Grumpy Old Wizards book description:
Fifty years after the Disaster, the world is vastly different from days of old. Wizardry is the norm and magical talent is categorized. Josephine O'Connor, an eighty-four-year-old with a penchant for off-beat antics, is a category six, which means she possesses magical powers as rare as they are unsettling and a talent for psychometry that is so strong and acute that she can read the psychic impressions in a room without touching anything.
With her unique physiology, she’s over eighty years of age and still gets carded at R-rated movies. Most of the time it’s flattering but it can sometimes be a nuisance. For the most part, Josephine spends her days like any other retirement community member. She plays cards with friends, attends get-togethers, and occasionally visits the beach until she is called upon by the police to investigate a crime scene left behind by a suspect with powers equal to her own.
Now the race is on. Can an out-of-practice wizard marshal her abilities and catch a menace before he becomes so powerful even she can’t stop him?

I want to start off by what I really liked about Grumpy Old Wizards. The best thing for me was the MAGIC! The main reason I wanted to read this book was because it had to do with wizards. Grumpy Old Wizards was entertaining enough to keep me reading even though I didn't feel very connected to the characters. The mystery in the case Josephine was helping to solve was so easy to figure out though. Did I feel I wasted my time reading this book? No, I actually enjoyed it and would like to read the rest of the series. I give this book 4 stars.
