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.

    Easy to read, didn’t want to put it down.

    Because it was so short, the details came together too quickly and easily. It was pleasurable reading, but it lacked enough detail. It wasn’t worked out. Reached its conclusion too quickly. I would have loved more involvement in getting to the end. DISAPPOINTED.
  • Loved this character

    Barbara Gold is a fiesta retires CIA agent trying to fit in to a “normal” retirees life. Her life gets unexpected interest when a friend is murdered. Being a senior myself, I can identify with Barbara’s complaints of her body slowing down. Even with impaired vision, slows reaction times, and aches and pains Barbara is able to solve the case without blowing her cover. Good story line with several laughs and grins.

    This is a new series based on a septuagenerian retired CIA agent retired to a village called Cheerville. She gets bored and looked for adventure as an investigator of suspicious deaths. I found it curious and likely premise of we who age with relish but not at all responsibly! I might be one of those people...

    Short, but expected at this price. A fun read at a great price.
