by Mary Feliz

Right off the bat, I enjoyed the tempo of author Mary Feliz’s writing. No wasted words or dragging scenes. Just a fast paced story both well written, and thought out.

For professional organizer Maggie McDonald, moving her family into a new home should be the perfect organizational challenge. But murder was definitely not on the to-do list . . .
Maggie McDonald has a penchant for order that isn’t confined to her clients’ closets, kitchens, and sock drawers. As she lays out her plan to transfer her family to the hundred-year-old house her husband, Max, has inherited in the hills above Silicon Valley, she has every expectation for their new life to fall neatly into place. But as the family bounces up the driveway of their new home, she’s shocked to discover the house’s dilapidated condition. When her husband finds the caretaker face-down in their new basement, it’s the detectives who end up moving in. What a mess! While the investigation unravels and the family camps out in a barn, a killer remains at large—exactly the sort of loose end Maggie can’t help but clean up . . .

How many like moving day? I for one dread it. The kids are cranky, the anticipation of a new home is scary  and all the details can be overwhelming. Maggie just happens to be a professional organizer , so everything will be just fine. Will that be Maggie's famous last words before chaos begins? The story is a real attention grabber from the start with Maggie and her family.  They are moving to a 100 year old house that her husband inherited . What an adventure they will find when they see the house. Well Maggie, you can't expect it to be in perfect condition, now can you? After all it is old, probably has cobwebs and maybe a few minor repairs.

As they are inspecting the house an unexpected item catches their attention. Should the house come with a dead body? Well this one sure does. Who do they find dead in their new home? Do the neighbors know anything that will help the case? The story is fast paced and has great character development. I loved the twists and turns in the story that had me guessing till the end . Get ready for a great mystery with secrets galore. The townspeople aren't all as they seem to say  they are, so suspects abound in this great cozy mystery. I'm not sure but maybe someone wants the family to leave. It sure is suspicious when rocks  shatter windows, the mailbox explodes and other unexplained creepy things keep happening. Maybe moving wasn't such a great idea after all. Maggie is a great character that is strong and sure is determined to find out what is going on in her new home. Can she solve the murder? Will her family ever feel welcomed in the neighborhood? Be sure and get yourself comfortable as you read this hard to put down book.
