Sunset Walk

no more lawn to mow, pool to maintain, leaves to rake, or snow to shovel.

Sunset Walk, a new novel by Susan Saunders, has been released by RoseDog Books.

Sandy and Ruth Child recently moved to Sunset Walk with the promise of “no more lawn to mow, pool to maintain, leaves to rake, or snow to shovel.” They settle into the community parties, the restaurants, the canasta, and mahjong games with some exercise for good measure. Then one morning, Ruth and the other ladies in her walking group are eyewitnesses to a strange male runaway from one of the condos in their “secure” gated complex. The ladies soon find out Arlene Weinstein was murdered and her husband, Dr. Lenny Weinstein, was arrested and charged with her murder. As Ruth becomes more and more involved in the murder investigation, her relationship with her friends undergoes some changes, as do the relationships with her husband and the accused doctor.

Susan Saunders currently lives in an adult community in Somerset, New Jersey, with her husband of thirty-two years, Dick. Always a Jersey girl, Susan grew up in the Weequahic section of Newark as part of a large family. A graduate of Woodbridge High School, she attended Rutgers University. Her professional career spanned teaching theater arts to directing a medical technology school. Her greatest pleasure in the world is spending time with her incredible grandson, Benjamin, who makes her smile every single day.

Sunset Walk is Susan’s first attempt at writing a novel. Her inspiration was the wonderful and glorious experience of living in a community just like the one in the book.

Sunset Walk is a 186-page paperback with a retail price of $18.00. The ISBN is 978-1-4349-9716-6. It was published by RoseDog Books of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. For more information or to request a review copy, please visit our virtual pressroom at or our online bookstore at
