Murder She Typed (Izzy Greene Cozy Mystery) (Senior Snoops Cozy Mystery Book 1) by Sylvia Selfman

Izzy Greene, a widow of a certain age, joins a writing group in an attempt to actually finish one of her stories.She gets more than she bargained for, however, when her nemesis, sexy blonde bombshell, Sondra Sockerman disappears under suspicious circumstances. Izzy soon realizes she has a natural detecting ability when she and her friend, Flo, try to find the killer...who is now after them.  (summary via Amazon)

Who says that once you reach a certain age, your life is over. Whoever said that old people should be "put out to pasture" sure didn't meet Izzy Greene.  Izzy still has a lot of spunk in her for an "old lady" and the men still seem to think so also.  

It all starts when Sondra Sockerman attends one of Izzy's writing group meetings.  Not only is she a total knockout and attracts the attention of all the men in the group but she gets under Izzy'z skin and she cannot get her off her mind.

While Izzy is waiting for her best friend, Flo, so they can again try to keep with their exercising regimen, Sondra "strolls" past her up the hiking trail.  Izzy can't wait for Flo any more, she has to prove to herself that she is just as good as Sondra.  Unfortunately Izzy cannot keep up with Sondra and has to stop and rest.  While resting another hiker passes her but shortly barrels past Izzy just after screams are heard !! Were they Sondra's ? Did the other hiker hurt or kill her ? 

When Sondra doesn't return to the writng class, and Izzy tells the police what happened and they don't do anything, she starts investigating on her own.  

This is a book that you not only will thoroughly enjoy but it will keep your interested from the beginning until the shockingly twisted end.  Sylvia Selfman is an amazing author and I personally intend to continue reading her books.
