Pandemic Reading List 2021 – Book Review – Armed and Outrageous by Madison Johns

I got this free on Kindle.

Book Description From Goodreads:

“Senior sleuth — Grandma Mazur meets Murder She Wrote — cozy mystery.

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.”

I was having a look on my kindle for free books when I came across this cozy mystery. I have to admit that the cover drew me in. I was glad that it did. It was an excellent murder mystery that had some humerous moments in it.

I loved the characters in this book. They weren’t your typical young investigators, but instead retired and with time on their hands. They really made this story with their views based on a life well lived and their general attitude towards life now that they were a certain age. I loved the relationship they had and together they made the story very entertaining and definitely worth 5 stars!

It wasn’t a long story so even if you only have a limited time to read you can enjoy these characters’ adventures!

I really enjoyed this book and would read it again.

Rated 5/5
