What they say: It has been thirteen years since the elderly residents of Magnolia Court were scammed out of a comfortable retirement by an unscrupulous developer who took their money and ran.
A twist of fate leads Gabby, Uncle Max and Aunt Hetty’s niece to uncover the developer’s whereabouts.
Pointed in the right direction by Gabby, the residents draw on their life skills to overcome one obstacle after another in order to recover what is theirs by right.
No one should underestimate the tenacity and ingenuity of this charming and endearing bunch of senior citizens. Age and infirmity are set aside as they set out on their quest to seek retribution.
The Review: I knew from the second I heard about this book that it was right up my street. Anything that involves getting some form of justice for a wronged group is totally me! So in this book we not only follow the story of what has happened to Magnolia Court, where residents were scammed, it also takes us through each of the individuals we need to meet to piece the story together. I warmed to and loved some of the characters, wasn’t too fond of others, and took pleasure in others being inconvenienced.
The settings were great, putting us right there, not only as we read past articles and went through the history of events but also in the present day. In some cases the surroundings mirrored the decay that had taken place in lapsed time, while in other we found ourselves in luxury. The pacing suited me well, in particular when jumping from person to person, you felt you had to read on. Thanks so much to Anne Cater for allowing me to be part of this blog tour and for the book in return for an honest review.
