The Clutter Corpse by Simon Brett

She's created a business for herself by cleaning up houses that hoarders live in.  When she goes out on a new job, she has no idea that she will find a dead body under some clutter.  It wasn't hurt by the clutter, it was an overdose.

Severn House and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published June 2nd.

If that wasn't bad enough she runs across another dead body.  Two bodies in a week make the police suspicious.  Why was she the one who found them?  Did she kill them?

This story gets into dysfunctional families and fractured friendships.  The only way she can clear herself is to find the killer(s).  So she begins asking questions and putting clues together.

I was surprised by the identity of the killers.  I was also surprised when her good friend turned out not to be.  Being betrayed by a friend hurts.  But the father of the dead girl is hurt by an even closer betrayal.

She finds the killers but the book doesn't end happily ever after.  However, justice was served.
