A hilarious new mystery series from USA TODAY Bestselling Author Harper Lin!

Barbara Gold, a retired CIA agent, is bored out of her skull in Cheerville, a sleepy town in New England—until a man is poisoned during a book club meeting for seniors. Everyone thinks Lucien had a heart attack, but from his symptoms, Barbara knows someone has slipped poisoned into his cake or drink. Even though she is no longer under cover, Barbara feels as if she's only playing the part of a sweet grandmother, but this may just be her most useful cover yet.

The clock ticks as she investigates who in the Cheerville Active Readers' Society would want Lucien dead. It's only a matter of time before his death is declared murder and the police start hounding everyone. 

Suddenly Barbara's CIA training is useful again, and Cheerville is starting to seem not so dull after all…

Read the action-packed first book (30,000 words) in the Secret Agent Granny mystery series.

I liked that the main character isn't a 20 something prodigy who inherited a house, business or other property from a dead relative and becomes super sleuth. This character is an older person with lots of experience and training which is believable. It's quick, fun story, with a few laughs along the way. Highly recommended.

Entertaining, light with humour, and realistic portrayal of geriatrics and youth, while not belittling murder. Great to have a senior doing detecting. Not as serious as Miss Marple or exciting as Mrs. Pollifax mysteries ( amateur CIA agent), but a nice, quick read.

I really love the Granny Gun series. Maybe because I understand the rigors and problems associated with retirement. Finding new hobbies, friends, and dealing with interaction with your teenage grandchildren. And don't talk about joint pain. But "Granny" is making progress and a murder is icing on the cake for this still experienced ex-agent. Laughter is on every other page. And like any great mystery, you won't know who done it until the end.

I'm a granny, & found this book realistic in the way the over-60-year-olds are portrayed - - but it's also fast-enough-paced (except for the main characters' "jumping", "leaping", etc ;-) ;-)) to be exciting! :-))

6/19 interesting. Different. The author can't get away from potty talk! Crude in places. No need for either. If the book weren't so full of grammatical errors, I would have enjoyed it more.

This very short book could easily be scrunched into about 30 pages if you cut all the reminising about the near legend she thinks sshe once was.
