Sara M. Barton is the author of several fast-paced mystery series, featuring lively characters, lots of action, and enough laughs to keep readers amused.
"Miz Scarlet" (Scarlet Wilson Mystery series) is a teacher-turned-innkeeper who throws herself into danger with a feisty determination to make things right. Her knack for finding trouble and her quick, often sarcastic, retorts often gets her into hot water. Relying on childhood cohorts "Captain Peacock" and "Colonel Grey Poupon" to help her follow the clues, she refuses to quit a case until she knows what really happened. That stubborn streak of hers could just get her killed. It’s a good thing she has the elderly “Googins girls” to look out for her, especially when the old sibling rivalry rears its ugly head, and she and brother Bur go at it like a cat and dog.
Deputy Gabriella Grimm (Gabby Grimm Fairy Tale Mystery series) is the only female member of the eight-person Latimer Falls Sheriff’s Department in rural Vermont, where there are more cows, goats, and chickens than people. The good-hearted, quick-thinking peace officer has her hands full when terrorists, organized criminals, and other bad guys wreak havoc with the peaceful village, but luckily she can count on some unexpected help from the handsome military man, Sam Hogan, and some good friends on the Vermont State Police SWAT team.
FBI Special Agent Henry Hartman (Off-the-Books Mystery series) is not your typical fed. He's an expert undercover man. His wife, Sydney Stansfield, an artist and interior decorator, often winds up as his bewildered sidekick, dragged into crises that result from his often dangerous investigations. Lucky for them they can call on the hilarious and creative Hartman Ladies -- Henry's adopted grandmother, great-aunt, mother, and aunt -- for backup.
Sara M. Barton is also known as The Practical Caregiver, offering helpful tips, information, and education for families providing care to a loved one on The Practical Caregiver Guides website and her Practical Caregiver blogs. She is the author of "The Practical Caregiver's Essential Guide: How to Help Someone You Love" and a short, free guide for caregivers providing end-of-life care called "The Practical Caregiver's Guide to Home Hospice", available at most digital retailers.

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.
