Title: In For A Penny
Author: Kelsey Browning and Nancy Naigle
Stars: 4 out of 5
These two authors have combined their immense talents to create a new group of older sleuths. These ladies do not let things get in their way while solving the crime before them. If you enjoy cozy mysteries, with little violence and subtle humor, this is the beginning of a series that you will not want to miss out on reading.
I rated this book at four stars and feel safe in recommending for readers aged 13 and older.

Honey, these are not your momma’s grannies…
When Lillian Summer Fairview’s husband up and dies on her, it leaves the last living member of the most prestigious family in Summer Shoals, Georgia, in a hot mess. While Lil was busy being a proper Southern lady, Harlan squandered dang near the whole family fortune on lottery tickets. To keep her financial skeletons in the closet and give him a decent burial, Lil made a deal that has now landed her in prison. Desperate to keep her troubles a secret and the family estate from falling down while she pays her debt to society, Lil entrusts Summer Haven’s care to her best friend, Maggie, who recruits two more over-fifty ladies to live at Summer Haven and help keep it afloat. But when Maggie discovers that Lil’s restitution is ten times the amount she “borrowed” from the federal government, she’s convinced Lil has taken the fall for someone else’s crime. And these gals will use every trick in their little-old-lady bags to prove it
