With her Baby Boomer Mystery series,
author Susan Santangelo documents her undeniable storytelling talents. "Class Reunions Can Be Murder: Every Wife Has
A Story" is an especially well crafted and entertaining mystery that plays fair with the reader every step of the way.
For those of whom this would be their first encounter with this outstanding series, they are highly recommended to seek out
the three previous titles: "Retirement Can Be Murder: Every Wife Has a Story," Moving Can Be Murder: Every Wife
Has A Story," and Marriage Can Be Murder: Every Wife Has A Story."

About the new Class Reunions Can Be Murder,
Reader Favorite published this review: "The clear but deft writing style and the witty dialogue make the reading fun
from start to finish. Class Reunions Can Be Murder is a cozy mystery but the clever plot with the unexpected twists is on
par with the much heavier mystery novels that I have read before. I absolutely love the hilarious yet astute sayings at the
start of each chapter....Overall, a superb
novel. Author Susan Santangelo is a true gem in the mystery and baby boomer genre."

Thanks to the many loyal readers.
Since January 1, 2006, Baby Boomers like me are turning
60 at the rate of 8,000 a day, and coming face to face with how to define, and re-define, our “golden” years.
Being part of this national phenomenon inspired me to write this mystery series.The first book, Retirement Can
Be Murder, tackles the potential emotional impact of retirement on a typical Baby Boomer couple, Jim and Carol
Carol dreads Jim's impending
retirement more than a root canal without Novocain. She can't imagine anything worse than an at-home husband with time on
his hands and nothing to fill it -- except interfering the day-to-day activities of their houshold and driver her crazy. Until
her plans to stall Jim's retirement result in her husband being suspected of murdering his retirement coach.
Now that book one, two, three and four in the series are out, I'm doing lots of author talks and signings.
The stories other wives have shared with me about their husbands' retirement have been both funny and poignant. I'm thrilled
to say that Retirement Can Be Murder has gotten terrific reviews. Midwest Book Review
calls it "an entertaining and lighthearted read from a real pro. The Baby Boomer mysteries promise to be as germane as
'Murder She Wrote.' It would make a great television series." And Booklist says, "We'll look forward
to more Boomer mysteries in the years to come....Pure fun."
