The Skinny-Dipping Grandmas enjoy a male stripper show . . . until it gets too hot to handle and nearly goes up in flames

When Mary Ruth’s company is hired to cater a fundraiser fea- turing the Royal Buckingham Male Dance Revue, the ladies see the chance to cross another item off their bucket list: helping divorcée Joy McQueen get over her decades-old fear of men in the buff. But when fundraiser sponsor Camille Ledfelter is stabbed to death, the women must uncover the naked truth about who wanted her dead.

Proving who did it, however, will require dodging a persistent stripper-for-hire, surviving the American Legion Bingo, drinking high-end cognac, searching for a certain 3-D printer, and laying bare the motives of a dangerous killer.


"Mirth and murder make for a winning combination in this cozy whose sleuths are as quirky as the suspects."—Kirkus Reviews

"A fun mystery with multiple strip scenes and food accidents. These lively senior amateur sleuths will appeal to fans of Rita Lakin's 'Gladdy Gold' mysteries."—Library Journal
"The opening Magic-Mike-gone-wrong scene is funny and Charlotte, Francine, and the other ladies are wonderful characters who make me believe my dream of one day becoming a private detective while living in a nursing home can come true."—Jamie Canaves, Book Riot 
"Readers who want their cozy mixed with a lot of slapstick humor, shouldn't miss this one."
