About the Book:
TO RECOVER A PRICELESS MANUSCRIPT . . .
A wealthy widow has asked Sarah Winston to sell her massive collection of mysteries through her garage sale business. While sorting through piles of books stashed in the woman's attic, Sarah is amazed to discover a case of lost Hemingway stories, stolen from a train in Paris back in 1922. How did they end up in Belle Winthrop Granville's attic in Ellington, Massachusetts, almost one hundred years later?
WILL SARAH HAVE TO PAY WITH HER LIFE?
Before Sarah can get any answers, Belle is assaulted, the case is stolen, a maid is killed, and Sarah herself is dodging bullets. And when rumors spread that Belle has a limited edition of The Sun Also Rises in her house, Sarah is soon mixed up with a mobster, the fanatical League of Literary Treasure Hunters, and a hard-to-read rare book dealer. With someone willing to kill for the Hemingway, Sarah has to race to catch the culprit—or the bell may toll for her . . .The Gun Also Rises by Sherry Harris
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Sarah Winston Garage Sale Mystery Series of one of my favorites cozy series' and I devoured The Gun Also Rises.
When Sarah is hired to manage an enormous book sale by Belle Winthrop Granville, one of Ellington, Massachusetts' elite citizens, she's shocked to find rare Hemingway manuscripts among the books and dust. She barely gets a glimpse when Belle is assaulted and the case of manuscripts is stolen. With the manuscripts on the run, Sarah puts herself in danger to chase the thief. Murder, mayhem, and of course, mystery abounds in The Gun Also Rises, another excellent book in the Sarah Winston Garage Sale Mystery series.
I really enjoy the Garage Sale Mysteries by Sherry Harris. As a lover of garage sales, yard sales, flea markets, etc., a cozy setting of this nature makes me happy. Sarah is a great protagonist and is written in such a way that I feel like I know her personally. She has very realistic characteristics and the author really brings Sarah to life. The secondary characters are also realistically written.
As I said about the rest of the books in the series, The Gun Also Rises is a fantastic cozy mystery that is full of twists, turns, distractions, and red herrings. There are suspenseful, humorous, and heartbreaking moments that are sure to keep the reader engaged. The author sets up many of the characters as the potential suspect and expertly pulls the tablecloth out from underneath them without spilling the truth until it's time.
