Dead Girls Don't Wear Diamonds by Nancy Martin

One of the series that I'm most enjoying this year is The Blackbird Sisters Mysteries by Nancy Martin. She throws in quirky characters, a dubious boyfriend, parents who have left the country to evade the tax man and two sisters who pop up at unexpected moments. I'm only on No. 2 - Dead Girls Don't Wear Diamonds and there are six more currently in the series.

From the cover:
When a high society jewel thief winds up drowned in a pool with a tacky garden gnome tied to her ankles, ex-debutante Nora swings into action to save her old flame Flan Cooper from a murder charge. But then a politically ambitious millionaire with hushed-up secrets, a dotty grande dame with a penchant for polo teams and a cat fancier who keeps a gun with his silver tea set all steer suspicions onto Nora herself. Nora must find the killer on her own - or risk trading her grandmother's couture for an orange jumpsuit.
