Parnell Hall recommends

Getting Old Is Murder (2005)
(Gladdy Gold, book 1)
Rita Lakin
"If getting old is this much fun, maybe I won't mind! Miss Marple, move over! Gladdy's Gladiators are a hoot! Rita Lakin's witty romp through a Florida retirement community is just the thing for what ails you!"
thumb
Shop Till You Drop (2003)
(Dead-End Job, book 1)
Elaine Viets
"Fresh, funny, and fiendishly constructed, SHOP TILL YOU DROP gleefully skewers cosmetic surgery, ultra exclusive clothing boutiques, cheating ex-husbands, and the Florida dating game, as attractive newcomer Helen Hawthorne takes on the first of her deliciously awful dead-end jobs and finds herself enmeshed in drugs, embezzlement, and murder. A bright start to an exciting new series. This one is hard to beat."
