    Not to be missed!

    small-business, Massachusetts, cozy-mystery, amateur-sleuth, women-sleuths, law-enforcement Two of my favorite things: murder mystery and garage sales! Good mystery plot filled in with sleuth's personal history and adjustments (like divorce, no longer an Air Force wife, previous murder involvements, and knowing a mob guy). The publisher's blurb is pretty good at gaining reader interest, but the book is better than that. Sure, there are the expected twists and red herrings, but the characters alone would save the day if that was necessary. Loved it! Now I have to go find more by this author! I requested and received a free ebook copy from Kensington Books via NetGalley. Thank you!

    history and mystery

    Sarah Winston is hired to pack up and price books for a library sale by a wealthy local. But as Sarah is going through the books, she comes across an older trunk with long lost writings from Ernest Hemingway. After leaving the find with the home owner, Miss Belle is knocked down by her housekeeper who runs off with the case of Papa’s works. But no sooner did the housekeeper run off with the goods, when she is found dead in the woods behind the house. To add more icing to the literary cake, it looks like there is a copy of The Sun Also rises that should be in the house somewhere. With the books and murder, Sarah isn’t quite sure who to trust and no one seems to know where the book or case of writings is. But will Sarah be able to identify the murderer before she someone closes the chapter on Sarah’s life? I have read a few other boosk in this series and each one is better than the last one. Solid character development and a story that keeps you thinking and wondering who done it until close to the end. A great read and fantastic setting for this series.

    Sixth book in series

    The Gun Also Rises is a busy novel. Sarah has a full plate as she deals with missing manuscripts, her brother, a murder, preparing for a very special sale to help a veteran bring his dog to America, pricing Miss Belle’s mystery collection, evading the literary treasure hunters, hunting down the rare Hemingway book and trying not to be the killer’s next victim. The Gun Also Rises can be read as a standalone if you have not read any of the previous A Sarah Winston Garage Sale Mysteries. I find Sarah’s garage sale business interesting. She never knows what treasures she will find. I wanted to buy all the books in Miss Belle’s fictional attic. I found The Gun Also Rises to be easy to read with steady pacing throughout most of the book (a little slow in the middle). I loved all the mystery novels mentioned throughout the book (Trixie Belden and Agatha Christie are just two examples) as well as the details on Louisa May Alcott and historical sites that people can visit. There are also some clever Gone with the Wind references. The murder of Kay and the missing manuscripts leads readers on a merry chase as we follow the clues to figure out who is behind these appalling deeds. I do wish it had been harder to identify the guilty parties, and I was unsatisfied with the ending (spoilers). I was glad to see a move forward in Seth and Sarah’s romantic life. Sarah’s ex-husband has left town (finally) and Sarah can finally move forward romantically with her life. I appreciated the author highlighting the role of military spouses and the support they need when their significant other is serving overseas. There is also a storyline about a veteran suffering from PTSD who is missing the dog he had in Iraq. Sara is organizing a sale to help unite the man with his beloved canine. Readers will find themselves laughing at Sarah’s various escapades. Buckle your seatbelt for a humorous and fast paced romp with Sarah in The Gun Also Rises.
