Six years after her husband’s death, BJ Fradkin has a successful career, a nice house, and what she considers a pleasant life . . . until her younger sister, Iris, 55, moves in with her. The recent widow of a philanderer, Iris is sweet, helpful, surgically enhanced . . . and so ditzy that BJ fears she’ll never move out without a new man to take care of her. But when the Over 50’s Singles Night BJ forms to find Iris a new mate draws only elderly women and one gay man, BJ sees it’s time to regroup.

From the reviews:

“In this charming, wry look at sisterhood . . . the love, misunderstandings, anger and complexity of sister relationships are brought out. . . . Well-written, humorous and emotional.” Romantic
Times Book Club Magazine

“Ellyn Bache has written funny bits before [but] she’s never tried a full-length comedy — and the result, Over 50’s Singles Night, suggests she should have . . .  Three-Stooges-style slapstick is out, although one hilarious moment involves one poor old dear coughing up her dentures along with half-chewed chicken fajita. . . Pleasant, undemanding entertainment [and Bache’s] sharp eye for character quirks keeps the story from becoming trite.” Wilmington (NC) Star-News
