Pageant Director discovers scandalous acts Move over, desperate widows and divorcees - when it comes to passion, jealousy, and revenge, the folks at the Shady Nook Retirement Village are experts at looking for love in all the wrong places. Charles is smitten with Amber, but Amber is dating Salvatore. Nevertheless she fears that Charles may not be able to resist the charms of the rather buxom Nadine. Then there's Salvatore and Frank and the golf foursome to consider. You see, at Shady Nook, it's not just golf, tennis, and shuffleboard that keep the hearts pounding. When Doris attempts to discover new talent for the community's annual fall pageant, everyone wants to get in the act - if only to engage in a libidinous battle of one-upmanship, much to Doris's horror. In place of the refined musical showcase she traditionally produced, the current pageant takes on an air reminiscent of vaudeville, complete with an amazing dog, a standup comedian and a very unusual Shakespeare reading. Written with wry humor and a trace of satire, this book will keep you smiling with an occasional out-burst of laughter.
