Can you tell me the name of these books?

I was reading these books about an older woman. It starts out with her being bored with retirement. She is a widow. With at least 2 grown children. She decides to apply to either the FBI or the CIA can't remember which and SHE GETS ACCEPTED MOSTLY because of a case of mistaken identity. The rest of the book series is her going on assignments for whichever organization it was. BY THE BY I HIGHLY RECOMMEND if you haven't read it already. I want to know the name of the books and/or the author PLEASE and THANK YOU
