What reviewers are saying
“Connect the Dots by Barbara Barrett is a five-star read that kept me entertained and wanting to know what happens next. I had a feeling about who did it, but I wasn’t sure if I was right. Ms. Barrett’s mystery, characters, and the setting were fabulous. I look forward to reading her next book in the series.”- Baroness’ Book Trove
“Barrett does a remarkable job of keeping the reader guessing as the story unfolds. The use of an older set of characters is quite nice as well for change.”-Books A Plenty Reviews
“It is a great book in which in addition to the mystery to be solved, the protagonist is friendship, it was very fun to read the adventures of Micki and her formidable group of friends.”-LibriAmorMiei
“The girls are a fun group and their significant others and husbands bring some humor to their adventures.”-My Reading Journey
“This is another great book that showcases friendship possibly even more than murder!”-The Wytch’s Book Review
accidents can be murder
In this third book in the Mah Jongg Mysteries series, Micki Demetrius takes the lead. How could a thirty-something man fall to his death from a fourth-floor balcony he knows is defective? That’s the question freelance writer Micki Demetrius is asked to answer by the man’s grieving mother, Clarissa White, who refuses to believe his death was an unfortunate accident. But when the authorities determine it was homicide, Micki is shut out of her
Giving up is easier said than done for Micki. She can’t resist a mystery, and suspicious characters won’t leave Clarissa alone, from the woman claiming a stake in the victim’s life to a cagey character who wants his business. As the threat to Clarissa grows, Micki feels compelled to help her in spite of the danger.
Micki’s three mah jongg pals—Sydney, Marianne and Kat—are drawn into the mystery, but the retirees have their own challenges. Syd and husband Trip do grandparent duty while their daughter deals with marital issues. Marianne “finds herself” by writing a one-act play. And Kat must decide how public to go with her growing friendship with the sheriff. Together, they must connect the dots in a nefarious web of greed, neglect, secrecy and murder.
