Can Be Murder
Carol Andrews is planning her grandson CJ's first Christmas down to the
last detail. What she didn't plan for is a furnace fiasco, the unexpected appearance of CJ's Other Grandmother, Margo, and
her new boyfriend, a family feud, a stolen credit card, and murder. When Margo's boyfriend becomes the police's chief suspect,
Carol is forced to add crime-solving to her holiday to-do list before Santa can come down the chimney.
In Any Election Year, Politics Can Be Murder
Carol eagerly signs on to manage the election campaign of a new female political candidate. But when the always nosy
Carol goes beyond her job description and starts asking too many questions, she discovers that politics can be a murky world
of hidden secrets, greed, and murder. Available on Amazon from Suspense Publishing.

a murder (and then vanishes), Carol must step in and crack the case before the police get involved. Also available on Amazon from Suspense Publishing, In-Laws Can Be Murder.

a little too much to love about Carol Andrews these days, thanks to the extra calories she consumed during her second honeymoon
in Florida with her husband, Jim. Determined to shed the extra pounds before the birth of her first grandchild, Carol
joins Tummy Trimmers, a new, holistic approach to fighting—and winning—the battle of the bulge. But her weight
loss regimen is interrupted by another group member, who collapses on Carol, right after completing a meditation exercise
to help lose weight, and then dies. When the evidence points to murder, the always curious Carol can’t resist adding
sleuthing to her personal weight loss routine.

"There were no dead bodies at the Lakewood Ranch Country Club ... when
Susan Santangelo captivated her large audience of over 200 with a mixture of humor, pathos and intrigue as she presented insights
about her entertaining and innovative series - Baby Boomer Mysteries.
"In her inimitable and charming style, Susan
revealed that when her husband of over 40 years retired, the events that followed served as her inspiration for the first
Baby Boomer Mystery entitled, Retirement can Be Murder. The story focuses on the emotional impact of retirement on a typical
Baby Boomer couple, Carol and Jim Andrews."
Thank you for the kind words

Thanks for the continuing support for the Baby Boomer Mystery series including: "There are cozies for every topic,
and that includes baby boomers. Award-winning author Susan Santangelo is the master at taking a lighthearted look at the issues
facing the seventy-six million members of the fastest growing market segment in the country: the baby boomers."
--Stacy Mantle, The Big Thrill, online publication of International
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."
A little about Susan: I've been a feature
writer, drama critic, and editor for daily and weekly newspapers and magazines in the New York metropolitan area, including
a stint at Cosmopolitan magazine. I'm a member of Sisters in Crime, International Thriller
Writers, and the Cape Cod Writers Center, and divide my time between Florida and Cape Cod, MA. I share my life with husband
Joe and English cocker spaniels, Boomer and Lilly.
