The Cluttered Corpse, book review

The Cluttered Corpse (Charlotte Adams Mystery, Book 2) The Cluttered Corpse by Mary Jane Maffini

Loved the humor and the organizing tips in this cozy mystery. How does one organize a bedroom that has over a thousand stuffed toys? This is the job Charlotte Adams has until someone is killed in the house, falling down the stairs, possibly slipping on one or two of the fleecy fluffy toys. Or was it a push, and murder?

Lots of action, humor, and a good plot that had me guessing till the end. I would have made the ending a bit simpler - too many crooks tend to spoil the plot. Otherwise, a good mystery that makes me want to read the first in the series, Organize Your Corpses.

A book for feng shui lovers and other organization freaks.

1000 stuffed animals???? Craziness indeed, sounds interesting and maybe a good place to start with the cozy books!!

Omigosh! That was my 14 year old daughters room until a couple of months ago! She finally decided to let her room be a bit more grown up, so we now have 5 (count 'em...5) lawn and leaf bags crammed full of stuffies! And she still has about 40 left in her room that are the "special" ones.

Great review! Sounds like an interesting and fun book!
