Starting your life over at age thirty-eight isn't easy, but that's what Sarah Winston finds herself facing when her husband CJ runs off with a 19-year-old temptress named Tiffany. Sarah's self-prescribed therapy happily involves hitting all the garage and tag sales in and around her small town of Ellington, Massachusetts. If only she could turn her love for bargain hunting into a full-time career.
One man's junk is another man's treasure
But after returning from a particularly successful day searching for yard sale treasures, Sarah finds a grisly surprise in one of her bags: a freshly bloodied shirt…that undoubtedly belongs to her ex, CJ, who now happens to be Ellington's chief of police. If that's not bad enough, it seems Tiffany has gone missing. Now it's up to Sarah to prove that her cold-hearted ex is not a cold-blooded killer…
But finding that treasure can be murder.

Sarah couldn't take her problems to the police. One of the biggest problems in her life was the Chief of Police and her ex-husband. When his shirt shows up in a garage sale bag covered in blood, Sarah can't help but think the worst...he is either dead or killed the mother of his affair baby.
This is a great mystery with extremely unexpected twists.
I did feel it definitely gave off a depressing vibe. No matter how hard Sarah tried it seems like a constant series of unfortunate events overwhelmed her. Life circumstances were definitely not on her side. Although, there is quite a bit of small town quirkiness it did not outweigh the “bad luck” so even with all the quirkiness it didn't push the story be considered humorous.
An enjoyable mystery to solve, a likable heroine and lots of garage sales, Tagged for Death provides ample entertainment for the cozy mystery fan.
