As part of a Blog Tour organized by Great Escapes Free Virtual Book Tours, I recently had the pleasure of reading A Good Day to Buy, the fourth book in the Sarah W. Garage Sale Mystery series by Sherry Harris.
HER BROTHER IS NO BARGAIN
When Sarah Winston’s estranged brother Luke shows up on her doorstep, asking her not to tell anyone he’s in town—especially her ex, the chief of police—the timing is strange, to say the least. Hours earlier, Sarah’s latest garage sale was taped off as a crime scene following the discovery of a murdered Vietnam vet and his gravely injured wife—her clients, the Spencers.
BUT IS HE A KILLER?
All Luke will tell Sarah is that he’s undercover, investigating a story. Before she can learn more, he vanishes as suddenly as he appeared. Rummaging through his things for a clue to his whereabouts, Sarah comes upon a list of veterans and realizes that to find her brother, she’ll have to figure out who killed Mr. Spencer. And all without telling her ex…
Sarah is an energetic and independent woman, and she is determined to figure out what happened to the home owner at the garage sale she ran that weekend. With the unexpected appearance of her brother, she is torn between her loyalty to Luke and unanswered questions about his past, and present for that matter. I liked Sarah. She is relentless in her search for the truth – both regarding Mr. Spencer’s murder and Luke’s connection to him. Military service and veterans, and tales of base life lent a unique aspect to this otherwise typical cozy mystery. It was an enjoyable read, with plenty of suspects, interesting plot twists and a satisfying resolution.
Note: Although this is fourth in series, it can be read as a standalone. (I haven’t read the previous books.)
FTC Disclosure: I received an advance review copy of this book as part of this blog tour. This has not affected the content of my review in any way.
