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
