Blurb: You're never too old to have some fun . . .
The little old lady is back! This time, Martha Andersson and her friends - the League of Pensioners - have left behind their dreary care home in Stockholm and are enjoying the bright lights of Las Vegas.
This is their opportunity for a new lease of life and they plan to make the most of it. But before long, they are up to their old tricks and with ingenious tactics, a pair of false teeth and a wheelchair each, they plot to outwit the security system at one of the casinos.
As their antics become more and more daring, Martha and her friends head back to Sweden full of ideas for more money making schemes. However, they aren't the only ones planning on stealing bucket loads of cash and soon find themselves pitted against a gang of dangerous criminals.
Can the group of elderly friends work together to outsmart the younger robbers and get away with their biggest heist yet? Or will this job be a step too far for The League of Pensioners?
*First of all I would like to thank Natasha, from Pan Macmillan, for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Also for offering a copy of this book to giveaway to my followers.
Review: The Little Old Lady is back, full of new ideas and new challenges for her old friends, the now most-wanted League of Pensioners. If you enjoyed the first book, The Little Old Lady Who Broke All the Rules, you don't want to miss this crazy fun sequel. And if you haven't read it, grab the chance to know all about the League of Pensioners as it can perfectly be read as a stand-alone novel.
In this story, our elderly friends are in Las Vegas, ready to rob a casino, total ocean's eleven style but with some electric wheelchairs and false teeth as help. It's incredible what they get away with just for being an innocent looking group of pensioners. Trouble though seems to be not losing the loot afterwards. It's hilarious how they always manage to lose part of their earnings and subsequently they need to plan new tricks.
This sequel has the the same spark as the first book and it was fun to be among my old friends again. Their antics have got even more clever and the addition of a gang of bikers and a fortune teller as their new neighbours is genius.
