    3. This is the second book in "A Bucket List Mystery". I did not read the first one and I would recommend to anyone starting this series, to read the first one before this one. It took me a while to figure out all the characters, their relationships and the constant references to "The Skinny Dipping Grandmas". Once I got into the story, it was quite enjoyable.The group of ladies from the bridge club all have bucket lists with 60 things. While fulfilling one of them, making a risque calendar, the gr [...]

    4. Murder under the Covered Bridge takes the baton from Murder on the Bucket List and runs with it in this frolic of a cozy mystery. These delightful women seem destined to stumble upon bucket list items at every turn. Francine and Charlotte show us the pleasures and the pitfalls of being best friends, while Mary Ruth bakes us right into the kitchen. If you don't have a snack handy, you're going to need to put this fascinating story down to fetch one. I'm hoping there will be a Mary Ruth recipe boo [...]

    5. The Summer Ridge Bridge Club ladies are working their way through their "Sixty Lists," each woman's list of sixty things she wants to do before she dies. Getting caught doing one of the early items earned them the sobriquet "The Skinny-Dipping Grandmas." They're now working on another item, a sexy pin-up calendar, and they, or at least most of them, do not want to get caught doing this one.The last picture that needs to be taken is Francine's, in a horse-drawn carriage, at the Roseville Covered [...]

    6. The ladies from “Murder on the Bucket List” are back with a few more “wrinkles” to keep us entertained and amused! “Murder Under the Covered Bridge” re-creates the satisfying concoction of the first book with its intriguing plot, humorous characters, and historical settings as the backdrop for Francine, Charlotte, Joy, Alice, and Mary Ruth to again cross off new adventures on their bucket list.Each grandmotherly member of the Summer Ridge Bridge Club has their own “60 item bucket l [...]

    7. If you enjoy reading novels with main characters "of a certain age," then the latest book in the Bucket List Series is for you. Murder Under the Covered Bridge showcases mature ladies Francine, her best friend Charlotte, as well as friends Alice, Joy, and Mary Ruth using their experience and wisdom to solve the mystery of Francine's cousin, William. Even though there are 5 main characters, their distinct personalities, physical characteristics, and professions make them easily distinguishable an [...]

    8. This is an enjoyable and gently paced cosy mystery. A group of seniors are trying to cross a number of items off their bucket lists which leads to them doing increasingly saucy or dangerous activities. The ladies apparently gained the sobriquet of the skinny dipping grandmas in the previous book. Now we see them setting up a photo shoot under a covered bridge on the day of a historical fair in town. This photo is for a saucy calendar. But a man is chased towards them through the cornfield, with [...]

    9. I loved this book! The main characters are a group of 60 year old and over women from Indiana who each made a bucket list. In their first episode, MURDER ON THE BUCKET LIST, a foray into skinny dipping gave them national recognition due to coverage by Good Morning America. Now they’re back knocking off another wish or two. MURDER UNDER THE COVERED BRIDGE starts with a sexy calendar shoot involving a carriage and a covered bridge. And this activity turns into a shooting (with guns, not the came [...]

    10. This is a fun and entertaining light mystery featuring mature adults (being closer than I'd like to their age, I'm avoiding the "senior" word here) and their 60 item bucket lists as well as a hidden agenda or two. Although humor lightens the mood, there is the matter of William's murder and no shortage of frightening events that seem too convenient to not be related. Francine and Charlotte and the other ladies manage to bake up a storm, make corn fritter donuts and unearth family history in shor [...]

    11. I had the privilege of being able to read this in ARC format, and enjoyed it immensely. I love the cast of characters in this book, which is the sequel to Murder on the Bucket List that was released a year ago today. The story covers another of the Summer Ridge Bridge Club’s attempts at marking off another item on their bucket lists. In the process someone is murdered and the Bridge Club ladies, of course, become involved.The story captures the feeling of fairly small town Indiana and its inha [...]

