Death of a Garage Sale Newbie

First in A Bargain Hunters Mystery

Written by: Sharon Dunn

Reviewed by: Rhonda Clark


Just as Sharon Dunn can’t pay retail, neither can her main character, Ginger. Ginger has honed her craft of bargain hunting into a sought after skill by her friends. Along with her protégés, Kindra, Suzanne, and Mary Margaret, they make up the Bargain Hunters Network in small town Montana.

When one of the quartet disappears, it’s up to the other three to find out what happened. With the help of a single-mom cop who’s only after the truth and a sweet, lonely widow looking for friendship the trio exposes more than one bad guy and discovers the truth of their friend‘s disappearance. You would think this would be all Ms. Dunn could fit into one novel, but it’s not.


As the ladies retrace their friend’s last steps, they find themselves distracted by their own life troubles. The secondary characters find themselves bonding with the BHN members while fighting their own home-front battles. With the search for the truth in high gear and time running out, each character finds herself wrapped tightly in God’s wonderful grace. 


In the end, more than one sinister plot comes to light as the BHN members find new friendships and strengthen existing relationships.


This was a fantastic, fun, easy read. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Every time I thought I knew where the story was going, something else popped up. For such a busy book, it was very easy to keep up with all the action. Ms. Dunn did a great job at telling a complex story.


January, 2008 will be the release of the second Bargain Hunters Mystery and I can’t wait to see what happens next to the BHN.
