    Who or what is killing the seniors on Sunshine Boulevard? Jim and Gloria Hart are snowbirds who annually migrate to Florida for warm sunshine, fun, and golf with friends in snow-free winters. However this season, Jim Hart, a volunteer First Responder in his retirement community of Citrus Ridge, is drawn into the investigation of the mysterious deaths. Even in the midst of the unfortunate demise of the residents on Sunshine Boulevard, the Harts try to get together with friends. They don't realize that their friends are getting together for their own kinds of affairs with each other. The neighbors are in a dither over the deaths, but perhaps more intrigued by the gossip about the affairs and why the naked lady was found lying in the geranium bed.J.Q. Rose’s writing is as “bad” as Steven King’s. When I read Salem’s Lot, I couldn’t put it down and I slept with a Bible, a Lutheran prayer book, and a Catholic prayer book for several weeks. I didn’t pick up another of his books for twenty years.I read Sunshine Boulevard in bed and it’s a miracle I did not have nightmares. Somewhere in the horror, I missed the humor. If I were the naked lady in the geranium bush, I’d have been farther-gone—in Canada possibly North of the Arctic Circle still screaming. The fact that I read the whole book, however, is a testament to J.Q. Rose’s writing. She had me from the first truly weird death to the ominous ending. If I ever retire to a warmer climate, it won’t be Florida. I can’t even offer the caveat if you’re phobic about… Florida has plenty to be phobic about—roaches you can saddle and ride, alligators in your back yard, sharks at the beach, and seniors on the road who probably shouldn’t be driving any longer (see the trailer). All I can say is—if you’re prone to nightmares, I suggest you read it earlier in the day.Me, I’m off to Wal-Mart to see if they have any caulk guns. I may live in Illinois, but I’m not taking any chances. Prayer books or pentacles and crystals won’t work against this foe, and I don’t have a blasting rod like Harry Dresden (of Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files) so I can’t just hold it out and yell “Forzare” if I see ‘em coming.

    I won a copy from the author of this book.First things first: I enjoyed the novel and its premise. The descriptions of the retirement community and its characters are fantastic. Even if some of those characters die shortly after being introduced, I still felt enough of a connection to them to touch my emotions. I enjoyed (although "enjoy" may not be the proper word) the depiction of the corpses. I could picture them clearly.(view spoiler)[ I found the love-square humorous. I giggled during the affairs of the couples who were secretly seeing the other's spouse. Tee hee!!! Too bad one particular couple bit the dust. Those deaths were well-down.(hide spoiler)]Despite my connections to many characters, I didn't feel strongly connected to one character in particular (even though one couple seemed to be the focus of the story). I am not exactly sure why. I wish that the plot had focused more on the efforts to find the snakes and/or being active in the story. More often than not, the characters seemed to be cowering in their homes. There were people hunting down the snakes with dogs; the male MC was not one of them (if I recall correctly -- I am writing this review from memory). (view spoiler)[ However, he performed splendidly in the scene in the shed/garage, bashing snakes with a shovel. I was rooting for him there!(hide spoiler)]Still, I liked it, and I look forward to seeing more from this author. If you like light suspense with tickles of goosebumps, I'd recommend reading it.

    Baby Boomers are coming into their own as Snowbirds. J.Q. Rose brings them into the realm of Crafty, Amateur Detectives with LOTS of time on their hands to devote to this new passion...solving murders.What do they have in their arsenal to qualify them? They've been around, they're intelligent, they have wit, and have far more stamina than generation X gives them credit for.SUNSHINE BOULEVARD is a delightful murder mystery extravaganza taking place in Florida during the cold days of Northern Winters, when Snowbirds flock like geese to the warmer climes of Sunny Florida.Thrillingly funny, this is entertaining and a lighthearted romp with just the right amount of "danger".SUNSHINE BOULEVARD 4 1/2 stars I can easily boost up to five because it IS that good and that entertaining, so much so I really can't wait to read the next Jim and Gloria escapade.

    There's much to like about Sunshine Boulevard. I especially get a kick out of it since I happen to live in a 55+ community, so I can relate. I also know people who live in Florida and wonder about their sanity.But there is a little bit of a muddle about the method of death of the senior citizens which I can't get around. I don't want to include a spoiler, so I'll just have to say I did not find it believable. I think there was more that J.Q. Rose could have done to make it more complete.On the whole, however, the writing is good and the story moves with a good pace (much faster than the seniors could). It's a fun and fast read. So I can only award 3 stars, which is still "I Liked It." I just couldn't work my enthusiasm up to 4 stars or more.

    I don't read a lot of horror, but I won a copy of this book from the author during a Halloween blog hop, and I decided to give it a chance. I'm really glad I did, because I enjoyed it. There was mystery, some humor, and some creepiness. I can't say what kind of creepiness lest I spoil the mystery, but I really had fun reading this one.

    This fast, fun read follows snowbirds Gloria and Jim as they worry over the mysterious deaths of several neighbors. With lots of humor and quirky characters galore, I found this book very entertaining. And though I dream of someday being a snowbird myself, this book is just creepy enough to give me second thoughts!
