Death Tidies Up(2003)
(A book in the Charlotte LaRue series)
A novel by Barbara Colley
Between running her maid service and fretting about her upcoming birthday (the dreaded 6-0), Charlotte LaRue doesn't have much time for gossip. She's trying her best to forget all the rumours she's heard - she has more important things to worry about these days. Like vacuuming, window-washing...and her new job at the old Devilier house. The gorgeous historic home is being transformed into luxury apartments, and maid-for-a-day is in charge of the cleanup. Should be easy enough, Charlotte thinks-until she finds a barely cold corpse in one of the closets. The police are sure the dead man is Brew Bergeron. Funny, considering Drew supposedly died years ago - and Charlotte distinctly remembers attending his funeral. Suddenly all that gossip about the Herberts and Bergerons seems incredibly timely-and Charlotte wishes she'd listened just a little but closer...With old rivalries flaring - and past secrets suddenly back in the present - Charlotte has a feeling this job will involve some real dirty work. Good thing she has a knack for cleaning up crimes.
