Before the Daisies Grow (Capers of Glamour Grans) by Micki Street

Toss the bloomers, get a bikini wax and slip into a thong: life begins at sixty for three gallivanting grannies!
When Dotty and her two friends accept an invitation to a holiday on a west African island, they have no idea their host Lucas is a drug lord using them as cover. Nor does Dotty have any idea that her new acquaintance, the delicious Major Ramsay Milestone, has an ulterior motive, too–he’s there on a covert mission to break up Lucas’s operation.
Covert or not, Dotty finds out and quickly gets her wires crossed. Even though the Major gives her chronic vapours, she’s convinced he’s the bad guy.
