A bit better than the first, but not by much. I do like the main characters though and the way they interact with one another. Especially Pauline and Jagger! There is enough humor to make this a light read, but there is still something missing. The book never really grabbed me the way a lot of the cozies do. It was an improvement over the first one which was a bit lackluster, but still not as good as it could be.

Another great book in the style of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum.
Burnt out nurse Pauline working now as a insurance fraud investigator has gone undercover to help bust a illegal Viagra ring. Distracted by her fantasies about her handsome co-worker Nick...not to mention her dangerously sexy fellow investigator Jagger. However, there's nothing like a few more suspicious deaths to get a girl's mind back on the job at hand.

Not quite as good as Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum; but along the same order and a good mystery to boot.

I liked this light mystery. It is the type of book you can curl up with and read in one sitting.

Pauline's sleuthing leads her to the Senior Citizen's Clinic, where she realizes that her deceased suspect was part of an illegal Viagra ring! Pauline is soon going undercover as a senior hot mama and chasing down leads at the local bingo parlor.
Between fending off some wrinkled "over70" admirers, and helping the sexy investigator Jagger with his own case at the Senior Clinic, Pauline is again faced with a murderer on the loose! Adding to her panic is the reality that her attraction to Jagger is intensifying, despite the fact that the handsome and reliable Nick is courting her. With the help of her hilarious family and friends, Pauline must juggle an undercover nursing gig, two sexy leading men, a senior alterego, and a gaggle of geriatric suspectsall before she becomes the next victim!

Her co-workers and roommates just make the story a perfect read! A very enjoyable series!
