Life is ripe with good times and plenty of beer when Mrs. Feeley welcomes her new friend, the musical Miss Tinkham, to share her San Diego home and junkyard, Noah{u2019}s Ark. It{u2019}s not long before the gourmet culinarian Mrs. Rasmussen moves in, too, and the three elderly ladies bask in their joie de vivre. But the party is cut short when they discover the property taxes have been pocketed by a swindling lawyer. The three wisecracking women must use their collective smarts to raise the money before they lose their home{u2014}and maybe fit in a trip to Tijuana if they can earn a little extra. With this first book of Mary Lasswell{u2019}s to feature the ?Arkies,? you{u2019}ll be hard pressed to not grin along with the charm of Lasswell{u2019}s characters. Go back to the {u2019}40s in this authentic piece of Americana and see how the story of your new three favorite ladies begins
Let's Go For Broke by Mary Lasswell( )

Times are tough for Mrs. Feeley, Mrs. Rasmussen, and Miss Tinkham. After eighteen years of sharing the home that brought them together, it{u2019}s become too expensive to maintain, and their neighborhood too stripped of character to boot. They set out to find a simpler life with a fixer-upper where they can live off the land, but nothing could be that simple . . . In the sixth and final story to star Mrs. Feeley and company, Mary Lasswell is once again pitch perfect with charm. See how everything works out in this uproarious last hoorah, rich with fun and inspirational kindness!

One on the House by Mary Lasswell( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Flat broke at the end of their stay in New York City, Mrs. Feeley, Mrs. Rasmussen, and Miss Tinkham can only make it as far as New Jersey on their voyage back home. When they stop by a local bar for something to lift their spirits, they find it in disrepair and the owner in none too better shape himself. As desperate as they are to make it back to San Diego, it{u2019}s just not in their nature to leave the poor guy there. And if they{u2019}re going to lend a helping hand, they might as well tidy up, serve a few beers, and see about breathing a little life into the joint{u2014}not that it does any harm to have a place to stay until they can find a way to get to the West Coast. Pull up a stool, crack open a cold one, and crack a smile with the third, uplifting and uproarious title from Mary Lasswell to feature her quick-witted altruists
