From Book Two
Jennifer Shannon discovers hundreds of diamonds hidden inside and innocent garage sale purchase in McLean, VA. Terrorists, furious after treasure’s accidental inclusion at the sale, must wrest the diamonds back in order to fund their explosive plot against America. From the strife-torn Middle East to the comforts of affluent McLean, conflicting philosophies clash with devastating effects. As danger to Jennifer and her family escalates, she must rely upon her ingenuity and inventiveness to hurdle the frightening obstacles thrown across her path. This mystery thriller is the second in the exciting Garage Sale Mystery series.
From Book Three
Jennifer Shannon buys an old framed picture at an estate sale, discovering a mysterious map and riddle hidden inside. Flying to Naples, Florida, to rescue her aging mother from a devious criminal preying on seniors, she sits on the plane beside William Early, who boasts he’s a wealthy, powerful Civil War artifact collector who “always gets what he wants, whatever it takes.” Moving her mother from her long-time Florida home to Virginia, present serious challenges as Jennifer protects her from criminals, while researching riddle and map clues to an apparent Civil War treasure. But William Early lusts after the rare valuables she seeks.
Marshalling his vast resources, he’s determined to wrest the treasure away from Jennifer, by any means, including murder. Can Jennifer outwit him to save her mother, her family, herself and the historic treasure?
As a military wife for 21 years, Suzi Weinert moved often, shopping for practical items at military thrift shops and eventually for unique treasures at garage and estate sales. When her husband retired, she and her family lived for 25 years in McLean, Virginia, the setting for her novels. Now with her children grown and flown, she and her husband live in northern Virginia.
“Every sale reflects a story,” she says and apparently, Hallmark agrees. Based on Suzi’s work, their Garage Sale Mystery Series starring Lori Loughlin currently airs seven original TV movies on their Hallmark Movie & Mystery Channel, with more on the way. Suzi is a member of Mystery Writers of America and Sisters in Crime.
