Meg Langslow was actually looking forward to renovating the old Victorian mansion she and her boyfriend Michael bought. But she wasn't thrilled by the lifetime of junk accumulated by the house's eccentric previous owner, Edwina Sprocket. The easiest solution: hold the end-all and be-all of gigantic yard sales. But when the event attracts the late Miss Sprocket's money-hungry heirs, the over-enthusiastic supporters of some endangered barn owls, and customers willing to go to any lengths to uncover a hidden treasure, Meg suspects things have gotten a little out of hand. Then, an antiques dealer is found stuffed in a trunk with his head bashed in - and the yard sale turns into a days-long media circus.

I love this author and the characters in her books. This one is not the best of them but is still really good. I gave it 4 stars on one problem that I see as a fan of mystery. The book took to long to get to the mystery. Not that the story was slow at the beginning but rather was more of a development of the characters in the town, which was entertaining and was still a page turner. But I prefer more mystery then drama .
Don't get me wrong I still loved the story and will be glad to get the next book in the series. I have listened to the 1st 2 books and the last several. and I am over joyed that the 3rd &4th are finally on Audible. I now own all the books.
"Owl want to reread this book many times!"
I was pleasantly surprised to see an older book in this series be released in the audio format. I ordered it the second I knew it was available and greatly enjoyed hearing it for the first time. This is a story about a flea market on steroids. Their new house is still full of many unwanted, yet interesting items after the antique dealers have bought everything they wanted. Meg's entire family gets involved in an epic yard sale with many family members selling everything from collectible figurines to antique textiles. Mix in a dash of owl pellets and women's lingerie and you end up with murder. This is a whirlwind adventure with some suspense and a whole lot of laughter. I highly recommend this book and hope that more of the original books in the series will also be released on Audible!
