Books from the Backlog - Tagged for Death

Today I'm linking up with Carole from Carole's Random Life of Books for Books from the Backlog.  I really enjoy the chance to feature a book that's been hiding in the piles of books for far too long!

Blurb: 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…

Why It Needs to Come Off the Shelf:  This book was a victim of early NetGalley enthusiasm where I requested far more books then I could possibly read.  I love garage sale/antique/vintage/junk store kinds of cozies and I just discovered that my library has this one on their audio site so I'm hoping to dust it off soon.


  1. It's probably a good thing I don't read the genre-I'd have a huge collection with all these gorgeous covers!

  2. Ooh, I love the sound of this one! Garage sales are treasure troves, and the mysteries are fun. Enjoy!

  3. This is one of my favorite series.

  4. I’m glad to see I wasn’t the only one who had NG enthusiasm in requesting all the books!!!

  5. Fun cover but to have to help the stupid ex? That makes me grumpy.
