Your chariot awaits by Lorena McCourtney( Book )

In the course of one week, Andi McConnell turns 60, is downsized from her job, is dumped by her boyfriend, and receives an unexpected and strange inheritance from an eccentric, rich uncle -- a sleek black stretch limousine with bulletproof windows. She knows it's totally impractical, yet the limo has an allure that Andi can't resist. That allure is considerably dampened, though, when a dead body is discovered in the trunk of the limo. Though Andi has never had any interest in being a sleuth, with her own name high on the list of suspects, she knows she'd better do something before the murder is pinned on her. Andi joins forces with a nosy but charming former TV private eye in a bumbling -- and often hilarious -- attempt to find the killer
