Description

Armed and Outrageous is a USA Today Bestseller, October 17, 2013.

Hilarious Senior sleuths — Grandma Mazur meets Murder She Wrote — cozy mystery.

Agnes Barton is not your typical senior citizen living in Tadium, MI, on the shores of Lake Huron. She drives a red hot Mustang, shops at Victoria's Secret, rankles local police officials, and has a knack for sticking her nose where it doesn't belong.

What does a murder that happened forty-three years ago have to do with missing tourist Jennifer Martin? Agnes makes it her personal mission to find out, and she's not letting the fact she's seventy-two get in the way. Butting heads with Sheriff Clem Peterson is something she's accustomed to, but lately Clem seems to be acting even more strange, making Agnes wonder what he may be hiding ala the Martin disappearance.

Agnes’ partner in crime, Eleanor Mason tags along, Watson to her Holmes. Together, they unearth clues. If only Eleanor would behave, as although lovable, she has a knack for getting into trouble by tangling with her rival, Dorothy Alton, or flirting with anyone—male or female—and gossiping! She's incorrigible, but she does carry a Pink Lady revolver in her purse, one that has proved useful at times.

Life for Agnes and Eleanor is shaken up when Agnes' former boss and secret crush comes to Tadium. Before long, the lady sleuths have more on their hands to contend with as goons roll into town and bullets begin to fly.

Adult content.

    Excellent book. It was serious in places and very funny throughout. The only negative thing I read, and usually when I come across curse words, I stop and put the book down. I really don’t know why I kept reading this, but I did, and I sure appreciate the author not using anymore profanity. I think The Pink Ladies will make it in all their adventures.. I look forward to reading more of these books. Excellent book.

    I’m amazed that I never saw that ending coming! This is a book that moves quickly has its moments of senior humor too! And..a little romance along the way. It was fun to read a mystery about an area I’m very familiar with.
  • Thoroughly enjoyed this book!

    This author wrote about things that she knew about and was able to make it interesting and come to life for me. And as an OCD reader, there were only two grammatical errors! This is not the fault of the author it is the fault of the proof readers! I heartily encourage you to take the time and read this story!
  • Nice Story

    Cute, cozy mystery. Not too deep or confusing. A good beach read.

    I got to chapter 8 and gave up. This was a best seller? Really? I'm a copy editor, and I just can't bear to read books with grammar and punctuation errors, poor word choices (words that don't mean what the author seems to think they mean) and things that make no sense. Agnes and her friend go to an ice cream shop and order "the usual." A couple paragraphs later, she estimates the order will set her back about $20. If they order it often enough for the server to know what they want, they must have paid for it quite a few times before, so how could Agnes not know the exact cost already? How can an author craft a detective story when she can't even catch her own mistakes? Maybe the story is decent, but with all the errors tripping me up, I just can't make it to the end to find out.

    After reading this first book, I couldn’t wait to start reading another with these outrageous ladies and their escapades. Timid old ladies they are not. Wonderful!

    Enjoyable read with a delightful heroine and her trusty, if a little crazy, side kick. Good story line, stayed on track, worked in additional characters for color and depth. I loved this book, stayed up way too late several nights reading just one more chapter. I look forward to more from this author.
