{Whatcha Reading?} Organized to Death by Jan Christensen

From the book's Amazon description --

Back in her hometown of Newport, RI, Tina Shaw, twenty-nine, is picking up the pieces of her shattered life. She begins her first job as a professional organizer in a house filled with cardboard boxes and clutter, only to discover a dead body in an eerily neat baby nursery. She fears this career move may be a short one until the handsome but spooky new doctor persuades her to reorganize his office left in disarray by the former physician.

Ignoring the doctor's obvious interest in her, Tina begins seeing her former boyfriend. When he protests against her new profession, she realizes what a control freak he is. Then there's another old flame who is making her hotter by the minute. As she works through the office clutter, she learns the doctor has a possible motive for the killing. But when someone else is shot, the doctor has a solid alibi--Tina herself. Drawn unwillingly into the case, she searches for answers as her list of suspects multiplies. When the killer begins targeting Tina and her friends, she works harder to learn the murderer’s identity before someone else is found dead.

An eerily neat baby nursery? That was definitely enough to catch my interest. Abandoned nurseries are one of those things that always makes me stop and pick up a book. And while I'm not about to hop on the decluttering bandwagon, I did find Organized to Death extremely entertaining. It's less about throwing things out and more about the mystery, which involves the murder victim, the homeowner, and Tina herself.
