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."

This review is from: Little Red Riding Hood and the Secret Cookie Recipe: A Gabby Grimm Fairy Tale Mystery #3 (Kindle Edition)
I did not realize this was a series and now I want to read them all. The book never took on that series feel I never had to wonder where this came form or that was going. Even the ending was great no true moments of wonder I felt like this book took on a great challenge to get me to read a crime book but it was awesome. There is plenty of thriller and hold your breath moments and even made me daydream the scenes in my head as I read and that not an easy job. Truly loved this book would recommend to anyone over 12 only due to minor graphic scenes of violence which are less violent than most kids see on TV. given copy for honest review. Honestly I truly loved it.

As someone who hasn't read her first 2 Gabby Grimm novels, I was pleasantly surprised that there was still some information in this one that really helped it move along from the others. It was funny, action packed, had great character development and just an overall great read. You really felt as if you were part of the book!

Sara Barton does not disappoint here, again. Lots of action with humor and a touch of drama thrown in for good measure. If you enjoyed the prior two books, this is a must read.

Little Red Riding Hood and the Secret Cookie Recipe: A Gabby Grimm Fairy Tale Mystery #3 by Sara Barton

Well late last night I got a suprize email with the link to the new Gabby Grimm Fairy tale Little Red Riding. So first thing this morning I started it. I wish I could say I could not put it down till finshed, But I ended up spending the day at doctors and hospital. I took it with me and read every chance I had. Finally I was home and could finsh it. I really enjoyed it.

I like Gabby she is smart,fast thinking,cares for others. She is loyal friend. A lot of the same characters from the previous two books are back plus a lot of new ones. Sam her special forces boyfriend is back and is made a deputy for short time.
The characters are likeable and you want to have everything turnout okay.

The Sheriff's daughter has been kidnapped. As they race to get her back safely before they can get even with the Sheriff. The Sheriff takes his family when daughter is safe and disappears from mob.

Gabby quickly realizes that their are some corrupted cops,FBI Agents and a whole bunch could be envolved. So she tries to reach higher in different offices and get around the bad cops. She figures how to play some of the bad guys while trying to figure out how to keep the Sheriff's family safe to come back into town. She is working with FBI,State cops,her own department,Sam special deputy.

It is full of action,suspense,gunfights,bad cops,good cops and bad guys. It is also a clean read. Good drama and some romance thrown into it also. So if you like mystery,police detective you will like Little Red Riding Hood & the Secret cookie Recipe.

I also liked the acknowledgments. First time to have my name in one thanks. It helped keep me from worring more while waiting in the doctors and hospital to have a book I was enjoying.

I have enjoyed reading Sara Barton mysteries and will continue to read them.
