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.

My review: Tagged for Death: by Sherry Harris (A Sarah Winston Garage Sale Mystery )
Good cozy mystery. Had some twists I did not see coming. Was a clean read. I liked the characters, the community. I was not sure who to trust.
Sarah Winston is 38 and divorced. She is still hurt and mad that she did not see it coming. She is also being harassed by the police.
Her ex-husband is the police chief.
C.J. Hooker just got a dishonorable discharge. He was the former Fitch Air Force Base Security Forces squadron commander. Now the Police chief of Ellington, Massachusetts. He did not want the divorce. His girl friend is pregnant.
Now Tiffany has disappeared. Sarah found a plastic bag with Tiffany's blood on her uniform and her ex-husbands old one. She calls C.J. and gives him the clothes. Sarah starts asking questions to try and find out what is going on. She does not believe that C.J hurt anyone.
Sarah likes to go to garage sales. She also asks for donations after the garage sale for the base thrift store. She also finds some bones by the base thrift store.
Sarah helps her friend get ready for a garage sale and she is thinking of seeing if she can make it a job. Everyone asks her why she is staying and not moving away.
The setting is on Fitch Air Force Base, and Ellington surrounding area.
I sure would like to know what happens next in Sarah's life. I will be waiting for the next book.
