Age of the Boomers

2014 is the year when the last of the baby boom generation turns 50. The 76 million boomers born between 1946 and 1964 have changed the world in many ways. To mark the occasion, AARP has launched a year-long celebration called Boomers@50+

With 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.

Midwest Book Review says

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.

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."
