Poor Marigold Flowers, already in the Witness Protection Program, thinks it's her fault Jared Spears is dead. At sixteen, life as Marigold knew it ended with the murders of her grandparents.

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."

    5 stars First I have to say I love the cover, since I have not

    5 stars

    First I have to say I love the cover, since I have not liked some of her covers in past.

    I was given this ebook from Sara but was having trouble with my Nook so I went and bought a copy for my kindle because I have wanted to read it for awhile. All the opinions are all mine.

    Reluctant Witness at 466 pages is a longer book than most of Sara's other books, but I was sorry when I had finished because I wanted to see more of these characters. I could see that this could go on in many directions.

    I really liked Marigold Flowers. She has gone through so much and she did not give up. She cared for those around her. I so wanted to see things work out for her.

    Their were a lot of heroes who was doing their best to protect Marigold and were willing to put their lives on the line. You had U.S. Marshalls, Highway patrolman, FBI Agents and a lot of retired agents.

    I really liked Jeff and wanted to see him a lot more. He makes me wonder at the authors of some of the books I have read. Maybe their description of themselves is off? We get to a little about the book Jeff wrote and I am sure it was all fiction right.
    We also got to read part of a book his mother wrote.

    The suspense was good. Never new what was going on around Marigold. Why were people trying to kidnap her? Who was trying to take out her witness protection marshals.

    I would have a real hard time remembering different names and backgrounds that people in Witness protection need to do.

    I like the different relationships between the characters have. They cared about each other and want to keep the innocent safe.
    I like how they teased each other.

    The setting for the book was all over from New York, FL, CA and HI. They were on the move a lot to keep her safe while they figured out what was going on.

    I like novels of Sara M. Barton and will continue to read her books in the future.

    Totally Captivating

    I absolutely adored this story and the characters. I was so disappointed when it ended, and hope the author plans to continue the characters' story. I highly reccommend this book!
