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."

    Not long enough

    This was a 174 page book with about six pages of information. It was pretty well edited and had a great plot. I loved the characters. I would have enjoyed more back ground information and descriptions. I am giving it four stars because the corpse found in the yard, long decomposed, consisting only of a partial skeleton and moved there from another place, was identified immediately. This would not be possible or probable in real life. The murder was easily solved. I wish it had been more of a challenge to figure out. This was a fun book to read otherwise and I was wondering if it was the author's first book. I saw two more books in this series and am going to buy another to see if it is better, not that this is so bad, I just figure if I am going to buy it, I want it to be longer and more complex. As a free book, this one was very good, just short and easy.

    Good

    4 stars
    This is the fourth novel by Sara Barton that I have read this week. While I enjoyed it, I have to say of the four this is my least favorite of them.
    Suzanne Dawkins works with her brother flipping houses. She has found one that she thinks will work and talks her brother into buying it. Even before they close on the house she has someone interested in it.
    Jasper Wintonberry thinks the little house would be perfect for his mom. If she could help pick the options on the remodling even the better.
    Suzanne had a crush on Jasper back in high school. So when he moved back to his hometown she welcomed him back.
    Suzanne runs and one day she saw that Jasper runs too and she hopes to bump into him sometime. When she does is after she had taken a tumble down the hill while out running and she is a mess when Jasper stops and offers her a ride home.
    When Jasper comes to the house the day the remodle starts to make arrangement for his mom to look at the house. Thier is a big commotion in the backyard as a dead body of the previous owner is dug up.
    Thier is a another guy from school who is coming on to Suzanne and she thinks he is a creep who had date raped and blackmailed her friend.
    Thier is a weird guy next store that tells them that she can't be thier because the owner will be back.
    Someone is threatening Suzanne.
    I like the characters and how they interact together. I like that Suzanne knows what she wants and is not afraid to say it. She is also strong enough to figure out how she can protect herself as she calls 911.
    I will read more from Sara in the future. I got this book for free from Smashwords.

    OOOOH REALLY LIKED THIS ONE!

    I watch a lot of house renovation shows on HGTV and couldn't help but think about them while reading this wonderful book!

    Luckily the "Property Brothers" have never come across a dead body on any of their reno jobs ... yet!

    And on "Love It Or List It" Hillary would probably just worry about the chunk of money it would take out of her alloted budget and how she couldn't give the owners the dream basement hockey rink they were counting on!

    I had a LOT of fun reading this one. THANKS
