Author: Patricia Rockwell
Genre: Cosy Mystery
The Blurb: The Happy Haven Assisted Living Facility is a home for senior citizens–not newborn babies. So, when one of the kitchen workers asks ninety-year-old resident Essie Cobb to secretly care for his missing co-worker’s infant, she is flabbergasted, but determined. Along with her intrepid friends–Marjorie, Opal, and Fay–amateur sleuth Essie sets out to hide and protect the baby–and find his missing mother. Unfortunately, she isn’t expecting to deal with exterminators, suspicious neighbours, virus outbreaks, and the snowstorm of the century.
My Thoughts: PAPOOSED is the second in the Essie Cobb Senior Sleuth series. I haven’t read the first in the series yet, but will go back and make amends for this. PAPOOSED was a perfect Saturday afternoon read – a light fluffy mystery, a person in jeopardy, a child to be protected from harm; relaxing, humorous and you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to understand what is going on. I have older friends and relatives who live in aged care, and believe me they would get up to the mischief this lot did. If you were introduced to my friends you would think butter wouldn’t melt in their mouths but if you allowed yourself to believe that you would be very wrong!!!
Rating: B – Really Good Read
