Izzy, The Reluctant Spy by Sandra J. Howell features Izzy Franklin, a sixty-nine-year-old YA author, retiree, and widow in this first romantic cozy mystery for WRFP. Izzy's comfy life on her farm with her dog, stray cat and aging horses is disrupted when her friend Merle pressures her to go undercover on an elite senior dating site to flush out the grifter who bilked her out of thousands of dollars and then disappeared. Izzy is way out  of her element, pretending to be a femme fatale, meeting philanderers online, and then in person. Izzy, reluctant from the start, was only in this to help out  Merle and potential future victims of Krappy Karl. She never anticipated real danger or that her friendship with Gus, which could turn into more, would be threatened, but she must see it through to the end. For a funny, suspenseful read with a cast of quirky, enjoyable characters, get it today.
