A Frenzied Bid for Murder, by Ellie Oberth
Venice Sinclair decides to join her friend, Tanya at an auction at Lock & Go Mini-storage. Buying the contents of abandoned lockers provides inventory for Tanya’s two antique shops in Las Vegas: the higher end, Tanya’s Treasures and the more miscellaneous Junque in the Trunk. When the auctioneer whips open the rollup door on the first unit, Venice and the other bidders catch their breath. This storage room has been set up as a shrine!
Tanya wins the bid. While they inventory
their haul, Venice discovers a diary in the “shrine” unit. Of course
she must read it, and soon Venice is convinced the diary reveals that
its author was murdered.
Venice’s friends are indulgent but skeptical as Venice starts to research the matter of the death. By the time they take her seriously, so does the murderer…and he is not pleased.

As Venice reads the contents of Brenda’s diary, curiosity leads to obsession to find out more about the young woman and her death.
A compelling mystery with an unusual theme and compelling plot threads.-
--Marilyn Meredith, author of the Rocky Bluff P.D. series
