About Sara M. Barton

Sara M. Barton is the author of several fast-paced mystery and thriller series featuring lively characters, including the feisty, funny innkeeper and amateur sleuth, "Miz Scarlet"; the gutsy, good-hearted Deputy Gabby Grimm; artist/decorator Sydney Stansfield (wife of FBI gent Henry Hartman), and the former "Marigold Flowers", event planner, whose life in the WitSec program was anything but ordinary.

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."

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.
