THE GUN ALSO RISES is an engrossing and twisty cozy mystery set in Western Massachusetts (with excursions to Boston), with a lot of background on the lives and cares of military spouses. Especially exciting for me is the plot, which starts with protagonist Sarah Winston being asked by a wealthy former Southern Belle to price the lady's mysteries collection, for a charity sale to benefit the local library. The lady's much-beloved late husband was the scion of an upscale Boston family, and left an enormous collection of rare books and first editions, but Sarah is not dealing with those; or so she thinks. When Sarah discovers in the attic the Hemingway short story manuscripts, missing since 1922 in France, a train of events is set in motion that will plunge Sarah, Miss Belle, and a rare book dealer into danger (and distress and stalking by reporters and literary treasure hunters.) There's not a moment's down time till Sarah figures it out. The characters are wonderfully drawn, and the backstory is intriguing and elicits empathy.
