From the USA Today Bestselling Author Madison Johns, comes her second box set,
Agnes Barton In Tawas Box set (Books 4-6) that includes Trouble in Tawas, Treasure in Tawas, and the newly released, Bigfoot in Tawas.

Trouble in Tawas
Agnes Barton has been waiting years for this day. She's always told Sheriff Peterson he would rue the day when his re-election time came around and now -- it's finally here. What will Agnes do? Will she cause conflict or support the other candidate?

When the sheriff's father Hal goes missing, Agnes and Eleanor Mason are on a mission to find him, leading them to the Soaring Eagle Casino. But when they haul him home it's only to find that his companion, Raul Perez, is dead at the bottom of the stairs. When the cops show up it doesn't look good for Hal who is in possession of the dead man's credit card. With Hal now as a suspect, and Sheriff Peterson off the case, the sheriff hires Agnes and Eleanor to clear his father's name.

Will Agnes be able to clear Hal's name in time to save Peterson from failure at the polls or is this case too bizarre as a tenant claims aliens are involved?

Treasure in Tawas
The last thing Agnes Barton expected was to be slapped in cuffs alongside her best friend, and fellow-sleuthing buddy, Eleanor Mason. All they had wanted to do was to verify if a painting at the Butler Mansion had indeed been stolen. How were they to know that they had tripped off a silent alarm--or that Agnes' nemesis Mildred Winfree's body would be discovered when the cops showed up? It didn't help that they had entered the mansion illegally--using a key Agnes had pilfered from her daughter Martha who was working as a real estate agent to sell the old place.

Word has it that a treasure map was hidden in the back of a painting at the Butler Mansion, and it was just too juicy a story not to investigate. So here Agnes and Eleanor sat in jail as prime suspects as they were brought in for questioning.

The tabloid, Tall Tales, printed a treasure map in its most recent addition, and soon, East Tawas becomes a point of interest as treasure hunters began tearing up the town looking for treasure. Agnes and Eleanor join in the foray, but she wondered just who was behind this tall tale, and what did it have to do with Mildred's murder?

Bigfoot and Tawas
Agnes and Eleanor embark on their most challenging case to date, finding Bigfoot!

Agnes isn't sure what to say when Billy Matlin, hires her to find Bigfoot, and it doesn't help that Eleanor is hiding in the car. Who is she to say that Bigfoot isn't real, and lord knows she sure could use a paying gig. Armed with a baggie full of brown hair, Agnes and Eleanor march into the sheriff's department, but Sheriff Peterson is reluctant to test the hair. Outright refusing to use county resources for a DNA analysis.

Before long, the Department of Natural Resources and the United States Fish and Game Service also both refuse to test the hair. Suggesting that the only way they would investigate is if an endangered species is involved. Never one to be told no, Agnes does the only thing she thinks will get them to change their minds by planting evidence in the form of a road killed Bald Eagle on Billy's property.

East Tawas is not only overrun with Bigfoot sightings, but it would seem just about everyone they question claims to have seen something mysterious in the woods. When big game hunters roll into town, and with the DNR and U.S. Fish and Game fighting over the brown hair, not to mention a reality show offering up a ten million dollar prize to whoever finds Bigfoot, it's up to Agnes and Eleanor to find out the truth, which is further complicated when Billy Matlin mysteriously disappears.

Although sleep-deprived from working third shift, she knew if she used what she had learned while caring for senior citizens to good use, it would result in something quite unique. The Agnes Barton Senior Sleuths mystery series has forever changed Madison's life, with each of the books making it onto the Amazon bestseller's list for cozy mystery and humor.

Madison is a member of Sisters In Crime. Madison is now able to do what she loves best and work from home as a full-time writer.

Older ladies who become crime investigators have a funny streak in their detective techniques. Feisty and yet warm, the two friends often squabble as they search for clues and annoy the town's police chief.

Johns has written three funny cozy mysteries. Love her characters Agnes and Eleanor and those closest to them. This trilogy turned a rainy Saturday into a fun day.
