Praise For Murder at the River Bend Retirement Resort
by Stan Schatt
Murder at the River Ben Retirement Resort is an intriguing blend of the crime/mystery and the rest of Miriam’s life. There is a very pleasant balance between the two factors…
A cozy mystery unlike any I have ever read, MURDER AT THE RIVER BEND RETIREMENT RESORT was a quick paced read that was entertaining from beginning to end.
~Lisa Ks Book Reviews
Stan Schatt wrote an attractive cozy mystery in which he interlaces the mystery plot with the main character’s life, offering us a plus by her exploration as a person.
I enjoyed our two major characters, Miriam and the sheriff. They play well off of each other…
I immediately found myself drawn into the world of not-quite-senior sleuth Miriam Lipsky as she tries to find out whodunit.
This is a solid mystery, with reasonable markers for the culprit but enough red herrings to keep the reader uncertain.
