When Sarah Winston turns Ellington, Massachusetts, into New England's largest garage sale for a day, it's the small town's biggest event since the start of the Revolutionary War—but without the bloodshed. That is, until a valuable painting goes missing…and the lifeless body of an Air Force officer is found in Carol Carson's painting studio, his face perfectly framed with the murder weapon—a metal picture frame.

IS ANOTHER MAN'S CLOVER Sarah is mad as heck that someone used her town-wide garage sale to commit a crime—and frame her good friend Carol. She is definitely on this case…but it's not easy rummaging through increasingly strange clues that point to cheating spouses, downright dirty investment schemes—even the mob. And Sarah will have to be very careful if she wants to live to bargain another day…

My review: The Longest Yard Sale by Sherry Harris( A Sarah Winston Garage Sale Mystery #2)


I would love to go to the yard sale. This is a good cozy mystery. Lots of suspects, mystery, characters I like, a community that we get to know and a romantic triangle.

Sarah Winston is a divorced woman who helps plan and organize garage sales.  Her ex-husband thinks they should get back together.  She is also dating the prosecutor in secret.

Sarah planned to make Ellington, Massachusetts the longest yard sale for the day.  It was her idea.  The city even paid her to do it.  The small town was crowded with people and traffic was backed up.
During the sale someone was lighting small fires around town.

Sarah's good friend Carol has a copy of the town's favorite painting that she just finished stolen that night. Carol had not signed it yet.  She doesn't report it.  The next day Carol finds a dead body in her art studio and runs across to Sarah place to show her.

Sarah's ex husband C.J Hooker is the Chief of Police.  He wants Sarah to stay out of it.  He won't give her any results on what they find.

Sarah knows that Carol is a good suspect and plans to find out others.

The book talks a little about the military base and life, thrift stores, garage sales. The book keeps your attention and guessing what is going on.
  I can't decide who I want Sarah to be with.  I can't wait till the next book.

I was given this ebook to read by Net Galley and Kensington Publisher.  In return I agreed to give a honest review of The Longest Yard Sale.
