A Domestic Bliss Mystery #4

�Sparkles with charm, design lore, and a sleuth with a great mantra. Cozy fans will embrace the Domestic Bliss series.� �Carolyn Hart, Edgar Award-winning author of Letters from Home

�Killed by Clutter is a real winner.� �Cozy Library

�Filled with plenty of ideas about decorating, and with a good solid mystery to solve, this is a fine cozy to add to your reading list." �Sharon Katz, Reviewing the Evidence

Interior designer, Erin Gilbert can�t help but fall in love at first sight with her newest design job � a delightful little bungalow set on a quiet street.

Until she steps inside.

What looks neat and tidy as a postcard from the outside, looks like Hurricane Clutter on the inside! It seems the bungalow�s eccentric owner, widow Helen Walker, hasn�t thrown a thing out since 1942. Newspapers are piled high, almost reaching the ceiling, bric-a-brac covers every surface � there�s barely any space to walk from room to room!

What�s worse � two strange deaths in the area link back to Helen, convincing her that a serial killer is on the prowl � and every nosy friend or neighbor looks like a suspect!

But Erin is never one to back down from a challenge � even if she has to dig her way out; she vows to bring this beautiful home back to life � especially when her annoyingly handsome competitor, Steve Sullivan, barges in on the mess.

Once Erin realizes that there is, indeed, some method to her client�s madness � she knows she�s going to have to dig deep to find a clue to the killer�lest she find another dead body!

Another great mystery by Leslie Caine. I really enjoy her writing style and look forward to reading more of her books. It's also great that she keeps her books affordable for those of us with a small budget for purchasing books.

Getting rid of clutter is all the rage. I could not guess the ending of this one.

This was my second Domestic Bliss mystery and I really enjoyed it. This goes into some detail about the main character's genealogy (she was adopted). If you love the character and haven't read this one yet, you will really enjoy all the crazy characters that show up in this book. She describes in detail the rooms she is redoing, so all you HGTV addicts will LOVE this series of books!!

Colorado Interior decorator Erin Gilbert enjoys walking through a house that she is seeing for the first time and redesigning each room in her head. So when she first observes the outside home of Helen Walker, Erin is euphoric as the Crestview bungalow is a designer¿s delight. Euphoric as this seems, it is also a nice easy job though she knows she must show proper respect to the grieving owner. Then she steps inside to her horror she concludes the cluttered home needs weapons of mass destruction as Helen and her recently deceased sister kept anything and everything. The surviving sibling refuses to toss out what is classic junk clutter.------------------------ Still Helen tries to organize, mess and pitch what is obviously worthless in terms of money or sentiment. The problem is Helen insists everything has sentimental value. Helen¿s neighbor Rachel and Erin¿s two friends Teddy and Kay support the surviving sister¿ frustrating Erin who may dump her so-called pals if they don¿t mind their business. However, these intrusions are irritants the fourth invader causes colossal issues as that unknown visitor leaves behind murdered bodies amidst the clutter.------------------ The fourth Domestic Bliss mystery (see DEATH BY INFERIOR DESIGN and MANOR OF DEATH) is a charming cozy especially when Erin is cleaning the house or furthering her relationaship rivalry with competitor Steve Sullivan. However, that is also the weakness of the story line as the homicides come across as just additional clutter to clean up when the heroine gets around to it. Still Leslie Caine provides a fun domestic tale starring a harassed heroine struggling with saving a house on the verge of being KILLED BY CLUTTER, something this reviewer can relate to.------------- Harriet Klausner
