Buried under Clutter, A Tina Tales Mystery by Jan Christensen

Buried Under Clutter - Jan Christensen

Buried under Clutter, A Tina Tales Mystery by Jan Christensen is the second in the series.  The first was Organized to Death.  Other than a few references that can be understood through context, this is a stand alone book.   It is an intriguing, page-turning cozy mystery with a murder in the house next door.   I gave it five stars because it kept me guessing.


"The smell coming from the house was getting to her.  She approached the doorway & peeked inside.   Recoiled.   The place was crammed with junk, piled to the ceiling in the hallway.  It smelled like a dumpster in there.   Tina backed away & caught her mother's eye.  Laura frowned & raised her eyes heavenward.   So she knew Mrs. Blackwell had been a hoarder."


Hoarding is a subject that is misunderstood.   It can be started by a brain injury or a severe emotional loss.  It takes a great deal of work, a lot of assistance, possible therapy, & understanding to remedy.


I received a complimentary kindle copy from the publisher Victory Editing & NetGalley. That did not change my opinion for this review.
