Synopsis
The septuagenarian women of the Summer Ridge Bridge Club have gathered in secret late one July night to check skinny dipping off their bucket list. But as Francine observes, the jittery members seem more obsessed with body issues and elaborate preparations than actually stripping down and getting in the pool. A pungent smell emanating from the pool shed provides a perfect distraction. When a dead body flops out, it’s an answered prayer for Charlotte, since the first item on her list is to solve a murder.
Unfortunately for Charlotte and Francine, before they can discover who really killed the man, they must negotiate neighborhood tours of the crime scene, press coverage of their skinny dipping, an angry Homeowner’s Association, a disastrous appearance on Good Morning America, media offers sought by a hungry publicist, and a clever killer.

GUEST POST

3 Partners in Shopping Nana, Mommy, & Sissy, Too! would like to thank author Tony Perona for being with us today;

What’s On Your Bucket List?

(Tony)

In the new novel by my daughter Liz and me, the septuagenarian women of Murder on the Bucket List are trying to get through the strange and wonderful items on their list but keep stumbling over dead bodies. Many people ask if we have our own bucket lists. Liz says she thinks she’s too young, but I was about her age when I started creating a bucket list.

It happened during a trip to paradise.

When my daughters were little, we would travel to Florida a couple of times a year to visit my in-laws. They had retired and left Indiana several years before Liz was born. Jim was an avid golfer and wanted to be somewhere he could play year-round; Marge played golf, too, but was more enthralled about being out of the snow and cold. We’d fly into Fort Myers, they’d pick us up, and we’d spend a week in paradise. Seriously, it was paradise. The kids adored them, and my in-laws were marvelous hosts. Marge, who might have been the best mother-in-law ever, was quick to fix my favorite foods, especially lemon meringue pie. We totally and completely unwound from the stress of our work-a-day lives. It was then I thought, this is how I want to retire. Living in paradise. That became my first bucket list item.

Times change, of course, and that #1 item has changed. Florida is no longer paradise. While I fully intend to retire from my day job in town government, I don’t see us moving anywhere. The need I had to “get away from it all” is more easily met now that it’s just Deb and me. (And who wants to be that far away from their grandchildren? ) Leaving Indiana for good is not going to happen.

But paradise is still on my bucket list. It’s just that I don’t want to live there now, I want to visit. The world is full of amazing things. Debbie and I love to see new places, hike new paths, learn new truths, experience new wonders. To me, this is where I find paradise. My bucket list is populated with destinations.

What it doesn’t have are the type of items the ladies have. I don’t need to skinny dip, be on the front page of a major metropolitan newspaper, or have sexy, pinup types photos taken (which happens in book #2). Those we just made up.

Do you have a bucket list? If you do, we’d love to hear from you about what’s on it. Please send any items you’d love to see us explore in our tales of the Summer Ridge Bridge Club gang. We can be reached at peronaelizabeth@gmail.com.
