Nursing Homes Are Murder

Paul Jacobson, who suffers from short-term memory loss, becomes an undercover resident at a nursing home to help the Honolulu police track down a sexual assault perpetrator.

$13.99

The police give Paul the names of three persons-of-interest and Paul begins investigating. None of the three appear suspicious. Things go downhill when the woman who had been assaulted is found murdered. Paul meets interesting residents including a woman with synesthesia, a woman who eats soap and a woman who races wheelchairs. After another sexual assault, someone tries to smother Paul. Interrupting a third attempted sexual assault, Paul figures out who the culprit is. The bad guy tries to abduct Paul at gunpoint, but Paul escapes when a resident in an electric wheelchair runs into the bad guy.

quick, fun mystery

Eighty-year-old Paul Jacobson has been on vacation with his new wife and family in Honolulu when he is asked to go undercover. The job is to pose as a nursing home resident to help crack a case in a home where a few female residents have been robbed or sexually assaulted during the night. Paul agrees and his wife Marion is housed in a condo next door to the facility for the interim. Paul has a great memory by day but, come sundown confusion sets in and he must resort to writing things that happen in a journal. Paul and his blind, war veteran roommate get along great. As Paul snoops around meeting residents and asking questions, it seems like there are several potential suspects to keep tabs on. I was in need of a quick read, something totally different pre-election and, this cozy mystery that sat on my shelves for years fit the bill. I liked the humor, lots of funny things happened even though it was sometimes over done, I liked it. The quirky seniors made me smile. I learned afterward that this was a series book (book 6 of a 6 book series with Paul Jacobson as amateur – sleuth). Since I hadn’t read anything else by this author, I wondered what Paul’s job was pre-retirement? I’m guessing he might have been a detective as why would he have been asked to go under cover? Despite stepping in mid-stream, I still had fun with this one.

I enjoyed all six books in this series; mystery but lightened by the comedy made it easy reading.

Good Geezer Lit!

Geezer Lit! What a great concept! Love the character’s optimism in the face of short term memory loss. Just the right amount of cantankerous; just the right amount of mystery. and suspense. I can relate to the characters.

THE EXCITEMENT GETS STRONGER WITH EACH PAGE!

This book is so filled with terrific characters, comical, and twisted who done its you can’t put it down until you’ve read the entire book. The ending is great because after your heart has been pounding from living the events in this book, the author ends it by winding you down with what happened after the mystery has been solved. All of his books are super, and the more you read, the more you can’t wait for the next one to be published. Get your copy now!

nursing homes are murder

This was a fun read. It was suspenseful till almost the end with some twists and turns, just a you think you have it figured out. If you want something light hearted, but a mystery, you can’t go wrong reading Befler’s books.

Great!!!

I loved it! I found it most humorous and entertaining. And I enjoy the writers since of humor. The characters have all kinds of different quirks which makes the stories interesting. I plan on reading more from this author and I do hope he continues writing many more stories about the life and adventures of Paul Jacobson and his friends. Carol :)
