Let's go garage selling

At least let's do it in a book.  This is a fun cozy based around Sara Winston and her garage sale business.  She is an ex air force wife and currently lives near a base in Mass.  The plot definitely has some twists and turns.  The author does reference previous stories but not so much that you have to have read them in order.   The garage sale items and research are a fun side note to the story as well.

The story line definitely contains military references which I could relate to as a military dependent.  I grew up on Navy bases around the US for the first 15 years of my life.  I didn't live in the same place for more than 4 years until I had graduated college.  I'm guessing this is where my love of travel originated.  It wasn't a life everyone would enjoy but we have some great memories of places we would never have lived otherwise-  like Hawaii. 

All in all I enjoyed the book and plan to read more of the series

Let’s Fake a Deal (Sarah Winston Garage Sale Mystery #7)Let’s Fake a Deal by Sherry Harris
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book i have read in this series. I enjoyed the story with its numerous plot twists.
Sara Winston is a well developed character. I felt like there was more to her than many of the cozy mystery characters. You got to see more of her thoughts and emotions than a typical cozy.
I will definitely go back and read the rest of the series.

  1. Garage sales are not one of my loves, but Sara sounds like a good character.
