Cozy Mystery Review ~ ALL SALES FINAL by Josie Belle

All Sales Final (A Good Buy Girls Mystery, #5)
by: Josie Belle
Series: Good Buy Girls Mystery
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Release Date: September 1, 2015
Source: Publisher ~ Berkley Prime Crime

Maggie’s impending wedding finds her more concerned with a cold case than cold feet in the latest from the author of Marked Down for Murder . . .

There’s something 100% off about Maggie and her fiancĂ© Sam’s new dream home in the historic section of St. Stanley. The lights flicker, the doors blow shut, and their cat, Marshall Dillon, hisses at empty space. And there’s something in the basement that’s definitely not a bargain . . .

After Maggie discovers a skeleton in the root cellar, she’s convinced her house is haunted by a murdered man’s ghost. With the help of her Good Buy Girls, Maggie works to tag a killer. But she’ll need to be careful as she digs into the history of her new digs. Someone is willing to keep the truth buried at all costs . . .


When it comes to getting a great deal, or getting in on one, timing is everything.  The women of the Good Buy Girls Club all know this.  Well, for me, timing sucks.  Why do I say that you ask?  Well, All Sales Final marks my first time reading Josie Belle and her A Good Buy Girls Mystery Series.  The fifth book in the series is unfortunately, the last book in the series, and from what I can tell, this is a good series.  I’m definitely going to have to go back and read the other books.

All Sales Final finds Maggie Gerber less than a month away from marrying her first true love, Sam Collins.  Like most brides to be, she finds herself feeling overwhelmed. Unlike most brides to be, Maggie hasn’t done anything for her wedding.  In addition to planning a wedding, Maggie and Sam are also house hunting.  They finally find a house they can each agree on, the only kicker...it’s rumored to be haunted by a ghost.

The Dixon House has everything Maggie and Sam could ever want in a house.  There’s a big backyard, hardwood floors, a fireplace, large rooms, and even a large basement. What they don’t want is the skeleton they find in the root cellar.

Maggie and Sam start a quest to find out who the skeleton was.  They just don’t expect little questions to result in Maggie almost being killed.  You have to start to wonder if St. Stanley, Virginia will ever see a Gerber/Collins wedding.  Or, if someone from Sam’s past will convince him that St. Stanley isn’t for him.

Josie Belle is a pen name for Jenn McKinlay.  I don’t know how she does it, but with each of her stories, I find myself sitting back and enjoying the journey to the big whodunit and why reveal.  I was so intrigued with the storytelling I did not attempt  to figure out who the culprit could be.  All Sales Final combines humor, friendship, romance, and of course, mystery.  This is one of those stories you can just sit back and enjoy.  As I said before, back to the beginning I must go.

  1. Love this author! Sad to see it's the end of this particular series, but at least she has many to choose from!

    1. I know. I'm going to have go back and grab the other books in the series. Then there's the Cupcake Bakery Series. I haven't read any of those books. But I love that Jenn/Josie writes books, where a new to her reader can just pick up and get lost in and enjoy the story.
