RED IS THE NEW GRAY
MAGGIE SLOAN MYSTERY SERIES, BOOK 2
MAGGIE SLOAN – former librarian, self-trained spy, literal, and brilliant – has the skills of a deadly assassin. Our Gray Lady (like the Gray Man who blends in, except shorter) accepts a two-week assignment in Galveston, Texas, to find a missing spy who trusts only her. Larry, her original police officer protector and “cousin” from her hometown, is her backup.
The Gray Lady is rocking her new red boots as the fill-in cook at a diner, but before the end of her first week, she is shot. The attacks escalate and so does Maggie’s determination to solve the crimes. Note to bad guys: Maggie is irritated, and Larry and Maggie’s men are furious.
Maggie and Larry struggle with the disturbing clues that point to the guilt of everyone they meet. How many more people will die before Maggie uncovers the vicious leader who has escaped detection for so long?

The 2019 I HEART Books Sale was at the Gainesville Downtown Public Library. I met new authors and awesome readers, including the members of a local book club that is considering recommending the books of the DONUT LADY MYSTERY SERIES for their club to read this summer.
Book Club: We had an author who came to speak to us once. Would you be willing to do that?
Me: That would be awesome! I would love to! <Wow! WooHoo!>

SWEET DEAL SEALED is FREE through May 11 on Amazon.
Why another free book? There’s no royalty paid for a free book. However, Amazon does pay the writer for every page read, even if the book is free. It works out to about $0.0004 or so a page. Not a lot of money, right? But sometimes a reader leaves a review on Amazon or Goodreads. PRICELESS!
Would you like to know IN ADVANCE about the next free book or even when the next new book is released? The subscribers to the Judith A. Barrett monthly eNewsletter are always the first to hear the news before anyone else!
