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."

The Miz Scarlet books are so fun! I've read a couple now. They're really enjoyable. A great light read.

I have enjoyed all three Miz Scarlet books I have read. Lots of things happen around Miz Scarlet.
There is a lot of mystery, action, romance, witty banter, humor and fun characters abound. Also is a clean read.
A few of the characters have nicknames from their youth taken from the game clue which adds to the fun light side of them. Miz Scarlet and her brother still argue and bigger like they did growing up.
Miz Scarlet runs a different motel or bed & breakfast. A lot of her guests come while they are sick or have no where else to stay.
It is Christmas time and Larry asks for a favor that asks if her father can stay their for Christmas. Both of her parents want to come and they are divorced and fight a lot. Soon the inn is full with good and bad guys.
This is a short 111 pages novella that you can buy alone or part of Killer Christmas by Sara M. Barton that has two other good mysteries in it. Plus it will be FREE ON AMAZON 12/19, 12/20.
I actually got both for free on different places.
I enjoy reading Sara M. Barton's mysteries.
