About the Book:


Sarah Winston's garage sale business has a new client: the daughter of a couple who recently died in a tragic accident while away on a trip to Africa. Their house is full of exotic items from around the world that need to be sold off. When Sarah learns that the deceased were retired CIA agents, the job becomes more intriguing--but when an intruder breaks in and a hidden camera is found, it also becomes more dangerous. And Sarah has enough on her plate right now since she's investigating a murder on the side at the nearby Air Force base, where her status as a former military spouse gives her a special kind of access.


With so much work piling up, Sarah decides to hire some help. But her assistant, Harriet--a former FBI hostage negotiator--has a rare talent for salesmanship. Which is good, because Sarah may have to haggle for her life with Harriet's assistance . . .

Sell Low, Sweet Harriet is book 8 in the Sarah Winston Garage Sale Mysteries by Sherry Harris. As with the previous books, book 8 is another fantastic installment in the world of professional garage sale organization. In this book, Sarah is hired to organize an estate sale for a woman whose parents tragically died while on vacation. As Sarah begins to organize everything in the home, she discovers the homeowners were retired CIA agents. Sarah’s job gets more intense as the home is broken into and hidden cameras are discovered.

There was also a suspicious death over at the Air Force base. One of the military wives was found dead on base. Sarah is brought in by Special Agent Bristow and Office Scott Pellner to help assist them by keeping her eyes and ears open for any information related to the death. Both mysteries are written together well.

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 has been 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. I love all the secondary characters the author has created for this series, too. Seth, Mike “the big cheese” Titone, Stella, Awesome, and all the rest compliment this series so well. I’m glad Sarah’s love life doesn’t overpower the stories, but I wish we got more of Seth. I understand Sarah’s hesitation because of the devastating split from CJ but Seth has shown time and time again he’s worthy.

As I said about the rest of the books in the series, Sell Low, Sweet Harriet is a fantastic cozy mystery full of twists, turns, distractions, and multiple storylines. 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. The Sarah Winston Garage Sale Mysteries are one of my favorite cozy series'. The author keeps the stories fresh and entertaining. The characters are wonderful, and I love the setting.

I was provided a review copy of this book.
