The Fog Ladies: Date With Death

 Love can be deadly.

 About the Book: The Fog Ladies count on each other like one relies on an early morning San Francisco fog burning off by midday. In their latest caper, Olivia Honeycut joins a senior dating service, meets a man, and promptly stumbles across a body whom one of her fellow romantics has just pitched over a cliff. The ‘fog ladies’ believe the killer is Olivia’s new honey. He’s too smooth; he’s lying about his past and the ‘ladies’ intend to find out why.

 Our Review: What a joy to meet a group of women who genuinely admire and respect each other—even when they agree to disagree—despite a disparity of backgrounds, life experiences, and interests. Of particular joy is Enid Carmichael whom, we’re convinced, would have held her own ‘back in the day’ of the swinging sixties, when women weren’t as liberated as we might have wished, had to tolerate unimaginable misogyny and social taboos, and still succeeded. Enid is a hoot and one of the true stars of this enchanting cozy mystery series. We look forward to book 5. Well done.

 Based on a scale of 1-5, The Fog Ladies: Date With Death merits a 5.
