These books just keep getting worse and worse Thankfully this one was devoid of the other books past indiscretions like having a friend meet someone and fall in love on the trip and all the political talk I do love how the author manages to make me feel like I m always in the places described and eating the food they are Too bad that kind of detail doesn t go into the mystery which any 3rd grader could solve.
I don t know why so many of the senior sleuth series have 5 main characters It s too much and none of the characters get developed like they need to in order to make the series really engaging Then there s all the minutiae of each of the multitude of characters and it bogs down the story I enjoy this series just barely enough to keep reading.
just two words Pure Fun loved it
Their adventure in Rio Seeing Sugar Loaf Mountain and The Christ over looking Rio Gina being kidnapped by the killer of the 3 people and stealing money from the hotel that Hoofers was staying on them.

Some of this novel strains credulity, and I really don t want to be anywhere these women travel, but it s nice to read about a group of strong women in their 50s I hadn t read any of the previous books in the series but that wasn t a problem as I was able to slip right into the book You ll like this if you enjoy cozies even if there are a lot of dead bodies with a unique set of characters Nicely written Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.
This is a fun read A group of women in their 50 s who met in a dancing class and then dided to form a group to perform Latin dances This book they travel to Rio and stay at the Copacabana to perform several nights Of course one of them stumbles upon a murder and then can t resist to question why she was murdered It s very perplexing for them all and one finds herself in danger Read to find out what happens Also the description of the food and the sights is amazing.
I started this series several books in and that may be why I had such a hard time getting immersed in the story I did like the way the writer wrote and described scenes etc and I will go back to get the other books in this series Thank you to Netgalley and Kensington Books for this free copy and my unbiased opinion.
Great new edition to the series Good, suspenseful story It keeps you hanging till the end of the book The description of the sites in Rio makes me want to go there The food and recipes made me hungry.
good strong female characters who are out to enjoy life.
Bad Just really, really bad.
They just keep getting better and better
Highly entertaining, dramatic, and entirely unlikely Very hard to put down once started with ever engaging characters
