Lindy McClean, whose Senior Smart Puzzles published last December has been so well received, announced this month that a second Senior Smart Puzzles book is currently on the market.

"I've received such an enthusiastic response from care givers and Baby Boomers with elderly parents that I have just published Senior Smart Puzzles Book 2," McClean said.

Veronica Spaulding, activity director at Curry Good Samaritan Center, showed appreciation for the availability of a second senior puzzle book.

"I have been using the first book with residents, not just for solving puzzles, but also in stimulating conversation and reminiscences. I think it's fantastic," Spaulding said.

McClean, who is a massage therapist, first recognized a need for something stimulating and entertaining for her older clients in conversations during massage treatment.

She did some research, found nothing appropriate on the market, and decided to fill the niche herself.

McClean noted that the books include picture puzzles, hidden objects, same/different, mazes and more, all appropriate for the aging brain.

McClean has utilized the services of illustrator James Cloutier and Nikki Harris Graphic Design.

"Both books … (are on) my Web site or Amazon.com and phone orders may be placed with BookSurge Publishing, (866) 308-6235," McClean said.

She also noted that high resolution cover images, new sample puzzles, and reviews can be found at http://www.seniorsmartpuzzles.com and she can be reached at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it , or by telephone, (541) 469-0864.

GM has recalled nearly 15 million vehicles worldwide this year for potentially lethal issues with ignition switches. Vehicles involved in the recalls announced Wednesday have been linked to two crashes and three injuries but no deaths, GM said. Most of GM's recalls this year have been for older models, but many of the recalls announced Wednesday are for current-model vehicles, including about 57,000 Chevrolet Impala sedans from the 2014 model year for the loss of power steering.
