5/5 Online Garage Sales
On The Back:
Her Next Sale
When Sarah Winston started the virtual garage sale, it seemed like a keystroke of genius and the next logical step in her business. No more collapsing card tables and rainy-day washouts. But what began as a fun way to run garage sales during the long New England winter has become a nightmare of managing people and putting out fires. Online, she can avoid the crowds–but not the crazies.
May Be Her Last
She certainly never bargained on dealing with frightening threats. And when a client is murdered, it’s time for Sarah to swallow her pride and seek the help of her ex–C.J. Hooker, chief of police. Forging a tense alliance, they search–online and off–for the killer. But solving this crime before someone else gets tagged seems virtually impossible…

Sherry Harris has been one of the best new cozy mystery authors to come out in the recent years. Her first book was dynamite, the second not quite as good, but it was still high-quality work, and the third I can now say was excellent, also.
Sarah Winston is a little bit different than most cozy MCs. Yes, she follows the typical stereotype of being divorced when the series starts, but unlike many other MCs, her ex is still very much in the picture. Though I don’t necessarily care for the ex, it’s a nice change and it adds a bit more tension to the entire plotline of the story.
The secondary characters are also wonderful they all are solid and well-developed, without taking center stage too often. I absolutely love Ellington. The author keeps most of the village unknown to the reader, but what we do know is it’s a quaint, very livable type of town that I love to read about!
The mystery was well put together and the killer took me by surprise. The entire mystery was set up in such a way that genuinely sent chills down your spine. I loved it! Overall an absolutely wonderful book. Highly recommend this book and the series!
