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."

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.

As the series continues, 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."
