Overview

A financial Ponzi-style fraud costs the Wilsons everything but the old family manse....Opening the Four Acorns Inn sounds like a good idea, except for one thing -- someone is out to ruin them anyway possible, and that includes murder.

Scarlet Wilson's love life keeps tanking, no matter what she does. It's pretty sad when the elderly ladies at the inn have a better romantic life than the forty-something innkeeper. Is she cursed when it comes to men, or is there something more sinister going on? As the tension builds in this psychological thriller, the wild ride sweeps her closer to a dark, sinister secret that threatens her whole family.

A menacing note left in the garden, an unwelcome stranger claiming possession of her cousin's home, a bloody body left on the snowy summit of White Oak Hill...."Miz Scarlet", the feisty former teacher, finds she's up to her eyeballs in questions and no real answers. Who's in danger and why? What does it have to do with the Jordan family, who disappeared without a trace? When one of "Miz Scarlet's" dogs digs up clothing belonging to the Jordan children, her fears are only heightened.

Enter Kenny Tolliver ("Captain Peacock"), the still-handsome hunk who captured "Miz Scarlet's" heart all those years ago in high school. Widowed, retired as Assistant Director of Public Safety at Princeton University, now working for Mercer Security, "Captain Peacock" has all kind of tricks up his sleeve. Good thing, because a second guest meets a gruesome death just as he arrives to take charge.

Scarlet and Kenny seem to be on the fast track to rekindle their love until they run headlong into "Colonel Grey Poupon", Scarlet's annoying, twice-married brother. Even as Bur Wilson slides into fifty, the old sibling rivalry reignites. As brother and sister vie for Kenny's attention, things spiral out of control. Adding to the confusion, Kenny begins to suspect that his old high school chum is lying. Just how involved was Bur with one of the now-dead guests and what else is he keeping from them? As the distractions pile up, a series of bizarre attacks on the family escalates. Despite Kenny's best efforts, Scarlet is snatched in the middle of the night in a terrifying episode that convinces her she's the next victim. Secrets are buried deep and, like skeletons in the family closet, hidden from view. Is there a killer lurking inside the Four Acorns Inn? Will "Miz Scarlet"," Captain Peacock", and "Colonel Grey Poupon" solve the clues in time?

Meet the Author

Sara M. Barton is the author of several fast-paced mystery and thriller series, featuring lively characters and lots of action. "Miz Scarlet" (Scarlet Wilson Mystery series) is a teacher-turned-innkeeper, who throws herself into danger with a feisty determination to make things right, relying on cohorts like "Captain Peacock" and "Colonel Grey Poupon" to help her solve the clues. Deputy Gabby Grimm (Gabby Grimm Fairy Tale Mystery series) protects the citizens of Latimer Falls, where there are more cows, goats, and chickens than people, and she has her hands full when terrorists, organized criminals, and other bad guys wreak havoc with the peaceful village of Latimer Falls, Vermont. Sydney Stansfield (Off-the-Books Mystery series), an artist and interior decorator, is the sidekick of FBI Special Agent Henry Hartman, and she is often dragged into crises that result from his investigations. Bea Jones, a former bookstore manager, is the beleaguered wife of Benedick, a CIA officer forced into early retirement, and they bicker their way through a myriad of intelligence situations of Shakespearean proportions, even as they run their Vermont bed and breakfast, hosting a variety of spies, operatives, and even a couple of war refugees.

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."
