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.

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.

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! :-))

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.

Granny is bored with life in Cheerville where she settled to be near her son and his family after a career in the CIA. At her book club the host drops over dead. Barbara (Granny) notices his mouth and realizes it is not the heart attack that everyone else believes killed him. So she is off to investigate before the police interfere. I liked Barbara. She is snarky and sarcastic. She is also kick-ass. I loved that she was 70 and still kick-ass and puts in the aches and pains that come with age. She is funny. She and her grandson Martin begin to improve their relationship because of a book (love it!) I look forward to reading the rest of the series. I am hoping that Martin finds out how kick-ass she is.

This is a wonderful new series. Granny is a retired CIA agent now living quietly in a charming New England town and is, quite frankly, bored to tears. And...then an unexpected death happens at the regular book club meeting and Barbara (Granny) feels that something is amiss right from the start. She sets out to solve the mystery and along the way discovers that the death is actually a murder. Barbara is also a Grandmother and is trying to find a way to reach her 13 year old grandson Martin who is into video games. In an amazing way she is able to connect with him. Along the way Barbara adds some sparkle into her boring everyday life. Granny is so relatable to us senior citizens. Hard to get up from the floor, senior moments when you can't remember something (names, places, etc.), slower movements. I loved the suspense of the story and the great twists and turns Granny experiences in determining who killed the victim.
