Mass Market Paperback, 279 pages
Published January 2021 by Kensington Publishing Corporation
For bargain hunter extraordinaire Sarah Winston, starting life over in Ellington, Massachusetts, has been a true trash-to-treasure success story, except when there's a run on dead bodies...
Sarah's latest client, Alice Krandle, is sure she has a fortune in antiques on her hands. She's already gotten a generous offer for the whole lot before her garage sale has even begun, but she thinks she can earn more with Sarah's expert help. The problem is that while Sarah's sorting through items from decades past, her landlady, Stella, faces a clear and present danger.
Stella's kidnapper has contacted Sarah with a set of instructions, and Don't call the police is at the top of the list. But they didn't say anything about Sarah's friend Harriet--who happens to be a former F.B.I. hostage negotiator...
This is the ninth book in the Sarah Winston Garage Sale mystery series by Sherry Harris.
This book keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire time. When Sarah gets a mysterious message to not contact the police and follow his instructions in order to find her friend, she goes on a dizzying goose chase that is meant to alienate her from all she holds dear. I was totally hooked from word one.
Loved how the entire story played out and how the red herrings took me down so many possibilities. I was biting my nails the entire time.
Great book. Lovely series Loved so much about it. Definitely a must read series.
If you like cozy mysteries, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