    12. The wonderful women of a certain age are back again trying to fulfill more items on their Sixty Lists. This time it's making a calendar with tasteful pinup photos. Francine chose to use the Bridge Festival to take old fashioned photos in a covered bridge where her ancestor had a scandalous encounter. Only in the middle of the photo shoot shots are fired from a field nearby. When Francine's cousin is found at the creek edge under the bridge the women put their sleuthing skills to use and Francine [...]

    13. Francine, Charlotte and the rest of the gang are still trying to cross items off their Sixty Lists. While re-enacting a scene from Francine's family history for a photo shoot, they witness -- something, but they aren't sure what. Does someone think they know more than they really do? As a fan of covered bridges, the title of this book caught my eye right away. When I realized it follows up a book I liked last year, I couldn't wait to read it. While I enjoyed the story and the mystery, I found so [...]

    14. This is the perfect book to read while relaxing at the beach or poolside. I had not read the first book in the series (Murder on the Bucket List), but it was easy to jump right in with the characters and the plotline of this book nonetheless. The group of friends in this book reminded me of my group of friends in high school, just aged several decades :) They were very different from one another but were always there for each other when they needed their friends the most. The allure of solving t [...]

    15. Murder under the Covered Bridge is one of those fun cozies that you just hate to end. In this second book in the series, the seniors of the Summer Ridge Bridge Club once again finds themselves in the midst of mayhem: a potential homicide, family secrets, a Sexy Calendar Girl photo shoot, and the threat of Mary Ruth running out of her famous corn fritter donuts at the covered bridge festival. The characters are so well developed, I felt like I was sitting around the table with them as they worked [...]

    16. I really enjoyed this book! The setting was awesome and I felt like I got a slightly better picture of the characters. I still feel somewhat overwhelmed by the sheer number of characters. There were 10 main characters and while they were better developed than in the previous book it still leads to a lot of extraneous "stuff" going on that doesn't contribute to the real story (which sometimes gets lost in the muddied waters). Killing off Alice's character would go a long way to tidying things up. [...]

    17. Murder Under the Covered Bridge is so good! I haven't read the first in the series yet (but I'm buying it soon!), but I was able to jump right into the book with minimal/no confusion on characters. After the first couple chapters I was hooked, hoping for long naps from my toddler so I could read more, undisturbed. The characters are funny, the plot is complex enough to keep the pages turning, and I love that it's set in Indiana - reminds me of home! You've got a new fan!Note: I received an ARC f [...]

    18. Bridge club members continue their quest to complete their bucket lists on a remote covered bridge, but they encounter a man being shot at--and he turns out to be the cousin of one of the group members. What're the odds? Naturally, Charlotte and Francine investigate, as the others try to keep Mary Ruth's booth at the covered bridge festival supplied with baked goods. There's a rather unbelievable (to me, at least) conclusion, but still this was an enjoyable ride.

    19. A fun, light-hearted mystery that was an enjoyable read. I hadn’t read the first book in The Bucket List series and it took me a while to work out each the characters and the references back to their exploits in the first book. That all being said, it was a great holiday read and I really enjoyed the way the characters interacted with each other and the warmth and humour within the book. 3.5 stars from me.

    20. The Summer Ridge Bridge Club is at it again! Another mysterious circumstance occurs and the ladies, especially Francine, are in the middle of it. Clues, danger, food trucks, and, of course, covered bridges all come together for this exciting follow up to Murder on the Bucket List!

    21. This story is basically a good one, and I enjoyed that part of it, but I thought there was too much 'dithering' by some of the characters and too many side issues that detracted from the main point of the story.

    22. I have so enjoyed reading the latest release from Elizabeth Perona! It is filled with action and adventure and enough twists and turns to keep you guessing about what's going to happen next. Thanks for a great summer read!

    23. Once I finished Murder on the Bucket List I couldn't wait for more. Murder under the Covered Bridge did not disappoint! The characters are so fun and the story kept me reading until every mystery was solved. Great read!
