About this ebook

A morose parrot with a reputation for biting perches in a small cage  in the lobby of Brookside Retirement Community. For Josephine, a reluctant resident, he sums up the place which friend and handwriting expert, Lill, has dubbed Babbling Brook (in honor of the missing waterway and the more exasperating residents). However, Brookside turns out to be more interesting than Josephine expected, as it becomes the setting for art theft, other dodgy dealings, and…naked poker. Investigating the unusual events, Josephine and Lill befriend Devi Subramanian, a young woman Josephine tries to prevent from making the same mistakes she has made.

So loved this book! I know many who have fretted about going to senior homes....this definitely puts a different, better slant on it...story itself was soon good!

The device of having each separate chapter told by a different protagonist actually worked. Each character was well fleshed out and I grew to care for them and understand them. Some were villians but not cardboard ones. Even their bizzare actions came to make sense. This is much better novel than the typical cozy. It was was very good novel more concerned with telling a good story than plotting out a mystery. I love forward to reading more about Josephine, Devi, Mac, and Lillian.

Let me state categorically, I DO NOT LIKE READING MYSTERIES. But the title snagged me (Naked Poker?), the characters captivated (I know these people) and Josephine, Lil, Devi and Mac kept me turning the pages) and I couldn't help trying to solve the plot (surely the sneaky manager was involved!) The resolution was logical, believable, and delight to uncover. You wouldn't have to twist my arm to read another Ann Werner offering of ANY genre. A true master of the language!
