    1 thought on “Retirement Can Be Murder

    1. Carol and Jim Andrews are members of the Baby Boomer generation are thus at an age when the timing of retirement is a viable decision to consider. One glaring consequence of retirement is that Jim will be spending more time around the house. Carol loves her husband, but him being in the house all day would be too much husband. So Carol decides to do something about the situation. She arranges (i.e manipulates) to have her husband seek the advice of a professional retirement coach. Good plan, but [...]

    2. Finally a cozy mystery with a heroine who is middle-aged, married, and a mother. In "Retirement Can Be Murder" our heroine is Carol Andrews, whose husband Jim is contemplating retirement from his stressful New York PR job. Carol entices Jim to visit a trendy retirement counsellor, but no sooner has Jim met the man than the counsellor is found dead--apparently murdered. Because Jim is the last person to see the man, Jim falls under suspicion, and Carol undertakes her own investigation--aided by h [...]

    3. After reading the other reviews I thought i would like this one, I love cozy's and am looking for characters i can relate to and lots of humor. I only got about halfway through this and gave up. The main character, Carol, is upset because her husband wants to retire. She has a group of friends that seem like characters that i would like, they come together to support one another. But to me Carol was whining and self absorbed. Her husband, Jim, was wimpy and kind of needy. This book just didn'tcl [...]

    4. Not since first picking up one of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum books, have I ever laughed or enjoyed a book so much as Santangelo’s “Retirement can be Murder”.Jim and Carol Andrews, a typical, baby-boomer, over sixty couple: him, controlling, quiet, unwilling to communicate, her, dutiful, sweet and knows when to shut up. The one thing Jim can’t control however is how Carol thinks—and she is funny!Carol thinks she’s being smart, steering Jim toward speaking with the well-known r [...]

    5. I could relate to this story as I have had friends who have worried about their spouse's retirement. This story is told by Carol who is a silly stay-at-home wife with two adult children and three very close friends. She talks often to her two dogs, Lucy and Ethel. Carol's plotting and outrageous fantasies are similar to those antics of Lucy Ricardo in "I Love Lucy." The author has funny questions and answers about retirement at the beginning of each of the 30 chapters, such as: Q: What's the fir [...]

    6. This book caught my attention on page one with it's incredibly truthful chapter headings that had me roaring in laughter! Susan Santangelo is a author and on Facebook and is one terrific Author to boot. It is about a wife's internal feelings about her hubby's upcoming retirement (with a murder mystery thrown in for a bonus!) I liked the characters, the settings, the mystery was solid and the book flowed.Please go out and discover this author!

    7. Don't botherSorry to say I did not like this book. Her 'beloved' was so pompous that I kept hoping he was the murderer after all, even though he was the obvious suspect. She should have kicked him to the curb. Don't waste your time on these snippy people. I won't be reading any other books in this series. Retirement has to be better than this!

    8. I really can't stand the way Carol lets her husband, Jim, treat her. He yells at her, he belittles her opinions. Why does she call him "My Beloved"? I can't imagine any woman tolerating a marriage like hers.

    9. Endless yacking, not much mystery, clumsy character development, slow paced, couldn't finish it. Yuck.

    10. Funny cozy readCarol faces a daunting prospect, her husband is thinking of Retiring.!! They go to see a retirement counsellor, who is later murdered. Carol’s husband Jim becomes a suspect, and she tries to prove his innocence by solving the murder. Quite funny in parts and entertaining, especially the end of chapter quotes which had me laughing every time. I didn’t enjoy the way Jim the husband treated and spoke to Carol, probably why she dreaded his retirement so much. I didn’t really eng [...]

    11. A new author for me. I had high hopes for this series, but found the first installment to be just O.K. There were multiple editing errors (i.e. missing words) and a bit of unnecessary profanity. I thought that it would be much funnier, and at times I found the book repetitive. Plus it was obvious who the killer was, and yet the ending was drawn out. That said, I will still try the next in the series as I don't want to give up on it yet.

    12. ‘Retirement Can Be Murder’ is an nice little cozy mystery with an interesting plot and some good one liners. The characters are fun and interesting but the plot was a bit straightforward. While I didn’t know why the killer did it until the end I could tell who it was pretty early in the story. The writing is good an I’ll definitely move on in the series when I’m in the mood for a similar type book. If you like cozy mysteries this is story should be right up your alley.

    13. Is he guilty?A murder and having to find a way to keep Jim from going to prison for it sure can be draining. Carol shows us that a wife will do what is needed to make sure that her husband stays home. or can she? All the evidence points to him.

    14. Great and entertaining I read this book after reading the second one in this series. I love her writing and her humor hits home in many ways. I look forward to reading each one in this series!

