About the Book
Who would leave a newborn baby in the bathtub of a condo in Sunset Acres, a retirement community, and why?

And was a young woman slain behind the convenience store across the highway it’s mother?

Janie and the Bunco Biddies want to find out, but soon they discover sleuthing can get a bit dicey.

My Review
Sunset Acres might be for golden-agers, but those golden-agers can find a lot of ways to get into trouble when they try hard enough. This time the neighbor ladies dish up an international conspiracy, starting with a baby in the bathtub of the victim of the last Bunco Biddies story.

The latest adventure of the weekly bunco bunch poses the question of how useful can a person feel when one phase of life is over? Janie may be a golden-ager, but she’s still got a lot of vigor. Through her desire to keep hold of the best parts of pre-Sunset Acre years, she manages to grow closer to her son-in-law the detective, who not only needs her sleuthing help, but this time is willing to admit it. Through the experienced deductive reasoning of the biddies and some questionable detective techniques, law enforcement in Alamoville Texas gets a new spin on always getting their man.

I realized with a bit of surprise that I’ve aged into Sunset Acres. I could easily see myself joining Janie, Ethel, Mildred, Betsy Ann, and the crew. That thought put a new light on Cosgrove’s series and made them a little more fun for me. Told in multiple viewpoints, including the villains, Bunco Baby will leave you guessing about the latest crime wave and how widespread a terrifying gruesome practice has become.

Recipes included. I don’t know about you, but I’m going to bake some lemon bars pronto.
