HippieChick2 ♥ Part Deux ♥ 2013 is our year of FUN!!! ♥
This is the first in a series (Jake Russo Mysteries) I wasn’t really into this book until almost the end. The writing style was driving me crazy and I kept wanting to quit. Then at some point the writing got better. Like if a different writer took over or maybe someone said dude . . . this is crappy!
When Jake Russo is transferred from a New York City beat to a Florida retirement community, his reporting life slows down. Instead of covering life in the big city, he’s stuck writing puff pieces about bridge games and shuffleboard. His biggest challenge? Sticking to his diet.
That all changes when an older resident mysteriously dies on the beach. Jake has to figure out why and how she died. With the help of his bumbling octogenerian cameraman, Jake will have to overcome his lack of confidence and find the truth. He’ll discover love, conspiracy, and surprising secrets in Florida’s retirement communities
