Professional organizer Maggie McDonald has a knack for cleaning up other people’s messes. So when the fiancée of her latest client turns up dead, it’s up to her to sort through the untidy list of suspects and identify the real killer.
Maggie McDonald is hoping to raise the profile of her new Orchard View organizing business via her first high-profile client. Professor Lincoln Sinclair may be up for a Nobel Prize, but he’s hopeless when it comes to organizing anything other than his thoughts. For an academic, he’s also amassed more than his share of enemies. When Sinclair’s fiancée is found dead on the floor of his home laboratory—electrocuted in a puddle of water—Maggie takes on the added task of finding the woman’s murderer. To do so, she’ll have to outmaneuver the suspicious, obnoxious police investigator she’s nicknamed “Detective Awful” before a shadowy figure can check off the first item on their personal to-do list—Kill Maggie McDonald.

This is the second novel in the Maggie McDonald mystery series and after the whammy of the first in the series I was hoping this book would be just as good as the first, and let me tell you, this book didn’t dissapoint! This series just keeps getting better and better. Once again I read long into the night to finish the book in one setting because I just couldn’t get enough! This mystery had a ton of twists and turns to keep me guessing right up to the very end, but as I said before, the real stars of this series are the characters. Each character was written with such care and love that they really jump from the page and they, like the books, just keeping getting better. I can’t wait to dive back into Maggie’s world in the next book, Dead Storage, scheduled for July 2017! And if you haven’t read the first book in the series, Address to Die For, what are you waiting for? Go one-click these two now and get reading!
