#NYWHODIS #NewYearWhoDis @AbigailJaneBlog @monalyisha

This was fun. What do retired folks do to entertain themselves. Well, solving murders sounds like a great way to stay active.

Nicely written, lots of humor and just a touch of melancholy.

AbigailJaneBlog Ahh you've got a lot further down the list than me! I'm glad you liked it though, definitely check out the sequel if you enjoyed 🎉 6d

This was a funny, lovely murder mystery. Four old codgers live in an upscale retirement community and pass the time every Thursday looking through cold case murders. I loved the personalities of the group, the author does a great job. I highly recommend!

This took me a LONG time to get into and by the time I did, quite a lot of the book had gone by. Maybe I was convinced to read something that isn‘t very my taste by the hype but I found the writing quite middle of the road and it‘s tweeness and cuteness felt quite forced. I did like the ending but I don‘t know how far that rescued it.

melissanorr Everyone I know absolutely loved this book and I was very meh about it. Glad to see someone else who isn't raving about it! 2w

This was an easy one….. and the same as @Cinfhen ‘s Feb pick!
Just a wonderful escape, to a cozy world, with sharp, witty characters and lovely friendships being built, plus Murder obviously! Apparently it‘s in development with a production company which is perfect. It‘s Midsommer Murders meets Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, in the best of ways….💕

Here is my pick for January.. I'm guessing this book will feature in a lot of Littens' lists because it's just so good!

The series is chock full of British cultural references and humour. Richard Osman is fab and I'm so pleased for his success 🥰

Perfect for fans of a cosy mystery or for those who've seen every episode of Midsomer Murders and want more! 😄

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I *loved* this book! I don‘t know if I‘ve ever laughed out loud so much while reading a book. Osman created such endearing, realistic, flawed, wonderful characters and a striking mystery with an ending I never saw coming (though I rarely do, so take that for what it‘s worth). The audiobook narrator was absolutely fantastic, so I highly recommend listening to it if you can. I laughed, cried, & gasped, so all in all, a perfect mystery.

Absolutely loved this book and didn‘t realize how much until I was telling my sister how much my mother would enjoy it. All the characters are delightful and interesting. The plot is also great, with lots of twists, but it‘s also funny with tender moments. I shed a few tears. It‘s a well written book and I look forward to his next one and returning to these lovable characters.

This is about a group of elderly amateur detectives who live in a retirement community in Kent, England and run the Thursday Murder Club.. I like the idea and the setting of the novel. It was good to read about how they remain cheerful and spunky despite facing illness and passing away of their friends and partners. But, I think it could have done better on the mystery solving part, as it kind of felt disjointed and all over the place.

This book was great. It takes place in a retirement village in England, and the 4 main characters are residents. Truly, this sounds like a great place to live, with lots of activities and classes available. Elizabeth, Joyce, Ibrahim and Ron have a club called The Thursday Murder Club where they look at cold cases and try to solve them. Suddenly they have a real murder to solve when a local developer is killed. The 4 of them make a great team.

Four residents in a peaceful retirement community meet up for a Thursday Murder Club to discuss unsolved mysteries. A local developer is found dead and the club find themselves in the middle of their first ‘live‘ case. Can they solve the murder before it‘s too late?
An enjoyable read and some quirky characters but it was too slow and too many character perspectives which where unnecessary and confusing.
Was looking forward to enjoying this so much

I‘m kind of regretting listening to this on audio. The narrator isn‘t the greatest in my opinion. The plot is a bit all over the place and there are too many characters to keep track of. I‘ll put this one on hiatus for awhile and maybe then I‘ll forget the narrator‘s voice. 🤞 If you‘re going to read this, then an ebook or physical copy is the way to go.

What a delightful read.

Four pensioners are looking into cold cases when a murder happens in their neighbourhood and they change focus. They also try to help the police in their investigating.

Elizabeth, Joyce, Ron and Ibrahim will stay with me and showers that there‘s more to people than their old age. And the police officers Donna and Chris.

Elderly people who live in a retirement home solving cold cases get sucked into a current murder case and might end up in danger! What isn't to love about this book? I got on a murder mystery/cozy mystery kick this year and I'm glad I picked this one up because I know it is going to be a fun series to continue. One thought is there are to many characters to keep up with, and to many villains to follow. But if you do want to keep up I recommend it!

#225 Interesting take on a classic whodunit. I listened to the audiobook, which I think was a mistake because I didn‘t like the narrator‘s voices, especially her non-native English speaker‘s voices. I thought the author did a great job of getting inside the heads of some of the characters, and the characters themselves seemed believable to me. I think I may reread the book on my kindle someday to see what I may have missed. Enjoyable. #2021. 4.0⭐️

humouress There you are!
I liked this one too; my husband bought it after we saw the author on the Graham Norton show. I have a signed copy sitting on my desk now for his Christmas present (but I might read this one first, too.) (After I've given it to him.) 😉

I loved this book. Sometimes I got confused with the plot, but the characters are fantastic. My favorite might be Elizabeth, whose backstory I really want to hear more about. Looking forward to book two. I discovered a teeny, tiny graveyard and a gigantic oak in a park I walk in relatively frequently. I don‘t know how I missed them. It made me feel better when a friend said he & his wife go there all the time and never saw them either. #audiowalk

Is there a bandwagon for this book? Because I'm jumping on it! I LOVED Joyce. Her journal entries made this book. She added comic relief to a murder mystery.
