When Poppy goes from complacent retiree to penniless Palm Springs widow in a matter of weeks, she decides to use her obsession with true crime shows to start a career as a private eye. But after opening the Desert Flowers Detective Agency with help from her two best friends, Poppy realizes that age brings wisdom, not business-until she convinces her daughter's handsome boyfriend, Matt, to pose as the face of the agency . . .

It's not long before Matt snags a client desperate to retrieve priceless jewelry burglarized from an aging actress at the Palm Leaf Retirement Village. Or before Poppy stumbles upon the bloodied body of the victim's arch rival. . . . In a flash, Poppy's innocent detective gig is upstaged by a dangerous murder investigation, slimy suspects, and unspeakable scandal. As she and her team search to uncover the truth, she must also confront secrets about her late husband's past-even if it means turning her world upside down all over again.

I liked the idea of this book, more than I ended up liking it. It is very character driven, with a long introduction to the characters, which I personally have difficulty with. The mystery didn't really come up as quickly as I would have liked. I did, however, enjoy the fact that these women were a little older as this makes the book stand out.

This was such a good cozy mystery. I sure hope there are more in the series!
