    Delicious read Doesn t get much wittier than this series Example Mildred is under the weather and she is feeling like the third chapter of a dreadful book Perhaps it s because the protagonist is 71, or the mystery is set in casino and well researched This author knows seniors and has written a book not just for those of us north of 60, but for anyone who loves a good mystery I read it in one day and promptly put the other two on my Kindle for today and tomorrow It is a laugh out loud fu Delicious read Doesn t get much wittier than this series Example Mildred is under the weather and she is feeling like the third chapter of a dreadful book Perhaps it s because the protagonist is 71, or the mystery is set in casino and well researched This author knows seniors and has written a book not just for those of us north of 60, but for anyone who loves a good mystery I read it in one day and promptly put the other two on my Kindle for today and tomorrow It is a laugh out loud funny, wipe tears of laughter from your eyes, escape book

    This is the second book I ve read by this author As with the first, her main character is a rather feisty woman of advanced years and I found myself chucklingthan once at Mildred s obsession with having her meals on time.Having to find employment after the death of her husband leaves her in unexpected financial hardship, Mildred winds up in the unlikely role of undercover security at the local casino Quickly finding her feet, she soon relishes the excitement and independence her new posi This is the second book I ve read by this author As with the first, her main character is a rather feisty woman of advanced years and I found myself chucklingthan once at Mildred s obsession with having her meals on time.Having to find employment after the death of her husband leaves her in unexpected financial hardship, Mildred winds up in the unlikely role of undercover security at the local casino Quickly finding her feet, she soon relishes the excitement and independence her new position brings, enjoying the camaraderie of her new colleagues However, danger is lurking just around the corner for Mildred and from then on it s all breakneck action and tension.I really enjoyed this book, mostly for the character of Mildred who is endearing and very relatable, but also for the casino itself Appearing almost like a mini world of its own, it was fascinating to read all the behind the scenes info.The author writes well, with crisp attention to detail that breathes life into all her characters She is economical with her words and doesn t waste time with lavish descriptions that would slow the plot down.There was so much I liked about this book and only one small niggle which did bother me somewhat The author has a habit of changing the point of view from first to third person mid paragraph, and that did make it a bit confusing However, this is just a personal observation, and in no way detracts from the solid five stars I am awarding it I will definitely be reading someMildred in the future

    I am so happy to have met Mildred This feisty woman, and author Toni Kief, kept me laughing and on the edge of my seat for the entire book Filled with nostalgia, warmth, and apple turnovers, Mildred in Disguise reaches out and pulls you into the story In fact, I don t want to leave So I m starting Mildred Romancing the Odds, immediately.

    Mildred knew that stepping into the casino would bring up memories of her late husband s gambling debts, but at 71 years old, she needs a job The casino is close and hiring Instead of working as a cashier, she is chosen to work undercover Her career as a meter maid has only prepared her for some of what she s in store for with this new job.What a whirlwind I never expected to read a book where the main character was over 70 and still running around getting into trouble It was neat reading a Mildred knew that stepping into the casino would bring up memories of her late husband s gambling debts, but at 71 years old, she needs a job The casino is close and hiring Instead of working as a cashier, she is chosen to work undercover Her career as a meter maid has only prepared her for some of what she s in store for with this new job.What a whirlwind I never expected to read a book where the main character was over 70 and still running around getting into trouble It was neat reading a book with a character you don t normally see as the main character Mildred is a great blend of sarcastic, witty, humorous, and get it done undercover detective Her disguises are hilarious.The story was fully fledged and the mystery was layered Mildred got her share of bruises during her investigations, but also stepped down when the big guys were needed to catch the bad guys.I loved the insights into a large Casino and the life of an older and semi retired lady
