Murder on the Bucket List is the best kind of cozy mystery – inviting, engaging, intelligent, warm, and witty. Elizabeth Perona’s ensemble cast of senior sleuths puts out a welcome mat I couldn’t refuse, and you shouldn’t either. What’s on my bucket list? Moving to Brownsburg, Indiana and joining the members of the Summer Ridge Bridge Club for their next adventure. I can’t wait!”
