Reviews - What do customers think about Death of a Garage Sale Newbie (A Bargain Hunters Mystery)?
Who knew a garage sale item would lead to murder? Nov 3, 2008
This book was listed as a book similar to another book I'd read this year. (I honestly can't remember, sorry!) Anyway, I was in the mood for a quickish mystery, so off to the library I went to check out this book. It started out decently, three friends who love to bargain shop and their 4th friend is missing, soon to be found dead with an arrow in her back. I have to admit, I think this is the first murder mystery that I've read that the murder weapon is a bow. Anyway. The story continues on, with a police officer who is struggling to connect with her son and keep him out of trouble, an older lady who is missing her husband who passed away 15 years ago, and the grieving 3 friends. They've determined that the reason the friend was killed had to have been important, so they go through the final garage sale purchases of the deceased and try to put the clues together. While I enjoyed this book, I just found it a bit too forced. Perhaps I've just read too many other mysteries. I wanted to find out the ending, but at the same time, I didn't necessarily care if I did. It almost seemed as though there was just too much going on in this book. Too many 'issues'. I don't know that I'll continue reading the Bargain Hunters Mysteries series or not. Perhaps when my book pile is low and I'm in the mood for a mystery that is really light...
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN GIRLFRIENDS GET TOGETHER Aug 18, 2008
This was the first time I had read a book by Sharon Dunn and it will not be my last. You feel like you are a part of the friendship and want to help solve the mystery.
Skip this book. May 3, 2008
This one was tossed into the trash unfinished. I could almost handle the author's over-saccharine version of Christianity; but when the wife barely survives an attack and her jerk of a husband crabs that she has been neglecting him rather than being concerned about her safety, I tossed the book. I have zero interest in reading about a nitwit character who honestly thinks her husband has the right to complain about his 'feelings' when she is still shaking from an attack.
Garage Sales Can Be Dangerous Sep 27, 2007
Death of a Garage Sale Newbie By; Sharon Dunn Who would think a passion for garage sale bargains could be dangerous? In Death of a Garage Sale Newbie, Sharon Dunn gives yard sales and clearance shopping an entirely new perspective. Ginger, Kindra, Suzanne and Mary Margret make up the eclectic group of shoppers called the Bargain Hunters Network. But when Mary Margret disappears after a solo shopping trip, Ginger is left with a confusing cell answering machine message. After Mary Margret's body is discovered and the police close the case as an accident, the Network takes it into their own hands to solve the mystery. Each new clue points towards an twenty-year old secret in their quaint community and a coverup that included murder. Follow the humorous and tragic escapades of these three women determined to solve their friend's murder and find the best bargains. Along the journey they also learn a bit about themselves and the bold faith God calls them to. You will laugh, cry and be sure you know the solution only to find yourself befuddled on the next page. And as you close the book on the mystery and the story you will want to befriend these women yourself. Sharon Dunn did an excellent job crafting a mystery in the most unlikely of places. Readers will enjoy this excursion from the opening page and will eagerly await the next mystery. Chandra Lynn Smith
Fun Read Jul 17, 2007
A good book to read at the beach or pool. I enjoyed the book and the idea was new and creative. Will read more books in the series. The pace of the book was good, I didn't want to put it down, wanted to keep reading and reading to find out who-done-it! See my blog for giveaway [...].
