I started 2 different mystery series several years ago, and now I can't remember titles or authors, hoping someone can help!

The first was a 25ish female sleuth who was some kind of an astrologer and wrote a horoscope for a newspaper.  She had a pet lizard or chameleon that she took everywhere.

The other was also a 20-30 y.o. female sleuth, it was set around a t.v. studio in Hollywood.  I believe she worked there, don't remember her job.  Her female boss was the victim and there ended up being a secret room behind someone's office at the studio.

Any help greatly appreciated!

I think I remember reading the first one.  She would make little harnesses and leashes for the lizard out of yarn, and safety pin one end to her shirt.

Too bad I can't remember the name or author!  I think it was a short series too.

I believe the first is "Stella the Stargazer" series by Christine Jorgensen
