TO RECOVER A PRICELESS MANUSCRIPT . . .
A wealthy widow has asked Sarah Winston to sell her massive collection of mysteries through her garage sale business. While sorting through piles of books stashed in the woman's attic, Sarah is amazed to discover a case of lost Hemingway stories, stolen from a train in Paris back in 1922. How did they end up in Belle Winthrop Granville's attic in Ellington, Massachusetts, almost one hundred years later?

WILL SARAH HAVE TO PAY WITH HER LIFE?
Before Sarah can get any answers, Belle is assaulted, the case is stolen, a maid is killed, and Sarah herself is dodging bullets. And when rumors spread that Belle has a limited edition of The Sun Also Rises in her house, Sarah is soon mixed up with a mobster, the fanatical League of Literary Treasure Hunters, and a hard-to-read rare book dealer. With someone willing to kill for the Hemingway, Sarah has to race to catch the culprit—or the bell may toll for her . . .

 From Nancy Drew to Ernest Hemingway, this mystery will appeal to the book lovers among us.
Ranging from simple paperbacks to million dollar, or priceless, rare first editions, the estate of Belle Winthrop Granville and family has something for all tastes and budgets. Sarah Winston thinks she has been invited to discover and catalogue the collection of books for a charity auction. She begins to feel a bit out of her depth until she is informed that she needs only concern herself with the "lesser" books.
A rare book collector is in charge of the more pricey editions.
Before the first day of work is complete, Sarah discovers that some of her other special skills are called upon for this job.
With an abundance of literary references, much compassion and some life endangering action. Sarah finds herself in the middle of a present day mystery, a cold case mystery, and the very uncomfortable position of not knowing who she can trust. Is she sharing a house with a murderer or more?

Her friend Awesome is indeed awesome in this exciting novel.  He also has his hands full as the mysteries and unsolved cases connect and the danger escalates.
The mansion in this novel was as good as the characters. From Sherry's descriptions, I wanted to explore every hallway and room.
Who has the case and what the papers inside mean kept me intrigued until the end. The bonus story about relationships, PTSD and more wonderfully rounded out this book.

I am eager to read the next book in this series.
