Armed and Outrageous

Grandma Mazur meets Murder She Wrote.

My book Armed and Outrageous was published May 1, 2012 on Amazon and Smashwords.


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.

Armed and Outrageous depicts a zany cast of characters that include Andrew Hart, Agnes’ love interest. Jack Winston, resident dirty old man, Rosa Lee Hill, local grower of medicinal marijuana, and Duchess the delightful cat.

I will be giving away a free ebook of Armed and Outrageous, drawn from among comments made on this blog.

I would love to read your book! Sounds like so much fun! I loved Murder She Wrote, she was better then most detectives!

Jessica was always so darn cleaver. My book is fun because I have two characters that are friends, and my main character Agnes tries her best to be so darn serious, but her best friend makes it impossible! Thanks for the comments ladies.