    15. Jim Andrews is talking about retirement, and Carol isn't too happy about it. She checks out retirement planning services, and by talking about it on the phone with a friend convinces her husband to see a counselor, Davis Rhodes. Jim is convinced he has convinced Davis to let Jim do an ad campaign for him. Then Carol hears that Davis is going to give a presentation on a TV show that Jim hadn't planned. Jim goes to see Davis on his way home from work, and finds Davis dead. The police suspect Jim a [...]

    16. CuteThis was a cute story. It ended happily, which is always appreciated, well mostly always! It took me awhile to get through this book; it was good, but not compelling.

    17. Carol is freaking out because her husband, Jim, wants to retire. She hopes to dissuade him by hooking him up with a retirement coach. The retirement coach is meant to give him direction and help him find purpose in his retirement, or, as Carol hopes, convince him it's too soon to retire. Instead Jim becomes so excited by the retirement coach that he decides to take him on as a new client at his PR firm. Unfortunately when no contract is signed and Jim finds out that his new client is making a ma [...]

    18. Carol can't wait to meet her friends for lunch. When they sit down at Maria's, their usual place to eat, she begins her rant about how Jim has announced that he is going to retire. When his old boss passed away and his wife, who had inherited the company brought in a young man to take over, things began to go downhill for Jim. He hated the way the new boss ran things which were very atypical of an office setting and felt as though the young people that the new boss hired didn't pull their weight [...]

    19. Carol Andrews and her Beloved Husband, Jim, are members of the fastest growing demographic in history, the Baby Boomer generation. Jim has started thinking about retiring because he isn’t really happy with all the new changes at work. Carol has her own routine and the last thing she needs is Jim hanging around the house all day.

    21. the ice cream bread recipe sounds really good and i can't wait to try it!the book is a nice, very quick read and a kinda realistic peek (i think, anyway)into the lives of female upper-middle class aarp'ers. i have hundreds of friends like this.i especially like that main character, carol, has 3 bffs who always have each other's backs. they are a little bit on the goody-2-shoes side. nevertheless, the women are loyal, honest, smart, and resourcefulrol and husband, jim (her 'beloved'), raised 2 ch [...]

    22. Labeled as a "baby-boomer" mystery this is a fun new series written by Susan Santangelo. Written from the point of view of a woman who has just launched her two children and thinks she has gotten her days and the house to herself , she about to confront not only a boomerang child, but a husband contemplating retirement.Santangelo has a clever writing style even the quotes used at the heading of each chapter are fun to readEach chapter had a quote about marriage, retirement or menr example:"Q: Wh [...]

    23. Santangelo pens an absolute delightful story starring Carol Andrews, unofficial sleuth.Carol Andrews starts a ball rolling with the worry that her husband will actually do what he’s been threatening to for years—retire. The type that is born to meddle (I mean assist), Carol tricks her husband Jim into an appointment with retirement coach, Davis Rhodes.

    24. Retirement Can Be Murder proved to be a perfect 'lighter read'.just at a time I was in need of a less intense read! Ironically, reading about Carol & Jim's ongoing escapades were very easy to followd often proved similar to the adventures in my life!If you're looking for a book with layers of intrigue, THIS would not be for you. However, if you're looking for some comic relief that includes a bit of mystery, THIS might prove to be a good match!SIDE NOTE: Am I the ONLY person who has never he [...]

    25. Jim and Carol, a retirement aged couple from the baby boom generation, decide to seek retirement counseling from a new "hip" retirement counselor. The counselor is murdered and since Jim was the first to find the body and call the police, and since he was known to have argued with him, Jim became the probable suspect. Carol and her group of friends are somewhat amateur sleuths and work together to get Jim off the hook. Jim and Carol have adult children and friends who are all good people and who [...]

    26. This is the first in a series of baby boomer mysteries. Carol is dismayed when her husband Jim, unhappy with the management at his public relations job, wants to take early retirement. His presence at home all day would eat into her comfortable lifestyle. As a delaying tactic, she manipulates him to sign up with a retirement coach, which leads to trouble when the man is murdered. Not only is Jim a leading suspect--he found the body!--but someone seems to be actively pointing the police in Jim's [...]

    27. Retirement Can Be MurderI thoroughly enjoyed this first of the series and I am looking forward to reading the others in the series. Carol is semi-retired, when her husband begins talking about early retirement, she is at a loss. She finds a retirement coach and that sets the story in motion. When her husband finds the coach dead and is the prime suspect in the case, Carol- with help from her best friends and family- sets out to find the true murderer. I admit, I had partly figured out who did it [...]

    28. Very enjoyableBeing a recent retiree, I was drawn to the title, and I love mysteries. Enjoyed the riddles at the beginning of each chapter. The story was interesting and well written. The only thing that bothered me was the pagination, which didn't adjust, so there were hyphenated words in the middle of sentences, and not the one that was supposed to be. I would recommend the book. Well worth your time.
