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."

Having a Killer Time, Wish You Were Here! A Practical Caregiver Caper #6 by Sara M. Barton
This is a lot of short stories dealing with people who are care givers to others around them. They get across the plot,characters and message all come across great.
A couple of these stories hit me personally hard. One had a mother in a wheel chair after a stroke and working hard to relearn things. In my case it was the opposite.
I was the one at 24 had the stroke and was in the hospital for two months. Then months of physical therapy. My mom was the care taker. Still have problems from it to this day. Thats why I can read a lot especially when I get down or in a lot of pain I can escape. Luckily no dead bodies around or attempted murders.
Some of these stories have a big twist in them and some have little twists. Some have some romance and others are using romance for other reasons.
I don't want to give away much. Just have time to read short stories or if you have the time to read them all at once you won't be disapointed in the mystery,action and the endings.
I was given this ebook by the author in the hopes I would give it a honest review.
