All Sales Final: Book Review

All Sales Final book cover
When I read the back of All Sales Final (Good Buy Girls) by Josie Belle, I thought it was the perfect Halloween cozy mystery.

About the Book: Maggie and her fiancee, Sam's, wedding is fast-approaching, and Maggie doesn't even have a wedding dress picked out yet!  On top of all the wedding planning she has to do, she and Sam purchase a new home.  They believe they've found their dream home, but Maggie quickly notices that their cat, Marshall Dillon, acts strangely in the house.  He seems quite scared in the new home and hisses at things that aren't there.  

Then Maggie discovers a skeleton in their basement!  As she tries to help Sam and the rest of the police force discover the identity of the body as well as what happened, she quickly realizes that someone doesn't want her unraveling these mysteries.  

My Thoughts: This is the first book I've read in the Good Buy Girls mystery series, and I had no problem following the storyline or getting to know the characters.  You can definitely read this book as a stand-alone.

I really enjoyed this book.  It left me guessing until the very end.  The ending really surprised me.  I love the cozy feeling this mystery provided.  I felt like I was trying to solve the case with a bunch of girlfriends I had always known.

I would have loved to see more of Marshall Dillon in the book.  We didn't get to see much of him, and that was disappointing to me as I always love cats in mysteries.

I loved the mix of the character's personalities.  The Good Buy Girls are similar in some ways, but they are also a diverse group of women, which makes their gatherings and conversations interesting.

I found Sam's skeptical attitude about the ghost in their new home a little frustrating because he seemed to be making light of Maggie's fears.  I also found Maggie's unwillingness to make decisions about her upcoming wedding a little frustrating, but it does eventually fall into place.

Overall, this is a very enjoyable book.  I would recommend it to anyone who loves cozy mysteries and haunted houses and ghosts.

I am disappointed to have learned that this is the last book in the Good Buy Girls mystery series.  However, there are four other books in the series I haven't read, and I look forward to reading those in the future.

FTC Disclosure: I received a copy of "All Sales Final (Good Buy Girls)" free of charge for an honest and fair review.  Receiving the free book did not influence my opinions in any way.  All opinions shared on Fur Everywhere are my own.
