For some reason, the link to this review doesn't work, so I'm posting it here. Good thing I'm a cyber packrat!

REVIEW:
Maggie accepts a job with the local posh-knob, Mrs. Kline, cleaning her vast, mansion-like house. Mr. Kline is a bit of an oddball and collects memorabilia from times past, like iron maidens…
However, Mr. Kline faces murder charges, and Maggie is his only alibi. The detective in charge of the case has the idea that Maggie is doing naughties with Mr. Kline, hence her being his alibi. It's lucky Maggie's husband trusts her!
The detective enlists Maggie's help in finding information out about the people who move in the same circles as Mr. Kline, so she broadens her cleaning business and cleans house for several other people. Not only does she meet new folks and fill a void in her life, but she employs first a pregnant teen and then an elderly man.
However, twists and turns abound, and what is at first an apparently 'clean-cut' murder case, turns into something rather more sinister. With an excellent climax, The Misadventures of the Laundry Hag: Skeletons in the Closet is, quite simply, a must read for all people who love a good mystery and a jolly good laugh.
A really enjoyable read—laugh out loud funny—one that I'm glad to have had the privilege to review. I look forward to more of Ms. Hart's work. Excellent!
