Description
Dust mops are deadly in this "irresistible" (Minneapolis Star Tribune ) and "wickedly witty" ( Chicago Sun-Times ) cozy mystery featuring the beloved Ellie Haskell--the signature heroine of Agatha Award nominee Dorothy Cannell. When the ever-scrupulous and ever-caustic Mrs. Roxie Malloy leaves her employ in tears, Ellie Haskell--busy mother of twins--is forced to find another cleaning person. As she searches for someone who can at least aspire to taking Mrs. Malloy's place, Ellie turns the household topsy-turvy, overcome with spring-cleaning fever. But when members of the Chitterton Fells Charwomen's Association (C.F.C.W.A.) start biting the dust, Ellie swaps scrubbing for sleuthing to find out what dark secrets have been swept under the rug. With the help of her husband, Ben, her feckless cousin Freddy, and an assortment of homemade cleaning solutions, Ellie joins the C.F.C.W.A.'s roster and embarks on a brief stint as a mercenary maid--just long enough to snoop through her neighbors' things and find out which one has more than dust bunnies and dirty dishes to hide. Praise for The Spring Cleaning Murders "Irresistible . . . Pick up [ The Spring Cleaning Murders ] and let the dust bunnies lie where they fall." --Minneapolis Star Tribune "Wickedly witty . . . outrageous plotting." -- Chicago Sun-Times
