Retirement isn't always Enjoyable!

I really liked this book. A fun murder mystery. Hoping it is a series and looking forward to the next one if so. Thinking of retirement myself I could see where Gabe was lost in retirement with nothing to do and not sure what he wanted to do. His wife, Angie, his children and friends knew him better than he knew his self. The murder investigation is a set of revelations about the victim and the suspects and Gabe does figure out his dilemma of what to do in retirement.

Mystery of the Dinner Playhouse is a winner

Mike Befeler’s characters are real, funny, and older. How refreshing. No twenty-two year old bumbling around here. We have a recently retired police officer looking for a reason to stay retired. The searches run through this delightful story, along with his adoration of his wife, and his need to feel useful. I enjoyed this very much.
