    2. The Summer Ridge Bridge Club is back in action in Murder at the Male Revue, the third book in the Bucket List Mystery series. The gals are all in their 70's and working on fulfilling all the things on their Sixty List -- a list of 60 things they all wrote out when in their 60's that they wanted to do before they die. As they work their way through their lists, they also manage to get embroiled in a murder mystery or two. :)This time, the group is helping their friend Joy work through her fear of [...]

    3. Murder at the Male Revue by cozy author Elizabeth Perona starts with an interesting concept for the protagonists - a group of septuagenarian bridge playing women who are members of the Summer Ridge Bridge Club. In Murder at the Male Revue, their reputations as crime solvers have already been established (Murder on the Bucket List, Murder Under the Covered Bridge) with the local law enforcement, as they've already helped solve a couple of murders. The mystery begins with a charity fundraiser head [...]

    4. This cozy didn't stick with me like the previous books in the series. Just didn't quite have the same humor and flair to it that the others had. But it did have multiple mysteries tied into one about who the killer was and how those pieces fit in. Once again our "elderly" ladies did solve the mystery and manage to cross off a few items on their bucket lists. I was given an eARC by the publisher through NetGalley.

    5. This was a cute story. I'm not familiar with this author, however, I found the story to be interesting. A group of women work together to solve the mysterious death of one of their own, Laughter and hijinks will keep you reading. These ladies sure know how to have a good time!I voluntarily read an ARC of this book provided by the publisher and NetGalley.

    6. I always seem to pick up a mystery series with the third book, but I always recommend readers start with the first one. The latest Bucket List mystery,Murder at the Male Revue, by Elizabeth Perona, is a fun book with a serious backstory.The septuagenarian members of the Brownsburg, Indiana Summer Ridge Bridge Club all have bucket lists. Joy McQueen's list includes "Go to a Male Strip Club". Joy, a reporter for the Indianapolis ABC affiliate, is now the announcer for the male revue fundraiser for [...]

    7. A group of seventy+-year-young women with bucket lists seem to also have the Jessica Fletcher syndrome of always finding themselves around a murder. This time a fun event of male strippers–catered by Mary Ruth and attended by the ladies to get one of those bucket list items crossed off–is cut short by the stabbing of the fundraiser’s sponsor, Camille Ledfelter. Charlotte (being a fan of mysteries) doesn’t care that the police find her to be a thorn in their side–warning her to stop try [...]

    8. “I don’t know how you and your friends always seem to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.”I personally believe they’re always, unintentionally, at the right place at the right time and thank God for that, otherwise, I doubt Camille’s murder investigation would’ve gone anywhere.Our, old but gold, ladies have once again found themselves on a mission to uncover a mystery while keeping us exceptionally entertained. It is not quite common to find “murder” and “on a positive not [...]

    9. The (mostly) proper ladies with their own bucket lists go to a male revue (it's all for charity, you know), partly to help their friend Joy, who has some hang-ups about the male sex. But this event is marred when the president of the local city council is stabbed. Is the motive political or personal? It hardly matters, because Charlotte is determined to find the killer before the police, no matter how angry it makes them, and no matter how much danger she and her best friend Francine get into.

    12. I rated this one star because I finished it. Third in a series that are supposed to be humorous cozies. Previous books were funny but it was a struggle to find any humor here. The series is supposed to be about 5 “skinny dipping grammas”. Without explanation one of the grammas is not included. (view spoiler)[I expected her missing would have a bearing on the plot but, nope, the authors just couldn’t be bothered to include her.(hide spoiler)] Also there is no additional character developmen [...]

    13. I 100% picked this up because of male strippers. I won't even lie. I was like, man they make cozy mysteries about EVERYTHING!! And then I read it in one day. I had no idea that this book was the third in a mystery series (Bucket List Mysteries) AND that it was set in Indiana AND that it was written by a Hoosier father daughter duo. Basically there is a group of senior ladies who are working on crossing items off their sixty lists (bucket lists) and finding dead bodies in the process. While they [...]

    14. I really enjoyed this cozy mystery. The protagonists are members of a local bridge club ( read seniors) who are hired to cater a fund raiser at the Male Revue (read naked dancing men) when one of their own is murdered. They set off to solve the case and it is hilarious. I laughed out loud in many spots and will look forward to reading the antics of these ladies in their other books. I received this advanced copy from Net Gallery in exchange for an honest review.

    15. Mary Ruth's company is hired to cater a fundraiser featuring the Buckingham Male Revue -- male strippers. During the auction, the fundraiser's sponsor is found with a wicked-looking knife lodged in her ribcage. Mary Ruth, Francine and the rest of the Bridge Club ladies get involved in figuring out whodunnit. I enjoyed the first two books in this series, but I was a bit disappointed with this installment. There were far too many characters to keep track of, and their possible motives made it even [...]

    16. No I did not finish this book -I didn't like it and thought that the mystery was kindergarten-ish, the thoughts of the women a tad lewd, finding out why Joy has a fear of naked men a bit to childish, and the fact that this is yet another story about 'strong' women thinking they can do better than the cops -been there, done that just one too many times.I didn't find any humor in this book and this is just one of the reasons that I did not finish it. When a mystery is touted to be humorous and isn [...]

    17. This cosy-mystery outing sees a quartet of detecting grannies investigating the murder of one of their own during a fundraising male strip show. Just the premises was enough to get my attention, and although the use of an "older" character to investigate has been done many a time, this had a more modern twist. This was easy to read, there was enough drama with shady business dealings, past secrets, blackmail, and of course, murder, to keep the read occupied.
