Several residents from Camden-sur-Mer retirement home decide to take a trip to Mexico for Halloween, and while there, one of them dies of a heart attack. No one thinks too much of it, because of the victim's age. But then, on a following trip to Ensenada, someone else dies, and two senior sleuths, Angela and Caledonia, decide to investigate what they are sure is murder.
This had a decent mystery, and I liked the fact that the local police didn't treat the two women like they were merely indulging them in their 'whims'. That was a nice change. However, personally I didn't findthe book all that funny.
Some of the reasons were that most of the people were just plain annoying, including the two main characters. I know there are grumpy people out there (yes, many think all elderly people are grumpy, but not me); yet almost all of them carped about one thing or another constantly. It was beginning to get on my nerves. Not one of them seemed like anyone I would have wanted to spend more time with. All they did was complain. In fact, I don't remember any of them being nice at all. Since this was a later book in the series, I may try starting with the first one. Perhaps if I start from the beginning, Angela and Caledonia may not seem so much a pain as they do in this book.
