Final Bid

Thanksgiving with her fault-finding mother has Odelia Grey stewing in her own juices. But her husband’s cousin Ina—who shows up to dinner alone with ugly bruises—clearly has it worse. Things quickly go downhill after Odelia’s mother decides to extend her visit a few extra days to attend a storage auction with Ina, who owns a consignment shop. The day of the auction, the thrill of bargain hunting gives way to tragedy when Ina’s husband is found inside a storage locker—dead.


"Witty and well-plotted."—Publishers Weekly 

"Ina’s goods may be secondhand, but Jaffarian’s are first-class."—Kirkus Reviews

"Odelia and her colorful family and colleagues are as quirky and appealing as those found in Sharon Fiffer’s Jane Wheel series."—Booklist

"[A] clever, winning tale with lots of laughs along the way."—Suspense Magazine
