    With the covered bridge festival under way Charlotte has talked Francine and her husband into a photo shoot to help knock an item off Charlotte’s bucket list However when they are almost done they hear gunshots and see a man run out of a field slide down under the bridge and collapse The man turns out to be Francine’s cousin and she begins poking around to find out what happened Can she figure it out?I loved the first book in this series and I was anxious to revisit the characters It’s nice to have a group of 60 something women who are still full of life and pursuing their dreams The murder while good does take an interesting twist near the end and I’m very curious to see just how this factors in to later books in the series If you are looking for a fun light cozy that isn’t in the normal mold this book is definitely for youNOTE I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest reviewRead my full review at Carstairs Considers

    The ladies from “Murder on the Bucket List” are back with a few “wrinkles” to keep us entertained and amused “Murder Under the Covered Bridge” re creates the satisfying concoction of the first book with its intriguing plot humorous characters and historical settings as the backdrop for Francine Charlotte Joy Alice and Mary Ruth to again cross off new adventures on their bucket list Each grandmotherly member of the Summer Ridge Bridge Club has their own “60 item bucket list” and they all pitch in to help complete each others' lists Their latest bucket list “adventure” has the women completing a sexy pin up calendar And since Francine’s family legend involves a secret romantic tryst from over a century ago at the Roseville Covered Bridge Francine and her husband Jonathon recreate somewhat the tryst for the pin up calendar when their Victorian themed photo shoot is interrupted by rifle shots outside the bridge Francine the sensible member in the five women club is once again found by the police in a semi compromising position and needing to explain to them why she was at the scene of yet another crime The women’s involvement in the investigation and a shortage of fried corn fritter donuts causes mayhem during the Parke County Covered Bridge Festival It is all good fun by the age defying ladies who are making the most of their latter stages of life as they get down to business baking donuts and holding séances in between looking for clues The story easily held my interest given it sets the hunt for the killer against the bucolic nature of a typical Parke County Covered Bridge Festival Many Indiana landmarks are successfully brought to life during the course of the book just as they were in the first book of the series As the mystery deepens we are taken along as Festival goers are introduced to some delicious food and delightful clues some of which literally go up in smoke The ending nicely ties up all the clues and makes me wish there was a post script about a key character I find the ladies never get old because they are young at heart especially when leaning on each other for support I was also pleased with how Jonathon contributed to the action and I want to give him a shout out He is a benevolent good hearted husband who humors his wife and goes along with her friends as he helps fulfill their “bucket list” items recover the victims solve the mystery and pitch in at the Fabulous Desert Booth during the Covered Bridge Festival while still running a part time accounting business All that husband ly support makes me laugh just thinking about it Keep this one close by for the next time you want a fun read

    I loved this book The main characters are a group of 60 year old and over women from Indiana who each made a bucket list In their first episode MURDER ON THE BUCKET LIST a foray into skinny dipping gave them national recognition due to coverage by Good Morning America Now they’re back knocking off another wish or two MURDER UNDER THE COVERED BRIDGE starts with a sexy calendar shoot involving a carriage and a covered bridge And this activity turns into a shooting with guns not the camera a life threatening accident and multiple arsons The ladies are smack dab in the middle of it allI loved the descriptions of the countryside and the well developed characterizations which gave these uirky ladies a realistic and believable side The pacing is fast and freuently hilarious while the plot is uniue and not at all obvious The well written prose kept me reading way past my bedtimeI received an e copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review
