Those hilarious sleuths Agnes and Eleanor of the Agnes Barton Senior Sleuths Mystery Series have gone paranormal in the first three books of their paranormal mystery series, all boxed up for your reading enjoyment. Included: Haunted Hijinks, Ghostly Hijinks, and Spooky Hijinks.

Haunted Hijinks

Ever since Agnes' car accident, things have changed drastically for her. When she wakes up in the hospital, not only is her son Stuart there, who she hasn't seen in years, but a ghostly apparition!

Instead of getting ready for the loony bin, Agnes and Eleanor help ready the Butler Mansion for a grand opening as a bed and breakfast on Halloween, except they find the body of Katherine Clark. It's game on, as usual, for Agnes, except she now has a new partner, one who has remained silent and is--well--a ghost.

Agnes now struggles to keep her wits, keeping her ghostly companion a secret from Eleanor, not such an easy feat since Eleanor is sharp as a tack. Not only that, but where has Stuart been all of these years and what is he up to?

Ghostly Hijinks
Driving up Highway 50 through Nevada, said to be the loneliest road in America, sure would make a body nervous. Unless, of course, you're Agnes Barton, who welcomes the challenge and the chance to check out a real ghost town. But before she even arrives in Silver, Nevada, a mystery has unfolded in the form of a lost little girl, Rebecca, who has become separated from her family who are searching for the elusive Leister's gold. The real kicker is that Agnes saw it all in a dream, but when they arrive at the Goldberg Hotel & Saloon, she realizes so many things about her dream are real, like the details of the inside of the hotel. It isn't long before she learns that the hotel is haunted by various spirits from the past, further making for an interesting vacation.

Agnes is determined to find the missing family, insisting that it simply wasn't just a dream as she learns that a family with a young daughter had indeed disappeared in the middle of the night just before they had arrived. Will Agnes and Eleanor find the missing family before they perish from the elements, or will the knife-wielding spirit called "The Cutter," shorten their chances?

Spooky Hijinks

It's December in the neighboring cities of Tawas City and East Tawas, and they have one thing in common--Christmas is drawing nearer. The only problem is that homes are being broken into in alarming numbers, with guns stolen. Even local militia members Curt and Curtis Hill are victims. That is, until Agnes Barton and Eleanor Mason are on the case, launching an investigation even after the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) comes to town, taking an interest in the recent thefts. Agnes's own son, Stuart, who works for the FBI, tells her to back off, but Agnes isn't about to stand down. It's not something she does, even after a threat of arrest.

Life for Agnes and Eleanor is good, they're planning their weddings to their respective fiancés, Andrew and Mr. Wilson, who still refuses to tell anyone his first name. With their hearts set on having their wedding at the lighthouse at the point, Agnes yet again is up to her elbows with ghost sightings, but that's something that she's grown accustomed to since her paranormal gift appeared.

As Agnes tries to figure out who the female ghost at the lighthouse is, she finally acquaints herself with the ghosts that live in the attic of the Butler Mansion. The deeper she gets, the more she learns about not only who they are, but the dark history of the Tawas area.

It gets down to the wire. Will Agnes be able to figure out who is stealing guns in the area, stop the ghosts from causing havoc at the mansion, and actually make their wedding plans before they land in jail or worse?

About the Author

When USA Today Bestseller Madison Johns began writing at the age of forty-four, she never imagined she'd make it onto the USA Today best-selling books list with her first cozy mystery, Armed and Outrageous, as an independent author. Sure, this book is an Amazon bestseller, but USA Today?

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.

When looking for a likely prospect on a computer dating site, we all know that the profiles that claim "I have a good sense of humor," were written by folks who appreciate the help and guidance provided by sit-com laugh tracks. The people who truly possess a sense of humor write funny profiles. So why did I go out on a date with these books? I should have known better. The titles promise hijinks and the descriptive blurb promises "hilarious." Dead giveaway. The so-called "humor" is arch, labored dialogue, cringe-worthy. The characters are none too intelligent, their observations none too acute. The Michigan setting, an area I know from personal experience is beautiful, is poorly described and not used to add flavor or unique atmosphere that supports the plot, or to place the characters in a cultural context. If you like Seanan McGuire, Jodi Taylor, Ben Aaronovitch, Timothy Heald, Sparkle Hayter, then my advice is "Run away! Run away!"

Too many circular conversations and not enough storyline- I decided to archive without finishing the series.

Couldn’t put it down, great story and I liked that it was about seniors and the how they were going forward with the investigations. Like I said, couldn’t put it down.

I loved reading the Agnes Barton Paranormal Mysteries , I am a 68 year old senior citizen and I could swear that Agnes was written about me and my friend, Carol. I can’t wait to get ahold of all of Madison’s amazing books. Thank you, Madison Beverly Winnett
