Parnell Hall recommends
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."
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!"
