This book was on the Indigo Must-Read list. Often, when I am looking for a book to read, I go on the Indigo website and see what they are recommending. Usually, I can find good reads. I always suggest doing this to people looking for a novel – but then again, you could just read one of my reviews and find a book that way!
The novel opens up with Martha, a senior citizen who is tired of living in her retirement residence. When she and her four friends decided to move into the retirement home, it had been owned by a wonderful group of people who had ensured that the care given to the elderly was of high quality. However, the new management is not so client-friendly and is more concerned with making money, leading to a steady decline in care and amenities provided to the senior citizens. Because of this, Martha and her four friends decide to commit a robbery, the likes of which no one has seen before.
This book has a similar vibe to the 100 year old man who climbed out the window and disappeared (which is definitely worth reading if you haven’t already read it). It’s cute – but not as cute as the 100 year old man. It’s got a bit of sweet romance and quite a bit of comedy and is overall a good book to read if you are in the mood for something light. Did it make a lasting impression and make me want to run out and buy a copy? No. But that doesn’t mean it was not a good book. It made me laugh and gave me a relaxing break from all of my stress and I thoroughly enjoyed the plot and all of the characters.
Happy reading ~
