The Skinny-Dipping Grandmas Bare All When their Pinup Calendar Shoot Goes Terribly Wrong

Working on a television taping to promote the Parke County Covered Bridge Festival, the ladies decide to use their access to the Roseville Bridge to cross #39 off Charlotte’s bucket list: Be a Sexy Calendar Girl. But the photo shoot is interrupted by gunshots and Francine’s cousin William stumbling down the riverbank followed by a man with a gun. William sustains life-threatening injuries, but is it attempted homicide?

Francine and Charlotte go into detective mode to uncover the secret William knew about the shooter. Their success, however, depends on surviving two arson events, a séance, a shortage of Mary Ruth’s wildly popular corn fritter donuts, memory-challenged nursing home residents, and a killer who refuses to go up in flames.


"Perona crafts another clever adventure . . . with a magical ending, and the feisty and smart seniors are an engaging lot and will appeal to Agatha Raisin fans."—Booklist 

"Cozy fans will enjoy spending time with Francine and friends."—Publishers Weekly

"A wonderful cozy . . . This is one group that no matter what your age, you will want to join up with and have a whole lot of fun."—Suspense Magazine

"The second in this series spices up Perona's usual recipe with a little fantasy."—Kirkus Reviews

"Plenty of fun . . . After reading Murder Under the Covered Bridge, you'll have a new appreciation for these seniors who have plenty of rev left under the hood."—Mystery Scene

"If you miss getting new episodes of Murder, She Wrote every week, you should definitely check out the Bucket List mystery series. Thank goodness Perona has given these senior sleuths long bucket lists, so we can hope for many more adventures with them."—Donna Andrews, author of The Meg Langslow series

"Perona kept on building the case for the final result, and did it professionally and with great pacing as well as timing."—Reviewing the Evidence
