Fiammetta's Dream (Book 2 of the Villa Paradiso series) by Ted Atoka

Two widows enlist the help of four college grads and build a state-of-the-art retirement facility. They soon discover that life amid a collection of retirees is not only fun but a daily challenge. In this, the second book of the Villa Paradiso series, the incidents that arise include: a denture disaster, an erotic piece of art, a faulty elevator, a hungry mule, a marching band, a battle with hammers, an act of piracy, a suspected pregnancy, an accident with a bull, and a myriad of smaller calamities. Add a bit of romance and a continuous struggle with an unscrupulous attorney to this mixture, and you're in for a hilarious ride.
