⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2
Thank you, Goodreads FirstReads, for my complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

They’d be a group one would never suspect : three senior 70+ ladies. Daphne, Grace, and Meg barely knew one another. They were merely acquaintances enjoying a post-class snack in a coffee shop.

Instantly, their lives were upended when Nina, a distraught young teen, burst into the shop seeking their help.

Who could have known that planning a murder would serve as a bonding experience?

Overall, it was a good read. I liked the premise, alternating perspectives, and humor. However, it was wordy so it felt long to me.

I wanted to like the book more than I ultimately did. It was a little slow in places, and I felt the whole story was a tad too long. The writing was well done but I could tell this was stretching me slightly outside of the crime novels I usually read and enjoy.

Thanks to NetGalley and all for an ARC copy of this book.
I really enjoyed the writing style and the character development. I liked the relationships developed throughout the story. I just had a hard time with some aspects of the plot development.

I really thought that this book might be really interesting from the blurb on the back. A group of three old ladies who decide to kill someone (for a very good cause). But I had a really hard time getting into it. The ladies were interesting in their own right, had very interesting lives that had not been very happy and dealt in large degree with women's issues. In addition to the young woman, Nina, they were trying to protect from "Toad" the sex trafficker from whom she escaped. And thrown in was her backstory as well, but with so much backstory and secrets from each other it all moved at a glacial pace. I was not eager to pick up the book each time I had to put it down and while I did finish it. It really wasn't that interesting.

I would, however, like to thank #NetGalley and Harpers 360 for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book.
