have changed the world in many ways. To mark the occasion, AARP has launched a year-long celebration called Boomers@50+
a humorous look at life-changing milestones this generation is facing, the Baby Boomer Mysteries show a fictional couple grappling
with retirement, marriage of their grown children, a class reunion as well as moving and downsizing. Stay tuned for another
book in the series to be published later this year.

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."
Since January 1, 2006, Baby Boomers 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 Andrews.
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, four and five 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."
