Overview

The time-honored Red Sox versus Yankees rivalry...bitter, divorced parents who can't stop bickering...a challenging teenage daughter who questions everything her mother tells her....These are the least of overworked homicide investigator Laurencia Rivera's troubles when she's stalked during an important case.

A teenager turns up dead in the woods, brutally murdered, and it looks like it might be politically motivated....the short-handed homicide team can't seem to get a handle on the case...things just keep going wrong....Is someone trying to intimidate Laurencia Rivera and her investigators, to protect the killer and prevent him from being caught?

Better known as Larry, the gutsy, romance-challenged Connecticut state trooper is desperate to avoid World War III when her parents announce they are both coming for the holidays. She thinks that renting a room for her father at the Four Acorns Inn will solve the problem, but it just makes everything worse. -- Larry's mother is offended that her ex-husband, a Boston Red Sox assistant coach, gets all the pampering; she's determined to kick up a fuss. When Mama's unhappy, everyone is going to hear about it!

Sometimes the only thing for a good friend to do at a time like this is to offer respite from a quickly unraveling family life by stepping in and taking charge of the care and feeding of the entire Rivera family. Scarlet Wilson, innkeeper at the Four Acorns Inn and amateur sleuth, is the perfect person for the task. If only she stuck to guest services....

"Miz Scarlet" may not have Larry's professional cop training, but that doesn't stop her from going head to head with a killer bent on revenge! Her boyfriend, Kenny Tolliver, happens to be a public safety expert and he's got some tricks up his sleeve. But it's Larry's former partner, Max, who rallies the troops with an amazing effort to rescue the uncooperative damsel in distress....What will a guy in love do to save the woman he adores? Can love save the day?

Before the Rivera visit to the Four Acorns Inn ends, not only will a killer be sent packing, everyone will learn the shocking reason for the bitter divorce of "The Spitball King" and the "Queen of Clean", and the mystery will finally be solved as to how the granddaughter of a Red Sox assistant coach came to be named after a famous Yankee center fielder. This humor-laced short novella is rated PG -- Mild violence, mild language, mild adult situations.

Meet the Author

Sara M. Barton is the author of several fast-paced mystery and thriller series featuring lively characters, including the feisty, funny innkeeper and amateur sleuth, "Miz Scarlet"; the gutsy, good-hearted Deputy Gabby Grimm; artist/decorator Sydney Stansfield (wife of FBI gent Henry Hartman), and the former "Marigold Flowers", event planner, whose life in the WitSec program was anything but ordinary.

The author's passion for writing fiction comes through each tale. "There is nothing sweeter than sticking characters in the hot seat and making them find their way out of the darkness. I'm fascinated by human behavior and I love to see characters grow as they go through tough times. Life is never fair, but I believe in heroes, those people who don't take no for an answer, who put the greater good ahead of 'me, me, me'. But most of all, I enjoy a good story, seasoned with action, memorable characters, unpredictable behavior, and a monkey wrench big enough to jam up the best laid plans. It's the perfect human storm."

    Far too many unimportant details. The story bogged down...did we need to know she stirred her tea in a clockwise direction?
