Baby Bunco (Bunco Biddies Mystery #2) by Julie B. Cosgrove

Who would leave a newborn baby in the bathtub of a condo in Sunset Acres, a retirement community, and why?

And was a young woman slain behind the convenience store across the highway it’s mother?

Janie and the Bunco Biddies want to find out, but soon they discover sleuthing can get a bit dicey.

My Review
This is the first book I’ve read about the Bunco Biddies, but it sure won’t be the last, with a serious subject matter the author did allow for a few chuckles. I could just picture these seasoned citizens and their sleuthing, and they sure seem to get things right.
Almost made me want to live at Sunset Acres, with the friendships these folks have and they seem to be there for one another at all times. The story is fictional, but with some research I did find that Nepal does sell kidneys, how sad, and yet you could find yourself on the other side, desperately needing one. Of course, this is the perfect money making deal for criminals, and not the poor donors, just another reason why we should all become donors.
This was a great subject matter, and unfortunately it seemed so real, and to add the senior snoops was a wonderful idea, and although there are some really tense moments, the book had a great page-turning pace, a great topic for a book.
