Fell into Rita Lakin's cozies purely by mistake and am now addicted! Although only 63, I am no longer afraid of the 70"s since reading these upbeat, hilarious adventures of the "girls" in the condos in Fla. Love them so much that I just purchased two more of her series and cannot wait to read them. Rita Lakin combines humor with the daily problems that senior citizens face everyday...growing older, losing a loved one, sex after 70 and the dependancy on good friends to help you through all of it. Great reads...don't miss out on them.
