The Mah Jongg Mystery Series

Dear Reader,

Welcome to Serendipity Springs and the first five books in the Mah Jongg Mystery series!

Mah jongg can generate killer competition. But murder? The answer is yes when it comes to four retired Central Florida friends, who find themselves solving baffling homicides in between the games they love. Whether you know how to play the game or not, join these intrepid seniors as they take turns leading their own private investigations. It turns out the mental agility they use to strategize each play is the perfect tool for tracking down murderers.

I’ve loved creating Syd, Marianne, Micki and Kat and figuring out what will happen to them next. I hope you’ll get just as involved in their investigations.

Barbara Barrett

Craks in a Marriage
When a fellow mah jongg player’s cheating husband is found dead on a walking trail in the woods, she prevails upon Sydney Bonner, her usual competition, to figure out who the real killer is before she’s arrested.

A member of her playwriting class asks Marianne Putnam to clear his sister of the murder of her catering partner, a hypnotist. She and her three friends search for critical clues in a mesmerizing case while a hurricane threatens Serendipity Springs.

The owner of the supper club where budding songstress Katrina Faulkner is about to appear dies at his table. With most of the sheriff’s deputies considered potential suspects, Kat accompanies her sheriff boyfriend on a hunt for the killer.
