Here’s another person asking for help in identifying an author or mystery series. This is from Linda:
“… I’m looking for a book series (I don’t know how many are in the series) about a few (or several) senior women who think they’re too young to go to a retirement home, or they live in a retirement home and go on trips?????? I used to work at Barnes and Noble years ago and can’t remember if they are a mystery series or not.
Does this ring a bell with you?
Thank you for your help.
And, here is an addendum from Linda:
“I think the women may even live at a retirement home and go on road trips….?????? I’m not sure.”
Again, I will ask you to drop us a comment if you think you might be able to help identify this author/series. Thank you!
Sorry, I can’t help, but this sounds like a good series. I hope someone can shed some light on the author.
I believe she is talking about Essie Cobb Senior Sleuth Mysteries by Patricia Rockwell. They live in a retirement home and go on field trips etc.
The first book is called Bingo’d.
Could she be thinking of the Corrine Holt Sawyer books. Some were set in the retirement home near San Diego but they went to another retirement home, a health spa and Mexico. The 2 sleuths were admiral widows. This is a favorite series of mine.
Could it be the Murder Is….series by Rita Lakin? The characters are senior citizens who live in a retirement community and solve murders.
Or maybe the Gladdy Gold series by Rita Lakin? They are in a condo complex in Florida.
Sue I thought of Rita Lakin too.

All of these listed sound like really good series
Thats right, exactly what came to mind,
The Gladdy Gold, Murder is Series by Rita Lakin.
What a terrific series at that !

Seems to me, if I remember right, the front cover of this book has a cruise ship with the ladies waving their hats as the ship leaves port

Thanks, again, for the recommendations. Hopefully, one of these senior sleuth mystery series is the one Linda is looking for.
Corrine Holt Sawyer – Benbow & Wingate Mystery Series
Rita Lakin – Gladdy Gold Mystery Series
Patricia Rockwell – Essie Cobb Senior Sleuth Mystery Series (1. Bingoed, 2. Papoosed, 3. Valentined

Love the Rita Lakin Gladdy Gold series. Very funny and a quick read. I’d love to come across another similar series that is as enjoyable to read.
