and his dog, Soldier, is missing — but the real excitement isn’t criminal: lifelong bachelor Herman, who’s always felt he missed his one chance at love, is entranced by retired showgirl Lola. And raising the fun factor even more, the newest activity is shuffleboard, with teams promptly forming: Eunice heads an all-ladies squad, while Gus competes against his lady friend with Herman and Marcy in tow.

Book 3 in the laugh out loud over the hill gang series does not disappoint! The Senior Sleuths, residents at a independent/ assisted living facility help the police solve cold cases. Of course Marcy, staying at the facility to recuperating from a gunshot, while her partner brings her cold cases to keep her busy. The senior's insights have helped before, so when a cold case of a murdered veteran comes their way, they are excited to get to the bottom of it and find the murderer. At the same time t ...more

The Senior Sleuths have another cold case to solve. This time it's the death of a veteran. The case isn't that old, it just went cold very fast. The victim's dog has disappeared also. It is discovered that he had a coin collection which can't be found. Could this be the reason for the murder?
Herman is sweet on Lola and they decide to go for a drive and get ice cream. They start talking about the case and decide they should go to the victim's house and search for an inventory sheet for the coin

Lance gets not one but two dogs!

A great read. Loved the way Lance gets dragged into everything and the fact that he ends up with not just being saddled with one dog but two. The mystery actually was more front and centre with this read but it is their relationships that are so enthralling. As everyone, well apart from our resident Casanova Jake, starts getting paired off the antics just get better. Regardless of whether you are a teen or in your silver age, love can turn your whole world upside

A fun entry in a series that is about retired people living in a long term care facility that still have a lot of living to do! They have formed a group (Silver Sleuths) that help a recovering policewoman at the facility solve cold cases. Combine seniors sleuthing, facility living and activities, a trip to the dog shelter, and sweet romance to have a book that always has something fun going on. Each book in this series has been quite different from the previous one, and they all have been intere ...more

Never under estimate seniors-NEVER! They will get things done by hook or by crook! Police can't solve a crime--give it to this bunch of senior characters (and they are all lovable characters)--and even a old cold case will get solved!!

Of course they do have to sneak around--a lot. Luckily one of them has a car and is allowed out of the senior residence---the others just happen to go along for the ride (or sneak into the car!).

Meanwhile there is going to be a shuffleboard competition (hey it is b

No spoilers. It's so refreshing to read a book that isn't from the point of view of a 20-something. I like that's it's about more mature characters who still have a lot to contribute to life. I have to admit that I got a little irritated at Herman for being so negative, but at the end, he came into his own and seemed more positive. It was fun to view events from a senior viewpoint, and the author accurately portrayed the pettiness that comes from living in a senior living environment, which was ...more

I am never disappointed by the books written by this author, and of course this one is no exception. The seniors at the aged care facility get bored very easily and bingo every day is just not one. After a suggestion from one of the residents, a shuffleboard competition is being held. The oldies are every bit as competitive as any young person, so they are busy stacking there teams with ringers - if they can. Whilst this is happening the group help Marcie with police cold cases is given a case r ...more

This story is about some senior citizens that live in a nursing home and all the gossip, friendships, and 'hooking ups' that a place like that can handle. Here there are a few of them that actually help the police solve cold cases. Crack open this book and get to know them, their personalities, problems and of course how they can solve another cold case. Oh and this one has a shuffleboard tournament going for it too. Sit back and get ready to laugh at these wonderful characters. I voluntarily re ...more

Late for Shuffleboard is a delightful mystery with senior citizen sleuths. I am glad I am not in charge of the assisted living facility where these sleuths reside. I cannot imagine trying to corral them! These quirky folks are amazing as they help Marcy, the recovering detective, solve cold cases. Everyone has plenty of time to look over these old cases and come up with some new information. If you enjoy cozy mysteries and look for main characters over 30, this series is a must!

The senior sleuths are at it again. What a fun and entertaining story. Love this series. These seniors are not the type to sit and wait for their time to be up, they are getting out and causing havoc and solving murder mysteries. The gang is great, love them and all their quirky ways. The senior center they live in has their hands full trying to keep them in line. However, as spry and alert seniors, they are not about to sit and play bingo without also playing detectives.

I love this series featuring senior citizens who investigate cold cases. This time they investigate the death of a Veteran, while preparing for a shuffleboard tournament. This book is skillfully written with a fun plot, entertaining characters and a great deal of humor. There are multiple story lines within this cozy mystery. I’m looking forward to the next book! I was given this book free and chose to make a voluntary, unbiased review.

Another great story

Just finished my second book with the Way Over The HillGang and I loved it as much as the first. You can actually visualise the group of people as you’re reading and there is plenty of exciting things for them to do in solving cold cases. I am gonna be on the lookout for any other OTTG books. Go on treat yourself , you spend more on a coffee.

Valuable coins, a blooming romance, and competition

Love the quirky characters who stumble into clues and get up the courage to take chances, both in investigating and in romance. The cold case intrigues the reader while the aging characters interact like teens in the blush of new love and sporting competition. Highly recommended.

Be prepared to laugh as these seniors citizens are a hand full! I adored Herman and Lola the most. The book kept me guessing as it had plenty of twists and turns. I can't imagine letting this group out of my sight! Too bad I had to read book 3 first as I would have loved to see how this group got started. ...more

this book was a joy to read because it was about elderly people who call themselves the 'super sleuths ' . The characters were vibrant and leapt of the pages. It was funny and dramatic at times.

Love this group of senior sleuths led by recuperating Marcy. They may be elderly but their minds are not feeble and their hearts are strong. Love the little side stories . Cannot wait to read more of this series. I was given a free ARC by the author. My review is freely and honestly given

Late for Shuffleboard was a good book. The Senior sleuths and having dogs in the story was really a good idea. I liked how the characters told the story their way. A good read.

Brilliant ❣️ as ever ❣️ As a septuagenarian, the ONLY way I would ever even consider living in a Seniors Home would be if I was a member of a Golden Sleuths gang 😏
