Cover Reveal — Absence of Alice

Linda Herold is the winner of the ebook. Look for an email from me, Linda! Thanks to all who commented!

I’m so excited to share the cover for the ninth Sarah Winston Garage Sale mystery Absence of Alice! Look for a giveaway at the end of the post. Here’s a bit about the book:

For bargain hunter extraordinaire Sarah Winston, starting life over in Ellington, Massachusetts, has been a true trash-to-treasure success story, except when there’s a run on dead bodies . . .

Sarah’s latest client, Alice Krandle, is sure she has a fortune in antiques on her hands. She’s already gotten a generous offer for the whole lot before her garage sale has even begun, but she thinks she can earn more with Sarah’s expert help. The problem is that while Sarah’s sorting through items from decades past, her landlady, Stella, faces a clear and present danger.

Stella’s kidnapper has contacted Sarah with a set of instructions, and “Don’t call the police” is at the top of the list.  But they didn’t say anything about Sarah’s friend Harriet—who happens to be a former FBI hostage negotiator . . .

And here is the cover:

Lou Malcangi, the Art Director for Kensington Publishing, is the mastermind behind each of my covers. I never think he can top the last one, but he always does.

  1. It would have to be the type writer for me – learned to type on a manual. Can’t wait to read this series, thanks for the chance to own one

  2. Do you mean besides the house? Then it would be the wagon – a nice spot to put some pretty Spring flowers out on my front lawn!

  3. Love the typewriter.. learned on a manual….typed term papers on a manual. Kids don’t know what they missed out on……changing ribbons, correcting mistakes…….

  4. YAY! I love the cover! I would pick the typewriter. Never owned one but always wanted to put one next to some books.

  5. I enjoy this series and look forward to you new release! Congratulations!
    I like the cabinet, probably too pricey for me, but I like the look.
