TO RECOVER A PRICELESS MANUSCRIPT . . .
A wealthy widow has asked Sarah Winston to sell her massive collection of mysteries through her garage sale business. While sorting through piles of books stashed in the woman's attic, Sarah is amazed to discover a case of lost Hemingway stories, stolen from a train in Paris back in 1922. How did they end up in Belle Winthrop Granville's attic in Ellington, Massachusetts, almost one hundred years later?
WILL SARAH HAVE TO PAY WITH HER LIFE?
Before Sarah can get any answers, Belle is assaulted, the case is stolen, a maid is killed, and Sarah herself is dodging bullets. And when rumors spread that Belle has a limited edition of The Sun Also Rises in her house, Sarah is soon mixed up with a mobster, the fanatical League of Literary Treasure Hunters, and a hard-to-read rare book dealer. With someone willing to kill for the Hemingway, Sarah has to race to catch the culprit—or the bell may toll for her . . .

The Gun Also Rises by Sherry Harris
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
THE GUN ALSO RISES is an engrossing and twisty cozy mystery set in Western Massachusetts (with excursions to Boston), with a lot of background on the lives and cares of military spouses. Especially exciting for me is the plot, which starts with protagonist Sarah Winston being asked by a wealthy former Southern Belle to price the lady's mysteries collection, for a charity sale to benefit the local library. The lady's much-beloved late husband was the scion of an upscale Boston family, and left an enormous collection of rare books and first editions, but Sarah is not dealing with those; or so she thinks. When Sarah discovers in the attic the Hemingway short story manuscripts, missing since 1922 in France, a train of events is set in motion that will plunge Sarah, Miss Belle, and a rare book dealer into danger (and distress and stalking by reporters and literary treasure hunters.) There's not a moment's down time till Sarah figures it out. The characters are wonderfully drawn, and the backstory is intriguing and elicits empathy.
