Welcome to week 8 of the
with Bloggers Mary Brown, Karen M. Owen, and yours truly!

Every Monday from now through August 28,
Mary, Karen, and I
will recommend some of our favorite cozy mystery titles in eleven (11) different categories!

Today our theme is 
Yard/Garage Sale / Vintage Finds Cozies! 
We're recommending 3 books with this theme that really stand out to each of us.

My pick for favorite cozy with a
Yard/Garage Sale / Vintage Finds theme is
#1 in the Sarah Winston Garage Sale Mysteries
by Sherry Harris

Starting your life over at age thirty-eight isn't easy, but that's what Sarah Winston finds herself facing when her husband CJ runs off with a 19-year-old temptress named Tiffany. Sarah's self-prescribed therapy happily involves hitting all the garage and tag sales in and around her small town of Ellington, Massachusetts. If only she could turn her love for bargain hunting into a full-time career. 

One man's junk is another man's treasure

But after returning from a particularly successful day searching for yard sale treasures, Sarah finds a grisly surprise in one of her bags: a freshly bloodied shirt. . .that undoubtedly belongs to her ex, CJ, who now happens to be Ellington's chief of police. If that's not bad enough, it seems Tiffany has gone missing. Now it's up to Sarah to prove that her cold-hearted ex is not a cold-blooded killer. . .

But finding that treasure can be murder.

I was drawn to TAGGED TO DEATH because I love deals. I love yard sales. Okay, I love the idea of yard sales, tag sales and the like. I'm a bit of a germaphobe, so while I have had many yard sales, I don't attend them very often.

So, TAGGED TO DEATH and the other great titles in the Sarah Winston Garage Sale Mysteries allow me to enjoy the fun and trill of the hunt vicariously! Rather on one, or reading about one, who doesn't love a good treasure hunt?

In TAGGED FOR DEATH you'll meet series namesake, Sarah Winston who is a go get em protagonist who makes a life for herself in what seems to be an impossible town to do so since her ex-husband is the police chief. Thrown in murder, and of course amazing deals, and you have a cozy mystery that's a treasure to read!

Sherry also offers some great garage sale tips not only for buyers, but sellers as well! Ideas for saving, and for making money!

At the time of this posting 8/7/2017 the paperback of TAGGED TO DEATH is on sale for $6.o9 on Amazon and for international buyers for $6.o9 on Book Depository. Talk about a great deal! It's the perfect time to start this great series!

  1. Thanks, Lisa. Reading about them is the closest I get to yard sales, these days, although I always dreamed of finding treasure at one. Happy Monday.

    1. Same here, Pat. Funny thing is, while I was working on this post, my sister called me and told me we had to go to a yard sale to pick up something she bought for me. A huge all wood book case for $15! It's painted purple, but I love it! The real wood ones are just too expensive to buy new, and at a lot of yard sales.

  2. Thanks for the great pick this week (and every week).

    1. Thanks, Mary! I love that you can Karen picked different books from the same series. A series that I love too!

  3. Happy Monday! Garage sales, great topic. I used to go often.

    1. Thank you, Susan. All of our Three Amigo themes when chosen by amigo Karen M. Owen. I use to go to yard sales too. Seriously considering having one myself before the season is over.

  4. Great pick! I love this series and garage sales.

    1. Thank you, Shari! Have you noticed prices at garage sales prices have gone way up? I blame shows like American Pickers. LOL Everyone thinks they own a treasure!
