By Jenn McKinlay, author of the Library Lover's mysteries and the Cupcake Bakery mysteries, writing as Josie Belle

Maggie Gerber-one of the founding members of the Good Buy Birls- loves her quiet life in St. Stanley, Virginia. But all that changes when Sam Collins, her old flame, moves back to town as the new sheriff. On top of that, Claire Freemont, a librarian and the newest member of the Good Buy Girls, starts acting utterly strange.

When Maggie goes to visit her the next day at the library, she finds the body of a very dead man. Turns out the man is someone from Claire's past. As the handsome new sheriff zeroes in on Claire, it's up to Maggie and the rest of the Good Buy Girls to use their bargain-hunting skills to hunt a killer-while making sure they don't pay too much in the process...

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Savvy Maggie Gerber has led her Good Buy Girls shoppers club for 20 years, and when one of their own, librarian Claire Freemont, needs them, they respond as a group. Shockingly, a man is stabbed to death in the library's basement with Claire's cake knife. Maybe more surprisingly, Claire reveals that the victim was her ex-lover, a venture capitalist from Baltimore, who had precipitated her move to this little suburb just outside Richmond. It is time to bring in a lawyer, and Maggie finds local Max Button. Soon, the women learn the victim had been putting the squeeze on their town's small business owners through his shifty practices. Mix in handsome sheriff Sam Collins, who is smart enough to use the talents of the Good Buy Girls in his investigation. VERDICT This delightful series debut could have faltered owing to an overabundance of quirky characters, but it successfully maintains a winning pace and patter throughout. Belle is a pseudonym for one of my favorites, Jennifer McKinlay. A good readalike might be Dorothy Howell's handbag mystery series.
