If you think PTA meetings are boring, then you haven’t attended one in Barbara Marr’s neighborhood, where MURDER is on the agenda. Always one to stumble into trouble, Barb learns the hard way that a seemingly innocent yearbook scandal is actually part of a more sinister and deadly plot.
Join soccer mom and movie lover Barbara Marr in this second laugh-out-loud, chaotic mystery, where high-profile crime and suburban living collide in an unexpected fashion.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
If you like mystery novels, especially cozy ones, this is a good choice as the book was highly entertaining. And over the course of it you learn in a few ways that sometimes appearances really are deceiving. I will definitely continue reading about Barbara Marr’s latest adventures.
Funny, interesting and a pleasure to read. This is the first book that I have read from this author. I will definitely read more of her works. In addition to the story line I enjoyed the author’s ability to write a mystery and keep the language clean.
The fact is that Karen Cantwell writes the most sublimely hilarious stories. Implausible as all get out but she makes you believe it while you’re reading because the stories are so fast-paced and rollicking that you get totally caught up.
You have to be in the right frame of mind to appreciate anything, and if you find yourself not appreciating Citizen Insane for what it is, one might argue that it was your own damn fault for not downloading Hemingway instead, and nothing to do with the author at all. Happily recommended, and I enjoyed it very much.
This book was a super fun read. Yes, the story line is a bit of a reach, but it is written so well that it doesn’t matter and in fact the craziness of the plot makes it that more enjoyable. I for one have enough of real life situations and enjoy reading something that can take me away from my ordinary life.

About The Author
I’m so glad and honored that you have visited my author page.
I have been writing plays and short stories for many years, some of which are published in short story collections.
My first novel, TAKE THE MONKEYS AND RUN, is a comedy-mystery, inspired, to some degree by a true monkey sighting in my own neighborhood. Because I love to laugh as well as make other people laugh, I have great fun writing the characters Barbara Marr, her friends and her adversaries. When I set out to write this book, I knew I wanted to write something that readers would say, “Now that was FUN.” I HOPE I have achieved that goal. And if I did, please feel free to drop me a line at and let me know! I love to hear from readers. (especially if they LIKE the book!)
Books in the Barbara Marr series are: TAKE THE MONKEYS AND RUN (#1), CITIZEN INSANE (#2), AND SILENCED BY THE YAMS (#3), and SATURDAY NIGHT CLEAVER (#4). The fifth book, DEAD MAN STALKING, will be released September of 2014. You can also enjoy a Barbara Marr short story collection, THE CHRONICLES OF MARR-NIA, as well two holiday short stories, IT’S A DUNDER-BULL WIFE and BJORN!ON THE FOURTH OF JULY. All are available on Amazon for Kindle.
